golly gee...

its been a week since my last post...

I have been in a Nyquil coma for about the last week...


it seems that whatever Craig has, I have, too...
just a head and chest cold thingy bug...

without the Nyquil, I cough, sneeze and blow my nose constantly...
with it...

well, pretty much sleep the time away...
when I am up, I cannot function...
but its more comfortable...
and we have gotten some snow and colder days, too...
my guy has taken me for a ride a couple of times after work to get me out of the house...
10-15 minutes is enough for me...
and the van is already warmed up and ready to go...
so I am not getting chilled getting out...

everything here has been about the same...
the babies are opening their eyes now...

I do need prayers for a friend who might have had a stroke this morning...
her name is Carol and such a sweet, wonderful person...
they transferred her to another hospital and they have started their tests to see what's going on...
she is a bit older, so it could be anything...
healthy as can be up until now...

hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely weather...

the road not taken...

from our ride on Sunday...

I am having a couple of not so good days here...

the weather is bouncing around so much, my body can't keep up...

can you believe that this was our first time down this country road?

we are going to start taking more roads like this in the spring...

roads full of wonderful beauty...

working away here on my physical therapy...
gotta be ready when the real spring shows up...

Craig is a bit better...
but has days to go with this...

I have been up most of the night with  my shoulder and arm...
got it down to a dull roar and have eaten breakfast...
so I am going to sneak back to be for awhile...
shhhh...
don't tell anyone...

baby photo shoot...

these were born yesterday afternoon...
when I was at my sickest...

and even with a few problems here and there...

everything is normal now and mama is doing a good job taking care of them...

they weren't very happy with the photo shoot...

and when they voiced their opinion of the whole thing...

and rather loudly, I might add...

mama got her panties in a wad...

and snatched them back...
she was not happy about it at all...
that's a first for me...
;-)
mama's are usually grateful for a mini break...

I need prayers for Craig...
he came home an hour early last night so sick...
he's been juiced, fed and pilled...
and now he's back in bed...

he caught this really nasty head cold thing going around at work...
they have been dropping like flies the last 10 days or so...
and now its his turn...
praying we don't end up with it, too...
he looks miserable...
have good days!

he saw his shadow...

I don't have an image of a groundhog, but I did shoot a beaver last weekend...
do you see him?

a baby one...

so, now they say spring will be early...
and Easter is in March this year...

you won't hear me complain one bit if that happens...
;0)

cloudy with rain today here on the prairie...

but still warm...

the biggest news from yesterday is that we have 4 new babies...
and she had some problems, but all 5 are doing just fine now...
I  will shoot them later today...
and post on them tomorrow...
so that means you have to come back...
;0)
if you want to see them...

have good days, whatever you have going on...
and if its not going the way you want it to...
don't give up...
better days are coming...
they just can't all be good days...
hold on, stay the course...
and it will pay off...
;0)
promise...
the greatest accomplishments don't happen overnight...
but they do happen...
and while you are on your way to the big thing...
SEE the little things...
because they add up...
to the big one...

Happy February...

another winter month, come and gone...
and it was a really nice weekend here in the 50s...

perfect for country drives and hanging out the window...

with the heat on full blast, of course...

yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my sister in law's passing...

so I spent last evening on the phone with my niece...
just letting her know that we are here anytime she needs to talk...

and she was doing fine...
;0)

and it was nice to just talk about all the things we never seem to have time to talk about anymore...
oh, we talk...
everyday...

but not so much on the phone anymore...
we do it mostly on facebook...
and we comment here and there and pm when something's up...
but its still not the same as picking up the phone and saying...
hey, what cha doing?
so, today, I am recommending that everyone pick up the phone...
and dial someone...
not pm, not text, not email...
DIAL a number...
and see what happens...
because you can hear things in someone's voice that you cannot read in a line or two...
and reconnect...
with someone who is on the other end...
;0)
have great weeks!
