Working hard

We have been working on building a milk shed. Our cow, Beauty, delivered a handsome bull calf last Sunday. It has been fun being the hired hand. My husband is the designer and builder. I am just the fetch, carry and hold person. I enjoy working with him. We have a good time and get much discussed over hammer, nails and screws.

We should be milking her soon. That should actually read "I". It will be my job. I'll let you know how that goes. I have milked goats but this should be an interesting change. We are all looking forward to drinking milk again. We have been milk deprived for almost nine months. Since we moved back. Of course now we will need to work out what we will be doing with all that milk. The kids I am sure will contribute to the suggestion box. :)

Hope your Mother's Day is a wonderful one!
