Life is moving along here. Texas summer heat and humidity is here in spades, and boy, does one sweat when out doing chores. But it is a good time all the same.
I did sell three more sheep. Two of this years lambs and a year old ewe. So I have sold 6 sheep so far and need to sell some more. So hopefully will find some more people who want to fall down this rabbit hole and love them or else someone who has small acreage and would love a couple of wethers to take care of the mowing needs. Sheep do love to mow your yard for you.
I’ve been working on my Copperplate and Spencerian penmanship. Now when you start from where I am in handwriting this is a long slog, but I’m quite enjoying it and am getting better. Or so I keep telling myself.
Next, the judge in our county finally joined everyone else on the bandwagon of people having to wear masks when in any business in the county. Yikes! I hate masks. I don’t have full breathing as it is and to hinder it further would be just wrong. I did manage to make me a version of one that Mark has where it is like a cowl around the neck then you just pull it up over your nose. That worked well last night for work as I could quickly pull it up and down and could still breath with air from underneath as it was not tight at the bottom. At least I had it easier than others at work who never did get comfortable wearing one and breathing.
But really, worse than having to wear a mask came yesterday. Sweet little Elizabeth broke her leg sometime since last I was out there. It was heartbreaking to see her. But we got her fixed up and she is doing well today. Thankfully. It isn’t slowing her up too much now. I tell more of this story on the Bent Oak Site. So yeah, that is worse than having to wear a mask now if I go out to town. And no I wasn’t the only one getting as much done in town as they could before 12 noon yesterday when it went in play.
So this is just a quick recap. I do need to record some real craft or work here beyond sheep. So must get back to busy. I do have a project going that needs to be finished. Maybe I’ll get to it sooner than later.
But to close here is a picture from a couple weeks ago of three babies (I call all my sheep my babies) enjoying there afternoon ruminations a bit much. I got a short video of their jaws just a working on what they had eaten that morning. So cute and who is enjoying it more than the lamb behind Miriam. It is a girl and Miriam had twin boys so not hers. I am thinking it just might be Elizabeth. That white face is the clue. She really looks like she should have been Sarah’s daughter as Sarah has always stayed so white in face and legs compared to any of the others.
