Can’t get enough of this weather!

Spring sky and budding trees

Even though my allergies are kicking me hard.  It’s so amazing to be able to take time outside in the afternoon doing chores and spending time with the ewes, lambs and goats, getting some yarn dyeing done, and just enjoying the light, the buds on the trees, the sky, and thankfully a bit of a breeze. I have, however, already had enough of the blackflies!

The lambs are growing like weeds.  I gave our first buster his 3.5 week CD&T shot over last weekend, but I was alone out there and couldn’t get a weight on him.  I am hoping to give the other five their shots this weekend and maybe I will be able to get them all weighed.  I think they are coming up on the one month old mark!  Time is flying.

In the meantime, in spite of the dry weather which I know is not good, I am loving the outdoors and all the daylight after work that we have to enjoy!
