It hasn’t felt like much of a winter. A break from the craziness of work is welcome, however, as shearing is just the beginning of upcoming farm events. Everything is now focused on getting ready to welcome our lambs and this is the week that I need to be organizing that.
In the meantime we are certainly enjoying the mild weather. I took advantage of the sun and 40 degree temperatures to wash some fleece yesterday. I love the smell of lanoliny fleece in the kitchen sink. The aroma of the fleece and the roasting chicken in the oven were a very satisfactory way to spend the afternoon as I dutifully cast on for my knit-along sweater.
Unfortunately, they are predicting some rain for this morning and then snow tomorrow. You just never know.
