I slipped off to the barn like a naughty child this afternoon to see these:
The farmer has been feeding the cats for me and told me about the kittens a few days ago. It's been a little over three weeks since I have done my barn chores and I'm missing out on a lot of changes. I was also bottle feeding a little calf, a twin forsaken by its mother; the farmer feeds her too. A lot of the time when a cow has twins, one will stay behind and one will follow her and she never goes back to get the other.
The other twin with the mother:
Since I'm not supposed to bend over with my head lower than my behind :) I've had to make some changes to my daily inside chores too. For instance, the bedspreads have not been pulled up for almost three weeks; however, I do straighten the sheets and quilts. I sweep, then leave small piles for the farmer to collect in the dustpan; the piles might sit there for a couple of days but he gets around to it before too long. :) I've tried not to ask him to do "everything" for me.
I've crocheted and embroidered to pass the time, so I'll share some of that at another time.
