This and That
Kathleen is having a ornament exchange. I took part last year and had such fun. I am joining in again this year. If you think you might want to take part pop on over to her blog and get the info.
We have rain! We have had a few showers Wednesday and Thursday but last night and today we have had steady rain. It sounds so good I didn't even mind milking and feeding in the rain. The ducks and geese are having a ball playing in the mud puddles. The goats on the other hand are staying in their stalls so they don't get wet. They do not like getting wet at all.
I made Fran's scrapbook with her cards. She has 36 right now and when I took her book over to her today she was sitting on her porch watching for the mailman. She had her raincoat and umbrella all ready. Its great how getting cards in the mail has put such a sparkle in her eye and more pep in her step. Thanks again to each of you. You really made her day.
Bud, the iguana has gotten lazy on me. He usually goes down his tree and uses the bathroom in the bottom corner of his house. The other day he was laying on his heating pad and watching me fill his food bowl. He seemed to just look and smile at me and then pooped on his pad. He then got up and moved over waiting on me to clean it up. I put a clean cover on his pad and he then walked back over and laid down. He did this again today. He seems to just smile at me as if to say I know you will clean it up and I don't have to climb down the tree. Think he has me trained.
He is in heaven with his heating pad and heat lamp and doesn't want to leave long enough to potty.
Mommy Kitty and Baby Kitty have decided my stack of picnic baskets is the perfect place to take naps or just rest. I finally put a towel down so it would be softer for them. I already have a small blanket on the organ for baby kitty as she likes to sleep on the keys. They pick strange places to rest.
Its suppose to be in the 40's at night this weekend. I am looking forward to having a small fire in the evenings to knock the chill off. That means I can keep the kettle warming on top of the wood stove for cups of tea and hot chocolate. I just love cool and cold weather!
Hope each of you have a wonderful weekend. Don't forget to count your blessings no matter how small.
