Annie and Malc went home to England yesterday, they were here for just under 2 weeks...funny how 2 weeks seems like an eternity sometimes and sometimes it's just the blink of an eye. Thats how it is when they are here, we no sooner say "Hi" and it's time to say "bye".We will miss them till they come back. Thank you both for everything.
Well, the rain is coming down, it has been coming down since first light and probably through the night too, I guess we had better get used to it, I believe the forecast is rain all week. Everyone looks very wet and very miserable, the horses are sheltering under the trees, tails into the wind, Charm in particular has perfected the fine art of looking almost suicidal ! Almost all the animals have decided that a little bit of rain is good but there does come a time when wet wet and wetter gets old and since all the fur hair and feathers on the ranch have gone into hiding in their nice warm, dry stalls my guess is they have had enough !
It is almost three weeks since my surgery and Doctor Greg is "allowing" me to do a bit, I do know what the back surgery bible says and I am really trying to be a good patient.....but it's SO hard ! I'm allowed to lift up to 20 lbs .....would somebody please tell me exactly how many poo balls makes up the magic figure. Walking is good....too much walking isn't....how am I supposed to know, and if I decide I've gone too far,..how do I get back, put me in a wheelbarrow ? Sitting, again only for so long ....since my butt hurts all the time, how am I supposed to know it's been parked too long !!!
The lamb nursery is still empty, Gimpy Bandit and Annie are all looking like battleships tottering around on skinny little legs struggling to bear the weight of their unborn lambs. Clearly impending motherhood doesn't affect their appetite so feeding time is no indication of the lambs arrival. Well, the ewes haven't lambed, I've helped Greg this morning, I've stood , I've walked and I've sat...I'm going to go and have a nap. Take care, M
