Piggies to move this morning. Yard work, I do so love the fall.

We finished the pig pen retouch. We picked up two of the three goat babies that we were to get from Herbalist's house.  One hid under the feeder and we couldn't get him out but will pick him up next time. The Professor broke his finger several weeks ago and it is not healing well so he has been encouraged to reduce his herd a little more.  We will be making a deal on two more doelings, a little older than Dolly and the withers we picked up.  They are more the age of the ones the cougar killed so it will be good way to replace some of the ones we lost, they are diary so not exactly the Boars we lost but a good deal anyway.  We are going to catch piggies this morning and move them across the goat pen to the piglet pen.  The kids will get to help so they should have fun, I think they will have fun helping carry them, piglet are very strong so they may not be able to carry them, we'll see.

Worked on the yard yesterday, have some burning to do today, and winterizing.  The firewood is nearly all chopped still have some to go get but that is the fun part of fall.  Hunting season started yesterday so we have to be careful of the hunters out there.  The sawing usually keeps them away but it is still something to consider when going. We can't wait because it will snow in the mountains soon and hamper getting it to far up in the woods. All in all the fall is going wonderful in the privacy of our home, the outside stuff is a bit hard right now, but with good friends and family we are getting on.

I think the hardest part of this is trying to teach my children that strangers aren't the only danger to them.  They asked why adults are allowed to lie about them and I have no answers to that.  How is it that you can teach your child it has to be honest, do the right thing and tell the truth, expect that of them; then an adult comes along lies to them, about them and stalks them, they don't understand why, I guess neither do I. What is the world coming to that the strangers you have to teach them about is an acquaintance of theirs and is as much a danger to them as the strangers they don't know.  Hard times to be a child, in this day and age, I knew that, but why is it that harmful people like this keep moving into our little Montana towns I do wish they had stayed where they come from and leave our towns at peace.  I do so like the normal people that move in but more and more our small town is becoming a place for the stranger and criminal elements, so sad...... tomorrow.


  1. God disiplines us with aflictions, he loves us unconditionally and answers are prayers that are his will. These are all promises of God. I am so glad to know that God is always faithful and keeps all his promises. He has never lied to us, he loves us and is commited to us for all eternity. We can always stand on his promises. I am always so uplifted to know that God will take care of me and mine. He always takes care of our true needs. I hope you all have a day of God's blessings... I know I will.

  2. People are almost always an end to their means.Karma, Karma, Karma

  3. He/she prayed-- it was wasn't my religion
    He/she ate-- it wasn't what I ate
    He/she spoke-- it wasn't my language
    He/she dressed-- it wasn't what I wore
    He/she took my hand-- it wasn't exactly like my hand
    But when he/she laughed, it was how I laughed, & when he/she cried, it was how I cried.

    Hate, prejudice, & slander are a large part of your articles.

    Hate for your mother
    Hate for your daughter: "Goofy"
    Hate for your sister: "Drama Queen"
    Hate for your neighbors: "DC & Beard"

    Exposing family tales of sexual abuse (if it even happened) to your siblings.

    Cyber bully-ing by to try to drive your neighbors from the community.

    Christ was a man of loving tolerance?
    Why mingle his name with your judgments-- while you are trying to merely sell your products.

    "1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
    2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
    3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
    5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
    6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
    7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
    8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
    9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
    11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
    12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
    13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

    1 Corinthians 13 tells what the BIBLE says you can do in regard to having healthy relationships with others in your community and family.

    I sure hope & pray that you give it a try.
