Hello Friends & Folk ~
Blustery day today here at the farm….
high winds & rain.
gloomy but almost balmy out with temps in the 50's.
I mentioned in my earlier postings that Minew is expecting.
her belly is full of squirm-y kittens now!
(I have been calling her 'Polly McWaddle')
here is a profile:
...and here is a full frontal shot:
|look at the sides of her belly!|
she is such a loving cat ~
she loves her belly rubbed and as big as she is, she rolls over for me…
hoping she has the kittens soon ~ we can't wait!
(perhaps she'll gift me with them on my bday?)
|our little mother...|
Minew has been sleeping in Peter's workshop ~
...where he can keep an eye on her.
(I swear he's more excited about these kittens than I am!)
He's been out there cutting & milling wood for the Hookinpunch© frames ~
|cutting a huge log to be milled|
...this thing scares me!
he works hard everyday in that workshop…
~ for hours at a time.
of course, besides having Minew for company,
he gets plenty of help from our Friends….
and if Buddy gets a little too much attention,
then Lazy has to make sure Peter divides it evenly…
because they work so hard here too ~
making sure we remember to take breaks from our work to pet them,
and assuring that not one visitor goes without a proper welcome,
each one of them gets a biscuit…
... after visiting all of them down in the workshop,
I took a walk around the front yard to where the piles of snow once where…
...and this is what I found:
|G R E E N !!!|
my narcissus are poking their tiny heads out of the dirt next to an old tree-stump…
oh how I want to play in that dirt!!!
|welcome little sprouts!!|
but I will wait ~
...instead I'll head back in the farmhouse and do a little needlework
and listen to the rain on our old tin roof…
Hoping your day is filled with friends and thoughts of Springtime :)
* Blessed be *
