Temporarily Throwing In The Towel

I am taking a brief hiatus from blogging,
 While my computer woes get sorted out.
 In the meantime, 
I will keep posting photos and updates on life on the farm 
over on Instagram...

 I miss our visits, 
But blogging with one finger on a tiny screen is difficult at best.

 In the meantime, come and visit us on Instagram...
It’s built for posting by phone.

Still Blogging By Phone

Our three black rescue kitties are growing by leaps and bounds.
They have become quite capable...
Able to scale the walls of the stall to sit on the edge...
they “mew, mew, mew” to let us know how they long for their freedom.
Dr. Becky looked at them the other day and felt they were still too young
to neuter, so it looks like they will have to remain in captivity
just a bit longer.
They spent their days playing kitten games
 (in their rather large stall), 
climbing the walls, and napping beneath their heat lamps.
Despite what they would have us think,
they really don’t have it bad at all.

Brown Sammie met the kittens face to face the other day.
As soon as I have my computer back,
That I can edit and upload video..I will share that with you.

I spent a portion of the weekend with these two little ones.
What fun we had!
Mack is a regular little farm girl... eager to help out with chores.
Easton spends his time saying “Ma’am! (that is how he says Grammie at the present)
Go-go!” ( his word for the gator)
He’d spend every minute in the gator if he could.

I am hoping to get my computer back sometime this week.
Then I will work on a proper blog post.
Btw... Hubbs made it home safely from his Florida road trip.
We are all glad he’s home!

Checking In

Blogging on my phone means typing via the hunt and peck method...
Not easy when one is feeling chatty.
Also I cannot get the phone to stop capitalizing the first word of each line.
Poetry, it thinks.
(Ooh....just figured it out.)

Hubbs is still in sunny Florida hanging out with elder relatives
and playing a lot of Yahtzee!

I’m staying on top of farm chores and trying to finish my vine sweater.
Yesterday I spied my first bluebird.
That prompted me to get out and clean out all of the (many) bluebird houses
here on the farm.

I love seeing what the birds use to make their nests.
Sometimes they use moss or leaves or twigs,

and sometimes they use chicken and Guinea feathers.

It’s not unusual to see a couple of the bird houses taken over by mice.
You can tell as soon as you open the side door and see the empty nut shells.

When I dropped the contents of this house onto the snow, a little mouse ran away. 
He stopped about 3 feet from me and looked back at me as if to scold me
for having destroyed his home.
 I felt so bad, but when it comes to the farm pecking order… 
I’m afraid mice are on the bottom of the list.

 Yesterday, being Valentine’s Day,
I decided to give my fur friends some special treats.

I received a few valentines from my hubby in the form of a scavenger hunt....
Texting me clues throughout the day.
I am very lucky… He’s one romantic guy!

Come on Mom.... can we go home now?

Happy Valentines Day

From all of us to YOU...
Happy Valentines Day!

I am still computerless.
Apple Engineering determined that I have some corrupt hardware,
So now the computer must go for repairs.

I am blogging from my phone... 
not the easiest...
But do-able.

Donkey kisses and piggy hugs from your friends on the farm!

It’s 26 degrees and snowing outside.
I am sitting here finishing the sleeves of a sweater.
The fireplace is roaring.
Chester is asleep beside me.
Annie and Sam ran off into the darkness early this morning and have not returned.
Needless to say, worry has replaced the peace in my soul.
My computer is in the hands of Apple’s engineering department...
Some sort of software malfunction, they think.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will be able to fix the problem... 
blogging by phone is less than perfect...
Though not impossible.

I’ve uploaded videos that would have been today’s post
Into my Instagram story. 

Now it’s time to go back out and check on the animals.
I hope wherever you are is warm and cozy!
Keeping my fingers crossed that my AWOL dogs are soon home.
