I am a wife, mother & farmer. I love to spin the wool & mohair from our sheep & goats. Gathering eggs from the free range chickens & ducks is also quite enjoyable. We've got an interesting assortment of creatures, often because of our big hearts that have led us to open our home to so many animals that others might see little value in. Each day is filled, we cannot always say exactly what we've accomplished but we sleep well.
We have had three days in a row with hard rains. I found this little toadstool popped out on the side of an older round bale of hay today. Although the goats were not pleased with the torrential rains we desperately need as much as we can get to offset our drought. Our next few days are supposed to be clear but we are praying for regular fall rains to make up our rain deficit.
