hi.. Im so bored :wallbang: anyone else doing nothing this summer?
I tell you what, I'll give you half my schedule to keep you busy. ;-)

We homeschool year round, so I have 2 teens you can plan for and teach. We have 4-H meetings every week. Your job is to make sure everyone has all their paperwork done. You can help me pack for my trip to see my oldest daughter at the end of the this week and then you can take care of the house and our goats while we're gone. While you're at it, you can help me build the new pallet shed and expand the goat pen and you can design a really awesome eye-popping ad that will sell our wether and one of our less productive does.

You can help me write recipes (for money!) for a blog I recently found and you can help us clip all our goats for the shows in August and September.

You can help me cook up all the milk we don't drink and help me figure out how to make yogurt and soap. You can look after my elderly mother and in-laws and dog sit for my neighbor. You can cook meals for my sick friends and watch Batman (1960's version) with our family.

Let's see...You can help us with a film project (a Western in our backyard!) and crack the whip to keep me writing on my blog.

You can mow the lawn.

You can also pick the cilantro because I despise it and have no idea why I planted it.

You can help me (in a couple of months) make crabapple jam and then clean up all the dead fall crabapples in the yard. You can help me make salsa (Make sure you wear gloves while handling those hot peppers!)

And, hey, if you're bored you can make some sort of fence for my garden so the goats will stop stealing bites of garlic and pepper plants!

Oh, and you can also join us for homemade goatmilk ice cream and cheese and homemade bread.

And.... :ponder: I'm sure I can come up with more as soon as I get the apple pies outta the oven and clean up that mess on the floor and look up some more information on stamping out poison ivy. :crazy:

Here, Have a cup of coffee to help you cope. :coffee2: ) I'm going to have SEVERAL!:coffee:

And I just lost Ellie so that cut me back another one... I'm selling two of my bucks, and then buying one, and I then that's it for the year! I'll keep some kids come spring and be back up to where I was lol!
