So, Sunday night after hockey and watching the hockey All Star weekend, filled with games and events.  Go Ovechkin, who has won the shootout contest 3 years in a row.  Liam's team had 3 games this weekend, they won 2 and lost 1 and Liam scored twice.  He checked a kid today, clean check, but possibly broke his leg or fractured his kneecap.

Back to the Shelley Homestead.  Dumbledore the rooster crowed (or more appropriately I should say tried to crow).  It was a very poor attempt, but will hopefully get better with regular practice (haha).

We are not sure if all the girls, Monica, Rachel and Phoebe, are pregnant or not.  I am 99% sure that Phoebe is (only because she is the only one with teats that are getting larger), but unsure of the due date.  This weekend would have been the earliest, but none of them look big enough yet, so the wait goes on.  All is ready for the big event, though.

Marty the pig is going to be moved out to live with the goats when the weather gets warmer.  That way he can root up the blackberry bushes and any small stumps for us (like earning his keep, haha).  Also, he really enjoys being outside more than inside and around the other animals.  We might possibly be getting another weaner pig so he can have some piggy company.

Just printed off a recipe for caramelized leek and potato soup that was on Gardening with Ciscoe on King 5 Seattle.  Sounded so yummy and I love, love, love leeks, so can't wait to try it.  We are definitely planting leeks this year.

Ta ta for tonight!
