Naked Ladies




I just like the sound of that phrase. Naked Ladies. Everybody got shorn last Friday, a real milestone in the year for a shepherdess. They all got their shots on Tuesday. Now we just have to wait to see if we are going to have lambs. Millie looks huge, but she is a pig and has a weight problem. They wouldn't be due until the end of April, so I guess they have time to pork up yet. I will try to be patient. They are stil in the barn, and it is such fun to go out and sit with them.

My kitchen is even more primitive this week. Last Sunday Jake took down the ceiling and exposed the rafters. Now he can look at it and do his "thinking". When he decides to do it, he will know what he wants to do. Yesterday he found a dealer where we can get our windows. It is local and on his way home from work. No extra trip needed. That is good with the cost of gas what it is.

Todd is on high-powered antibiotics through a "pick" line twice a day. He has found out that he is anemic, also. No reason so far. For someone who didn't have much energy anyway, he is really lethargic now. At least, I think that he is paying attention to what he eats. I suggested liver sausage. We used to eat it all the time when he was young. He even listened to me. His "lady in waiting" is getting huge and slow. Thursday he takes her to get x-rayed. That should give him an idea how many little creatures she is expecting. I hope he can handle all that he will have to do when they arrive. It will certainly be a new experience for him.

I love the title and the three pictures!! ;-)

Is Todd still in FL or did he come back up here? Will his prego pouch be delivered by C-section?

Your girls look very lovely, shorn...

That bulldog looks so much like Ruby, Rosie's mom who gave us two litters. (Note that I didn't say "raised," as all she did was lay still so they could nurse; I had to do everything else. Raising a litter of bulldog puppies is an exercise in round-the-clock care!)
