Woolie Love

Good Thursday afternoon friends.I am feeling a little woolie love today thanks Trace of Granny Trace Scraps & Squares!I am sure most of you already know sweet Trace but if you don't be sure to check her blog.Trace is a wonderful kind Christian woman that is a friend to all.She has a way of making you see the blessings in everything,lifting your spirits.Trace is also hosting 100 days of scripture,so wonderful to read.She recently had a woolie heart giveaway and I was blessed to win.I received her awesome package on Tuesday but just had not had the chance to get a  post up.So sorry about the delay! Trace asked which of the woolie hearts that I would like and I chose the one with friends stitched on the front,well not only did she send it but also included another woolie heart and some awesome heart buttons!I was so happy when I opened the mail and spied that package,it might have been cold as all get out but I was dancing.LOL!Here are the pics of my woolie hearts...

Thanks so much Trace!Receiving these wonderful hearts really made a bright spot in my week.Hugs my friend!

I would also like to say that if it seems that I am neglecting any of your blogs,please forgive me.Blogger is giving me fits...sometimes I can open the blogs and sometimes not,sometimes it will allow me to comment other times I can forget it.I have tried deleting blogs that are no longer active but I can not get them off my reading list.It is just plain aggravating!

As it always works out, if it is cold then the momma goats tend to have their babies,this frigid blast has been no different.Sure enough on the coldest day that we have had in two years the one goat that I always dread seeing have babies decided that Tuesday was the big day.This nanny can never decide if she is going to actually raise her babies or not.I think she gets angry because of the pain because usually I end up bottle feeding them.Well this time momma wanted her babies for the first day,then suddenly she was done,motherhood is not for her.She delivered two little girls,we lost the first one not long after birth and then yesterday she quit feeding the other one. It is now in the house and it is a gamble if it will survive or not,it seemed to be chilled when I brought her inside.She was damp and to be honest I think Buddy my Great Pyrenees had heard the baby crying and decided to try and help by washing her.If I did not like the momma goat so much I would find her a new home.If you wouldn't mind,  say a little prayer for the baby.Also while you are saying your prayers please include a very dear friend of mine and her husband in them.Her husband recently suffered a stroke.Thanks so much.

Well that is what has been occupying my time of late.I hope that you all are well and warm.My thoughts and prayers are with those that are still homeless on the East Coast from the terrible storms.Remember to hug those you love as our time together is precious.Big hugs and a Woolie grin(thanks Trace),Jen

Such cute woolies, love those buttons too!

Aw, poor baby goat! I hope she is okay, I am sure she is enjoying the warmth of your home. :)

I hope you have a great night and thanks so much for all your comments on my blog. I seem to be in a blog slump. I am having a hard time posting and I don't seem to be able to spend the time I used to reading blogs. I hope to get into that routine again because I sure do miss it!

Hi, blogger has been giving me a lot of troubles lately too. Very
difficult to upload and arrange and enlarge photos. I hope they fix it.
Trace is one of my first followers, she is an awesome person. You are an awesome follower too. I am blessed to know you. Sending prayers for your friend and also for that little baby. Hugs, Anna

Kendra said...

Oh, what we do for our animals. I hope that she makes it, I love that you have her inside right now, so sweet.

I have had to right click (or is it left?) to get the drop down and then click on "open" to get onto blogs from my bloglist and then again to leave a comment. I am so glad to hear it is not just me.

Have a good evening and good luck with your suragate mothering :)
