As I type this, we are having a sleet storm outside. Keith managed to get to the feed store earlier today... and I to church at 4... but the sleet is now coming down steadily.
We'll have to be so careful tomorrow, as we are to get
snow starting around 10 PM, on the ice base.
We got a package in the mail yesterday, and in it, were green branches from Oregon, from
our friends Tweedles, Georgie and Paulette.
We are so grateful to you for bringing the smell of the Oregon forests into our little living room.
Someone was in time out this morning.
She finally got up and went across the pasture and made herself at home in the chicken house. When I went out to put her back in... she came running out right to me. She was chasing Windy again, and kept trying to mount and breed her. Yes, Delilah is definitely a doe. Yes, Windy is definitely a doeling.
She not only chases her, Delilah lifts her up in the air and positions her with her head and horns, the poor little girl. She will run in circles to try to get away.
Sometimes, if I separate them for a while, it will calm Dee down. She had a pile of hay and a water bucket, just out of view to the right of the gate into the goatyard.
The one with the rime of ice building on it.
You can see Keith is loaded for bear before going outside to go to the feed store.
But my red geranium that was on the deck is blooming again for Christmas! Isn't that wonderful?
It's been in my bedroom for the fall, but is going out into the kitchen for the week.
This was what greeted me when I got home from church tonight!
It was so good to get safely inside with these smiling .... errr... faces!
My family Christmas weekend is all turned around with the bad weather we are having, but
we will salvage what we can and see our relatives on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday as we can.
I'm so glad our little Carson was born LAST weekend while the driving was safe.
And for those of you who are interested in the paranormal... what ARE those three orbs on the Christmas tree? I don't have any lights that size!
And we got another package yesterday from our little friends Stella Rose, Angus McConnell, and Maggie Mae, the Three Little Pugs.
And there goes Lil out the door with her big bone!
Stay warm, my Friends!
