Great weekend.  It blew and was cold but in spite of that, we did a lot that after it was all said and done, we were able to have a sense of self-satisfaction.
We cleaned the barn, got rid of two 'junk' vehicles and one 'junk' lawn mower, and made a milking station.  Of course, I crossed off the major life milestone of "milking a goat".  
DH was very good about helping me all weekend with the milking including holding the goat while I milked.  In spite of that, the goat got antsy and tried to go her separate way.  So DH did what was necessary to calm her down including singing an original tune to the goat.  Very funny.  The goat just stopped and stared into his eyes and they've been champs ever since.  The milk looks absolutely yummy, creamy and pure white.  I haven't tried it yet but will this week.  The goat milk soap is going to have to wait until after graduation but am looking forward to that too.  The other noticeable thing is how empty the corrals are.  We're going to need lots more goats. :) We did completely change the plan and won't be putting the goats in the south corrals so I think our fencing project just got a whole lot smaller.  We are instead getting the old barn ready for them.

So now back to the to do list --
THIS WEEK'S AG VENTURE TO DO LIST:
1.  Complete the "Dreams" section on business plan with Jay.
2.  Plant onions, potatoes, and work on the landscaping.
(Not very business minded but we have to get ready for graduation for the next three weeks.  Bear with me)
