on Miss Abigail to have her calf!

"All in due time," says she.

“All in due time,” says she.

She isn’t due until November 16th, but … we are on active watch now.  Her belly is hard as a basketball, pumped a little too full of air.  I check her before I go to bed … and again during the night.  Last night, I tried to leave a light on in the barn and use the zoom lens on my camera to check her from my bedroom window.  But, Miss Abigail chose to rest in a spot in the barn where I couldn’t see her.  Sigh.  After going outside, I have trouble getting back to sleep.  When the boys were little and had trouble returning to sleep, I used to tell them to think happy-thoughts until they drifted back to sleep.  The night before, I laid there thinking of what goodies I could try dipping in melted almond bark for Christmas candy.  I think I gained five pounds, just thinking about it.  Maybe pig-farmer will check her when he returns home from work-travels tomorrow night.

Stay tuned and wait with me, my friends?
