We, it seems, are going to have one busy week ahead of us. Friday afternoon the fence was completed. There are still a few small things that need to be done to be actually “complete” but it is finished enough to get our sheep and goats home. Doing that is going to be the busiest part of our week, though. Monday we will head into Altoona to do our coffeeshop runs, visit the chiropractor and get animal feeds. From there we will head south to the Harvest Barn to pick up some groceries (we are on our last package of bacon from our pig and only have stewing chickens left), then west to pick up our sheep. The distance from our place to our sheep is about three hours, so the plan is the head in to get them, then hang out for just a bit, then head back home, hoping the kids don't melt down while we're on the road. Being in the truck seems to help, and I am going to try to dig a car adapter out of the camper for the dvd player in hopes of them keeping slightly occupied watching that.
Tuesday is our pickup for the buying club, after which we will most likely head into town to drop off some orders and hopefully join Sarah D to pick up a new-to-me camera and buy a lens for said camera in preparation of the weekend and to replace the one that remains lost. My kids are young for only a short time and a camera gone this long is no good.
Wednesday we head to Woodward to visit Picket Fence Creamery, Prairieland Herbs and Northern Prairie Chevre with friends. At NPC we plan on picking up our goats, and then bringing them home with us while we are out there.
Thursday is free thus far-so we will probably stay home so we can prepare for the weekend.
Friday we are heading to Good Guys to look at cars, then afterward heading down to Chariton to camp for the weekend with friends. And thus, all weekend will be gone with friends. I will most likely come back to check on things since the animals will still be new to the place.
