A wonderful idea

I have been wandering through blogs today, from fashion to gardening to weddings ( I love the photos) to vintage
and well, this photo was the one I loved best .
To add to the picture I loved the idea! Then I though, oh tiny flags in ice cubes for the Fourth of July,mini plastic eggs for Easter, little ornaments for Christmas, best of all mini rubber duckies for a summer pool party!

A list maker

I think my life has changed as I totally have become a "list maker". When I found this picture online , I went what a great idea. As part of an ad campaign students from a School of Visual Art in New York were assigned places to place notepads.. this was perfect as I so often make my lists while dining out.

What a story! 2 ewes were to give birth day- Kirby goes into the barn- ( both expecting ewes are in the same pen) he sees a baby lamb- black and TINY TINY- ( 4 pounds) both ewes are cleaning up the baby as it has just been born.. Kirby opened the gate to the pen that is called the jug- where you take baby and mother to bond.. he places lamb in pen and mama #1 follows into the pen and immediately is cleaning up the baby and in a sheeps way talking to her baby, Mama #2 pays no attention.
2 1/2 hours later Mama #1 - in jug gives birth to another lamb a 10 pound boy... 20 minutes later another boy - 8 pounds is born to mama#1- then the story gets interesting- Kirby notices Mama #2 has shown signs of having given birth.. well, to make a long story short- MAMA #1 has stolen black baby girl as her own ( we now find out that mama sheep do that) and MAMA # 2- was abandoning her baby ( and we knew that happens sometimes) WHAT A DAY..
mama #1- can she supply enough milk for 3 ?????? We might be doing some supplemtal feeding and what will happen to MAMA#2 whose body thinks she had a baby but no baby is nursing

JUST A TYPICAL DAY in the meadow with the sheep... ( not much else got done today except all of us standing in amazement at this story.
but all are doing well

pictures are attached of the "triplets?" and the 9 day old, Molly and Danny - who are a scream!
I bet you all wished you lived with the Overmans

NIne Phrases Women Use

This ended up in my mailbox from a friend, not sure where she found it but I laughed out loud as I read it!

1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
(3) Nothing:This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint.Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true,unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'. That will bring on a 'whatever').
(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying *&^%$ YOU!
(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times,but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?'For the woman's response refer to # 3.
* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.
* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

The Urban Dictionary defines 'Delovely' as "the only word used to describe your feelings towards a person the exact moment you realize you are forever in love with them".
