We had an afternoon "off the ranch"...Costco sells the best lemon/ ginger biscuits (cookies) actually they currently sell but apparently an * on the stand means that they will very soon not sell my favourite goody ! I think the staff at the checkout were a little surprised at a trolley ( cart) full of lemon/ginger biscuits, I guess I'm going to have to ration myself and sorry but it's a "no share" treat... they are SO good ! I may have to store them in the safe..but they probably wont last that long !
Little Chance, our bottle fed lamb is growing daily. Three times a day (and sometimes all the time in between !) that little lamb starts to call for her bottle. Chance can yell louder and longer than any of her siblings, she knows just where to position herself to make maximum impact and she does !!! Sadly, Chance is no longer able to snuggle up on my knee, she is just getting too big but it doesn't seem to have occured to her that her front and back legs dangle. More of her hangs off me than I can hold, she is getting big, but she is still a mommys girl.
Gertie the Canadian goose who became enamoured with Quest 2 years ago still pays a visit to the ranch, each morning she and Gustav do a very loud fly over but each visit has turned into an ariel battle with the resident nesting geese. If the eggs are going to hatch, it should be this week, I will update the diary but we are sad to have lost Gertie, she is quite the character and we do miss her in the pasture. Hopefully she and Gustav are doing what geese do best...somewhere else.
Time to go again, the sun is shining, the cuckoo just cuckood and we have a barn full of hungry tummys. Take care, keep well. M
