Today could have been a crappy day on the farm. It qualified, enough things went wrong thanks to the storm front that blew through and other issues.
Instead, today was a great day on the farm.
Today, with the help of an amazing helpful volunteer, we were able to completely make over our milk room from winter (non-production) to spring (production, and how!).
We were able to teach two friends how to hand-milk, with the help of Velvet Rose and Yreka, aka Spot (they were naturals too!).
We were able to help welcome another beautiful doeling into this world, with Reba doing most of the work.
With the help of my amazing, devoted, marvelous husband, we were even able to fix the damage done to our storage shed by the wind.
AND, I got to see my sweet Maggie’s baby Lovey (who came by for a quick visit this afternoon)!!!
SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!! She looks just like Maggie (not coloring, but her build is identical).
I am such a lucky girl… today is one of the many reasons why I love this life.
Thank you for each of you that helped to make today special and memorable for the wonderful things it held… and especially Anna, who has a special gift of making me feel held together, even when I feel the world unraveling around me!
