Sledding, Road Trips and A Goat Shed
Well the weather in eastern Kentucky has been crazy. Thursday all of us were grounded for snow and Sunday it was sunny and about 60 degrees out, so in a matter of a few days the weather has turned around. I’m hoping this is a sign that spring is coming soon. As I said Thursday we were grounded so some of us decided to take advantage of the few inches of snow we had. This resulted in some sledding at the Floyd House. There are actually a few decent size hills around our house and we got some good sledding time in. There are pictures to prove it!
On Friday Bethanie (my housemate) and I ventured to the big city of Lexington. This is quite a culture shock when you live in a town with about 500 people and then go to a major city like Lexington which has thousands of people. We usually don’t venture into Lexington very much, but when we do it’s usually and eventful trip. On this particular trip we were meeting up with two of our former housemates. We met Rachel and Rachel (yes, both of their names are Rachel, it was a very confusing time in our house when they both lived with us!) and had some lunch and then hit up a few of the stores in the mall and of course since both Bethanie and I are avid coffee drinkers as well as Dunkin Donuts fans, we made a stop at Dunkin Donuts to get our fix for the next few months. Who knew you could miss good coffee so much! Luckily both of our parents hooked us up at Christmas with lots of quality coffee from Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks and a local coffee shop in Rhode Island. So we can still enjoy some quality coffee while living in eastern Kentucky.
Saturday, myself and some other volunteers took a trip out to Harold’s house (our volunteer manager) and assisted with the building of a goat shed. Harold pretty much has a mini petting zoo at his house; it is pretty amazing. So when he told us that 3 of his goats were pregnant and he needed somewhere for them to give birth, of course we jumped on it to help build a goat shed. Two weeks before this myself and another volunteer, Kyle, went over to dig the post holes for the shed and since then Harold had framed up the roof for the shed and put up the the needed supports for the siding we were going to put on the shed. So on Saturday we were siding the shed as well as putting a metal roof on it and luckily we got it all enclosed because apparently the goats were ready to give birth.I still haven’t heard if they have yet, but Harold was predicting they would sometime soon.
Needless to say my weekend was pretty eventful and I kept busy. Here are some pictures to enjoy from this adventurous weekend!
