pig pile

I didn't intend to have this blog so silent this week, 
but with a persistent illness still lingering, 
new glasses (constantly requiring trips to the "big city" 25 min away for adjusting)
and the other spring busy-ness,
it's been a bit hard to keep up.

This morning, one of our sows had 19 piglets (19!?!)! Make that 20! One was born as I was typing this!
17 18 little piglets are trying to nurse away right now in the barn.
It's very unlikely that they will all live
but we are enjoying silent moments of awe 
watching these sweet little babies snuggle close.

It's been a whirlwind of a week... and I'm sick, yet again.  (Non-stop colds during this pregnancy)
The boys' favorite kitty was hit by a car last Wednesday.  We are still missing him.  :(
A quick trip down to CT for Thanksgiving.
A successful two day craft fair with some mama friends.
More piglets, though they came early and we lost more than half the litter.
And a long day at work today. 
Missing Tiger...
An attempt at a 'cousins pic'...

Holiday market photos from my friend's phone...
Looking forward to a day at home tomorrow.
