All's Well

I thought I'd add a quick report for my loyal followers;

The Moose and I are doing just fine.  Busier than a one-armed paper hanger, but just fine.  We have 17 new piglets (bacon bits as Pioneer Preppy likes to call them) at The Compound, 16 from our own sows and 1 that was found on the side of the road of all things.  She's just darling and won't leave her adoptive mothers side, and mom just loves on her too.  So all's well on that account.

We have two new turkey chicks, and hopefully more on the way.  4 of the hens are back to laying on eggs again.  Seems weird to me, but I guess if they don't have any following them around, then they feel left out.  So we'll see in a couple of weeks if we have any other new chicks.  With the bird issues in other parts of the country, the fact we may indeed have a turkey on our table at Thanksgiving is nice.

I think I've sold my rabbits.  The Holland Lop Ears are cute as a button, but at this point, I'd like to lighten the load.  It's not that they take much time, or really cost that much money.  I'd like to see someone else that really wants them raise and breed them.

Weather is turning hot and HUMID, and we're starting to see the normal summer afternoon rain pattern go into full swing.

Other than that, hope you're all doing well.  I do stop by your blogs and see what you're up to on occasion.  Wishing you all the best.

Short Hiatus

Life is on a changing course for us personally and at The Compound.  But that's life, if we stayed stagnant we'd start to smell like a muddy pond or in our case the pig wallow.  Appetizing right?

I don't have much to offer as an explanation at this point.  I will be in and out periodically over the next couple of months.  I just won't be posting very much.  There are things God has put in our path that we need to give our full attention too. 

So to those that follow along, and send me notes or phone calls to see what's up and why I've not posted, everything is fine.  We just need to embrace the change in our lives and all that God springs forth.  We are truly blessed.

In just a few short weeks we'll have owned The Compound for 5 years.  We purchased the property in May 2010.  I started the blog several months later, as a journal of our progress.  In that amount of time, I've written 490 entries including this one, and I have now reached over 100,000 page views!

All I can say is thanks for following along!  You are much appreciated!  For those that have taken the time to comment, an extra big thank you!
