Eeek! It's July!

Well, I kind of wore myself out doing all those posts about the Black Sheep Gathering - I think we had a lot of new visitors to see them - hope some of them will keep coming back.

The Sheep are doing just fine - the "Boyz" are all out in the front pasture - taking all the adoring praise of the neighborhood in stride. They have developed a funny habit lately - & of course when they are doing it, I never have my camera - They KNEEL down to eat. I call it their Cornish Cross chicken routine - (The Shepherd says that Cronish Cross chickens will eat so much that they just fall asleep at their feed trough - this reminds me of that)

Sinda was terrified of all of Mother Nature's fireworks the other night - We had a HUGE thunder and lightening storm at 2:30 in the morning on Thursday. She was practically cowering, poor little thing.

Neelix has an appointment with "Dr. Todd" next week to see how he is responding to the Thyroid medicine that he's been getting. It's turned from a "battle" into a "hide & seek" game to get his meds into him. We have settled on Sheeba cat food as a treat to make up for the indignity of having to take a pill twice a day. In fact, I ran out of Sheeba Thursday night and had to give him my ham lunch meat to make up for it. The looks of recrimination were just too much for me.

I think I'll have The Shepherd bring the PTU (Prisoner Transport Unit) into the house tomorrow so he'll get used to having it around and won't skip out on me.

I've started spinning up some of the beautiful wool that I brought home from Black Sheep. I just couldn't help myself - it was like wanting to get into a new box of chocolates! I took my first two skeins to work and the ladies that I work with all said "Why it look just like yarn!" I think that I'll take that as a compliment...I cannot, however show you what it looks like, because one of my dear readers will be the Christmas recipient of what ever I decide to make with it - and that is even letting the proverbial cat out of the bag.

We are really enjoying the flat of fresh strawberries that The Shepherd brought home from "Small's Gardens" on Thursday. I put 4 packages in the freezer for treats next winter. These are some of the juciest berries we've ever gotten and they hardly needed any sugar.

I'm closing with a "Cold Box Meme" that I borrowed from the pages of my good friend Miss Peach.
It is a fun and simple MEME for the hot summer. "Show us a photo of the front of your Cold Box and tell us about at least one thing on it and one thing you keep inside of it! Tag your friends and remember to stay COOL!"

I love fridge magnets - and as you can see there are a lot of them on our cold box - & pictures of my friend's and relative's children.

I also love quirky cartoons. So there are plenty of those too. I even have a few things around the corner on the sides but I decided that was not necessary to show you.

I prefer not to tag people for Memes - to me that is just like sending a chain e-mail! BUT, if'n it's HOT where you are, play our COOL game and show us what's on YOUR fridge - leave me a note so I can come see!

Oh, and the BEST NEWS! The Mariners just beat Detroit, 3-2! Go M's!

Yay, Mariners!

I hope you're home after church I will try to call. :)

And let me know if there's anything you or TS want from the SW.

Poor Sinda! I hope she's settled down now. And tell Mr. Neelix to bee good so the Dr. can help him. I'm taking the kittens tomorrow for their first shots! Oi! Three-ring circus here we come!

Hah - there's nothing on the front of ours as its not magnetic. The side is another story. It's dirt and grime and all the magnets that won't stick to the front~

I have a few magnets and my granddaughts picture not much. And I forgot to congradulate you on your winning fleece at Black Sheep! I've been talking to Suzie Sizemore and I found out I have Lizzie, from Suzie, who is related to your ram I think. Small word!

A rather prominent magnet on the front of my refrigerator is a miniature drip coffee maker.
For the person who had no room for more small appliances ... :)
