MEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE FAMILY

I was in the barn caring for my calves when I got the call early this morning that Willow had arrived... Here is my little great granddaughter Willow. Everything went well and fast. She is always hungry and is nursing well from the get go and dad had the honour of changing her first dirty diaper.  And not long after she was sucking her thumb and wanted to nurse again.

After nursing again, Willow wanted a nap. 



Cypress is having a little cuddle with mom while little sister is sleeping in the basinet.

Thanks for stopping by for a little visit. It always make me happy to know that you cared enough to leave a comment. Have a great weekend.

FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES


I've been very lazy about blogging like so many.  It's all Google's fault with their annoying drop bar warning that Chrome will no longer support my computer.  I've been concerned  for a while  but I've been ignoring it and I think I'll keep ignoring their plea to upgrade. I'm certainly not upgrading to Window 10.
Anyone else are having this annoying drop bar warning on their computer?

Here are some pictures of our long time friends the eagles who live in our lane.  I took these pictures on January 26th  from my back deck with a zoom lens.










This is not to tease those who don't have snow, it's just to let you know that I had enough of the cold and belly high snow. This is a view from the back door. I can barely see my gazebo in the background. I'm longing for green grass and colorful and fragrant flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies. 
Our second storm didn't seemed as bad as they predicted so I'm happy about that.
Stay warm and safe.
