The Tractor Project, and Weekend This and That

Our weekend consisted of helping our friend move the new tractor project into his garage, using the prior tractor project (still a work in progress, nearly a year now) to do the work. I love these projects. The guys really get sparked, and I have learned a lot too.

Our friend, Bob, lives in-town, and is the talk of his small town whenever a new "old" tractor is brought in on his trailer.

The rest of our weekend was spent resting in between does kidding. We had a nice set of triplets born yesterday. I have a list of only 4 does left to freshen. Things are starting to wind down on the kidding calendar! It will remain busy for the next couple of months, as long as we have bottle kids, and until the barn and lot begin to clear out again (return to our set numbers).

Today I took a photo of the spring flowers that popped up in front of the house a few days ago. They likely will not survive for long in the wind/snow/sleet and dropping temps that we are experiencing. The photo is a bit blurry, but the colors came out gorgeous. I think the camera was cold too! :)

Oh no, more snow? Good excuse to get indoor stuff done though, maybe make up some more soap and lotion! I love the lotion you tucked into the soap order. I will probably have to buy some. It soothed my very dry, cracked hands. Thanks Mary.

Living in Florida, I cannot imagine you are still having snow! Everything is blooming here now, and my tomatoes already have flowers, some even have tiny green tomatoes! Your flowers are lovely, promising you spring is on the way! You are such a busy lady, I love reading your blog!
