Happy as a lamb!


What a week we just had!  

10 new lambs safely on the ground.  One more ewe, Bruna, safely in her lambing stall.  Today is her due date.

We got nearly 50 pounds of Kennebec potatoes planted yesterday, as well as a quarter of a pound of bush beans, thanks to lots of back-breaking help from wonderful friends!

Yesterday afternoon I basically fell unconscious.  One minute we were sitting on the deck with our friends, soaking in the sun and some Chardonnay, and the next I was following some subconscious urge to lie down for just a little, fully intending to go back downstairs in a couple of minutes to resume our visit.  Roy tried to rouse me a couple of times without much success.  Apparently I refused an invitation to dinner that I don’t’ even recall!  And the next thing I know I’m waking up shortly before 1 am wondering why I’m wearing socks – and then realize I’m still dressed!  Wow, was I ever tired!  I’ve been fighting a virus on top of a week of interrupted sleep and numerous adrenaline rushes, and I guess my body just shut down.

I hope our guests will forgive me!

Lots of lamb pictures yet to come!
