Tuesday Can't Go Fast Enough ~ Baby Goat Gets a Name
As you can tell by my blogpost title, there are two of us who dread this week and next - driver's education classes.
They are very long nights for the both of us, but she gets more driving time. Besides, she does need more night time driving experience. Last night she got experience with driving in rain on the highway, and today it is snowing. I was surprised to see that I was the only parent having their teen drive there and home. Maybe I am already over the nerve ending part of it....she's the 3rd to learn to drive.
My cough is driving me nuts, but I am going to walk today (or attempt it anyway). I read somewhere that if your illnesses is below the neck (cough, chest congestion, etc.) that you should not exercise. I plan to take it easy, but I need to walk at least 1 mile per day.
Hubby gave me gruff about not putting time into my writing, but as you can see in the photo, days are dreary here this week. Sunshine helps with a lot in life.
Little baby goat got a name - Primrose. "Prim" for short.
Yesterday I paid bills, did laundry, brought wood in, did a lot of filing I put off, then baked some banana muffins. One daughter painted a cupboard door for me. I did a very small amount of writing, and then it was already time to let my daughter drive to her class. And on those nights, I get to bottle feed "Prim" and fill the hay net, and feed her buck. She tells me that she wants me to do the job, because I am the "farmgirl" (as she puts it).
Today, I have more laundry, as I am using 3 inside drying racks. School is back in session, so the house should be less helter skelter, and I may just get writing completed. I do need to add a second coat of paint to a drawer and put a door back up (that job is almost done!).
Update on Lola: we had to remove her chicken saddle/apron. She absolutely hated it, and was looking very badly from the stress of it. I just hope her feathers grow back soon....poor Lola.
