New babies

New babies today!  A set of twins to a yearling nanny, they were still wet when I found them.  Good mamma, she tended them well.  If the market stays as weak as it is right now into peak selling time, I might end up with a few young billys in the freezer and a whole bunch of new milking girls!  This virus thing is not good.  Not good at all.  Hardly anyone in this rural area is paying attention to the stay at home order thing.  Thankfully, there are only 3 confirmed cases within 50 miles of here.  My off farm place of employment has shut down for at least 2 weeks, I had to sign up for unemployment today.  I haven't had to do that since the 80's.  Weird times we're living in, that's for sure!

Today was day 3 of shutdown and I spent it  cooking, again.  Set the young'uns on digging up the tore up water line for the barn and piling up the debris from the one side of the old barn that fell in already.  We get that cleaned up and I can get to ripping the other side off and pushing the middle over.  Gotta get it all gone so I can get to prepping the spot for the twin tiny house cabins.  A little at a time and it all comes together.

Started working on a new quilt project.  I've also got some fragrance oils brewing and need to process some aloe fronds.  Plenty to keep me busy!
