We are learning to milk goats and learning to drink goat milk.
We are saving our food scraps to feed our new piggies Hammy Bacon Breath and Pork Chop.
We are living without a microwave. It broke a few weeks ago and heard it would be expensive to fix (its attached to our stove) so thanks to the encouragement of a few friends, who are also microwaveless, we've just been doing without. So far so good!
We have also jumped on the juicing bandwagon. Well, jumping may be a bit too strong of a word, maybe more like stumbled onto it. I've watched a few documentaries on juicing/healthy eating and one of my goals for us for the year was to eat more fruits and vegetables. So far that has been lacking significantly. After camping, we made a pit stop to drop off Richie and Rachael and they whipped some juice up for us. We borrowed my mom's juicer to see how it went before we really take the plunge. I did make some pretty gross juice last night, but other than that they haven't been too bad. We don't want to overdo it so we are just starting out easy with fruits and vegetables that we recognize.
It all sounds a little strange, maybe we are becoming hippies or something. I did have a tie dye shirt on while milking the goat...
Will you say a little prayer for us today? There may be a few other (non-exciting) changes coming for our family.
