1st Things First...
For the last few years, I've had a personal "scrapbook marathon". Usually in January, I'm late this year, I take a day or two and scrapbook the entire year so I'm done for another year. Well, in a day and a half I did lots and lots of pages. Sometimes I feel so tired but now I know why. We did so much this year from having a wedding, graduation, some trips, conferences, new grandchild, two important funerals, and so much more. It is a reminder of how good God is to take us through so many experiences, keep us safe, and teach us at the same time. Yes, I do make quite a mess. I just throw stuff on the floor and when I'm done I clean it up. Kinda my own style of speedscrapping I guess.
Today Arthur took Miriam and Hosanna along to the cattle auction. Some of ours and a neighbors bulls. It was quite cold with a -35 wind chill this morning. Brr!
No, he didn't buy an Amish wagon although Miriam took this because she thought it was neat.
And no, he didn't buy sheep although he thought about it. Even called to see if I wanted any.
Instead, Arthur bought a llama! He called up and said, "Honey, guess what I bought you for Valentine's Day?" Right, a llama! Little late, Arthur! :) He thought it might be a nice addition to our maze zoo. Mmm. We're not ever sure if it's a girl or boy. When Miriam tried to check she kicked! At least she didn't spit at her which they're known to do. Anyway, we don't know a thing about llama's other than what we read about today. Any advice anyone? What should we call this big guy? Or big girl? It seems curious and it's in the pen with the horses which it doesn't seem to mind. I don't think I've ever had such an interesting "Valentine's Day"gift! I guess the auctioneers thought it was funny seeing Arthur buy a llama so after that, when they had a little horse with no bids, they said, "Hey, where's the llama man?" Miriam was embarrassed! It does have beautiful eyes. Have a great Sunday tomorrow!
