They chased each other round and round and round until they were both totally worn out -- and of course, all this BEFORE we took photos. Before we could do photos I had to clean up lots of slobber, and I got a LOT of shots with big tongues! Oh well... at least they had a good time!
And the weather has taken another crazy turn... it was 80+ today, and supposed to be about 84-85 through Tuesday before it cools down again later in the week. I can't wait to see how the fields of wildflowers thrive with all the rain and now the warmth! Should be extra beautiful!
The flowers are so pretty, and really smell good too! They're kind of sweet smelling. They seem to have kind of like an artificial grape scent. We don't have many Indian Paint Brush flowers on the farm, but there are some up the road a bit, so at some point this week I'll try and get out to get some photos. Maybe I can find a few other types of flowers as well.
I haven't been able to do much crafting this weekend. We've been pretty busy with out-of-the-ordinary things.
Alan and I spent the better part of yesterday in North Dallas. We had to take Twinkle Toes up to a bird clinic to have an egg removed. She layed four eggs this week, and we think it made her so tired she wasn't able to lay the fifth. Poor little thing!
She was looking really sickly and tired Friday night, and I was so worried about her. But we had an appointment with the vet bright and early Saturday morning, and the vet was able to collapse the egg and get it out of Twinkle Toes. She's going to be on antibiotics and serious vitamins for the next couple of months while her body heals. She's feeling MUCH better, but still not 100%. She can't be in the same room as Huey now, since it seems that his swooning could put her right back in egg-laying mode which would be very devastating to her little body. Who knew Huey could be so convincing!
Thanks to all of you for the good thoughts and kind notes you sent while we had the big storms. I've learned a lot about Texas weather in the past week. I know we're not the only area to have wicked weather this past week, so here's hoping you're all safe where you live as well!
