First lamb - his mother is Lavender, which makes him 3/4 Shetland and 1/4 Lincoln. Check out the horn buds - he is going to have monster horns. 
Mostly black, but I suspect he will turn silver


Mom had eye appointments at the VA hospital in Columbia today. As usual, since it is such a long trip, we made a day of it. And we stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch. Rhi thought this was cool for several reasons. It's one of Jason Michael Carroll's favorite places to eat. And our waiter's name was Jason. 
Jason was a great waiter too - when I asked him about ingredients for a specific dish (since Rhi can't eat high fructose corn syrup), he checked on everything on the kids menu. And, while she couldn't eat the chicken strips that she wanted (darn breading), she could eat the macaroni and cheese and the homemade biscuits.  Jason also complimented her on how polite she was (she always says sir or ma'am when asking for things at a restaurant, and please and thank you. The please and thank yous we insist on. The sir and ma'am she picked up when Patrick was still in TKD)
Appointments went well, and we were able to do a little shopping at Michael's.


"Mom, take my picture, with my hand as a V!"

This is the only picture I took today, so here it is on the P365. 
This layout was done for a House of Serendipity Challenge on the Serendipity Scrapbooks Forum. The challenge was to use one of two sketches. Mine is pretty close. 
The strips at the top are crooked, but by the time I realized it, it was too late to move them without tearing something. So I left it. And the title letters are easier to see IRL - they just did not photograph well.


Lights out at the clinic!
Had a bit of a power outage today. The lights have flickered before, but they usually come right back on. This time, they were off for about an hour and a half. 
Do you know how hard it is to get bloodwork done or take radiographs, or take care of ICU patients, or things like that without electricity? The surgery room has an emergency light, but the rest is quite difficult. The girls had to use their cell phones to call clients to reschedule appointments because we didn't even have phones. 
The electric company never said what happened, and it didn't make the evening news, but about 300 customers were involved.


Miss Maggie Rose


Guest spot from my daughter!
She was using the camera, and took a photo of the two little dolls that live in her rose garden house. The toy has spots where you can plant seeds and actually grow tiny plants.


Tried to get Rhi to sit for a photo shoot. 
She wasn't in the mood.


Rhi doing schoolwork. She has done so well in the last week, and has finished up several of her books.


Today Rhi and I went to see Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. 
We thought it was a pretty good movie. I had heard from a couple of people that we wouldn't like it if we'd read the books - so I guess it's a good thing we hadn't read the books. 
Definitely thinking about getting them though.


Whoops, got a little behind there.. At least I got the photos taken on time.. LOL

This was lunch.. Rhi and I made penny pizzas from some golden rolls. We placed them close together on the pan, to help with cheese coverage, and she had to make a face on hers. LOL.
