Slow day for me. I did some yard work this morning and stopped after a few hours as the pesky bugs were getting really pesky. I then took a two hour nap. I think that I'm a little depressed about the goats and sleeping is a way to avoid thinking about them.
I then got up and did the rest of the yard work. I had six wheel barrows of spoiled straw/hay to add to the compost pile. A really large tarp that needed to be hosed off and then spread out to dry. I also had a indoor rug/runner that I had to wash. Somehow I dragged in chicken poop on the rug and it was stinky.
With all the rain and heat, my potted flowers were down right dead and ugly so I put them away for winter. I also cleaned up the garage and made it neat and tidy. It won't last long but it feels good to look at a neat and tidy garage.
While I was doing all this work I had the goats out, and they were "helping" me by stepping on the tarp while I'm trying to move it. Getting in front of the wheel barrow and then standing on the compost pile and knocking it around so then I had to tidy that back up.
Because you know what is going to happen in a few days I no longer have Maggie on a diet. I have been giving them their treat several times a day. Being that they were out and about today they kept trying to get into the house to get to the carrot chips. Yep, that means I have goat berries on the back porch.
That's about it. I have school tomorrow so I need to go to bed so I can be bright eyed and bushy tailed first thing in the morning.
