As I mentioned before I received an email from Amazon stating that all my kindle ebooks are in Germany now plus I’m told in Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg. This last weekend I entered my books on http:www.//webstore.com which is an auction, but I used the fixed price option. My paperback books are affordable. If you’re interested in Iowa based Amish and Cozy Mystery books take a look.
So as for the outside work, this week we weaned the March born baby lambs and goats. They are shut in the barn which doesn’t have thick enough walls to keep us from hearing their protests at being taken away from the mothers. The at one time, smaller than a cat baby goat has grown and is in with the other protesters. He’s first one out the door when I go in to see how he’s doing.
Yesterday we took a few head of older stock to the Kalona Salebarn. That takes most of the day since we live miles away but is an enjoyable drive. We watched our stock sell and in between we watched poultry and other smaller animals sell in another area. My husband bought three bunnies. They’re small, white with black stripes fuzz balls, but they will grow fast.
We ate at the Kalona Salebarn cafe. No peanut butter cream pie on the menu yesterday but we did get the coconut cream pie they were out of a few weeks ago. As usual all the food is delicious when prepared by Amish cooks.
The littlest Amish children were barefoot. Just watching them made me want to do the same so I peeled off the shoes when I got home. One sweet little boy in a lemon shaded shirt gave me the nicest smile when he passed me. That made my day.
The spring shower that we drove through when we headed south left puddles on the side the road but missed our area. My flowers were so dry they were wilting, and the seeds hadn’t tried to sprout in the garden. I watered the flowers before I decided that I’d left the geraniums, I brought downstairs, on the front porch long enough. I set out some and put the vineing ones in pots. Just in time, because after dark, wouldn’t you know we got a downpour with a 60 mile an hour wind. I expected the flowers to be in shreds up against the yard fence, but I lucked out. All the plants are in their place and looking fairly good so far. I hear round two is tonight.
