Spring please.

 Imagine my surprise Saturday morning to wake up to a coating of snow. Yuk.  It was the day I was going to move the mamas and babies in with Fergundus and Hansel. It was the day I was going to move my garden frames and fill them with a very nice concoction of llama, goat, chicken and pony poop.  It was the day I was going to get so much done.

Yuk. But I knew that with the high school musical happening and a church dinner which is a all-day affair that I didn't want to miss......I would only have a few hours to get any of this stuff done.  So I did.  I moved Bella, Cookie Dough, Cinderella, and Leslie into the goat yard.  I moved the garden frames up to my old garden area, put down the weed fabric, and put in a layer of poop cocktail.  I really have to get new tires for my wheelbarrow.  It is really tiring to drag a wheelbarrow full of manure and straw up a hill on flat-as-pancake tires.

It turned out to be a really great
weekend!  The goats all got along.  I left the door to the goathouse open a bit in case the boys got a little crazy and it worked out well.  I've even quit going out two and three times a night to check on everyone.  The boxes are full of compost but I'll have to wait a few days to put in the soil so that I can plant my peas.  But that's ok.  It won't be the first year that I've been late planting peas.  I am so looking forward to being able to check my asparagus.  Of course, I have to wait until the snow melts.

But tomorrow is the first day of spring.  It will be 70 degrees and sunny, I'm sure.

I hope you do have 70 degree weather, but it doesn't sound like we are really going to have a very good first day of Spring. School musicals are so enjoyable. I have a niece, who's son plays in the orchestra at the school play. They did Throughly Modern Millie. He can play several instruments and he made the state band. I know you enjoyed the show. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Lost things

I heard at church of the passing of an old friend of mine.  I was shocked and ashamed. Shocked because I never thought of this person as old...
