Biscuit’s leftover fur! This groomer has too much time on his hands!

    I took myself out to a local farmer’s shop, they had eggs, and chickens, ducks and goats! And they had little cups of food to feed the animals, just pick one up. I fed the goats over the fence, I’ll just open the gate and go in next time. Of course they have a sign that if you let the goats out, you have to catch them! It was the high point of the day!

      Dee – that’s funny – try catching a goat who thinks they’ve gotten away with something – like escaping thru the gate. Hahaha!!!! The visual is hilarious!

    The pony and the parakeet get my top votes, but I must admit the chickens are a close runner up. Any child who gets to have a pet is a lucky kid.

    Cool and sunny here today. I spent 12 hours in the sewing room trimming fabric. Barely made a dent.

    Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.

      San – explain “trimming fabric” – 12 hours? Wow, that’s a lot of trimming. You’d better rest up today!

        When I lived in Colorado I was able to take Harriet Hargrave’s beginning classes on the Mary Ellen Hopkins method. Harriet instructed us to find our favorite strip width and cut extra. I still follow this method and have been cutting (and using up) 2″ strips ever since. There was a stack of solid blues,pinks, reds, and a bit of green to cut into 2″ squares. These will be used in a future Amish project.

        After that, I moved on to the stack of starched fabric waiting to be cut into other size strips for various projects. When I reach a stopping point, the strips go into their respective bins. Some are cut into squares, which go into their respective bins. There are many ongoing projects in my sewing room, but if I get bored or need an emergency baby quilt, there’s a bin of cut squares to open and play with.

    the pets and kids are all so lovely. even the pets alone are lovely. the wilderness trail looks very inviting. i met with the angel (charity) group yesterday. only 17 of us. we’ve gotten so large that there is little time to actually visit. one of the ladies came up and gave me a big hug. that was warming to me. met a new lady and we seemed to hit it off well. as usual i am very tired and will be for a day or two more. went out with my new portable concentrator (small enough to carry), it works on demand which means i must breathe through my nose or it doesn’t work. i did okay but oxygen levels dropped as i was preparing to leave, the usual talking, saying goodbye and picking things up. once i was in the car and sitting the situation resolved quickly. otherwise i did fine. first hurdle passed. unfortunately no sewing for two days now. love reading the blog about nothing. it always cheers me up. patti in florida

      Patti – you did it! You went out with your new gadget and did fine – and wasn’t it fun to see everybody? I’ll bet they were glad to see you, too. And yes, now you’ll need to rest and that’s ok, too. Do what you have to do and no more.

    I worked outside today. Watered trees mostly. Yesterday I repotted 4 Christmas cacti and now I have 9 pots of them. We’ve had beautiful weather lately. I’ve been up late so I could view the Northern Lights. I’ll send you some photos, Mary.

    Well what smiles these photos brought to me. Thanks Mary. All just warm your heart knowing the animals are cared for by such good mommies and daddies. We all take a role in nurturing so happy Mother’s Day.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you all. Enjoy your day. This group of pictures are amazing. Brought a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing.

    In Ireland when I was there they were celebrating MOTHERING DAY as many women are more of a mother than those who have given birth so this day celebration covers all of them so I wish all women that are birth mothers and mothers of the heart May your day be wonderful.

    So funny … Keeper had his buddies over to play, but he’s still carrying his ‘pet possum’! Love it!
