January 12, 2013...awaiting the cold blast

Everyone had a chance to spend time in the sun yesterday and today I am winterizing...cleaning out and dropping the north door. Princess, Tempra's abandoned lamb from year before last?? is ready to have her first lamb anytime. This is a ewe lamb that Mom and I bottle fed. The last one that Mom was able to help me with before she broke her hip. Mom would hold her for hours and watch TV and carry her out with the dogs and walk with her in the front yard. She got pretty spoiled...the lamb that is...Mom has always been spoiled..lol. Then when Princess got a bit too large to handle a friend offered to help...so on my work days I would drop her off with Michelle...who quote "I am not going to hold that lamb"...but sort of succumbed to Princess who insisted on crawling in her lap when she sat on the ground...and followed her everywhere as she gardened. Lambs are insidiously charming. Anyway...Princess is due and so is Diamond Lil...both first timers so I will have to watch them. Patches should not be a problem since she has a number of lambs to her credit.
I had my breakfast at 6 when feeding the house dogs and keeping Cheer out of Bubbles food...always multitasking.
