I went Ice Skating this morning!

I had not planned on it, but all the rain we had mixed with some snow and ta da, slick steps and walk. Not only that but the roads were coated also, I found that out when I went onto the pavement from the gravel and tried to shift gears. All in all an exciting drive to town first thing in the morning. The utility company called and told me they had some empty spools I could have. When I went in to pay my bill earlier in the week I asked if they ever had any empty ones and how do you get them. I want to make a playground for the goats and these spools will be wonderful for them to jump on. There is a house we go past now and then that has all kinds of ramps and bridges for their goats, I don't think we are going to get that wild.

The weather is all over the map, we actually had some warm weather the first part of last week. From Thursday on it has been awlful, rain, high winds, cold, snow, yuck. I was wishing that my plants were coming up, now I am glad they didn't they would have frozen. Hopefully this is the last of the really cold and Spring can make an entrance.

This is Elvira and her cat, he took up residense in our barn over the winter and when ever Elvira and I go out to walk around he joins us. He rubs all over her and she gives him kisses and they chase each other around. I keep thinking I will take him in and get him fixed, but not sure if I can claim him as mine. He disappears now and then but always comes back, so would not want someone to get upset with me for "fixing" their cat.

I was wondering about you! I haven't been very good about posting lately, either. That cat looks like a cat who lives next door to me who really likes my poodle. Actually, they seem to like to play together. Beau doesn't want anything to do with his own three cats, though!

Hi Barbara,

Oh, I bet that ice skating experience was a bit scary! Love the picture of the kitty and your beautiful Elvira. I do hope Spring makes an entrance soon in your neck of the woods, and stays around as well. We have had a beautiful Spring, although a wet one. Everything is green and flowers blooming everywhere. I even started my garden, although we are to have a chilly Sunday. Have to put on some warmer clothes for church this morning, but it will be in the 70s again the rest of the week.

Have a lovely day and a wonderful week.

Just wanted to drop in and say a quick hi. Take care and hope you and yours have a blessed day.

And I thought you meant that you really went ice skating. Wow, you're sumpthin' else! The goat playground sounds like a lot of fun. I'll bet they'll be thrilled with it!

Wow.... What a good goat mama you are. A playground should keep your kids entertained.

We have a stray cat that makes the rounds just about everyday. I have been putting scraps out for him during the cold weather. Wouldn't that be something if you had your cat fixed and he belonged someplace else. I got a visual on that one and had a good laugh.

Hope your spring time comes soon.... Hope ours does too.
