Life Is....Good

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”- Marcus Aurelius

And we just had a wonderful weekend which solidified that even more.  On Saturday after the man got home from work, we got a little work done around here.  We caged up the two roosters that made any outside work precarious.  It is hard to get much done while holding a stick and swiveling your head around, to fight off a rooster.  And because I can not drop animals off without coming home with something, we came home with....

any guesses?

#2 daughter calls him Mr.Gobblesome. 

Isn't he just so sexy? 
Well I didn't think so either but Red & Gray did because within five minutes of arriving love was in the air.  Hopefully we will have little turkeys hatching this year.

Sunday, the man and I, had a leisurely start.  We drank coffee, watched Sherlock Holmes and I took a break from bright colors and I managed to finish this sock.
The second one is done to the gusset and should be finished today.  Later Sunday, we went out to dinner with #1 son and his lady fair.  We stopped at Walmart for ice cube trays and came home to the younger two kids. 

They had spent the weekend with their dad.  #2 daughter came home with a serious sunburn and #2 son (who called crying until after 11pm Saturday, thinking I could magically fix it) had them all in the emergency room late that night into early Sunday morning with an ear infection.  This is the first one he has had in years. Tylenol wasn't working and he has ruptured his ear drums so many times he has hearing lose in both ears. Thankfully he is feeling much better. Because no pharmacies were open they gave him enough meds to make it until later today so I have to go fill the prescription now.  After which I have to transplant some more seedlings.  I love Spring.

Good luck with your turkey production line. LOL

I love the socks. That yarn is really lovely. All colors that make me smile, and so nicely put together too. :)
