In the picture above, I'm showing you my favorite way to brew a single mug of coffee. I have been making my afternoon mug o' joe this way for many years. I use a Melitta Single Cup pour-over thingy. What I love about it is that it takes just minutes to boil the water and pour it over coffee grounds. It's simple, it's hot, and the taste is superb! I also like that I can take it with me when Hubs and I go on a trip. (I told you I was a coffee snob.) The last time we went to a week-long golf tournament, I packed my coffee, filters, and my red funnel. All I need is boiled water, and most hotels have one of those little coffee pots in the room or hot water in the lobby. I never have to worry about drinking yukky coffee that way and it's easy to pack.
The bum lambies left for a new home today. The six went to a family with nice little children who will love them. They also have goats so the lambies will have delicious, nutritious goat milk rather than the powdered stuff I was feeding them. They are lucky lambs indeed!
Yesterday a special gift flew down to me. I was out feeding the sheep and noticed the bluest-of-blue bluebirds on the barb wire fence. I couldn't believe my eyes! As you can see from the pictures above, it is extremely dry and brown out here. To see the bluebird against the dull background you see was most impressive. I stopped and glassed the bird with my binoculars. I believe it was a Western Bluebird. I didn't get a really clear look at him, but I think the beak was thicker than the Mountain Bluebird that I sometimes see during migration and he had the rosy color on his breast. Bluebirds never stay here, but just fly on through. Still, it was a treat for my eyes. A Bluebird of Happiness -- more evidence of spring migration.
