Not again?

This look familiar? Mother Nature has taken her opportunity to dump on us again - OK, so once a winter, I can take, but enough is enough. The dufus brothers took the opportunity to play a little kick ball with their water bucket, so this afternoon, they were out munching on snow. Actually, the girls had water and they were out munching on snow too - must feel like eating a snow cone, don't you think...

















The roads have been pretty scarey - but I made it to work every day - here's our driveway after a lot of shoveling on the part of my DH - It's pretty much a straight shot now that the county has been through a couple of times -

Yesterday John took me in, with my 8 dozen cookies in hand - they disappeared in no time at all - To celebrate my birthday my friend & co-worker Tamara took me to lunch at our favorite Chinese buffet - and John came and picked me up at the end of the work day & we went to the Black Angus for dinner and then off to get groceries for the next week. All in all, it was an OK birthday!




When I got home from work on Wednesday, John said "We got a package from Skittles!" What could it be - we couldn't imagine - Our friends Kathy & Ralph from Sheep Thrills Farm sent us a this cute little ceramic ewe - I have decided to name her Penelope - & she wants to know what all this cold white stuff is? She looks like she'd like to go back to Arizona - but from what I hear, it's not much better down there Penelope - welcome to Marietta Shetlands!

I love your ceramic ewe. Well, I just love sheep. Do stay safe with all that ice and snow.

I have the perfect solution to snow, and they don't call it "a long winters nap" for nothing.

I find I cannot read too far in your blog without getting all choked up. And I do not have the courage at the moment to go back to... well you know.

So for now, I admire your courage and keep on smilin'

My little Baa sheep is standing guard on top of my little stash cabinet, and seems quiet happy there! I think Valentine would be happy to come inside and hang out with me, too. Can you housetrain a sheep?

Tell Penelope that we set new record low temperatures here last night! It was a heat wave a -12 F when we got up, late, this morning.

Skittles is glad you like the little sheep. :)
