Back into the deep freeze after a couple of days of reprieve. The weather is so odd - isn't it? With the floods in the UK, I worry about all those sheep and where the farmers are keeping them. I heard from a reader in Alaska who said they had no snow and she wanted us to ship ours up there!
Back to real life after an extended school holiday for Julia because of the big snowstorm. I've got a lot on my plate right now which I'll share with you later. Every morning, I look out the window at the snow through my kitchen window. I'm not much for house plants but do enjoy a few paper white bulbs in the winter. This poor little geranium is perking up and putting out some new growth and a bloom or two. The light at the end of everyday seems a bit brighter and longer.
These yellow roses appeared a few weeks ago and they are still hanging in there. Such delicate petals.
Lambing has slowed down to one or two a day. I've not been much help at the barn because I took a few days off to see my sister and her family. A much needed break from this place. We watched the Olympics together which reminded me of the hours we used to spend fantasizing that we would be the next Dorothy Hamill. I suppose there are plenty of young girls hoping to be the next Gracie Gold. Nice to dream. Our family friend Mikaela triumphed. How nice for her family, friends and coaches.
Hope you all are having a good week. Stitch on.
