A friend stopped by today to take a look at our cow. She spent many years raising cattle, and we value her opinion. We all filed down to the barn and watched her take a look. Then she said, "Well, it looks like it will happen soon -- in 7 to 10 days." What?? We've been checking on her (just taking looks, nothing invasive) every 2 hours for the past 2 weeks! Maybe we all will be fooled and she will deliver earlier than that.
I spent my afternoon at the neighbor's, learning how to make lefse. It's still amazing to me that I grew up with a big Scandinavian family, and yet no one made lefse. I would have rather done without lutefisk!
