Sad Day on the Farm

This morning when I went out to feed the goats, one of the babies had died during the night. I don't have any idea what could have happened to him. Yesterday we cleaned the barn and put all fresh bedding down. Both babies were jumping around and acting fine. I was totally shocked to find him this morning already cold and gone. Tears were shed at our house this morning.

On a side note, our internet access is down at our house right now, so we can only connect by taking the laptops from the house to where we can get access. Which is slightly inconvenient to say the least. So that accounts for my lack of recent posts. Hope to get things sorted soon, but there's always a list of higher priorities to make it through first!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
