We had farm visitors today! A soap customer and a nurse I used to work with came with their sweet kiddos to check out the baby goats and pick some soap. Of course, the baby kitties were a hit too. Even the chickens drew their attention.
I enjoy sharing the pleasure of having a little farm with others. I never would have thought I'd get to do that!
Today was day 1 of 4 off work. I worked three days in a row and that's enough to tucker a girl out!
Today was a rest and visit day. Tomorrow is a Goats Make Soap Co. business day and another disbudding day. We have a set of twin bucklings that need to be disbudded. I'm not looking forward to it at all, but it has to be done.
Goats Make Soap Co. may soon have soap on the shelf of a store in Madrid, Spain! We received a request from a merchant in Madrid who would like to stock our soaps in their little store. So exciting!
Ryland had band practice this evening and Connor baseball. Saturday and Sunday will be a tournament weekend for Connor in Gilbert. And then another 12 hour shift at the hospital for me. Mother's Day is coming, then Nurse's week, then another doe is due to kid, and then school is out for summer!
The days fill up and go by so fast. When I get a chance to stop and survey, a week or two has passed and before I know it it's a new season and I have two sons fast becoming men entering their 7th and 8th grade years.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Return, O Lord! How long? Have pity on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands! - Psalm 90:12-17
