Instead Of Blogging

I usually blog after the kids are tucked in bed and all is quiet for the night.

Lately, however, I have been otherwise engaged.

Now I go spotlighting. The heifers are (supposed to be) calving, so we keep close tabs on them. If I take the 11 p.m. check, I can stay snug in my bed until the small people drag me out in the morning. The arrangement works well for us because I tend to be a night owl, and Shane's the type that falls asleep during the nightly news and pops out of bed long before the sunrise.

It's bad news for the blog, though. Not only are the pictures not great with a spotlight for lighting, but my writing time is cut short.

But who would want to miss seeing these beauties by moonlight?

They kind of have the look of, "If that nurse comes in here one more time to check on me while I'm trying to rest..."

Don't you remember being irritated like that in the hospital?

Ha ha!

Ooh, creepy. They look like their saying, "Take us to your leader." Either that or planning to take over the planet and turn us all into vegetarians.
