Piglet Watch

I could be really wrong, but it looks like my Idaho pasture pig, Daisy is very pregnant. The problem is, I never saw Oscar Mayer “do the deed” to know when to expect piglets. This is my first time with pigs in the first place and certainly my first time with a true prospect of piglets. I’m excited, and nervous at the same time.

I talk about what I’m doing to prepare for the possibility of piglets on my podcast, This Grandma’s Life

I also show her in my Monday update video but I’m behind on editing and getting my videos published. Surprise, surprise.

I’m still battling the remnants of bronchitis. It’s been over two weeks and I’m way over feeling bad. I’ve decided that I am going to the gym tomorrow, regardless, so I can try to get back into shape again. I did manage to sing with the praise and worship team at church this morning and only vaguely felt like passing out due to lack of oxygen. That is infinitely better than last week when I could only sing two lines before sitting quietly and dejectedly the rest of the service.

Kinzie is on spring break this week and we have plans to work on some things on her car. The weather may not cooperate some days but we want to try to take the inside panel off her passenger door to see if we can fix the door handle. Tom will be at work so the effort will be all Kinzie and me. Hopefully, we won’t tear too much up.

I am now starting to do the mental exercises to make sure that Kinzie, Tom and all my animals will survive in my absence so that I can attend the Self Reliance Festival in Camden, Tennessee on March 25 and 26. I went last fall, speaking and also tried to run a booth while there. This time, I will do neither. I plan to absorb as much as possible with all the wonderful people that will be there so that I can return and hit the floor running on building my own life when I return. I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Work on the bathroom remodel has come to a screeching halt while I’ve been ill…and so has gardening and all the other things we do on the homestead. I look forward to getting back into the groove again.

Until then, piglet watch it is!
