Great Day

Today was just one of those magical days when everything feels just right. You know, you wake up on the right side of the bed, coffee tastes amazing. The weather is picture perfect, the birds sing, and you just know.
It is going to be a great day.
I had more energy that a bunny on viagra.
 I did 4 loads of wash, milked the goat, shaved her udder, trimmed her hooves. I cleaned all the windows in the house ( inside only). I vacuumed the entire house, cleaned the kitchen. I took all three kids to swimming. We made more goat milk ice cream. I sat in the sun. We had a BBQ.
We watched many tree's fall.
It was loud and fun.
There were some dead trees and some not dead that needed to be removed to make way for our garden plot and orchard. So we spent the day outside watching the big fellas fall. Kids were excited, all had a job. Mine was making sure no one got squished.
No one one got squished.
Tomorrow we have to chop them all up into logs, and stack them for next years fire wood. I think we will have plenty. There are so many tree's on the creek that need to come down. There is a ton up at the barn we have to remove to make a pasture.
Things are coming along. This place is going to be something. It will just take about 10 years to be at full potential. But when it culminates it is going to be a slice of bliss.
My bliss.-K
p.s. we got the goat!
