“If enough people think of a thing and work hard enough at it, I guess it’s pretty nearly bound to happen, wind and weather permitting.”
– Laura Ingalls Wilder
Blessed again this week with some decent rain. The liquid sunshine rode in on a low front bringing with it chilly temperatures, some hail and snow to our local mountains. Hope our Eastern readers who live in the path of the unseasonal and devastating tornadoes are safe and OK.
After a dreary and chilly few days, Blackberry soaks up the sunshine. She meditates and ponders the world’s greatest issues … peace in the middle-east, climate change, the future of our world… and if we’ll be saving her any bday cake.
There were rumors circulating on Facebook that it was so cold that Blackberry had to wear a sweater. This rumor happens to be true! Because of the warm winter, the goatsies were shedding their warm wintery undercoat early this year. Whilst I was out in the animal compound feeding the animals, I noticed that Blackberry was shaking, so I went in and got her a second-hand red sweater.
For those who are keeping track, it was Blackberry’s bday this week. She’s 5 years old and she gives her (“maaaaa”) regards to all those who wished her a happy one!
Next week stay tuned for what NatGeo channel didn’t show, February Harvest Tally, Vegetable Planner Giveaway winners and another chance to win!
