Some Pig ;-)

Since we got Miss LuLu 
it has been too chilly at night 
for her to sleep out doors.

She sleeps in her crate in the living room.
But, before we all go to bed, 
she has enjoyed some family time during the evenings.
Miss Daisy has been so sweet about 
LuLu resting in her bed.

LuLu has really made herself at home,

and made a good friend.

"I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, 
but through it all I still know quite certainly 
that just to be alive is a grand thing."

 ~Agatha Christie

Miss LuLu

Miss LuLu has been getting used to her new home.
She didn't eat much the first few days,
but she's started to really chow down during feeding time.

Besides eating,
she spends most of her time
scratching against the fence, 

(yes that's a smile!)

rooting (lots of rooting!),

getting to know the chickens,


burrowing in the hay,

and just generally being cute.

"That was rough.... Thing to do now is try and forget it.... I guess I don't quite mean that.  It's not a thing you can forget.  Maybe not even a thing you want to forget.... Life's like that sometimes... Now and then for no good reason a man can figure out, life will just haul off and knock him flat, slam him agin' the ground so hard it seems like all his insides is busted.  But it's not all like that.  A lot of it's mighty fine, and you can't afford to waste the good part frettin' about the bad.  That makes it all bad.... Sure, I know - sayin' it's one thing and feelin' it's another.  But I'll tell you a trick that's sometimes a big help.  When you start lookin' around for something good to take the place of the bad, as a general rule you can find it."

Bible Quiz Day 69

Answer to question 68 - Simon (Acts 8:9-13)

Question 69 - Paul called __________ his son in the faith.

Mr. H.'s Vineyard

Mr. H. has planted some grape vines.
He did some research and has set up the poles and hemp for the first growing season.

He planted red and white varieties.

2 concords, 1 cayuga, and 1 niagara

It will take three growing seasons before any fruit will be produced.

So maybe in ~three years~ I can make some grape jam! 
(And, I thought I had to be patient waiting on the chickens to lay their first eggs...!)
