got to see benny and joon for the first time last night. i heart johnny! there hasn't been a movie with him in it yet that i haven't liked! my favorite at the moment is once upon a time in mexico. and chocolat. love. and ninth gate...
ok, geeking out over!
sage burnt his hand on the woodstove today. poor guy, it's pretty bad, on three fingers, 2nd degree. he cried a long time. well, at first, he was ok and didn't act too upset so i neglected it thinking it wasn't too bad. then he started crying so i got out our boo-boo bear and once that warmed up, ice wrapped in a gerber diaper. then nursed him to sleep and all is well now. but he has a nasty blister or two. he knows to stay away, i think he must have fallen onto the stove when he was goofing off near it.
jaden is all better now. i've been making sure she poos daily to keep her systems working properly. 4 is a rough age...starting to hate all the foods you've loved up until now. where do they get that from?!
i spent too much time today tethered to the computer trying to get a custom order created. not something i normally do but it was a request for daily to-do sheets for someone i'd been convo-ing for over a month. originally she thought the size she needed was just a smidge smaller than what i made...turned out, it was half the size of what i made so i ended having to create a whole new thing. lots of pages. but, it's all good. i probably made about 50 cents an hour on it but oh well, live and learn! it's done and waiting for her to pay so i can send it on its merry way.
spring equinox is fastly approaching so i've been working on gifts for the kids' treasure hunt we do each year. i purchased a crinkleroots figure for sage and a fairy for jaden from one of my favorite etsy sellers, mamakopp. her wood figures are amazing! she lives about 2 hours away from me but i'll never get to meet her because she's getting ready to pack up the house and move to oregon. my loss. she is a sweet soul. but, hey, we've still got etsy and anyone can buy some of her awesome creations!
i had a dream last night one of my sheep had twins. i'll take that as a sign that i need to get out there daily and start checking on them. i've been watching them and i think the one in my dream was the one i noticed was bagging up udder wise. it's hard to tell if a sheep is pregnant because they have all that wool. especially the ones we didn't get to shear. they are so fluffy anyway, any extra bumps are hidden under all that fleece.
it's been cold here but is promising to warm up. looking forward to it, we have a dozen broilers we still need to butcher. and a goat too. but, i'll be happy to butcher the chickens! tabitha turned me on to building a chicken plucker. i will definitely be looking in to this. since this is my job, i'd be happy to shorten it any way possible!
i got a great suggestion for improving my herbal roots book for kids. please express your opinoin by taking the survey on here to let me know it's a great idea or not...see the side bar!
