Goats in the yard, little toddlers in my bed..... time to start the day, oh my.

We are just finishing up the Bible reading and the singing practice.  The Ladies are working on their 4H project books, the front door opens and the 15 month old and the 4 year old are plunked into our bed.  Our Bubbles is not happy about mom leaving early but soon is cuddled into Poppies arms.  Cubbie is at the end of the bed all cuddled between the Ladies as they answer their questions.  Bubbles lays down to go to sleep and all is calm then Yogie looks out the window and all the goats are out in the yard.  She names all the ones she can see.  I asked her if she would go put them back in their pen.  She says "It is my project" and happily gets up to go put them up.  Imagine that, it bodes well for it being a good morning.  She is going out the door as Boy is coming in, so he goes along to help her get them in.  Boy and Yogie soon have them rounded up,  Boy guarded the gate as Yogie with a switch gets them into the pen.  Cleo didn't want to go in but Yogie won and soon they are all back in there pen.  Gets the blood pumping first thing, makes for a good day.  Bubbles is soon off to napping land.  She and Cubbie both get to go to Pre-School Group today, that will be nice as she usually doesn't get to go, but as she is getting older she is more able to participate. 

I joined a new group yesterday, so excited, it is a group of reusers, right up my alley.  I am excited, several years ago I looked into buying Tattler jar lids but though I read about them in Mother Earth and on line I never actually got any.  This group are working on purchasing a wholesale amount so by co-oping together we can all get them for a great price.  Tattler jar lids were invented in the 70's had a few years of popularity and then sort of faded away.  Some people continued to use them, but few, in the last few years there has been a resurgence of favor in the use of them.  They are a reusable jar lid.  The have a rubber gasket more like the rings of old.  The exciting part is that they are safely,  reusable.  the gasket is good for 20 or more times.  I was in a chat on this subject yesterday and was surprised to hear that some of the ladies had actually used metal flats more than once in their own home canning but never to use as gifts, I am not that brave.  I am excited to be in on actually getting the Tattlers as they are much safer and made to be used over and over.  Can't wait. 

More work on the kitchen to come, have to get some more boards to do the pantry.  Tucky gave me info that  Human Resources in Zootown is having a sale on slabs and boards, we will have to check it out.  We will need a slab for the mantle by the stove.  We have antique columns from an old mantle that we need to get set up and are planning on working on that so it will be a good opportunity to maybe get one.   It will be nice to get most of what we want to do done all at once, but then we will probably never actually be done, life goes one, needs change and change is inevitable.  I hope that today is the day that the Lord's message calls to your soul and today is the day of your salvation, to those already saved take glory in this day God gave it to us..... tomorrow.

  3. Wow, that is amazing! I have four kids, so I think a two gallon
    bag would make enough for one meal for the 6 of us, and this appears so ideal
    for recovering from vacation, surgery, baby-birthing, the initial week of
    school, etc. Just genius, thanks so considerably.
