It’s workshop season, and Glory Bee and I are in full milking swing. This makes everybody happy except Moon Pie and Dumplin, who do not like to be separated from MOMMY. Sometimes there’s a lot of bellowing. And crying. And whining. And pitiful cow eyes. But everyone is surviving. I load up my little cart and take it to the barn in the mornings.
Glory Bee waits for me at the gate, eager for her big breakfast.
I didn’t start milking her right away after she had Moon Pie. I let her give it all to the baby for awhile. I like to get them started out on all that good cream.
It was good while it lasted, wasn’t it, Moon Pie?
I don’t think she’s really speaking to me right now. But wow, she is a pretty calf. I love her. Even if she doesn’t love me back. Maternity leave is over, and mommy is back to work!
But it just makes the reunions all the sweeter…..!
Between mowing and milking and getting ready for the next go-round of workshops, this is pretty much how I feel by noon every day.
I don’t know what Casper’s problem is, because I can assure you he didn’t do anything!
