MINNIE-HESTER AND MARLEY-THE WARM UP-CELTIC BOOK OF DAYS

21 02 2014

HELLO,

While I was out in the back yesterday I spotted this on my neighbors chimney.  IMG_2417

UPDATE ON MINNIE

Minnie has her ups and downs she has put on a little weight but not much.  SHe is more trusting of me and often sleeps right next to me.  SHe is very afraid of a soda can opening.  Her past does creep in sometimes.  She seems happy and will be due soon for another check up.  I hope that we can do something about her kidney disease.

Hester

She is doing well, eating well but not walking.  She is standing for a time each day.  I do think a vet visit is called for  I doubt if she will ever be able to be with the flock again and I really don’t think she cares.  She loves all the attention.  

Marley

Marley managed to take off his mask, he has not changed.  We are working around him cleaning the barn and he still may be separated from the rest of the flock, time will tell.  His problems are not his fault they are the fault of people.

Chris and I spent some of yesterday digging trenches to divert water from coming into the barn

.  There is quite a lot of snow on that mountain and it will be trickling down with the warmer weather that is now upon us

IMG_2415   I think we will see people making Maple Syrup this week.  I know if I was doing that this year I would be tapping the trees today.   Warm days and cold nights are expected through Sunday.  I am going to get my evaporator out of the garage this year and  make maple syrup next spring.

THE CELTIC BOOK OF DAYS

By Caitlin Matthews   A Guide to Celtic Spiritually & Wisdom

I bought this book many years ago.  It is a wealth of information on Celtic customs and wonderful drawings.  You never know what each days reading will bring.  Yesterdays was birth customs in the west of Scotland.  Very interesting, today was an Irish riddle.  Each day holds new information about Celtic life.  I bet you can still find this book  on Amazon.

Oh Where Oh where is my dryer vent

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Carole
