I think we have made a decision on our cat dilema.  We are going to try to catch our wild (nearly feral) cat, Will, and take him to the vet for a checkup, shots, and have him neutered.  He stopped in for breakfast this morning, and Cooter couldn’t stop cuddling him.  Will knows (knock-on-wood) not to get in the backyard, and he was somewhat tame up until the point he started wandering off and getting into cat fights.  So, if we can get him to stick around and be Cooter’s buddy, life will be good again for the little guys.  Cooter’s going to lose his voice from crying so much if we don’t get something figured out soon.  I called the vet, explained the situation about how we may or may not get him caught, so we are tenatively scheduled for tomorrow.  Let’s hope we can catch him without any major injuries. LOL

It’s my last day at work for the week, and I couldn’t be happier.  We have plans to side the front of our shop turned garage.  Dad will be down tomorrow evening to show my dh how to get it started.  I will be weeding the gardens, digging cactus in the pasture, and all my housekeeping chores this weekend.  We are out of bread, so that is at the top of my list. 

My peppermint leaves smell incredible.  I’m going to have to start putting those to good use soon.  I have to tie up my cauliflower in hopes it will be ready before it turns off too hot.  My potatoes need more dirt around them.  I have got to get creative with my potato growing next year.  The lettuce is in full swing as well as the onions, peas need picked, and there are more onions and potatoes to plant.  Oh, and our sheep and lambs need to be wormed (again) due to the extremely wet weather we have been having. 

I have a feeling I will need longer than three days to get my list accomplished, but I’m going to do the best I can.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
