In which I begin to welcome signs of summer

The weather out my window... The first day it really felt like summer!
 
I am thinking... The camera is acting up again. . . =(
 
What today held... Hmm . . .  I sorted through and connected the greenhouse hoses, we put in a large part of the outdoor garden fence, went on a walk down to the pond with the girls and saw a nest of newborn robin chicks, Dolly had her kids - a boy and a girl, Tess Hahn dropped by for a visit, I made jam for the month, and I don't know what else!  A sunny, busy day.
 
I am wearing... A jean skirt, purple tee, apron, and a twisted bun
 
I am feeling... rather tired, cool, and a little reminiscent 
 
I am thankful... That Dolly's delivery went so well!
 
One of my favorite things... The miracle of a birth
 
I am reading... Judges, The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel, The Screwtape Letters, and Sergeant York
 
In the kitchen... is a bouquet of fresh tulips
 
I am so blessed... to be in the family of God
 
I am creating... An incessant gush of sound on the piano
 
I am wishing... I had a little shiny-red '53 Chevy pickup truck<3
 
I am hearing... The girls outside playing in the dusk
 
A truth I am pondering... God doesn't have any grandchildren!
 
Random thought... Is it Little Red Sliding-Wood, or Little Red Slippery Wood-Hood? (Inside joke, people=)
 
Favorite Photos...
 
 
Just a few hours old
 
 
Doesn't he look like a wee little burro?
 
Molly or Madeline - which shall it be?

What darling kids!  I love the pic with Lilly:)  What a lovely smile.
For some reason kids look much sturdier at a few hours old than lambs do...maybe because they have more hair?  idk
Did you get to watch Dolly giving birth?  I still haven't seen any of my sheep giving birth - I always miss it by seconds.  Maybe someday...

Perhaps they just are sturdier. . .I don't know, either:)
 
No, we just missed it by seconds, too - Ellen walked by the goats on her way to the greenhouse to get something, and when she came back, there they were!  Everything went perfectly.  I did see most of our ewes give birth, though - and it's pretty special to watch.

Oh!  I want one!  I think you should enter the picture of Lilly with kid in the fair.  Love you!
