Meet the Girls!

Our little farm got a couple new additions today! We've had Cocoa, our milk goat for a while and love being able to have fresh milk. She and Hunter are big buddies too, he takes her out in the yard and she plays with him like she is a dog or something. It is soooooo cute! Anyway, here are the new additions that made their way on our farm this evening... They are Lamancha goats just like Cocoa. They have great tasting milk. Haven't named them yet, but Hunter is thinking of names for them. I love how excited he gets over getting new farm animals.Here is Cocoa, making sure that they know she is "the boss". The lighter goat that we got is her full sister and the darker one is some kin to her too. I'll get better photos of them all tomorrow when it is daylight.
Here is Festus way up in a tree. Not sure why but he was up there when we got back home.
Richard and I have been working our butts off in the house the past few days. This is what we finished today. This is Andrew's room. We got all the sheetrock up on the ceiling and walls and it is ready for the mud and sanding. Hopefully I will start taping the seams next week and Richard will go behind me mudding and sanding. This room is fairly big, it measures 16x20. The ceiling is angled with the roof. On the short end the ceiling is 7ft and the tall wall behind the headboard is a 12ft wall. I really got excited about getting this much of it done today so we had Andrew's bed stored out there (as you can see from all the dust on it) that I just had to set the bed frame up to see how it would look in this room.
We also got a few other things done out there too, but they were just small things. He did finally get my frame put back together for me. I think I will quilt a baby quilt of mine on it first just to make sure that nothing is out of whack on it from moving it. I have 2 customer quilt that I need to get done. If everything works out as I plan, I will start on those by the middle of the week.
I did get some hand sewing done today on a customer binding. I should have that ready to be delivered by Monday. I love working on binding, I find it really relaxing.
And now I will leave you with a photo of Donkey! He is sleeping with his big butt stuck in a lamp shade. This is Andrew's lamp, I'm sure he will be pleased to know that Donkey got his "butt crud" on it! LOL!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
