I am going to try to follow through on that one...really, I am....notice that I said, "try?"
The holidays are behind us, the tree and decorations have been packed away, our kids have gone back to their respective homes; Nicole and her husband, Andrew, back to California and our son, Justin, off to Navy bootcamp-yeah, bootcamp, that's a story for another post- things have been pretty quiet around here. So, when I got an email from my dear friend, Nancy Krohn, asking if I was up for a visit last week, I was very excited. Nancy is almost as nutty as I am and a visit from her was sure to liven things up. After giving her some minor clarifications on directions from her place, in Minnesota, to ours, in Iowa- "No, Nancy, Iowa is not to the 'right' of you...Iowa is...ummm, 'under' you" -she was on her way.
Nancy arrived at our house later that evening and my sister Marie came over as well. The three of us chatted, laughed and had a lovely time catching up. Nancy had to head home the next morning, so we had to cut the evening a bit short, but it was still a nice visit.
The next morning, it was time to introduce Nancy to the critters.
She met Daisy and Menemsha.
I think she was trying to steal my little spotty girl, Laurel, from me.
She also made friends with Holly. Holly just thought Nancy had cookies, but we won't tell Nancy that.
Then the rest of my attention-starved animals felt it necessary to molest my guest.
Emma even shared her Jolly Ball with Nancy....well..sort of shared.
Jordan shows Nancy the love...maybe too much love?
Nancy even took something home with her, but you will have to check her blog to see ; ).
One of my favorite things about raising Shetlands is the wonderful sheepie people that I have met over the years and the great friends that I have made along the way. Thanks for visiting, Nancy, and thanks for being a great friend!
