...the magical powers of NyQuil Sinus LiquiCaps. You know, the "sleep like before you had kids" or something like that, medicine....yeah, that stuff. I've had a hateful sinus cold this week. I feel OK, just a little sneezy and foggy, during the day but as the sun sets I turn into a hot mess!
Besides all of that it has been a pretty busy week. We are still waiting on baby goats. I'm starting to wonder if they are just playing tricks on us! I think that they think it's funny that I drop everything several times a day to go down and stare at their rear-ends, looking for any "signs". They laugh at me. I can almost hear them as I walk back up the hill "haha! We got her again! Humans- 0 Goats- 167 Wonder if we can get her back down here by lunch? Hey Nanny, if you can get her back down here by lunch, WITH THE CAMERA, we'll let you eat all of the sweet feed. Deal?" Don't even try to argue with a woman in my condition. I heard it! I know I did! They are probably stuffing themselves with hay so that they will look pregnant too!
You see how they try to trick me? I was checking on all of them the other day when Nanny starts acting funny, she snorts, makes a funny noise, starts moving around, I get the camera ready and pay close attention......and then she does this little circus trick! Have you ever seen such? She IS laughing at me! Can't you see that little smirk on her face? "Hey everybody look! The mom thought I was about to go! hehe! She is so easy!".
I'm out. If you need me, I'll be here....doped up on NyQuil and taking pictures of the business end of goats....It's a glamorous life, I tell you. If any of these goats DO happen to have babies, you will be the first to know.

I don't believe this! It's another crazy story. Are you ready?
So do you believe it?.....I still can't! LOL! Ben and I often pray that God will bless anything we put our hands to so that we can get our kids home as soon as possible, and he continues to overwhelm us with blessings!!!! I gunna get summer Sanuks! Seriously! Can you believe that?
Deuteronomy 15:10 "....the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to."

She was teaching me...How many times do I rush through reading my Bible because I have a busy day ahead and I don't give my heart time to really absorb what I'm reading...or give God the chance to move my heart to tears? How many of us can learn from this little girl? She really does have the most beautiful little heart....
Mathew 19:15 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

You see those big rolls of paper right there on top of my drafting table? That's Miss Mary! As of this morning (Ben made a run to Kinko's while I slept in) the Miss Mary pattern sheet is in print. My master copy is ready, and there is a possibility that we will be heading off to the printer sometime next week!
You know, I'm always amazed when I see that first master copy, at how it looks like no big thang, but in the back of my mind I know how many hours it took to make them...oh it's such a relief to to have them DONE! There is still a lot of work to do but this definitely takes some of the pressure off!
(By the way- just ignore the empty Diet Sunkist bottle under the desk, it's all good!)
While we are here in the loft I wanted to show you this awesome drafting table my hubby got me a few months ago! Isn't it awesome?! He saw it at the thrift store and thought it would be perfect since it can be used on top of a table (we don't have a ton of extra space in the loft these days). He brought it home and decided that he could make the top of it into a light box, which is what I was used to drafting on, and he did! I used it first on the Miss Alice pattern and it really made the job easier. It also has a good bit of space for large drafts to lay flat inside- that's wonderful since my kids have this thing for crumpling large flat pieces of paper. When it's not in use it can be stored in the attic right outside of the loft. He rocks! Just sayin...

If you haven't met Sid before I'll just tell you, he's awesome! He has been a part of our family since Ben and I were just kids, he was our Sunday school teacher for at least five years. He goes on vacation with us, he eats with us every Sunday, and he is at every birth, every party, he has been in every hospital waiting room, you name it Sid has been there. He's also the man who married Ben and I! It's funny, the kids usually get upset the first time they realize that his last name is not Caffee! LOL! I've always thought that was so funny.
