Hey and Howdy Yall! Thanks so much for dropping by and visiting with Us on Our Front Porch today. So glad to see You. Hope Your family is doing good and Your week is going great. I know Yall have noticed….that cold winter weather that everyone was wishing for Christmas Day has finally come. At least it came in before the 12 Days of Christmas had ended. We got to see the Christmas lights in the colder air too. Unfortunately We start taking everything down after the 6th. Not looking forward to that but it has to be done. Each year We try to pack everything to make it easier to put back up next Christmas.
Our little chicken eggs are doing well in the incubator. We candled them last Monday to see if they were fertile and I think they all were, so hopefully We will have a good hatch. I have to get the little nursery brooder ready for them. They will stay in that the first 2 weeks and then move to the big brooder Shawn built last spring, at the barn. We are all looking forward to the sweet little biddies getting here.
We also have another arrival coming toward the end of the month. We have a sweet little piglet coming that will eventually grow into Our Brood Sow. The kids are all real excited about Her. This is a picture of Her with Her brothers and sisters. (She is one of the tiny white ones). We haven’t named Her yet, waiting till she gets here and then We can All decided.
Shawn made Me a longer quilting frame. I remembered My Grandma Maola talk about putting hers on the back of her kitchen chairs to quilt. This gave Me the idea and so Shawn cut the wood for Me last weekend. The one I have been using was just a large lap frame. On this new one, I just roll the quilt up as I go and quilt it. This is gonna be good for making repairs on some of Our older quilts too. I already have one to repair on it and gonna try it out this week. It will also be great for Quilting Bee Parties. Maybe We can do some of those these Spring.
We have the fireplace going and the hot coco brewing! Yall stay cozy and warm and come back and visit with Us again this Weekend. ~Love from the Ranch~
