Wednesday What's Up
This week has already been full of work, wonder and busy, busy things. Morning chores bring delicious milk to the kitchen; fresh yogurt and soft cheeses have been culturing.
A tasty batch of Chevre finds it's way to home made breads and whole grain crackers..perfect snacks after a morning of cleaning stalls.
Afternoons find me at the cutting table; press, measure, stack..trying to get the project on the right track. All of the main blocks are cut and ready to piece..still to do are the applique and border cuttings.
The garden is still producing peppers, okra, cherry tomatoes and watermelons. Heat, dry, and pests are causing a drastic halt to many of our earlier crops.
Later in the day we are spending a little time getting to know our new boys. The lighter colored buck (Mathias) is not convinced we won't eat him.
Leonidas is warming up a bit. He likes to be scratched right between the horns..and, of course, to eat right out of your hand.
The rest of the herd are absolutely disgusted; no valid reason for us to bring more pasture pals home for them to share with.
It seems that things are just plain busy. Home school books are piling up on the table..spontaneous trips to the lake and the pool are being launched as much as possible..college books are arriving daily at my gate (Doc ensures no man enters..no man.).
Amid it all we are trying to spend as much wonderful time together as we can.
What are you squeezing into your day today?
