The only things popping are the buds

Apparently Blaise's 'boarders' were being rude tenants yesterday, making her very uncomfortable, but she hasn't managed to evict them yet. This morning I turned all the ewes out so I could keep an eye on Blaise from the house, and she grazed with the flock as usual. Oh well, the maternity ward is ready when she – or Vienna – needs it.

Since there are no cute lambies to photograph yet, I walked around this morning taking photos of the fruit trees and other things in bloom. Susan, the first photo is of your favorite prunes-in-the-making. 😉






l got all my cooking and prep done for tomorrow's meal and had time to ride Stella, too. Now I need to measure this skein of yarn spun this month for a Ravelry challenge and figure out what to make with it.

Hope you all have a dandy weekend!

That's it for now from . . .

Well I guess those babies will come when it's the right time! I'm anxious to see them.

Your flower photos are lovely!! I especially like the pink ones.

How do you do on the Ravelry challenges? I've noticed that you've mentioned them before. Are there prizes given? Your yarn is always so beautiful!

I hope all goes well for you and your guests today. I'm anxious to hear all about it.

Jeanne, we may be waiting a few days -- or more. Blaise is back to 'normal' now, so I think those lambs were just moving around a lot on Thursday. The Ravelry challenges I've been participating in have all been on the Jenkins forum. There are sometimes prizes, but it's mostly a friendly community that keeps me spinning. As for the guests, they all said they loved the food and appreciated the efforts to accommodate!

Things are starting to bloom here, too - all the nasty Bradford Pear trees are in bloom (they smell like rotting garbage to me . . . ). Of course we are expecting snow on Tuesday!

I don't like they way they smell, either, A, and I don't think they are the most attractive flowering tree. I wonder why they are so popular?
