Stuck insede

I would like to say that I have been busy as a bee the last 2 weeks but that would be a lie. I have been quite the opposite. I have been sitting on the couch most of the time. And just like the little goat in the picture above I felt stuck inside. We have been getting one snowstorm after another and I am starting to feel like winter will never end. I know that God is in control and we have to go through each season but I have to admit I am getting a little impatient. Another reason I have been stuck inside is because I had surgery on my right hand for carpal tunnel. This was my first surgery ever and I did not realize how tired I would be and how hard it would be to do everything one handed, especially with my left hand. Thankfully I got my brace removed yesterday and I have a little more freedom with my hand. In 2 weeks I will be getting my left hand operated on but I am thankful to God that I have 2 weeks of being able to do a little bit more, like taking a shower without having to cover my lower arm with plastic and duct tape in order to keep it dry. I still cannot lift anything with that hand but it is nice that it is not in that heavy brace.

The baby goats are doing wonderful. We lost one so we are down to 10 now and they are all healthy and happy. It was very hard on me losing the one, I love them so much and he was such a sweetheart but sometimes that is life on a farm and we have to accept it even though it was heartbreaking. The little one in the lower picture my daughter has become very attached to and she named her Turtle. My daughter can go out in the pen and call her by name, it is really cute. All of the babies will be for sale in a few weeks but we will enjoy them and spoil them while they are here.

And last of all but definitely not least my husband bought me this Excalibur dehydrator for my Christmas/birthday present. I was so excited!! I made banana chips in it and I am looking forward to being able to use it alot more after I have 2 good hands.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Blessings and hugs to all!!

  1. The baby goats are adorable! One of my son's goats just had 2 yesterday. I may have dehydrator envy. The excaliburs are fantastic, but just out of our budget. Thanks for sharing with us at The HomeAcre Hop!
