What a great time to be a vikings fan!

Lol, I haven't watched football in years, Lawrence really never has but this year has brought us back to watching football. It's been exciting to see the Vikings do well so far this year. I will admit this past weekends game was almost a dissapointment, but we managed to win at the last few seconds, I'm thinking that there will be alot of review on the teams part about how the game played out.

Monday was Lawrence's birthday and he received a fabulous coat from our good friend and number 1 Viking fan.

Animals are in an exceptional mood right now with the bull and horses playing tag while the calves are running around and kicking up their heels.

SNOW!!!!!, & big head 1, nose 0

AAAAAgh, woke up this morning to a light dusting of snow on the ground. Lawrence states that he can't remember the last time it snowed before his birthday. It's now overcast and looks ( and feels) like the snow may stick around for at least a few hours.

Big head 1, nose 0 yep that's right. My nose lost in the encounter with Tomas's head. He stepped on his lead rope and got startled swung that big ole head up and smacked me right in the face. I had to look several times before I admitted that yes, my nose was now canted distinctly to the left. My great neighbor, Marcia, kindly took me to the ER where it was confirmed that my nose is broken and displaced to the left. I find out Monday the details of having it re-set. Hubby just came in from the barn and states that Tomas seems very concerned. Today will no doubt bring some interesting new colors to my face, already I have some lovely blackish, green areas, but the good news is that with all the swelling you really can't tell that my nose is displaced!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (late) to Sharon and Rick!!

Lawrence (DH) was sure surprised when he ventured into the garden for the first time since tilling it. Tomotoes, tomatoes everywhere. I just giggled as he remembered quite well my surprise at his purchase of so many tomatoe plants. They are not going to waste, Saturday they made a wonderful sauce for my jambalaya, spaghetti sauce for the freezer as well as lots more for freezing and use later.

Rudy, a dear friend was kind enough to lend a hand this weekend, removing the dead trees that were remaining in the front pasture. He seemed at ease on the tractor and was a big help. THANKS Rudy!!

I extended the pasture temporarily today to allow the animal access to some grass that had not been grazed in many many years. They seemed to enjoy the change of scenery also.
