My friends...

I know I say it, but boy I cant say it enough! I LOVE my bloggy friends!! I got 2 packages in the mail a few days ago and was in Heaven..... I won a gift box from Karen D at Fresh Fixins, kiss your hubby for me for that Karen - I love that man. He helped me to win CHOCOLATE! among some other DARLING stuff. Here is a picture of the loot...

She sent me a darling tea pot that looks like a purse - FILLED WITH CHOCOLATE. She sent a chocolate bar, 3 hand made dish cloths that I LOVE! An Amish cookbook and I have already used it. And a movie that I have seen parts of but NEVER the whole thing - Fidler on the roof! THANK YOU!! I love this little box of treasures and today we are all going to sit down and watch this movie! (anyone want to pay the bill in front of my computer?)

Also, Peggy from Hidden Haven sent me a pay it forward gift box! I got lotion, soap and body wash all made from her goats milk.. Kiss the girls for me Peggy would ya, I LOVE THIS STUFF!! I dont do a lot of girly stuff in this house so this will help me fell like a woman again, for at least 47 seconds!!! And shortly, I will be having a pay it forward also, but it will have to wait for a week because my work has turned into full time for the next 2 weeks.. *head hit desk*



So, once again I am being blessed by you guys... a true blessing. Thank you....


NOW! here is a picture of Milk Dud eating a piece of red licorice - I think you all know he likes food.













And here we have some of our farm friends..... Would you like to be a kitty pillow...
Soooooooo sleepy....
I love my calf friend - until he steps on me.... but till then....zzzzzzz

Please excuse the calf in the front of Murple - she had just came from a differant pen. She was not feeling the best, she had the 'back door trots' so to speak... She was in need of some extra care. They get a little wonky sometimes and we have to seperate them for some tlc.

This cat is an idiot. Its a tom with the distinquished name of 'The other Tom'. This name comes from not being Elvis or Tommy Big Foots..... He is The other Tom - kind of like my brother Larry and my other brother Larry.... get it? Got it? good....

Well, it SNOWED here last night - it was 47 and sunny yesterday and today we have 3 inches and counting.......I will get some pictures before its gone. It is pretty and knowing that spring is really just around the corner is a nice thought. Talk to you later!

Heidi, what a wonderful surprise and treat for you. Enjoy it all! And as for Milk Dud, my heart just races and I can't get close enough for a squeeze. Just wait--July....

Mrs Mom said...

Oooo GOATS MILK PRODUCTS!! Oh Heidi!!! ENJOY THEM!!! I used to use some, when I could find it, and Lordy I miss that lotion.

That is some cute kitty you got there too, cuddling that calf!!

And Milk Dud... that child is so sweet I felt my blood sugar go through the roof just looking at him!!! Squeeze and sugar him from his long distance Auntie here please!!! (And the rest of the crew, of course!!)

Oh I love my blog friends too. I get so many great things in the mail. I am so glad I ventured down this blog road. ((hugs)) Lov little Milkdud! He is getting so big! And that cat? too funny, he must be waiting for milk.

Goats milk soap and lotions are wonderful. That BABY is so cute!!!
So why is the cat stupid? i love orange and white cats, some of them have been my best pets.
Glad you liked the chocolate. The movie may not be anything the guys will go for, lots of music and dancing, it's probably a chick flick. I really love it though. We watched it recently and enjoyed it so much that's why I picked it. But I can't really see Big Son, Lispy, and the Milkman hanging for a flick of that length!

Heide said...

What sweet baby pictures of Milk Dud. He's really growing fast. The calf/cat pictures are sweet. Make sure and lock the bathroom door before indulging with the girly stuff (saying that with a chuckle because I NEVER have an uninterrupted bath). I hope work goes quickly for you.

Heidi said...

Karen, Milk Man is a strange thing... He likes things like this and so does BIG SON!! He is gonna love it.

LDF said...

Wonderful pictures, Heidi! That baby has sure grown ... and CRAWLING now. I cried when my #4 started crawling. She was such a handful! Wish I'd had nice bloggy friends to lift my spirits back then, but we didn't know what computers were then, never mind blogs!

Greenmare said...

murple - that's funnt.

We just got rid of the snow ourselves yesterday. Here's hoping the sun comes out and the wind dies down so I can paint!

How lucky are you with your little Presents? I am a little envious of your dishcloths. I really love those. They are the best. I seem to have the need for some cotton dish towels myself. I saw that my mom had an old embroidery pattern for a flapper lady smoking a cig. I figured that would be a fun dish towel decor and it would teach my kids so much about smoking ;)

And the whole reason I replied to your post? Kitty story. My sister used to have a barn cat that had kittens. Of course the kids wanted to mess with the kittens all the time, so when referring to the cat, my sister would say "whatchacamefer." It ended up being that old cat's name till the day she died.

Your baby is fast growing up, Dear Friend!

And if I were a cat, sleeping on a warm calf with be wonderful, esp. with the snow falling outside.
