Today it is kind of rainy. It's not really rainy but misty, cloudy, and windy. There is not a lot to do in this weather but be inside and find something useful to do. We had a good time with our friends yesterday. They came at about 11:00 a.m. and left at about 11:30 p.m. Not a lot of sleep time in between last night and this morning. I did get to sleep in until 9:20 p.m. this morning but I'm still tired. Maybe a nap before bed tonight would help.

I learned another song from a CD today. I don't know the name of it but the guitar flatpicking is pretty neat. The songs that I learn off from CDs are not exactly how the player played it (but it's pretty close). I have to make up my own parts for some of it when I can't follow along with what they are doing.

This morning we had two cats that fell into the used oil bucket by the semi. A BIG MESS! We had to bring them in and soap them up (which a cat does not like) and rinse them off and soap them up and rinse them off and over and over but we still didn't get all of it off. Right now they are a little greasy and where the white was it is now brown colored.

We have switched the milking chores from Jonathan to Andrew and I. I do it in the morning and then I hope Andrew will take his turn tonight. Jonathan's chores is taking care of the 50 baby chicks that we have and he will be taking care of fifty more after they come sometime this week. David's chores is feeding and watering the cats and dogs (that is pretty easy to do!).

I'll talk later,

Hi Peter.

Sounds like sombody better watch where they put used oil. I save mine in closed containers like 5gal cans or milk jugs.

I think cats would be happier if you
took care of potiential dangers. Who knows what the next catastrophe might be.

Keep up the good blogs
