Captain Strong Arms and his Queen's toutings....


This man, Captain StrongArms, has built, and continues to build, the nicest home and property a girl could wish for.

And we have the cutest little boy a man and wife could ever wish for.



There just isn't anything he can't do.



I think I'm in love.  It's good to be Queen.

almost forgot

to tell you that I milked Dory - the first time and got a quart!  An entire QUART!!  

Her and I were learning together - it was a rough first few minutes, but we both got over it.  Good thing we like each other.

The piglets, they LOVE the milk.  Farming is really cool.


I just

want you all to know that I quit drinking coffee creamer.  Yeah.  Seriously.  It was like continuous PMS for a couple weeks straight.  

I'm better now.  I only have the shakes now and again on days that end with Y.

:-p

More useless information.  Hey, it has to go somewhere.

a month of sundays and two calves later

*phew!*

ahem.  uh, where were we?  ah yes.  calves.

here, have a go at this;


The first pictures (horizontally) are of BraveHeart.  The two pictures following are of Flicker.  When they arrived, they were full of energy, curious, and hungry.  We had a couple steep hills to climb, with the stress of transport and some other not-so-glamorous stuff that shall remain un-named, but all-in-all they're both doing great.  Growing, eating grass, knocking me down for their one bottle of milk a day and generally being calves (read:  LAZY!).

I can honestly say that flip flops are not really the desired footwear when one has two calves.  The poop just doesn't come off very well.  

Here's a video of the "Barnyard"

and, we've added a couple kids to our farm as well.

Life is good.  Now if I could just carve out some time to get the garden started.....

What is this leisure time of which you speak?
