Tuesday Chatter

This Chuckie. My neighbor Chuck called me the other day asking if my pig was out. What pig? We didn't have a pig. Seems after checking surrounding neighborhood and no one claiming a pot bellied pig and no one has reported losing one on any sites or Vet office we now have a pig. At least for a little bit. Chuck and I think someone set it out after it got so big. He hasn't been fixed or house trained so is very smelly. We named Chuckie after neighbor found him. He loves having his belly scratched and after being afraid of the Pyrenees he has made friends with Jenny and stays close to her. Still hoping we can find his owners but if not we will find him a good home. Should have named our place Misfit Farm instead of Hidden Haven. If a person or animal don't fit in anywhere else seems like they always find their way here.

Suppose to have ice in the morning. Haven't had much winter yet. Hoping it arrives soon and hangs around for a bit. I don't even mind thawing rabbit water bottles or feeding in the muddy mess. Winter is such a wonderful time of year.

Seed catalogs are starting to show up. I hate thinking of all the extra work spring and summer bring but we have been talking and planning this years gardens.

Grandson Will is home. Doing out patient therapy. He can walk a little bit but has wheelchair to use when he is tired. The nerves in his face haven't came back yet. He can't smile or wrinkle his forehead.  Hopefully those nerves will get stronger soon. He is very blessed to be alive!

I am enjoying a nice mug of chamomile caramel tea by the woodstove before heading off to bed. Have lots of laundry to take care of tomorrow and want to work on my bedroom. I still haven't unpacked everything from Minnesota!

Stay warm and have a blessed night.

You're a comfort to me... reading about all you do. And Chuckie ... he looks adorable in his fatness. :)

I often read stories of people that think they are getting tea cup piggies and as they get older and bigger and bigger they found they've been duped. It doesn't sound like whomever was a very responsible owner if he isn't trained. So glad that you took him in until you can find a forever home. Soooo very glad to hear that your grandson is making steps towards a full recovery. Postive vibes and prayers sent!
