Hello everyone! Hope all is well with you and yours. We have been getting rain over the past week. It helps to cool things off until the sun beams down again. I enjoyed standing out in the rain one day and grounding. It felt so good. It was nice and cool.
My parents and grandparents took 2 loads of goats to the auction Saturday. I do not like selling our animals that way. I would rather know they went to a good home. There you don’t have a clue. My parents sold our 3 little bucks and 1 doe. My grandparents sold 2 little bucks and 2 grown does. So our herd is down to 8 goats. We have 6 does and 2 bucks. One of our bucks is only 4 or 5 months old. He’s waiting in the wings to replace our grown buck next year. We plan to breed all 6 does when breeding season begins, which should be pretty soon.
The garden has slowed down. We still have peas yet to make if they don’t get too much rain. Mom is still getting cucumbers from her kitchen garden. She hopes to get the fall plants in the ground soon.
We have some trips coming up as the end of the year approaches. We will be going to Ethridge, TN to Amish country to ride and see what they may have to sell. We will also be going to Waco, TX to the Homestead Fair in November. That is the trip I look forward to. Then in December, Mom and I will go with my grandparents on our annual Gatlinburg, TN trip. Those are our plans if the Lord is willing. Next year we plan to travel more than we have this year. My dad is going to cut back on his work schedule to free us up more. We have only been on 2 trips this year so far. Dad only went on 1 of those. So we’re itching to go.
