It's Sunday funday! We've somehow made it to the halfway point in this blogging challenge and I've managed to post everyday! This morning, I got some work done in the soap shop this morning, cranking out a few orders to ship out tomorrow. I brought in my younger goats administered their dewormer and gave them some feed. I had moved our other goats into a different pasture to keep them separated. I didn't know it at the time, but a big storm was brewing. Before I had a chance to move everyone back to their respective pastures, the bottom fell out of the sky. Lightning was striking all over, and a very unhappy herd of goats were stuck in a pasture that doesn't have a shelter. Dairy goats are pretty finicky when it comes to rain. They do not like for their heads to get wet. There is a herd of goats in the pasture who are probably pretty mad with me right now.
We are all being a bit more lazy than normal this afternoon. We are all hanging out while the rain continues to fall watching a movie. In just a little while, my husband will be packing up to go offshore for a couple of days. We will be holding down the fort while he's gone, just like we always do.
It's hard to believe that in another week, we will be in a new month. This year seems to be passing so quickly. Before I know it, my youngest will be turning 3 and my oldest will be 10. I know the month of October will fly by in an instant. With shows every weekend, most of them being multi-day shows, I will only be home a couple of days each week in October. Mostly to restock what we will need for the next show and do some laundry. It will be tough being away from home so much, but it's a sacrifice I will be making to help grow our business. I would love nothing more than my husband to be able to get out of the oil field and be able to sustain our family with our bath & body business. We'd love to grow the farm and get more animals, and opening a storefront is one of our ultimate goals.
I will be working on perfecting some new recipes before our shows start in October, and we hope that those of you who have been to our booth in the past will enjoy our new set up with our double booth spaces for all of our upcoming shows!
