A little of my life

This bail-out thing is not looking good to me. I don't know about you, but for our government to -- all of a sudden -- start using taxpayer money to bail out companies that are in trouble seems wrong to me. Of course, next week there will be other news, but this does seem to be a problem. What do you think?

I want to say how blessed I feel to be able to work with people on their marriages and other problems in their life. It makes me so humble to know that they will actually travel to get counseling. I know that when someone is in turmoil, they need to get that taken care of before they can go on dealing with other aspects of their lives. We need to appreciate our own life when it is stable and balanced.

I'd like to introduce my family: my husband: (DH), Gary, draws houseplans for a living. He works very hard for he and I to have a good life. He actually built our house with his own two hands. He had some land in the country (30 acres) left to him by his father and allowed to use by his mother, and he decided to go ahead and build his dreamhouse on the pond. He started building about six years ago. Then he and I met, married, and began planning our life together. I had always wanted to live in the country, and he made it a reality for me. We moved in two and one-half years ago.

Here is our house in the country: with two cats in the yard -- life used to be so hard -- now everything is easy 'cause of you...... (remember that song?)

It's still not completely finished, but most of it is. He has a workshop behind the garage that is not finished yet. I know he will enjoy it so much when we do get it done. He had a workshop in his last house, and really used it a lot. He builds anything you can imagine from wood. He has built furniture -- reproduction furniture like beds, high boys, etc. He also plays keyboard, he is the most talented musician anywhere. You would say so, too, if you heard him. I'll show you here one day. He is a good Christian man, loves his children, and my children and my grandchildren. (That is a real plus for him, huh?) He lets me keep my goats and even enjoys them, too. I feel blessed to have found him.
I'll write about my children and grandchildren later. Are you ready to be blown away? They are really great!

My Closet is Clean

So are my goats. They got their spa bath this afternoon, since it was so nice outside. I wanted to do it last week, but I thought I had a few more days of warmer weather. When it turned cooler, I knew I'd better get it done!

By the way, my Alpine has what looks like an infection under her tail. I've never noticed this on my other goats, so I'm kind of at a loss. I keep cleaning it, but it keeps coming back. I'm going to look around on the net tonight to see if I can figure this out, but if I can't, I guess I'll call my vet tomorrow.

Husband Cleaning

Ladies everywhere!!! Pleeeeeeeese help -- pray for me!!! My husband is in a tyrade trying to clean -- he has decided that everything in this house needs to be organized. While this sounds good on the outside, he has decided to start in MY CLOSET! Things are being thrown every which way! Heeeeeeelp!

Louisiana is cool!

Today is a cool morning, making the "chore" of milking not so difficult. Lucy got up as soon as I told her to this morning, on her own. She actually decided to walk outside the barn on her own, which was a first. I am still blown away. The hen does not leave me any eggs any more, for about a week. I know she is eating them, because I saw her do it once. I bought some oyster shell to put out. I'll be going into town today to meet with clients. I'll be taking my son some milk that we have finally collected for him.

I Can't Believe It!

I really can't believe it! All of a sudden for the past three days, Lucy has been getting up. She gets up for a few minutes when we go out every 2 hours and tell her to. I think she is getting better. Also, for some other news:

This is my new Nubian, Martha. She has a sister named Mary.

This is my new 2 year old milk goat, my first Alpine! I got her Saturday from Vicksburg. She is getting used to the place. She is kind of shy, but very sweet! And gives wonderful milk!
I also got another younger Alpine, Salina, but she is at another farm at the moment. She is also beautiful!
