More stuff...

Sometimes I feel lonely as I don't have any friends with the same sorts of interests as me.  I can talk to my family and of course my blogging friends about livestock and gardening, but I miss having any face-to-face meetings.  Throught the Alberta Chickens Etc site, I have been emailing with a lady who lives in our community and I'll be visiting her farm this Wednesday.  I'm so excited as she has chickens, ducks, geese and goats.  I love goats, but Husband is totally set against ever having one on our acreage.  I'm hoping to establish a friendship with her... so far so good via email!

She is in the process of hatching out some African Goose eggs and I will be purchasing three goslings from her should the hatch work out.  I may be coming home with some new friends on Wednesday afternoon!

We've had two chicks hatch this afternoon/evening!  They are so adorable.  Daughter actually managed to catch the first chick hatching on film and I hope to post it soon once she has a chance to download it.

The neighbourhood fox was around yesterday and I managed to sit about 1.5 meters away from him and take some photos.  Hopefully once our geese are grown they will be keeping him away from our property.

This is the last post of the April blog challenge - 30 posts in 30 days!  Yeah!  I have to say I'm actually surprised that I was able to accomplish it.   As you can see I have four posts today as I was so busy with work I didn't have time the last few days - but it doesn't matter- I did it!

Congrats on the 30 posts in 30 days! Over at the northern homestead, I've been lucky to do one a week with the workload lately. I hope you continue to pump out the posts. :)

p.s. The African Geese look very cool!

Hi Jason, I had been over to your blog lately looking for a new post and podcast. Isn't it aweful when work gets in the way like that? haha How are your starter plants doing? Our garden is still covered in snow and we are really beginning to wonder of the May long weekend planting will happen this year.

Congratulations on completing the challenge! I did three posts the final day to get my 30 done. :)

Good luck with the goose eggs -- sounds like a fun addition.

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for the emails giving content ideas. And who would have thought you would have been scrambling to finish :)

Yeah, it was more of a challenge this time for me. :) But feels great to get another one done! Whew! This makes 5. And every time I make wonderful new friends. :)
