Starting on 2012 goals .......

After many months the "publish post" button at the bottom of the page is finally working again. For the past few months I had to save as draft and then publish from there. Another added bonus is the spacing between paragraphs are working too, yeahhh! (hope I haven't spoken too soon)
We have broken our 2012 goals right down to baby steps, 15 - 30 minutes at a time, for instance we spend this much time in the garden a day and over a period of time we 'should' reach our goal, in general we have taken the same approach to most things done on the farm. I now have seedlings ready to be planted, the first garden bed for the year. Some of these have been brought and some I have grown from seed.
Our eldest DS and his family are due anytime now and will be spending the better part of the week with us, so thought I'd get a quick blog update in now. What he doesn't know yet is that we have a list of jobs we need a hand with whilst he is here, like moving the clothes line, hehehe.
We are currently averaging 6-7 litres of milk a day from our two milking goats. (Pictured above "Lilly" ready to be milked, this is her second lactation) DH and DD have mastered the art of making yoghurt using the goats milk, so that it doesn't turn out "too" runny, a tablespoon of powered milk is also added. Not only have they been busy making yoghurt but have made a fantastic batch of fetta cheese. Yummmmy! This is way different from the cottage cheese they normally make.

Delicious.
Glad you have figured out your blogger issues. I have the same trouble on my son's computer. he told me it is because I use the older version of blogger and his computer likes the newer one.
Good luck with your 2012 goals. I think you have the right idea about baby steps.

Maybe I should "take a leaf out of your garden" and spend 15 minutes a day in mine. Then the weeds wouldn't look so daunting.

A small amount of time in the garden daily is wonderful, rain or shine.
