Art, Stars, Sheep, and CHEESE?

The art and the star part of this journal is getting short shrift. I promise to make it up in the near future. You might want to just relax until the 11th. There are some annoying aspects flying around up there now and after the 11th we should have a much easier time of it!…

Lambs Lambs Lambs

I figured out when we were supposed to start lambing this season. It’s not scientific, I just note the date our ram (Randy) won’t leave the girls alone. He had a bit of a rough time this year because we had several of his sons that were old enough to compete for the ewe’s attention….

Stars and Sheep

It’s weird being a farmer’s wife AND a psychic. Especially since the farmer is a skeptic. He used to be more skeptical. I’ve shocked him a few times. I love when that happens. But if you are going to look at the stars, you may as well live somewhere where you can see them! Life…
