Looking for Spring

Here are some signs it is trying to be Spring but honestly it is awful,miserable cold.
Global warming ... well it has not hit here.

Tonight the sky is lovely lots of stars crystal clear and cold. I had to go to a PAC meeting tonight at my younger kids school and they had no heat it was just awful.

This is what I learned to do over Easter weekend I am just going to go around and around in a big square. This picture does not do the yarn justice it is very pretty it a mixture of soy and wool.
This is the start of my quilt I so do not know what I am doing so I think it will be a slow process.
Today was a full day of property work I cleaned all day and it is so unappreciated all I hear is it is too smokey... instead of saying thanks. So no more cleaning I won't burn I just thought I would get it done before I go to England now I will just enjoy myself and pack my suitcase :)

Mercury getting love or is he trying to bite...
Run Like The Wind is checking out what's happening
Spring time jobs moving rocks
Not sure if I already posted this photo but this what we have been doing
Multi tasking all day raking, burning and I came to the conclusion I would make a horrible fire man... fire scares me. We milked goats, fed goats, looked for goats, did this routine all day over and over.
Tried to do a little sewing and little crocheting and a little house work. My husband and son should be home after mid night some time from Maple Ridge so I will try to stay up and make sure they get home safe.
I have tried since early afternoon to get my fire to light and it refuses to light so it will be a bit chilly tonight.

Looking pretty with Mimzy
Very Bad Goats
Looking for grain
We are finished for awhile our last goat had this afternoon. We have one more for sure but not for a little while then I think Sat. We will get the herd in and check the rest that have not had at this point only have of the herd has been bred so we will have to wait and see.
The goat today was a huge as a cow she was so big my son and I could not flip her to check her and she only had one baby. The bonus to that is she is in good shape. Now the soul searching who do we keep and who do we cull I am so not good at this I think I should be able to keep all of them..
My husband thinks I should have only 1 - 10 he is absolutely no fun unfortunately my dad agrees HMM.... Men. With our babies right now we are at over 70 :)...:)....:0 that makes me smile I know way too many!!!! NOT
We went for a quick trip to Kamloops so the kids could go to Walmart I went to a sewing store. Now we have a hockey tournament in Maple Ridge however I won't go.
Tomorrow I will post a photo of my new crochet trick I am feeling quite pleased with myself.
Well guess what I am not setting the alarm tonight I do not have to get up 3-5 times I am sleeping in until 6 or 7 am. So have a wonderful night sleep good.

Looking for treats

He was so excited check out the shoes. All day he was asking how do other people have Easter does he come on Mon. or Sun. What was my Easter like when I was little. We actually thought Easter Bunny would have to come Monday but we manged it.
The Easter Bunny hid them all over
Eating Hard boiled eggs

It was so cold and miserable. We had to wait for the Easter Bunny until 5pm my husband left him a note so he would come by our house at the end of the day as two of our boys were in hockey tournaments. One came first and the other second and he and another boy won all star for the tournament.
No matter how old they are they still have fun and it is kinda nice to see the older ones pump up the younger ones. This holiday really fills my heart I love Easter and I don't usually like to share my kids with anyone but I am getting better. It is going to be quite hard for me when they all leave home but Ia m getting better every day with the growing up and learning to let go very little each day. As I write this it is snowing blowing really bad and my oldest son is driving home right now so you all may want to remind me I am getting better at letting them grow up...NOT!!!!!!!!

Good Bye

This lovely girl died last night and I have no idea why. She was 9 years old on Valentines day we brought her home at 3 weeks old. She was a very good dog no real bad habits, good with the kids. Her only faults was she was terribly idol and would steal your food for instance when my husband would bend down to tie his shoe and put his cookies on his lunch kit at 2am wrong thing to do or she would steal his lunch again if he tied his shoes... She really seemed Happy she would lay on her back legs in the air and growl while she rolled out her back she truly believed when we put the gravel down it was just for her.
This picture was only a couple of days ago. Rest in piece baby and go find Poppy... I loved you very much

Today was a good day weather wise a cool wind. We had hockey games, a very quick but lovely visit with my niece and her two kids, a quick trip to Kamloops. I was getting anxious to get home I was worrying about the Little brown goat. As soon as we drove in we went straight to the barn and she was just starting to push so went in the house changed our clothes. When we got back to the barn another goat had had a baby and the little brown goat had just a head no legs. I gently pulled on the head she is very small and and found a curled up leg pulled on both of those and got a lovely buck out. So two new buck this evening but it is so damn cold for them the wind chills them fast. So I will head out in about 1/2 hour to put them back with their mom and check the rest. I do hope the rest will hold off until tomorrow. Enjoy your night talk to you all soon.
