Our Newest Project

First, thank you for all the support on the last post. Knowing there are other awesome women out there who have struggled and moved through the hard times, gives my journey hope! Thanks.

Now, just a quick warning. Get ready to oooohhhhh and ahhhhh. This could possibly be the cutest little thing you've ever seen, except for our own little babies, of course, but this little guy even gives them a run for their money!

I know, I know. I've already watched it a hundred times and I'm the one feeding the little sucker at 6 a.m. every morning. Albert is just a visitor at our farm. Our friends who raise sheep took a long overdue vacation to Oregon and asked us if we would watch over their newest bottle lamb. For the past week, we literally haven't gotten shit done around here because we are too busy playing with this lamb.

The first couple of nights it was just way too cold for him to sleep outside with the other sheep, despite that thing he has called a wool coat? So, he had to sleep in our mudroom with the dogs, literally, with the dogs, in their beds. I'm pretty sure he thinks he is a dog. We work in the yard or go about doing chores and he just follows us around the yard, crying, if we get too far away and he can't see us but as soon as we call him he comes running.

Well, today, Albert has to go home and I'm not sure how any of us are going to react to that. Yes, actually I do know how we are all going to react to that - there will be tears.

But have no fear. When one exciting animal leaves the place? You can be sure there is something else exciting right around the corner. Look what I went to see about buying on Wednesday!

Yes, we are moving into the Dairy Goat world, folks. It should be interesting and because you are so lucky, you will have a front seat to adventure.

We are off to Ashland, Wisconsin for the Memorial Day weekend. Camping, biking, hiking, canoeing and kayaking for 3 whole days! Have a great safe holiday weekend.
