Thrasher

23 May

I nearly scared a thrasher half to death when I was walking in pasture the other night.  I have to admit, she kind of startled me too.  She flew up into the tree and stayed there.  Then I saw her nest.  I did not realize they were ground nesters.  I guess I’ll avoid that area for a little while, so I don’t disturb her again.

I have the Farmer’s Market tonight.  I’m not sure how busy it will be since it’s a holiday weekend.  Hopefully, there will be a lot of people!  With all the livestock in my kitchen and the sick critters, I haven’t had time to stock up on my soaps.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to do that soon.

I admit defeat.  I’m not superwoman.  I haven’t mowed my yard yet this year.  Inside the fence, where there have been yard goats for most of the last month, it’s not actually too bad.  The area outside the fence looks like it should be baled into hay.  I gave in and called someone to come do it for me.

Tomorrow I will be doing a wedding shoot.  It’s at a pond, so it should be a lot of fun.

After that, the rest of the weekend is devoted to cleaning out the greenhouse for birthing.  I’m also going to do the chicken coop, so it’s clean for the new chicks to be released from their pens.

Eight days left with students and one teacher work day before I start my summer break.  Unfortunately we had enough snow days that I have three goats due to kid before then.
