Yeesh! It's crazy-making... and so sweet.... An excitement and anticipation that is only felt but a few times in a lifetime. Mmmm... moments and feelings to treasure.
Some images of things keeping me busy as I wait for this new little one to arrive....
|Our area was rocked by a snow and ice storm that required some extra critter care and some major clean-up efforts.|
The bees did just fine!
|Everything was coated in at least an inch of ice.|
|Our local wildlife got a little extra help as well. |
The thrushes were very happy for the bird seed we threw down for them.
|Many, many trees and branches were lost.|
These are the branches of our beloved almond tree that was eventually lost.
|Many hours have been spent at the wheel... yay!|
And, I discovered a love of Shetland fiber.
|Woodstoves are the best thing ever.|
|Knitting, knitting, knitting....|
|The storm was followed by at least a week of beautiful sunny weather and warmth.|
The bees have been ever so busy, out looking for early forage.
|This handsome fella has also been loving the sunshine and warmth.|
|Hours, upon hours, upon hours have been spent rubbing this ever growing belly.|
|And beautiful sunrises have been such a gift!|
