Look at that! Beulah Petunia has new quarters in the works.
Way back (like, last week) when we thought BP wasn’t going to have her baby until mid-October or early November, we started planning and preparing her a place closer to the house, with all intentions of having her moved up here before the Blessed Event. Then she took us by surprise.
BP needs to be near the house for several reasons, not the least of which is that this winter, there’s no way, no how that I will be able to milk her down there–and get the milk back to the house–when the driveway is under a foot of snow. I also need to keep a closer eye on the baby, and I just, well, I JUST NEED MY COW HERE. So work has been going on double-time this weekend to finish the preparations.
Look how close BP’s new milk stand (and fenced area) is to the house.
It’s just past the chicken house.
Imagine! BP and Glory Bee right here! I can walk right out and pet that baby any time I want. And bring the milk up to the house in a few steps. And pet that baby any time.
And pet that baby any time.
AND PET THAT BABY ANY TIME.
I can’t wait!
