Ok-- I know I owe a nice, meaty post about our kidding season so far (12 babies in a week - so tired!)but I have another market today, so probably won't get to it until next week.

In the meantime, check out this nice article on Haven. The soup they mention is not on the menu anymore, as the menu changes frequently to support the farm-to-table concept....winter squash is all gone now. But the chef says he'll probably make a similar soup soon with sweet potatoes which ARE available now.

Sweeet, huh?

Oh, baby!

We have finally started the kidding season after a 6 day delay on our first birth. Then three more decided to kid along with her. So we had 8 babies between 11am yesterday and 2am today. Tired does not begin to describe....

I will try to update with photos soon. We are trying to keep up with the demand of eight bottle babies plus one mamas who is not doing so well. I'll update when I can.

Trudy's on the HuffPo!

Go check it out - it's on the front page now (9am Central, Feb 10) and it should be in the "Animals we Love" if it's not still there when you click..

Go visit the story and give us a 10 on the cute-o-meter to bump us up in the rankings. :)

Edited at 3pm: She is off of the main page, but still on the page layout if you click the tab that says "Green"

That is Radiance the Eviscerator and her friend Little Chicken on our bed. Sure, LC is refusing to look at the cat, but still -- it's a step.

And as I type, Rosebud & Radiance are both running around the office - on the other side of the house from their bedroom. The kitties are getting bold. And in Radiance's case, a little less aggro.

This is too fun.

What the....?

I don't know how this happened, but Rosebud and Radiance are spooning on our bed now.

I guess we have two indoor kitties.
