Horning in!

This little, big guy is more of a pet, than our next steak dinner.   We weren't really sure if we were going to butcher him or make him into a ox/pet.   He is over two years old and he really hasn't gotten that big.   We can pretty much touch him anywhere; he loves his ears and neck scratched.

Not much happening on the farm.  The guys have finished the big garage doors, that they have been in the process of building for a friend.  All that is left is to get the hardware to hang them up with.  That will be this weekends project.  You should've seen the four of us loading those suckers onto the truck!  They weighed a ton.  Then we had to go and unload them at the guys place, too!

Still working on the blankets.  I have one done and working on finishing the other one.  Then, I will be working on weaving a couple of shawls.  I will probably be doing book work for the next couple of weeks. (after this week that is)

Next week is the big 50 for me.  The hubby and I are going to take the weekend off and go away.   We are headed to Vermont and where ever our fancy takes us.  That is if the weather cooperates!  The east is getting a lot of snow this week.  Hopefully by next week things will calm down.

Hope you have a great week.

Glad you didn't get that big dump of snow! It's tough having birthdays in the winter, not much exciting to do. I never had birthday parties when I was little. Hope you get to do something fun!
