February photos

Hello my friends! I'm finally finding some time to share some pictures and info from me and my family.
These are just some random images from this month. Hope you enjoy them!

Brianna loves playing with our German Shepherd, but because he is aggresive towards strangers, we keep him on the chain during the day. This was taken in the morning, before Chester was tied up for the day.

Marv thinks we need more pets, so he found this dove (chick, baby?) and brought it home. In the beginning Cindy was its prime caretaker, feeding her 4 times a day and cleaning out her box. But now Cindy is in the dorm and Brianna in school, so guess who gets to feed this ugly duckling? And enjoying it:)

This is my wonderful, beautiful, hardworking, Pfaff in action. I sewed sheets and pillowcases for the girls to use in the dorm. At least no one will have the same ones:)

I can't wait to embellish a baby blanket or something with these cute turtles!
My nephews came over to play. They are NOT  playing with dolls, but playing with TOYS.:)

Nicole and Brianna however are playing with Barbies. Brianna has half of the living room for a barbie city!

My cats taking a siesta together. Finally they started to accept the other one, and only fight when one gets his food before the other.
This is the baby dove, a few days later. The girls named her Peepsi. Her feathers are starting to grow out here.
Sunday school graduation last sunday. Our village and a neighboring village preformed a skit and a song. So funny: the youngest Sundayschool student was singing with half closed eyes and dancing to the music:) Amy was accompaning the group on the guitar, and Cindy and Brianna were also singing.
Brianna on her second day of school. (We did take pictures on the first day, but you could see the stress shining through, so I decided to take some on the next day)
This is how big Peepsi is this morning, I have my second cup of coffee while feeding her and watching the news on TV, which I never do otherwise!

Thanks for dropping in to see my blog. I need to prepare some stuff for supper now, my parents are coming for a simple bbq:)

Take care and come again!

Can't wait for Monday:)

A lot of numbers

Numbers have always fascinated and baffeled me. I always loved math in school and loved taking apart numbers and putting them back together again. So today I'm going to give you a few numbers about me:)

School starts on Valentine's day for Amy and Cindy, and a day later for Brianna. Amy and Cindy will both be in the dorm during the week. Brianna takes the bus to a school about 10 km from home; she leaves at 6:25 am and comes home around noon. I really hope to get more sewing projects done this year while she's in school. I got a beautiful quilting magazine from my friend Faith from Canada and I've been itching to start quilting again.

I have to make my zwieback now, so I have to go.

P.S. I hope to post about a Christmas gift from my parents later on this week, so come back soon:)
