Do you ever find that you have a weird habit that annoys you? So basically, you annoy yourself and stop…Without thinking, you’re back to doing said annoying habit in minutes.
I just realized today that when I run the tractor, I sing, well I belt out tunes in what could loosely be called a musical fashion. Not cool songs either. Today I couldn’t stop singing the ten (probably wrong) words I know to the old song Camptown Races. I might need help. And if I’m honest, it’s not just when I’m on the loud tractor.
Last night when sweeping out the goats barn, I kept singing parts of Bohemian Rhapsody.
My goats ignore me completely. They think it’s normal for these strange noises to come out of humans. My embarrassing moment came when I was signing my heart out and heard this voice, a small voice but obviously in the barn. Then I remembered we have a camera in there. My husband got on to ask me something about our old dog’s medication, but the only thing he ended up asking through the little camera speaker was, “Were you just singing Queen?”
I guess I don't sing well, if I start singing to the radio (oldies!) all the goats stop and look at me in a horrified fashion! I laugh and they
give me the "what is wrong with you" look! All those dairy does staring at you kind of makes you not want to sing!
I found an almost tame pigeon today. It has a band on each leg. According to the internet, it is a racing pigeon. I gave it bird seed, a dish of water and I'm hoping it will roost off the ground. But, it seems unable to fly, although it walks just a bit faster than me, it stays out of reach.
It has been ages since I have logged onto the forums. My computer died in flames ( literally , it had flames shoot out the back). I can't really use my phone to access things very well as the writing is too small and I can't type very well on the things.
Anywho, finally back. We managed to get a well on our property , which was a huge achievement. We had just sort of given up and decided to aim at rainwater harvesting but.. we finally got in touch with a driller and they had the well done within 2 days of calling us. We finalized the house plans ( we are building it ourselves from the ground up). Managed to get the power company out and blessedly they will be running a 1200ft right of way at no charge to us.
I had sold all but 2 of my goats a while back, well I brought most of them home recently. We are still on the half acre of land for the moment, but that should be very short term at this point. We will be on our own property ( 10acres) before Christmas if things continue to go as planned.
I just figured I would pop in and give an update and basically say , "Hey! I'm still kicking!" lol. I have a feeling our goats will love this place
