A Few Things Getting Done...

Somewhat productive day:

Found an add for some goslings on craigslist for $5 each so I had to jump on them and go get them today. Also stopped by and saw my grandmother at her assisted living home and Finn entertained all the old folks with his "hug your neck" routine where he acts like he is going to give you a hug and then yanks your ears.

The baby geese are cozied up next to the chicks in a separate box. We also finished the fence around the garden; all we have to finish now is putting the charger up and ground rod in (and weed-eating of course). That fence is sure going to shock the goats and chickens and puppies when they decide to gallivant in my garden again.

I am getting a little frazzled too though. Working in the yard with a 2.5 year old that thinks he knows best can be trying. I can't count the number of times in a day I say the following things: no, don't do that, stop it, quit it, please don't do that, get off of that, don't put that in your mouth, stop playing in that, don't drink that, be nice to the dogs, stop climbing on that, get over here, and the list goes on and on....

I did let him run around in the yard without a diaper on this evening and he thought it was hilarious, but it made me have to say a few new phrases: don't pee on the dogs, stop trying to teabag the puppies, be careful around that ant bed, stop trying to pee on the goats, etc.

  1. Ha! "be careful around that ant bed... don't pee on the dogs..." - that's dang hilarious, man. :)

    I feel incredibly spoiled by our mellow-tempered (usually) daughter after my brother's boys were here for a few days. My, oh my...

    Electric fence is one of greatest inventions ever! I had one deer hop over when it was grounded out last fall, but we like venison jerky so it wasn't a problem. Even chickens will learn to respect the wire after adequate shocking.



Thanks for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate the input and will do my best to respond quickly if need be. Thanks again for reading!
