A Busy Short Week

12 Sep

I swear this might have only been a four day week with the holiday, but it has been crazy busy.  It started with the roof of my house finally getting shingled this week.

Well, it’s in progress.

Wednesday, as soon as I got home from work, I scooped up Tiger and took him to the vet.  He was fixed the next morning, and my mom picked him up and brought him home Friday morning.  I don’t think it slowed him down at all.

Rocky appreciated a break from the kitten constantly bouncing on him.  Poor boy.


As always, I have also been out to pasture counting kids.

I’m still milking.   Onyx is still doing well with training, but she isn’t giving me much.  Most of my girls are starting to slow down their production. I’m down to three quarts a day from the five I had been getting.


I weaned Pretzel, but I’m not sure that made things easier because she still follows me and sucks on my fingers and clothes and things she should have a bottle.

Pretzel running to see if I have a bottle.

I also spent a stupid amount of time trying to figure out how I messed up the settings on my big girl camera because it wasn’t focusing properly.  Hours later, I finally came to the conclusion that it wasn’t me and the camera is in the process of dying. This poor baby has had a lot of hard use in rather dirty conditions. Sadly, I am not sure when I’ll be able to replace it because they don’t make the same camera anymore, and it’s hard to get electronics (at least the ones I’ve looked at) because of the pandemic.  Hopefully, my dear Nikon can hang in there for a while yet.

It’s been an exhausting week, and the weekend has been even more busy.  It might take me all of next week’s posts just to get through the weekend activities.

    I’m happy for you that your roof is getting re-done! That’ll be a relief for you.
    We’ve found in the past, that that “little” surgery doesn’t usually cause our little furbabies too much trouble. Tiger looks good.
    I’m sorry about your camera. How old is it? I have an older Nikon that is all metal, I can’t use it anymore, because I can’t see well enough to focus it. Yours is probably newer and automatic, right?

      Mine is 8 1/2 years old, but it’s had a lot of hard use in dirty conditions (barns, fields, etc.). It does auto focus, but it keeps switching settings on me and won’t let me always choose what I want. It will be okay…for now. It has to live through next weekend. Then we’ll see. It might be just crappy cell phone pictures after that.

    It is good to get the roof done before winter. Cute kitties and I love the goats. Pretzel is adorable. Sorry about the camera, it is good to have a spare one ready to go. Take care, have a happy new week!
