Heard Around Here Lately....

Abbie was determined to stay up until midnight Tuesday night and I was determined not to, so about 10 pm I headed off to bed.  Abbie was curled up on the couch with a blanket watching TV and I told her "Happy New Year!"  She told me the same and said,

"Momma, I just have a feeling that 2014 is going to be my year."  

She said it confidently so I asked her what she meant.  She replied she wasn't sure yet, but she knew it was going to be her year.

I hope its the year she finally keeps her room clean on regular basis.

In other news, I have ten 7th and 8th grade boys coming tonight for a video game spend-the-night party.  Yup.

And Annabelle, the goat, is getting huge with her baby.  She is waddling around and it just makes me ache for her.  I put her in the milking stall yesterday to check her out and her udders are getting full of milk and Abbie and I could feel the baby moving.  It was so exciting!  So Mark purchased extra bedding for her yesterday and today I will be getting my emergency kit together.  Although I sooooo hope it is not needed.  Goats are pretty good about delivering without complications, but this is her first so we will see. And of course it is supposed to get down to 10 degrees in the next couple of days.  Mark said it would be just like her to deliver on the coldest day of the decade. 

Who knows, those boys might get quite an education tonight????


  1. You are brave!

    It's -2 here right now.

  2. Can't wait to see what happens in the Year of Abbie! And your world.... So different than mine!

  3. Best wishes with the mama goat!


  4. And, Abbie girl, This WILL be your year! Keep that great attitude!
