Remember that indentation in the hay bunk? It was gone this morning!!!
I played for our church service this morning and then came home to a quiet day. Last night we went to Becky’s for supper and her son and his wife, Danny and Virginia, were there with their 8 month old adopted dog named Ruby! I told them all about Jo’s Ruby – did you see that Jo has some exciting news to share with us in Friday’s post?
I have several book reviews to catch up on and giveaways – coming soon!
It was 50 degrees today – no kidding! The tribe was in the pasture and the older hens were up by the bird feeder. It was absolutely balmy outside. Rick drove to our local Ace Hardware and picked up their remaining 6 Christmas trees which we feed to the goats. They love them to eat, chew on, and itch the tops of their heads and the best part is that pine needles are a natural wormer. Yes!
Here is the missing Improv quilt picture.
Tammy is going to the vet tomorrow and it will be a real challenge. I’ve never managed to get her into a carrier and both Connie and I tried one time together – impossible. She has a dermatitis of some kind – probably an allergy but her skin is so broken out that I have to try my hardest to get her there.
And look at these two eggs Rick got yesterday – one teeny tiny one and one long narrow green one.
I have found several of these through the years and here’s a few in a goldfinch nest made of goat hair. The pen is shown for scale.
And now for my biggest struggle – you might think it’s being able to walk – haha, no, that’s not it. Sleeping!!! Since knee surgery two months ago I have not been able to get to sleep even though I take meds for this hereditary problem and have for quite awhile. I might get 2 hours of sleep a night and right now I’m so sleep deprived, I simply don’t feel well. At my pre-op appointment this week, my dr. decided to try a different med but then she forgot to call the pharmacy and by the time I discovered it, the clinic was closed for Christmas so I have’t gotten to try it. I’ll bet many of you have trouble sleeping like me but I also bet your husbands simply roll over and they’re asleep immediately- so aggravating, isn’t it?
So as tired as I am, I can’t get to sleep and now it’s dark again and I know it will happen again tonite- ugh. So I guess I’ll hit the sewing room again – maybe tonite will be different.
What did I forget to write about – my brain is too tired to remember. New patterns tomorrow!
