Where’s the Milk?

2 Mar

I really  need to make lotion, but I haven’t been milking.  I was actually kind of happy that Dolly was going to be one of the girls who had kids on Feb. 1.  I figured I could skim a bit from her to make my lotion.

That has not happened since she’s raising triplets.  Guess people will have to choose a different scent or be patient for a little longer.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Drying Up

28 Nov

My girls are drying up.  I’m really afraid I’m going to be out of milk before I’m done needing it to restock lotion for the rest of the holiday season.  I am getting about a cup a day from Cinnamon.

Stormy dried up.  So she’s no help.

I did see Litha letting Princess nurse the other day.  Suppose I could convince her to let me have some milk?

I’m guessing they would both veto that idea. Although I’m pretty sure I could use that milk more than Princess.

Falling Back

7 Nov

I am not a fan of falling back.  I like to see when I do chores.  It does mean that I’m now milking an hour earlier because I don’t change when I milk them, so I don’t interrupt their production.  I better not mess with them because I’m down to milking two girls and only getting 3/4 of a quart per day.

They are waiting when I come out to milk.  Cinnamon might also be telling me to hurry up.
