Goats Don’t Get a Lollipop or a Sticker

So unfair.  It’s hard to be a goat on doctor day, but there is one plus; the vet comes to your house and you don’t have to go out. Earlier this week our goats had their yearly checkups.  They were very interested in what the veterinarian had and what she was doing until it involved poking them. We are thinking about breeding Maizy, which means that all three of the girls need to be tested […]

If you didn’t put that cryptic title together, I’ll help you.  We got a snowmobile.  Nothing fancy, just an old machine that works enough to haul us around. That husband of mine is always looking out for me.  Yes some could see this recent purchase as a toy for him, but honestly he did get this for me to be able to get around a bit on our property in the snow. With our newest […]

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Hi friends.  Today I built a fire and narrated it with my Snapchat account.  Those who received it, seemed to enjoy it so I thought I should share with y’all.  I don’t know if this technically falls in my category funny farm stuff or hold my Gatorade and watch this.  A little of both I guess. I spy a Hero puppy… I suppose you could use something else too if you wanted. One of my […]

Hello friends.  The last few days have included some more winter prep around our house.  We ordered a custom snow plow blade to be attached to our tractor to make snow removal easier.  We went to pick it up a couple days ago.  It was about a five hour drive round trip.  My body actually held up pretty well.  I was pretty tired at the end of it, but I did a lot better than I […]

Saturday included an hour and 45 minute drive up to look at (and possibly purchase) a 1964 Chevrolet tilt cab water truck with a 1500 gallon tank. I knew this was going to be an entertaining experience as soon as we arrived based on these two factors: The directions included, “As you come into town and cross the bridge, then follow the signs for the hospital.  Pass the hospital and drive until you see a dirt […]

Some Milestones Worth Mentioning I drove the truck the other day pulling the water tank trailer.  I towed it empty and I towed it back when the tanks were full.  I understand which way to turn the wheel to back the trailer a specific way, but I can’t wrap my mind around why it works like that.  I can’t imagine trying to back it into a specific space though. I also backed the tractor all the […]

The Sky is Falling… and it’s Beautiful

If you were following my blog in early July, you know how strongly I feel about borrowing other’s firework shows for free.  I never understood all of the complaints called into the police.  “They are the really big and amazing and probably cost $4000 and I didn’t pay a penny for it and I’m watching it for free and that makes me mad!” Well, that’s what I usually heard anyway. I believe in free shows. This […]

Chronic-Girl Crafts / Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

As I’ve said before, I like garage sale-ing and hitting up barn sales, etc.  A couple months ago, Tom was laying in bed and looking on Craigslist on his phone.  He mentioned that someone was getting rid of an old door for free and that it was most likely gone already.  Just for kicks, I sent an email.  She said it was available and we could pick it up.  The reason I’m telling you all […]

Life is a Goat Rope

Goat rope definition: A confusing and disorganized situation, often marked by human error. Goat rope definition from urban dictionary: When good intentions go bad, messily.  Example: Man, that’s the last time I help you move; what a goat rope. So ya, most of life really is just a goat rope if you think about it.  These last few days have been marked by me choosing to do things that I know I can’t really do without […]

Zombie Attack or Goats are Inside

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Funny Farm Stuff / Smile Makers / Uncategorized

These were the only logical solutions that Tom could come up with when he awoke to that screaming noise in the night. Well, rest assured.  No zombies were attacking and the house was goat free.  Just me, screaming in my sleep again.  Poor Tom. First off, this is going to be my new response when someone asks how I slept. I went to bed around 9 and I couldn’t get to sleep until about 1 […]
