It is hot and muggy. I am not really enjoying the fast transition from cold, wet spring to hot, muggy summer. I am quite hoping that this warm up weakens and we return to cooler for a few days at least.
Cleaning up on the home front continues to go slowly. How is it that you can collect up stuff so much easier than you can divest yourself of it? It is a continuing battle to reduce, reduce, reduce. One that I am often not really winning.
The stuff it is making me crazy. For my sanity I have literally said to my husband. That is why we must go through the painful process of reducing….for my sanity.
It isn’t that I have had nothing to say. It is the fact that what I had to say wasn’t particularly interesting the monotony of life has held me in its clutches for months. First I became full of holiday madness. After that it was tax season madness and now I’m onto spring/summer madness. Life kept turning and I kept saying I’ll get to my blog (journal) soon. Quite apparently I didn’t get there at all.
Yet I’m maintaining this site so I’m dusting off my sad little corner and going to put some thoughts here. Randomly, of course, because let’s be realistic.
So I’ve learned to milk a goat. I didn’t see that one coming when I decided to put on my farm girl hat. Turns out I like being a dairy maid except for the schedule part. That is pinching a bit. I wasn’t quite set up to be at home at exact times this spring/summer. So I’m often hurriedly getting to or from in order to keep my animal more comfortable. I’ll have to have a better plan for next year when we’ll have possibly six milking Does. Yes that is crazy. Yes I have no idea what I’m to do with all that milk. Yes I thankfully like cheese. Honestly I am still wrapping my head around two boys with dairy goat projects and the subsequent number of milking goats that gives us.
But it also gives us a great excuse to wander around saying “CHEEEESE Gromit! CHEEEEESE!”
I’m not sure what I’m thankful for today. I know somewhere in this mess of a day I have something to be thankful for somewhere.
But it was a long day. With lots of getting afters and talking. I have a headache and my throat hurts from all of the noise I was making today.
Between the puppy and the boys and the rest of life I am a little wiped out.
So I guess I’ll just leave it at I am thankful for knowing I should be thankful.
