The day is dawning rather damp and dull this morning but I am sure once the house wakes up that the "dull" part will quickly disappear.
Being as there is no television reception here unless you can afford one of those fancy satellite dishes the grandchildren have to come up with things to do out of their imaginations. Well never fear this bunch has enough imagination for an army of grandchildren ~~there has been time spent sledding on a steep side hill~~man-tracking~~and cops and robbers with robbers being accused of such offenses as stealing underwear off clotheslines, being busted for a "fart-monster",and numerous other serious offenses. hehe. Food has been eaten at every possible waking hour of the day. Boots & felts, snowpants, jackets, gloves, jeans, socks all in various stages of sogginess and believe it or not there has been no moose or coyotes in the vicinity since the arrival of our mighty little hunters. That is okay though as they have spent much time target practising and so there are some very shot up teddy bear types on the place.
Children are now coming to life and I have managed to clean up some kitty cat vomit so I guess the day is off to a roar!
The grampa is still in bed ~~how does he do that?? It is almost 7 a.m. LOL
I have birthday gifts to wrap up for our little grand-daughter turning four years old today! Time really does fly by.
Everyone is going home this afternoon. The cats will have to readjust and come out of their hidey holes! haha
I have more bread orders to tend to this week but have to wait for more flour. It is not always that easy for me to run to the corner store. We do have lots of corners but seems no stores are on them! The one store that I worked at in the small village would take close to my year's income to pay for the bag of flour so would rather wait for one of the family members to pick me up one from town and bring it out this way.
After the big Rabbit Rodeo Roundup we had on Friday one of the little scamps has escaped again. I think we are just going to have to dig out the chicken wire and lay it all down on the ground so they can not dig themselves out of the shed. Here is hoping and praying we can build them a nice rabbitry soon. I would like something that they can run around in more so than cages and use the cages only for when some bunny needs isolating for some reason or other. If I could have something where the mamas and babies and papa run in and the females and males that come of age can be separated into runs until butcher time would be my dream come true. We shall see as everything takes time not to mention "ingredients"!
I should run and do a couple things here and then rustle up some grub ~~
Because thy lovingkindness is
better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.
Happy Sunday blessings to you
