Guessing Game

So here
I am again…
Can’t seem to
Kick this thing.

Guess how my week has been.

Every time I think I’m not sick anymore, I am proven wrong…

Ah well, at least I’m starting to have days with energy even while I’m sick. This is still good news for me!

The Grand Finale – Thankful Thursday

I’m grateful for the Cassini Spacecraft and all of the awesomeness it has discovered about Saturn since it’s mission not only began, but was also extended to this year. It has begun its final descent into the atmosphere of Saturn where it will be crushed.

I salute you, Cassini and I appreciate all of your hard work.

(And yes, I geeked out on everything I could find about Cassini before I had to give up the laptop to my niece for homework.)

Check out the original Thankful Thursday.

It Still Exists

Don’t you dare give up
Remember where you’re from
Even the children of maids and janitors
All can achieve their goals
My life now is vastly different


I’ve read and heard that it is impossible in our day and age to climb out of poverty and up into first the lower class and then the middle class, but we are proof that it isn’t impossible.

It takes more than just luck, but more than just hard work. It takes faith and belief that it is possible in the first place and then work and, yes, some luck. It takes help and not being afraid to ask for help and it takes scary moments where you have to step off of assistance and faith that you won’t immediately collapse.

Just don’t give up. Don’t you dare.

Never Ending – One-Liner Wednesday

I have learned that I have much to learn, master. –from To Light A Candle by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory


This is a quote from a book that I read way back in high school and I’ve been thinking about it lately due to all the things that have happened on the farm lately.

All but one of our does have kidded and because we typically don’t have problems with our does we weren’t prepared with the last doe to kid (our black Nubian, Ebony) came down with milk fever. I can never remember how to pronounce or spell the technical name of the illness). It means that no one can use her milk and we had to send the 2 remaining of her 3 kids over to a friend’s house to be adopted by one of their nanny goats that foster other does’ kids. They will be fine and we’ll get them back in 8 weeks when they can eat hay.

But we weren’t fast enough to react and lost the second doeling that Ebony had.

We thought we were prepared for things with our goats, thought that we had learned a great deal. And we have, but we aren’t done learning just yet and I doubt that we ever will be.

Either way, make sure to check out the original One-Liner Wednesday.
