    Need several cups today. I’m off a few days and don’t have that added stress and I’m still not sleeping well.

    Drinking my coffee, watching the deep rosy glow of the sun shining through the trees.

    Pain is manageable with oxycodone and tylenol. Nerve block wore off about 2am. But I was already taking my pain meds in anticipation of it wearing off. Thanks for the positive comments!

    Thanks for checking in, was wondering about you! The pain and misery will go away as you heal up and you will be so glad that you had this surgery.

    Well between work and chores, lucky to log on :D Then there's the shower & sleep part..:rolleyes: @Wehner Homestead you know that our sleep patterns won't change for the few days off :) but, you can try! I have found melatonin helps me, if I think of taking it about an hr before bed. PLUS you have those lovely young'uns to help you stay awake! When you get to MY age & stage, you'll find naps happen easily :lol:

    I've had to milk the doe with new twins since she is an "over achiever" in the milk production. So I was able to replenish the colostrum and first couple days of "rich" milk for the freezer. While I have not had to use any, you never know. Plus, I have had occasion to share the wealth for some who needed it. We have a wildlife certified rescue near and on occasion she needs it for a fawn. Nice to have it.

    Have 4 in milk now and 4 more due. :eek: Since I have the large gals (Saanen & Saanen X Nubian) they are totally on board with production! Two of this years are FF with great udders and full. I am thrilled with one who is the daughter of "the worst udder" on the farm (but huge producer!) and she has a great one! :clap Looking forward to keeping her in milk a while. She just had twins 3 days ago...doelings!!!! :D They are 3/4 Saanen. Lot of white kids here. So far 6 bucks 3 does. Another doe due "soon" :idunno At least large twins, possible trips -- she's big! Then 2 or 3 more in another month. MILK abounds!! :lol: Say cheese, cream, butter....:D I want SO badly to just stay home...next yr that is my goal.

    Seems quiet on the board...what are you all doing out there?

    I'm up, on 2nd cup of coffee. I'm setting out tomatoes today. It is still cold at night, but what the heck. I think we are done with frost for the spring. It is in the 50's at night, but has been warm and sunny during the day, today it is supposed to reach 80 degrees.

    @Mini Horses you have a lot of milk! Make lots of cheese, freeze some of that cream for your coffee.
