We've had three more sets of triplets in the past two days. That means that three of them will go into the bum pen unless we can graft them on mothers with single lambs. I'm feeding
six eight bum lambs. One has a broken leg which we splinted yesterday. His mother likely stepped on him. Someone asked in the comments if triplets are typical in sheep. No, they are not. It does happen, but triplets are not the norm. Twins, yes. Trips, no. Quads, no.
Since we are just one third of the way through lambing, I have a hunch that we are going to have lots of lambies in the bum pen this year. Just when I was thinking it would be fun to "be somebody" and start a little Etsy Shop with embroidered pretties, I will instead humbly take my place in the lambing barn sitting on a bucket feeding the bums. I really do love them, and it's only for a time. HP said yesterday, "Gram, do you know who the bummies' mother is? Me. And you." They like being rubbed under the chin after they have their bottles.
I made Four Seeded Bread yesterday and it was my best batch yet! However, I only had three kinds of seeds so it was just three seeded bread.
I'm contemplating a fabric for my kitchen and dining room curtains. Here are some of my picks.
Another project I am about to do is to repurpose a closet in the guest room so that I can make a little baby nursery in there. I hope to start painting it tomorrow. I'm going to put a used crib in it and decorate it all cutsie. I'm not sure if I will be able to close the closet doors, but if not, I will have curtains to pull across it or tie back as needed. I hope my grandgirls will like it. Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest.
Now it's time to go feed the bummies for the last time today, then I'm going to fall into my bed. It snowed. Bah!
