Heading To The Mountains

The only way to get through my house at the moment is through little trails between the stacked boxes. I have been packing all week so I will have things at the cabin. I leave early Saturday morning and I still have lots to pack and plants that need digging up to take with me. Very excited to be going back to the mountains but keep rethinking what I want or need to take this trip. I will be up a few weeks taking care of Justin during the day while Melody is at work. Justin doesn't really need a babysitter, just someone to give him his meds through his port 3 times a day. Be there if he needs anything and fix him lunch. I will have plenty of time to work on the cabin and make flower and vegetable gardens. It is suppose to rain tonight and tomorrow morning. The plan is to pack the truck and trailer tomorrow afternoon and evening. We will get up before daylight to feed and milk. William will be driving me to Statesville where my son in law will meet us. We will hook the trailer to his truck and put whatever is in our truck in his. William will head back home and I head on to the mountains. Its a crazy plan but William needs his truck and son in law is bringing a empty trailer for William to use while I have his in the mountains. Our neighbor Chuck will be keeping an eye on the homestead till William gets back along with Bella who has free run of the place and is a excellent guard dog. Everything seems to be falling into place.

Have found a home for my goats Buttons and Mammie. They will be going to my elderly friend Gerda's daughter. She has a farm with horses but is wanting goats to milk, chickens for eggs, and to grow herbs and veggies. We are able to set her up with all of this. She already got some herb plants and will be getting the goats and hens in a couple weeks. Downsizing our animals to such good homes has really been a blessing. Our Great Pyrenees puppies have all gone to loving good homes. Robby and Olivia are together on a big farm. Mammie and Buttons will be together on a loving farm. The baby bucklings will be old enough next week to go to new homes. Already have a guy that is wanting 2 of them for his goat herd. Lil Vicki, Mary, and Rosemary will be going to the mountains this summer. God is sure helping make this move a smooth one.

Thank you again for all the prayers for the grandsons. They seem to be on the road to recovery. We are very blessed. May your day and weekend be overflowing in blessings.

May God's loving protective arms be around you as you travel. This will be a nice weekend to come up here weatherwize. Not too hot and no storms.

Wishing you a smooth and easy move. We are moving house in four days, and I am way too wound up. I hope both you and the animals are able to get to the other side with the very minimum of stress. Best wishes and a hug.
