First, I want to answer a couple questions I realized I missed in the comments.
Have you found out yet if you’re going to be able to get your goats? Yes! We are so happy to report that we are going to get our babies! We are getting two doelings (girls) and one wether (boy, neutered). As a wether, we can keep this baby in with our girls, and next year when we’re able to prepare a second goat enclosure on the farm for a buck (further away from the house), the wether will move in with our buck as his companion. I can hardly wait till we can bring our three babies home to frolic on our farm and meet Coco! We’re waiting for them to be weaned (and for us to finish their enclosure!). Hopefully, we’ll be bringing them home in about a month.
Are you going to name your farm? Yes, we do want to name our farm, but we’ve been having a hard time figuring out what. (Let me know if you have any suggestions!)
If I missed any other questions recently, or if you have a new one, let me know!
And now, for the “backwards comment giveaway” aka Commenter Appreciation Giveaway–every so often, I’ll be randomly poking my finger at the calendar to select a day (since the last giveaway), then inputting the number of comments on that day’s post in Random.org’s Integer Generator to choose the recipient of a $50 Amazon gift certificate. And so I poked my finger, eyes closed, at the calendar and came up with June 4th, which I must say was quite a whiny post. There were 67 comments (as of this writing) on that post, and when I inputted that range online, I came up with:

“The hurrier I go the behinder I get” I don’t know who said that but I repeat it all the time.
That picture is Georgous! I’d be too busy looking at the scenery to do any work. LOL
I think you should take a time out. Sit on the porch swing or one of those rockers with a big glass of iced tea and a good book. Take a little break and breathe. You will feel much better and get a lot more done. Also, delegate. I bet those kids could manage to do some laundry, dusting, and chicken feeding. HaHa That is easy for me to say but never worked very well in real life. Getting my kids to do anything was usually took longer than doing it myself.
Tina L, email me! (There is a Contact Me link at the top of the sidebar.)
I’ll be doing this again. All you have to do is comment on daily posts to be in the drawing. Thank you for being here and for keeping me company!
