Actually I know that a few of you have noticed that it's been, ahem, more than a week since Mummy last let you know what was going on here at the farm - she mumbles something about being busy at The Salt Mine and other things for Church and that, but, I know it is just because she's been proCATstinating - what do YOU think?
Anyhow, I was just up on the barn roof taking in some rays, watching Sherlock as he investigates "The Case of the Broken Pot"
It's nice that all the little plants are tucked away we have a runway to chase each other down and around.
What kind of a dasterdly deed was this?
Oh, George, The Shepherd said that he thinks that the dirt around the little plant in the pot froze and expanded, causing the pot to break. He was pretty disappointed because it was a sweet little pot too, but that happens sometimes.
Mummy and The Shepherd went to the home of some friends from church for Thanksgiving this year. Their Thanksgiving dinner was highlighted by the three 20 something cousins that were at the dinner -(children of our hostess and her siblings) delightful "kids" - personable, engaging and entertaining - and such good friends to each other -
It was really fun to watch - and to know that our world will be in their hands suddenly made me feel a little better... One is a brand new middle school teacher, one is a software engineer for Intel and the other is getting his Doctorate in Music at Indiana University - yup, we're in good hands....
Mummy was in charge of dessert, and of course she took pumpkin pie from The Shepherd's own pumpkins. It was declared "The Best Pumpkin Pie, Ever" He, he, he...
Gracie is ignoring you Mummy - you know how she likes those 'pensive profile looks'
Anyhow, the other big news around here is that Mummy is goin' "under the knife" next week. She is having CATaract surgery on her eyes.
Now, I've looked at her many, many times, and I've never seen CATs in her eyes - but she said it was really cloudy lenses that they were going to remove. She has gone to this eye doc for a LONG time - way before she met The Shepherd. She had a meeting with him last week - she called it a Pre-Op... and he said that this is normally a pretty simple surgery, but he "expressed some concern" about the shape of her eyeball and was worried about potential damage to her eye (probably from trying to get that CAT out of there...) Anyhow, she told me to ask you all, when you're sitting having your first cup of coffee on Thursday morning (or what ever you drink in the morning), to think good thoughts about her eye doc and see him having a successful surgery on her eye.
That's about all I've got to say - Hopefully we'll be back next week with good news about Mummy's surgery. After all, we need her opposable thumbs to do this blogging thing.
