I don't know how many of you have heard that song, It is a spiritual song by a group that I love, song is called "Little Bit Of Mornning Outside".... talks about the darkest moment is just b/f the dawn. It ALWAYS brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it., will try to see if I can get it on my blog here you. Well today I received the sweetest box of little goodies and a very SPIRITUALLY encouraging card from a complete stranger who says she follows my blog. ... a sister in Christ that I do not yet personally know, What a blessing and encouragement this person has been to me. Things like that mean so very much at times when you feel you are so bottom of the pit. God Bless you so much who ever it was that sent it and may God Richly RICHLY Bless you and yours!! Hugs and Love.

Got these three dolls shipped off today to customers. My shoulder is still in sooo much pain, didn't think I would ever get them boxed and then to the post office. But thank God that chore is now done. The Mammy Vac cover is from my Primitive Mammy Vac Cover design, available as pattern or finished on website.

Waited here until 7 pm for them to come back and shear Curly today as they said they would, I had to leave then to run an errand. They had called and also sent me a text earlier yesterday so they knew how to reach me plus know where I live of course. But they just didn't bother showing, calling texting,.... nothing. So Curly still has a horrible chop job hair cut on one side and scraggly long hair everywhere else and I am in excruciating pain still, mostly my shoulder. Guesss I will have to search once again for some one to shear him. We are supposed to have severe storm cell move through here all night from about midnight through around 7 a.m, so I am going to buckle down and try to stay awake, it is about 10:30 pm now...those storms scare me! So I will probably weather watch all night! Might take the dogs, some blankets, and sleep in the barn with Curly tonight, not kidding either! Have a Blessed evening everyone.

I got beat up this afternoon. New people came to shear Curly, they were professional with gentle lambs and small goats they show and raise BUT had no idea what they were in for. Curly is stubborn, strong, spoiled, demanding and will fight with all he has when it comes to shearing. They put him on a metal platform and put his head into that thing, he fought like heck, there were 4 or us! I had to help hold him with all my might which tore up my hands, ankles, & shoulder cause of the bad RA I have. He pulled my shoulder joint really bad when he tried to run with me when I had the leash on him, almost pulling me to the ground. Curly was so upset trying to get lose, he bucks and jumps frantically, ends up kicking me right smack in the chest with that hoof about 2" below my throat on those bones. That is hurting worse by the hour. I am aching so bad from trying to hold onto him. I feel like my fingers,shoulder, hands and ankle joints are on fire, fingers,hands and shoulder are pulsating in pain. When I lie down and close my eyes I feel like I am falling. Can hardly walk now and I was just in tears this afternoon cause I can't stand to see Curly so upset and the shearing gets so brutal. But this time I was the one who got brutalized! I am so afraid he is going to have a heart attack from the stress cause he is old. I have had him about 13 years. He didn't mean to hurt me of course, he was just so upset. So as it ends up he finally breaks their clippers, snaps the metal post that he was chained to right off the platform, tears off running into the back yard and into the barn with the metal post and chain still attached to him. They got that off and decided they will have to drug him tomorrow (Monday) to finish the job and bring larger heavy duty clippers. Now I am so scared the drugs may kill him. They told me today he is better off being upset and stressed than drugged due to his age. But his hair is sooo very long and felted and just a horrible mess this time, he has to be sheared. They said the felted tight hair is probably pinching and hurting him too, I agree. It started to grow out after I had that surgery year ago October, so I was unable to really deal with trying to handle him in any way for almost a year due to that back surgery and he is so strong, doesn't want to be brushed or anything. So now his hair is an awful mess and needs to come off for his health and comfort. I love Curly so much, he is my baby and all I have here anymore. He is like a dog that you are so terribly attached to. After they left he was fine, except he had a horrible chop job done with about a 20" by 20" place shaved on one side only! I was still in tears and upset that he would be ill. But looks like I got the much worse end of it all but I'd rather it be me than poor Curly. I went back out to the back yard later and he came up to me, I bent down a little, cause he wanted to give me a kiss,That is how he does... he gives me kisses on the cheek and then he laid his head on my shoulder so I would hug him, so of course I did. He is so special to me, I hate to think of losing him. Hope and pray tomorrow will go smooth, don't think I can stand to watch. If you are an animal lover, please say a prayer for his safety and comfort tomorrow. Well back to the couch, I am in horrible and I mean horrible pain. All I have done is lay there and cry and moan for over a couple hours. Have the fan on and the dog is lying at the other end of the couch and keeps farting so guess where it is blowing, oh yes, lovely odor! Last thing I need tonight, a gassy dog. Why can't every day just go smooth?? Don't even begin to try to answer that!
My "fresh out of the oven, butter bubbling out the top, home made Chicken Pot Pie!" Is your mouth watering yet?? Mine sure is. Got home from church this afternoon, took the doggies out and let Curly go for a short walk to graze in the woods and then I came in and made this Chicken pot pie, always from scratch, don't eat frozen dinners! It smells soo good, put lots of Itallian Seasoning in it, just had to take a pic, LOL, fresh out of the oven. Blogging while I waited for it to cool a little....Well, time to get a glass of iced Tea and have myself some Sunday Lunch...just me and my doggies! Blessings to all.
