Gone Camping

Kentucky is now the land of Grandmas. The First Reader’s Mom, and now my Mom! She’s arrived at the new Farm, and I’ll have a ton of photos when I get back. But it sounds like we may be camping in the barns and hotels while the old house gets some TLC and she can move into it. It’ll be an adventure! 

Here on the farm, we find babies under the very big rhubarb leaves!

    Oh No! I remember that line about “Adventure being somebody else in deep trouble”! 😆

    Hope, you and your family enjoy yourselves. 😀

      LOL! In this case, the ‘adventure’ is that we have no water in the house! There’s water at the pump house, and we have a hose running from the pump house to bring the water closer to where it’s actually needed — and I’m very thankful for that, because it’s much better than having to haul water from some other location. However, tomorrow I will be contacting several plumbers and hopefully one will be able to come out this week to completely re-plumb the entire house. Sigh.

  2. Camping in a hotel? Methinks that word does not mean what you think it means. 🙂

      LOL! This is true, but one hotel room for one mom, three of her children and their 17-y-o cousin (she’s actually Cedar’s first cousin, but the same age as Cedar’s kids) is sort of camping!

      1. There was a lot of bedsharing and cuddling. Johann slept on the floor! LOL

      2. Sort of, for some values of “camping.” If you got running water, cold AND hot, a phone, are sleeping under a roof, and the critters and bugs can’t get ya, you might not be livin’ in the lap of luxury, but you ain’t campin’. 🙂 Sharing a bed? Sounds like a slumber party. How old is Johann? I be like “B’rer Fox, don’ t’row me in dat Briar Patch.”

        1. He’s 12 1/2 and all the girls were sisters (or mom) so he’s definitely not happy to have to hang out with them for too long.

    I talked to my mom, and her goats are Nigerian dwarf goats, she believes. Two girls (one which is tiny) and three boys (two of which are fixed). The larger female she believes to be pregnant. I read that these goats are decent milk producers, despite their smaller size. If your mom is still interested, let me know. I heard that the two tiny ones are good grazers but the three larger ones prefer goat feed. They all enjoy bamboo leaves, however.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca! I’ll pass this on to mom. No internet at the farm yet.

    “we find babies under the very big rhubarb leaves”
    Must be a Kentucky thing. My gran’ma grew ’em that big in her garden in our yard in Chicago, but we never had any babies under ’em.

  5. Enjoy the ‘camping’ and good luck with the house!
