It's been a busy month...

We drove to Manchester NH on the 20th for the Diva's pageant....she brought home her first "big" crown and the title of Ultimate Grand Supreme Natural. Now she wants to hit every pageant on the eastern seaboard. Help me.

The Major tilled yesterday while I mowed the lawn that was quickly becoming a jungle. Now we just need to build our raised or heaped beds and we'll be ready to plant.

I really need to paint the barn this summer....We'll be adding a roof above those doors and putting a gravel pad under it so that this winter they have an outdoor space they can use and maybe we can keep the barn cleaner by only utilizing it for lambing or first aid. We'll see how it works out though.

Yoko and Yakov...look at Yoko's little knee patches..they're brown with black edges. I still am not sure what to categorize her color as....I know she carries two copies of the gray gene...but I can't tell if shes moorit (brown) or black with lots of phaelomine.

I have never seen this tree this flowered out....gorgeous isn't it?

I have fencing to do today before the T storms hit...then it will be all inside stuff that has been being neglected because of the sunshine and nice weather. When I went to the Dr. they tested my vitamin D levels...they like to see them up between 60-80. Mine was 23...and I had been IN the sun prior to the test. I don't even want to know what it was in January! So, they gave me a script for vitamin D...50,000 units to be taken once a week. I already feel better..the aches are gone, I have more energy, I'm sleeping better. Who knew one little vitamin could do so much.

That tree is awesome!! That's a big'll get so much out of it. You'll be very busy!

Congrats to the girl...God help you! LOL :)

I bet I'm low in iron (as I have been before) and why I run out of energy. Maybe someday I'll go to the doctor. Glad you are feeling better.

I thought of you yesterday while we were shoveling out poopy straw from the fowl hut (we had the chickens in a tractor for a while, but were moving them back to their "area" now that the grass has grown back), and I wondered again how you manage to keep up with your HUGE farm and all your animals???! I was wiped after cleaning out one lousy hut. :}

Very pretty tattoos, BTW!

I'm taking vitamin D too, but I should get myself tested because I'm tired all the time still.
