Gloomy, Rainy Day

It's actually nice down in town.  I came home early because there was plenty of coverage for the student teacher b-ball game, and I still feel peaky.  The bug is definitely going around at school.

I was a bit worried about the new lamb last night - we let them out to pasture with their mom and when everyone came running in for their evening meal, she was wandering around from sheep to sheep looking for her mom.  When she searched for an udder on Elvis, I knew she was confused (so was he).  Her grandma, Audrey, was kind about shoo-ing her away, but Dodie just butts her.  Just in case, I bought some milk replacer, but when I got home today, she was mastering the flock and keeping with mom well and she no longer looks skinny.  Phew.

I thought I would update everyone on the lambs, but I really am feeling bad - going to take a nap before I have to drive down to get the kids.  We have an extra couple of kids tonight.  There is no school tomorrow, so that people can set up for the annual big fundraiser, so some friends will be coming over.  I guess I should start the pizza dough now.  Another kid is still here from last night (college classes are over - finals next week), so that makes three extra plates for dinner - every one likes pizza, though. Maybe the 11 year old can make the dough like she did last week so I can sleep some more.

I'm sorry you are under the weather. I've been fighting a cold and today I'm feeling much better. So I hope your icky's go away fast.
I'm glad your lambs are doing well. I laughed when I read she was trying to search for an udder on Elvis. lol

Elvis looked more confused than she did - or more shocked, anyway. It was pretty funny....

Glad to hear your lamb is doing well! I always worried about the lambs while I at work, it can drive a person crazy :)

It can drive a person's husband crazy, too, when she keeps calling home to see if they're okay!
