Meet Lou, she is a mini Nubian, she was born on June 25, 2017. I was so excited to find her and I am hoping to be able to get her bred and have her produce goat milk, so that I can learn to milk her, make soap and lotion and maybe even learn to make cheese. I met the sweetest lady who owned her, and currently has her mother. She milks her mother and makes the items that I want to learn to make. I hope that we can get together when she is producing milk and I can learn some things from her. Of course, I have been looking on pinterest to learn all I can before it comes time to really be able to milk her and use her milk. I have thoroughly enjoyed finally just having the time to be able to do some of the things that I enjoy doing around my home. Thanks for stopping by and seeing my latest project. Gin

Dill PicklesWe've had an abundance of beautiful vegetables out of our garden this year, so I've been making pickles, chow chow, relish. Roasting tomatoes, making hot sauce, jellies, and any other goodies that I can think of.
I haven't posted in about 3 years. I was busy with grand baby number 2 when I last posted, and since then we have welcomed grand baby number 3 to the family. We treasure all the time that we get to spend with all 3 grands, and our daughters and their husbands.
We Love These precious grands!!!
In the last two and 1/2 years I have been busy. I took the activity director position at a nursing home and did this for 2 years. I loved so many of the people, but it was a lot like teaching and I was having to drive every day and so I decided to retire again from that occupation. I am now staying home and really staying busy. We have a garden this summer, so I have been canning and making pickles. Mustang grape jelly and many homemade goodies. We purchased some baby pygmy goats and just bought a mini nubian goat. I hope to be able to milk her and then make some cheese, lotion, and soap. When she is old enough. Oh yes, and we do have chickens. I'm going to be sharing some pics of all these precious animals on our Lazy B soon.
