New month; new look; no news

What can I say? I'm not really in a "pink" mood, but couldn't find a template I liked better.

No news around here - yet. Still waiting to see if that special "face" will become a part of my life. My MIL arrives tomorrow night for a visit. I've been too busy with homeschooling to start a new fiber on the wheel or do much knitting - or anything else! And today I learned that my husband has had a little "problem" for awhile and scheduled a doctor's appointment for Monday to check it out. Maybe I picked a pink template because I'm subconsciously willing that my husband will be declared "in the pink," with nothing to worry about....

The sheep have been rather obnoxious lately. The two ewe lambs are still in "lock-down" and unhappy about it. Browning has decided that he'd rather be on his own than be in with Braveheart and his two ladies - and those ladies aren't too sure they want to be with Braveheart, either. Yesterday, for the very first time, Blackberry seemed to be taking an interest in Dinah even though she was playing hard to get. End of February/early March lambs from her would be great!

No word from the owner of the local poll-carrying ewe on whether she's willing to sell or trade, and I'm still awaiting micron test results on the lambs.

The weather is decidedly cooler; 'tis the season for polarfleece and hot drinks and wood fires (if we had any wood). I am definitely "in a mood," and trying to slog through until it passes. It would be nice to have a few loose ends tied up (in the way I am hoping) like the lacing on the template!

That's it for now from . . .

I sure hope Rick's OK.

And my sheep have been acting up as well. I think it's the season and change in temperatures - last night we were below 22 F here and everyone was bounding around as I was breaking ice on everyone's water.

Keep in touch!

Where do you get your lovely templates....I smile everytime I see them...whether you're in the pink or not...you make me smile, Michelle! Thank you...

Donna, there are three places I've looked at and two that I've used for free templates. The current one comes from "Delightful Dots;" you can click on their logo in the upper left corner of my blog. The other site I like is www.cutestblogontheblock.com, but unfortunately that website isn't working most of the time I try to access it.

I like the template! It's fun to have a change, like moving the furniture around - something my mother did on a regular basis! Not me, though - if I finally get things the way I want them, they stay. My daughter has inherited the furniture moving gene from her grandmother, though.

Sounds like you're really busy - and the sheep want to make sure you stay busy! Good luck with their shenanigans.

Hope for the best with hubby and he's positively rosy with health!! The horses are full of vim and vigor too with the cold snap here. Seems like manners take a holiday at times. All we need is a good stiff wind to get everyone prancing around, including the goats.

Hope Rick is OK. We are finishing up a whole bunch of stuff around here, too. Still thinking about your secret. There's a lot to be done before we hibernate.
