My Typical Morning

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

What does a typical morning look like for me?

Goats - first thing - every morning. I try to be outside milking by 5:30. Last year I got so tired of milking at 7:00 or 8:00 because by then the hot sun and the flies where out - not fun! This year I'm enjoying cool milking mornings and fly-free experiences. Much better.

Pearl's babies have grown so fast - just another month and we will have to sell them! It's always kind of sad to see them go; but they're fun while they're here and I can always look forward to next year's crop of babies.

Right after milking, I bring the milk inside to strain it. (Look at that huge bucket in comparison to the low level of milk. Pearl's not exactly the biggest milk producer, but it's enough for us!)

Straining time. I've since gotten a stainless steel funnel, so I don't have to worry about using plastic anymore.

The finished product! We normally get 1/2 a gallon per milking, but this time I had to discard 1/2 a quart because we had a "hoof problem" during milking!

When I come inside, the little boys are usually in their booster seats eating cheerios. 30 minutes later we have family devotions, breakfast, chores, and then school. Isaac looks wacky here because he didn't want me to take a picture of him. But Joshua was more than happy to have his own photo taken!
