In the last week there’s been a flurry, as always, and it included receiving 50 turkey poults, 2 dozen chicks, welcoming Melody’s big little ewe lamb, named “Miriam”, quick trips to see friends in New Hampshire (thank you, Masons & Moose!!)(thank you, Tara & Miranda & Alli for having our back at the farm so we could go!), moving the sheep, moving the sheep again, moving the sheep again…, dyeing and dyeing and dyeing yarn from the farm, taking Jackie to the vet’s to check that rotten cough that keeps coming back, gardening, pickling, hosting summer campers, shearing a couple of sheep that had some overgrown-bad-haircuts from the spring, trying to fix broken things, saying goodbye to family that had to trek on(sigh…)
I wish there were two empty weeks to catch my breath, to figure out what’s up and what’s down, but that’s asking a lot. Our quick overnights to see the Mason-family in NH inspired me enough with the purchase of some new food-storage containers to declare Monday of this week “January 1.” I thought I’d clean out an overfull cabinet of saved-containers and replace them with proper clear storage vessels. Lately I only have enough resources to take on baby-challenges where housekeeping is concerned.
Today I’ve taken a little time to put out a post with some photos and thoughts. It’s a wonderful time of year to be inspired. The flowers are blooming, the green is SO green around here, the sun is shining and the birds are singing all of the songs.
May your summer days be happy and healthy and inspired.
Enjoy the photos, click on some of the captions for links to read more.
