I am still going to uphold that and after I am done saying what is wrong in this post, I will say something good to off set the bad.
Okay, here we go.
This has been one of those tough weeks where you almost want to throw your hands up and call uncle. Each thing that went wrong was not enough to push me over the edge, but added all together it makes a good run for it.
I had two good friends decide they were not going to blog anymore this week. I fully understand and thought about it myself on many occasions but I seem to keep coming back. I will will miss reading their blogs and hope they find what they are looking for and get the time to do some of the things they have been wanting to do.
The well broke again and I cannot find a well company willing to come out and fix it. I Jerry rigged the thing to at least work for a while but I know it will not last. Maybe with all this rain the well companies will get hungry enough to do the work I need.
Next, Wee's prize winning Red Satin Buck had to be put down. Something got in the Rabbit barn the other night and tried to pull it through the cage and broke it's little back. I had to put him out of his misery. It was sad to loose the money the buck cost and would have made us but it was even sadder to loose a loved animal that way.
I got the yard mowed Sunday and when finished decided to go grocery shopping. I forgot and left the gate to the gardens open and upon my return, all the chickens decided it was a buffet. All the lettuce, beans, carrots, kale, cabbage and a few other things were eaten to the nub. With the heat coming on I don't have the time to grow those veggies back. Total loss.
That's the negative stuff, now on to the positive so I can balance this out and keep my word to myself.
I will always keep the friendship I gained with the ex-bloggers. I am very lucky I found them. They are family now.
I really don't have anything to say good about the well problem but I am sure it will work it's self out, maybe.
With the rabbit episode happening, now I have the motive to thin the stray cat population down.
The garden thing was really bad, but with the spring like temps I think I will go ahead and get my tomatoes and peppers in the ground being now I have room.
Nothing good about the nanny goat dying, it was all my fault. I posted a Craig's list add for the two boys and I am sitting here waiting on the people who are buying them. I was able to sell them quick before too much money was lost. There they are, BRB
The nice people just left and took the two boy goats with them. It turns out they are like minded and I give them a tour of the Mini Farm. It is always nice to meet other preppers/homesteaders because we have a lot in common and it makes for great conversation.
So see there, something good did come from it, new friends.
