The day before Stella, I managed to get my camera out after chores at the barns and took some photos. The lamb above was born to a yearling. I guess her name should be Stella.
We have lost count of the number of lambs there are but it is in excess of 200. Lots of chaos and not a lot of time or energy to blog. Here is a photo of the inside of the greenhouse barn. Those feeders on the left have to be filled twice a day to feed the mamas. It really is my least favorite part of chores - peeling the hay off the giant bales and carrying it down the alley to fill the feeders.
I'm waiting for my manuscript to come back from the copy editor the end of this week. I will review it and answer questions and then send it back. I think I will only see my book one more time before it goes to print.
Our kitchen looks a little like the Peaceable Kingdom. It has weak lambs sleeping on wool, cats waiting for the snow to melt and Sadie recovering after being hit by a car. (She is mending nicely.) I really can't wait for spring to arrive so they can all go outside and I can establish some kind of order - although truthfully there is no "order" here at our farm.
I'm sorry that posting has been slim on the blog. I just haven't felt the blogging mojo - perhaps it is the winter that never ends. I think it is a lot of things - including all the negativity that is dragging me (and you?) down on-line these days. I'm in a bit of a funk, not feeling a bit creative and just trying to get through it. This often happens to me at the completion of a big project - I have to find my footing again and move in a different direction. I'm thinking about classes to offer this coming season and if I don't get that organized, they won't happen. I may do a survey for you all to help me out with information on what you would like to see me teach.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all are well.
