Out of the Fog

I'm talking about my drug fog. I've found another drug I can't tolerate. Pretty much ruined my week-end, but I came too with the sun, as it arrived, following a very windy, rainy couple of days.

As it was Sunday, and a good turnover day for the fields, we moved a couple fences, and the one shed for the nannies and gang. Fortunately, this I could help with on the tractor.The yearlings, above, were coaxed onto the hill above the house and below the pond. Its a tough place to mow, and if there is a reason for goats, this area is it. Two weeks ago, the Pallet Palace was rebuilt on the hill. As you can see, the growth went wild in those two weeks. Notice, if you can, the green fence posts on the left and upper corner, going up the hill.
Also, all that greenery is not grass. There are a few large roses (the one takes up the top of the photo), raspberry brambles, and many varieties of weeds and grasses that will fatten these yearlings some more.
And the hill is great climbing for them.
Lets see how this area looks in two weeks.

Looks like the caprine gang really enjoy the new fields!

A five-star restaurant, for sure! Have thought about you, hope your knee is on the mend. About three weeks ago, my right leg collapsed (while standing in the kitchen, preparing to crack an egg). Doc said my knee's a mess, from an old ski injury. We leave Tuesday for Europe, returning Aug. 4th. Doc's cautious about the knee (must wear a brace)...I'm a bit nervous. What's your solution/therapy?

Oh Dear! You are scaring me.

The MRI showed no tear, so I need further diagnostics. Don't know where this path will lead. Working on a good knee orthopedic surgeon to find the problem. Then a solution.

I'm worried about summer travels, but right now, I can't even walk steps properly.

Have a fantastic trip and stay well.

Hello again,

I sure hope you feel better soon.

I'm stopping by again to tell you I left a little present for you over on my blog. Please stop by to take a look.

Very best,

Loved the goat pics, I had a pet goat when I was about ten years old. Great post, thanks for the memories.
