Saturday Ramblings

one of the 2 baby shower gifts half experimenting with a blanket as the yarn I have does not seem to be working with any of my ususal favorite patterns..the yarn I ordered online for the second gift will probably arrive Monday, so I really want to finish the first gift over the weekend.

another new calf this morning--so the guys are busy with it, assuring themselves it'll be ok and all. Love baby calves!

We've been enjoying season 9 of Murder She Wrote on glad we're able to get and play those. Angela Lansbury is such a lovely talented actress and that was such a great show.

David's seedlings are growing..he's requested a rack to keep his seed starter trays on..guess he's tiring of moving them morning and night as he switches use of the different pieces of furniture in his room. I think I will try to find him one of those "bakers' racks" or a display rack from some now defunct store.

My hens are hinting that it may soon be egg-laying time! I always find them laying right after I've bought eggs in the store, lol--should I run to the store and buy a couple cartons? Murphy's Law reigns here.

wishing everyone a pleasant and blessed day.

wind and rain...and mud

our weather today reminds me of the movie The Longest Day, and the soldier who says, "wind and rain, wind and rain..."muddy mess.

on a knitting front, I've completed 16 squares for a group loveghan, and am in the midst of gifts for 2 cyber baby showers...have a cardi knit awaiting assembly
