Had a great few days when my mums' cousin, James, and his wife, Susan, came to visit. He fixed some niggley little things in my kitchen, and Susan made some old fashioned South African puddings : lemon, coconut and custard fridge tart, trifle, and jelly :). We went mushroom hunting, Susan did great, James didn't find any, went up to the cheese factory after breakfast in Belding and visited an Amish 2nd hand store where Susan found a couple of things she bought at great prices. Stopped at Jackies' lake house where Gary showed us around and then had icecream on the way back home.
We chatted and visited, and had a great time.
No calves yet, hopefully soon as Dolly weaned me, so no milking here at present. Means Herbie and I could get away for a night, maybe Fathers' Day weekend seeing as his girls won't be visiting.
I can't believe it. This week is our 7th wedding anniversary ! And we still like each other :). Went to John and Angies' sons' wedding yesterday, well I was early enough for the actual ceremony and Herbie got there for the reception. But he brought me a coat as I was freezing. We danced the couples' dance, and neither of us could remember "our" song :). Dobie Grays' Drift Away :). We're old fogies. I love my Herbie, even those times I can just punch him in the face :). Inside joke :).
The DNR told me to put the fawn back out in the woods as we're in a CWD (chronic wasting disease) area and there isn't a wildlife rehabilitation facility in Ionia County and no neighbouring Counties are allowed to take a fawn from here, even those in one of the other 4 CWD Counties. I asked Herbie if we could become a rehabilitation facility, and he asked if I'd get paid to do it. Don't know, will have to investigate.
It snowed here this morning ! Huge flakes that didn't stick, and this afternoon we went mushroom humting again, I found a bag full, Herbie never found any.
The hay field is ready for cutting, watching the weather to get 5 hot and sunny days. Would love to round bale our first cutting for the cows next Winter, maybe I can get Mike to come do it. The goose is still sitting on eggs in the one window well. There are more eggs than she can keep warm, so hopefully a few actually hatch. Think I'll shoo her tomorrow to check if there are any hatchlings yet. Hope to put about 8 dozen chicken eggs into the incubator tomorrow. Still haven't found if the guineas are laying anywhere, but found a dead guinea in the new orchard 2 days ago, missing the head so it seems the mink is back :(.
Bye for now.
