I can’t believe that it is March already! I had a great first week working with my weaving mentor, and had a great weekend with our grandson. We did fun stuff like make pizza dough, (I made red sauce), we read some Harry Potter, and he played lots of games.
I am needing to get more organized for kidding, which should begin late in the week of the 19th. A friend of ours had lambs two days ago and it has gotten me very excited about our impending babies. It is the perfect time to give the pregnant does their Bo-Se shots (Selenium and Vitamin E), and I will be giving CD&T shots to each of them according to their due dates (3 weeks ahead, to make sure their babies have some immunities, particularly the Tetanus piece). Since we live in a selenium-poor area of the country, the Bo-Se is very important and a few years ago I had begun boostering this twice a year in the moms. I hope it’s making a difference. We have not had any problems that I can ascribe to a lack of selenium, so hopefully it has.
And so it goes. Our little Tesser the Chihuahua is chugging along, getting very close to her 16th birthday. She is doing well for her age and her size, and loves her little cat bed tunnel and her heating pad in front of the wood stove.
I can hardly wait for next weekend when we get Daylight Savings time back :*)
