it's finally here!
The day we have been waiting for has finally arrived!
The lambs and their Mama arrive at 10:30 AM today!
And by 6:00 AM, I should have received a phone call from the local Post Office
that my 40+ chicks have arrived as well.
Oh, happy day!
Now, if only my camera had the ability to take photos of the future,
I could share the lambs arrival with you today.
As it is, that will have to wait for tomorrow's post.
But, what a post it will be....
babies, babies, babies!
We spent our weekend working on the spring chore list.
Amongst the items crossed off the list are:
clean basement front porch and paint wicker furniture
get the brooder house ready for chicks
install a steering wheel on the pirate ship
put the pile of accumulated tree limbs through the wood chipper
(...until the tractor stopped working)
clean out the garden shed
plant more spring veggies
hammer tomato stakes into the ground in the pumpkin patch
By late afternoon on Saturday, Hubbs and I were spent.
We took a quick breather on the front porch and propped up our feet.
It's always great to sit on the porch and listen to the birds...
watching the bird feeders and the trees for activity.
And there was lots of activity.
Sunday was a continuation of Saturday with the addition of ballroom dance lessons
for the bride-to-be and her dad...
and the groom (on left)
Everyone learned their steps and will use the next two months to practice.
Our last activity of the weekend was a hike to the stream with the dogs.
We placed the game cameras down by the water to watch who comes for a drink.
The periwinkle by the stream is in full bloom...a carpet of green and lavender...
just lovely...as is the stream...always beautiful.
I am happy to say that the chore list is slowly getting shorter.
However, lawn mowing season has arrived here on the farm.
And that's one activity that takes many hours each week.
I'm wondering if I could knit and mow at the same time!
So....stay tuned for lots of lamb photos tomorrow...
who knows, maybe a video as well.
