Home again

We are finally back home again. My friend Deb and I went to see another mutual friend yesterday and spent the night. So Deb got to meet Rosie and us girls went shopping today. Well it was shopping to us but actually we went to a flea market and stopped by a couple Amish stores. We had a good day and found some bargains along the way.
While we were at Rosies house we went with her to milk this morning. She raises goats and milks them. So Deb set out to help milk. The goats are so sweet and well mannered.

Above is Deb milking.
And Rosie finished up and we had fresh milk in our coffee this morning before we went off shopping. I always enjoy visiting with Rosie and her family. We got started home kinda later or at least later than I had planned. Home again and pretty tired. So its off the bed soon as we have some canning to do tomorrow. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

OMG ya kiddin. hunny ya aint lived yet. but if you ever do taste fresh milk you will not drink the store stuff again. We use lots of butter here too and I would so love to have good milk cow. I could use more cow milk than goat milk I think. Although when I go to my fren Rosies house we alas have fresh goat milk ever morning in our coffee. Ya cant tell it aint cow milk but it jus dont make butter.
