Welcome to February!
February brings thoughts of love, hearts, and Valentine's Day for many of us. February is the shortest month of the year and I believe that God made it that way because it can be some of the gloomiest days here. It seems that we get most of our cold and snow in February and I am not sure that we could survive a full month. I also believe that it is the springboard into spring.
I know here on the farm we are looking forward to the long daylight hours that February brings as well as knowing that March will bring some warmer weather and brighter days. Some of our cloudy, gloomy days will soon give way to sunshine and brighter days. We are also looking forward to spring and all the new that comes with it. New signs of nature waking up and planning for that awakening.
I am beginning to plan for some new flower beds this spring as well as looking to do some repairs that are truly needed around here. My husband and I are planning another remodel in our home soon and I pray that it goes smoothly and looks as good as we are thinking it will. As far as the farm goes, I don't know that we will be bringing any new animals in this year as it has been a rough winter for us health wise and we are thinking of making some changes in what we truly want to do with the hobby farm.
Of course, I am also anxiously awaiting the days I can get back to the barn and feel and smell my beautiful Sugar, a wonderful horse. I am looking forward to the day that my grand doll can ride again as well. Sugar is such a great horse and so patient with the little ones.
Such memories were made this day! Granddoll and her cousin riding!
We also will celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday this month. How is it possible that the beautiful little girl that was such pleasure to raise can be turning thirty? She was two years old when I met my husband and they became friends before he and I became a couple. Amazing how God worked that out, isn't it?
Happy February to all my blogger friends!!

As I was looking through my posts today, I see that I have failed my readers. Many of you were aware that my other daughter was pregnant and going to deliver in July, I am sure those of you that knew are wondering why I never posted about that and I must say that life has just gotten in the way, and I thought that I had written a post. Since I know I did not, I will now! He came when Mamaw was out of town! Can you believe that? He actually had the nerve to do something so ridiculous as to come while I was at the Pink Zebra reunion (our annual conference). I was with four of my best friends when we got the announcement that he was here! I was so happy that I was able to share that news with them before anyone else. Of course, the leaders of the company were there and anxious to hear how she was doing as well. Deliver went fairly smooth, but she was in labor for quite a while. I am not sure on hours, but I think about 6 hours. There were some issues with my daughter following delivery
Yesterday and today have been very cool days here on the farm and I must say that something that we don't recognize has been falling from the sky. It is wet and seems to be hanging around. IT is certainly what the ground needed as it seems to have soaked it up almost immediately. Rain, glorious rain!! The ducks are loving their pool and the rain, but I truly don't think that they are liking the cooler temperatures so much. I know I am not. I don't mind cool, but wearing my sweatshirt in June is not fun. The white turkeys are enjoying the coop that my husband put together for them. We have 5 of them and two others. We won't be keeping all of the toms as we have too many. Nesting boxes made of milk crates that we had lying around work well attached to the back wall. Here is Tom. He is such a great boy, but he likes to show off. He gets along well with the chickens. These are my Old English chickens. I like them as they are small and will never get much bigger. I actu
Hello! It is Thursday and I am sick again. I have some kind of infection that seems to be attacking multiple places at once. I have a UTI, swollen glands in my neck, and multiple other issues. I feel really bad and I have been sleeping a lot. I am supposed to go to a hockey game tomorrow with my daughter, son -in-law and my oldest granddaughter. I am super excited about going as I have never been to a professional hockey game. I hope to go, but we will see how I feel tomorrow. Antibiotics all day today and drinking water and cranberry juice and I hope I will feel better. I need to be busy planning my daughter's baby shower, but I am just not feeling up to it at this point. I have to get it done before we get so busy that we can't get it planned or worked into the schedule. Summer gets busy with vendor shows and all that comes with that. Well, I will leave you with a thought for today.
