I came across articles on msnbc taking about sending care packages to college students today.
From City Slicker to Nation Bumpkin
Care Packages for Students
It absolutely was kinda funny because we are finishing up a little Halloween care package to send to Brianna today! that I ran across it!
Most people that the author interviewed (parents of students) had been professional care packages, whether or not they by themselves would not have enough time or cash to deliver them. I became surprised to get that some moms and dads thought they had been a waste of time.
They stated things like “they’re t old for silly things like that” and that college kids were “not at a summer sleep away camp.”
Humph I will be in my own forties and I still LOVE getting packages
And I also must really admit, I enjoy giving them.
I do believe it lets Bri realize that this woman is thought and loved of daily. It gives her a hug that is little home in a box
I love the process of buying products for the care packages, and her sisters like getting back in in the action Personally I think like she’s an active element of my day when I am in a position to l k for and put the items together.
The package that is first sent her ended up being saturated in things she forgot to bring along with a lot of candy, treats and surprises
The second one had some autumn dГ©cor in it, fall baked g ds and some trinkets.
The one we are sending today will likely be for Halloween! It offers Halloween treats, a small pumpkin, a Halloween straw plus some souvenirs that her sister and I also acquired on her behalf last week in Belize Oh, also a number of long sleeve shirts she asked for because of the c ler weather )
It is so important in life to celebrate !
commemorate the sunrise!
Celebrate two straight times of rainfall!
To commemorate one thing is to show pleasure that something g d or special has happened and each time brings g d and moments that are special! Some days those moments are more straightforward to find, but every day they are there.
Therefore today we celebrated my second born girly! She t k an important standard test, the PSAT, and survived. We’d her favorite meal and dessert waiting she got home for her when!
She loves her some starch Yummy pesto pasta and garlic bread )
And of course her dessert that is favorite of velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
And her small sisters produced sign celebrating PSAT time
So come to a decision that tomorrow, you will find something to celebrate !
Life is t brief to not.
Goat Milking 101
They have been introduced by me to you before, but in case you missed it.
L k at those sweet girls! Plus they work so hard for us, producing a combined gallon of milk per day!
Therefore, so how exactly does the milk get from goat to fridge? Well, I would ike to show ya
Our milking process starts at 5 15 every day. We begin by soaking bucket, strainer, and milk jars in hot bleach water for about ten minutes. I prefer to utilize Clorox bleach only when I have read recommendations that are several do so
Then it is set by us away to atmosphere dry for a bit.
Whilst it is drying we gather one other supplies to bring out towards the milking barn with us. Hmmm. milking barn may be a bit of a word that is optimistic it We began building it at the beginning of the summer and stalled since it quickly became t hot. Now our company is stalled because we have been at a percentage of it we need help with! The r f Our company is not just a tall family members )
It’s also as of this time that I obtain the materials ready for the purification and wake-ation processes! We do another filter go-around as s n as we bring the milk in through the barn.
Now this is the ingredient that is main our wake-ation procedure! a pot of coffee is unquestionably put on for Tori and I to take pleasure from following the milking is done
So we have Hazelnut International Delight Creamer Cuz’ you realize, no sit down elsewhere could be g d if it actually still tasted like coffee.
Then we slip on our super sweet, yet VERY used, work b ts and head out It is dark as s n as we start milking. Through the summer we were able to view the sun appear, but now it stays dark t long ( But we sure enjoy l king at the beautiful evening sky
Okay, so we leave towards the milking barn with all of the supplies and get all completely set up.
Like we stated, it’s dark when we first get out here so the initial thing we do is a snake check with the flashlight Sure don’t wish any snakes joining our milking celebration!!
The thing is the 3 buckets regarding the left? The one which is upside down could be the one I sit on. Usually the one in the middle is for trash, and the one in the bottom holds teat wipes Gotta involve some clean teats to get yummy milk!!
They are a few of the materials that we store down within the barn. giant feed bucket and beneath the tarp is some yummy alfalfa hay! Boy howdy do the girls love them some hay
That is known as a milking stanchion. We are borrowing this one while we are in the process of building our personal Oh and this image is from another day! Today it was dark you can not see what you’re snapping! so that it really was difficult to obtain the photos whenever!
Anyways, the goats simply hop on up and stick their small heads in the opening. They want it because this is the only time they get sweet feed and kid do they enjoy them some sweet feed
