Update on premies, food, and film

The baby goats are improving quickly. At 24 hours of age, the bigger one started taking her first steps, and the little one finally stood. Now that she can stand, she looks even bonier and tinier. The bigger one is trying to stand on her hind legs and look over the top of the laundry basket, but every time she tries, she falls down. Still, we'll have to find another place for them to stay, since it doesn't look like it will be long before she can jump out of the basket.

As you might have imagined, we haven't been following my menu very closely for the past couple days, because things have gotten kind of crazy. I really want to tell you how we've handled it, but I don't have time right now. I did remember to take a turkey out of the freezer, so we can have roast turkey breast for dinner Sunday.

We're getting ready for our screening of "Fresh" tonight at 7:00. We've cleaned out the smaller barn and will be watching it in there. Last night, we went to see "Food, Inc," and I am really excited to tell you about it, but that will have to wait too.

I use big Rubbermaid containers, but the premies are so small you could use a small tote.
We put a puppy pee-pee pad on the bottom and cover it with hay.
They're just adorable!!

Thank you for hosting a screening of FRESH! How was the event? Was the film well received? Did it generate a good discussion? Would love to hear your feedback.

Hi Lisa, and welcome to my blog! A dozen guests attended the screening, including children, who didn't watch it. I had four or five families say they wanted to come but couldn't make it for a variety of reasons. Can we do a second screening?

We did have a good discussion afterwards. Another woman and I, who have raised baby chicks, were really disturbed by the way the chicks were thrown on the floor of the confinement building.

I plan to review the film on the blog within the next couple days!
