This coming Friday Joel is going in to have surgery on his ankle to fix it. It had been bothering him for a couple years now. Sense it will be a while before he can do much outside I have called in reinforcements. 😁 My Dad is going to come help get Joel up the steep terrace that the house is on. He will also do any tractor work that might be needed; like feeding a bale to the goats or horses, and blow any snow we might get. I am hoping that the snow is done though.
Yesterday Joel and I moved and cut wood. We buy our wood from the Amish down the road that own a mill. We buy 10 foot bundles and cut them twice to fit in the furnace. We stacked five bundles and cut one but left it unstacked. We should be set for another month or two depending on the weather. With the weather in the 30's we are going through less wood.
Course with the warmer weather the snow we had is melting. I am hoping these strong winds will help dry it up soon. The chickens are enjoying the freedom to get out. With the cold they only moved from the coop to the barn and back. But now they are all over.
But with the wind they are still sticking close to the barn.
With the warmer weather the goats are moving around more. I can see them in the grove from my kitchen sink now.
They are getting bigger too. They are sampling the same food as there mom's.
I am watching them as they grow. It amazes me how big they are getting. they are about half the
size of their mom's though only two months old. I am planning on selling the black and white which is a boy. I will probably only keep one girl sense the other has something up with her feet.
Well that is what's going on with us sense the weather has warmed up. How are you enjoying the warmer weather? Do you have any plans for the spring?
