Monday morning, coffee is ready. One of my neighbors, Chase, has done so much to help me. Several months ago I gave him 2 older ewes, ages 5 and 6. Eve and Lucy, both sired by that black head Dorper ram I had and daughters of Miranda. I have daughters from both and I wanted them to have good homes, as they are big pets. I bred them to Cooper for him. Saturday Lucy had triplets, all healthy. One solid chocolate ewe, one light reddish ewe and one chocolate ram with white legs. The family is thrilled. Eve is due December 17 and will definitely have twins. I also gave them a crooked legged bottle ewe lamb last January. I was going on vacation. I explained how to gently stretch her legs and now she is a beautiful ewe. I showed him how to castrate a ram lamb and when weaned, the wether went to be the little ewes companion, plus he has a chocolate ram born in June. Our joke is that he works for sheep. So now he has 5 ewes and waiting anxiously on Eve!

So awesome about the ewes you gave your neighbor! I had a sweet dorper ewe that had triplets every year!! Mr Potamus would be so excited to tell me, you would think he sired them!😂
I sadly had to leave her behind in California 😞

If Randy isn’t pulling my leg, we should have new stove AND new washer/dryer today. They figured the dryer is about to go out too as nothing lasts around here. Hopefully Fen can get in dryer easily to reach socks, skivvies etc that I can’t. We took Heathen with us when we bought the last one just to male sure, and it was on our dime. The ranch is paying this time. Cody has been bringing
meals everyday for us, which is really unnecessary but so thoughtful. He’s taking over management from his dad, I think. He and his wife and new son have the big 5 bedroom house his grandparents used to live in. He and his identical triplet brother are really great guys.

I still gotta make my own coffee 😂 Hopefully today will be a better day and I’m able to make some 😊

What a beautiful picture. I took up sheep later in life and the dog sheep bond is always a wonder. Thank you for sharing and I hope your appliance wrangle goes well.

I seem to have misplaced an entire afternoon today I wish I had something to show for it except sore feet. :barnie
And I heard a new Southern ? expression.
Dumb enough to be twins. 🤣🤣

Coffee is ready! I’m out of cream, been trying to tough it out for over a week. I drank black coffee most of my life, then derailed onto cream in my coffee. This morning I put milk in my coffee and maple syrup. It’s good, but it’s not cream. And that was the last of the milk. Guess I’m gonna have to break down and go to the store.

Morning all!
I'm making today a day for pampering (Mani/Pedi) myself seeing how the next few weeks leading up to Christmas is going to be mighty mighty busy for FH and I beginning tomorrow night (employer Holiday Party). The other day I sent that stack out and still have a few more Save the Date cards to go out then they'll be done and next thing have to work on is getting the invites/RSVP cards ordered and mailed out but I was smart kept the list of addresses so it will be easier when it's time for invites and RSVP cards to go out.

Howdy all! It's like kinda warm here, not freezing exactly, and the grass isn't moving as much as normal this week. Typical stuff happening here, busy as always, and trying to get ready to visit my grandparents this weekend and run an ultra marathon.
Y'all have a blessed day.

Are you doing only paper RSVP, or also online ones?

And, are you doing any of the online wedding page stuff? As in, a web page with all of your wedding info on it.

Just paper.
My FH and I do have a couple online wedding places but that's so mostly we stay on course with the planning and getting ideas for vendors but other than that I didn't do any wedding websites.
We do have a wedding registry listed for Walmart and Amazon (if I can ever get it to work that is).
I attached a pic of the Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream I made a couple weeks ago and I don't have an Ice Cream Maker machine EITHER!!!!
