  • Yesterday I pulled out my mandolin for the first time in months - it felt good...except for my fingers, which are rather sore.  Gotta work on building up my callouses again.
  • I am SO ready for Spring - did I say that last time?  Well, I am.  Desperately.  Some 60* or 70* weather would be most welcome right now!
  • My ewes will be lambing pretty soon.  At the end of this month or in the first week of April, according to my calculations.   I can't wait to have all of those sweet little lambs running around just rejoicing to be alive.  And holding them in my lap.  Nothing, but nothing is cuter than a newborn lamb...except human babies:)
  • At the same time, I'm not looking forward to waking up 3 or 4 times during the night for about a week to go outside in the freezing cold and check on them.  That's probably not really necessary, but...I'm a worrier, and I sleep much better knowing that everyone is still alive and staying warm.
  • What's going to be really hard, is not having my doggy along to keep me company while I'm freezing outside with the sheep:(  But, I'll have my brother, so it could be worse:)
  • I dream of someday having a completely enclosed lambing shed, with a sleeping bag and a cot for me so I don't have to go back and forth from the house at night.  That. Would. Be. Sweet.
  • Okay, enough about lambs for now.  You'll be hearing plenty about them in the next few months.
  • This is one of my happy movies...
  • It makes me laugh:)  I mean, what could be funnier than chickens plotting to fly the coop?  Chickens with British accents. Chickens that dance.  Really, does it get any funnier than that? 
  • I couldn't find a video of the chickens dancing, but here's the song they dance to...
  • Gets me groovin' and movin';)
  • Oh, and I have no idea what's up with the background picture in the vid...it looks like a lighter to me.  No idea.
  • So, this week is my "movie fast" week.  I watch a lot of movies, especially during the winter, so this year I'm setting aside 1 week a month where I don't watch any movies, the only exception being watching a movie with my family in the evening.  Why?  Well, it's nice to have a whole week to rest my brain, spend more time with God, and just get more stuff done without distractions.  Feel free to join me, if you'd like.  Maybe I should design a blog button...;)
  • I haven't seen any of my friends for over a week.  That makes me sad:'(
  • Dad and I are taking Bonnie to the vet for her knee re-check today.  I've been faithfully icing (as in, frozen water, not cake icing) her knee 4 times a day for the last 10 days.   The incision looks good so far, and she's starting get around a lot better.  I'll be glad when she's all better.  It's so lonely going to the barn without her:(
  • Oh, and have you all noticed anything?  I haven't mentioned LOTR at all in this post...until now, of course.  I'm saving all of my raptures and discoveries for this week's Wallpaper Wednesday.  You've been warned:)
  • Enter for a chance to win 5 vintage patterns!
Happy Trails, y'all!

I just got a severe case of the giggles as I pictured you using a spreading knife and very painstakingly frosting Bonnie's knee with pink, strawberry-flavored frosting :)

And Bonnie frantically licking it off as fast as I spread it on:)
 
I got this dog toy for Bonnie at the store the other day.  The name cinched it;)
 
It was SO good to talk to you just now - we really must do that more often, Cuz:)

Hehe... so picturing it! Poor Bonnie...
 
That is awesome. Bad Cuz. That's my new moniker :) And that is a hilarious and odd looking toy!
 
It was soooo good to talk to you. I hung up saying Lord, thank you for my cousin! <3 (And you're right; as we typically conclude, we definitely should do that more often :)

It is odd looking, isn't it?  Bonnie loves it:)
 
The Lord got that message from two people tonight, because that's what I said when I hung up, too:)

I haven't seen you in a while either, which makes me sad too.  We should get together sometime. And now that we both have our licens, it should make things easier :).
