Final Farm Fotos of 2011: No party animals here

As the sun sets on another year, we get ready to welcome in the new...... 
Thanks to the new lights that were put in a few weeks ago by Hubby and his brother (who just happens to be a great electrician), it looks like a festive party might be taking place in the sheep barn.

In reality, once the sheep come inside the barn for the night  and fill their bellies at the feed troughs, they will probably pass out until morning.

No big celebration for the chickens either,  who will have been asleep for nearly 6 hours by the time midnight rolls around.

There probably won't be much of a party inside the house....  just Hubby and I sipping coffee and sharing a box of these. (Which for me beats being at Times Square on New Year's Eve any day.)

After stuffing ourselves with the worlds' best doughnuts,  me, Hubby, and Lily will snuggle by the fire and watch the festivities on TV.
Actually, we will probably start out watching a football game then fall asleep halfway through the second quarter. *S…

We're home!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that Hubby came through his surgery just fine,  and now we're home resting and recuperating. And there was one mighty sad little bulldog who had to stay home all alone that was really happy to see us when we got back. In fact, she hasn't let hubby out of her sight all day today.... Thanks for all your prayers and well-wishes, dear blog friends.... they mean so much to me. Be back next week- Merry Christmas, everyone!

My wish...

This will probably be my last post until after Christmas- Hubby is having surgery this week to repair a herniated disc in his back and we will be spending a quiet holiday at home while he recuperates.
In between taking care of everything (and everyone) around here, I will still be visiting my blog friends .... My wish for all who reads this is that you have the most wonderful Christmas ever, with plenty of joy and laughter and time spent with the ones you love.

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."

Pumpkin seeds and Decorations

This morning I'm toasting the last of the pumpkin seeds I saved from our fall decorations.... I had planned on saving some for adding a tasty little crunch to our tossed salads from time to time, but I doubt very seriously if they will last that long. I ate most of the first batch as soon as they came out of the oven and this time I had to try and control myself to keep it from happening again.

I seem to have acquired a taste tester in the kitchen....  I don't even want to think about what pumpkin seeds would do to her digestive system,  so she'll just have to settle for something else to sample. (And preferably something that won't give her any more gas than she already has....)

Mmmmmmm... they're still sizzling....
Can you hear them?

They're saying, "Don't wait until we cool off... savor the flavor NOW."

"Just one little taste won't hurt me..."
