We made it!!
As you can see, our sheep are blissfully munching the newly renewed (drenched) grass in our big pasture! This is Shannon, our black Shetland girlie, she is an old old girl but loves to romp and play--keeping her baby Lily nearby (she is right next to Shannon in the picture) even though Lily is a grown up girl herself! They are a happy little family!
We are doing well here, so far so good, knock on wood--our water issues seem to be under control. The water IS out there, just heading somewhere besides our basement--the River Ryan even has a little water fall! We had a too close for comfort call with a tornado on Saturday but the only damage we have is two trees that got a bit twisted up. They are smaller trees/branches so we will save them in our campfire supply.
Our thoughts are definitely with all the weather/water victims in WI and the surrounding states. We hope things can settle down soon, and people can try to rebuild their lives. So sad.
I am behind (still and again) so am working toward a weekend update. I have a bunch of new fleeces from Graham & Margaret's sheep (sheared last week--rah!) and am working on dyeing up some new roving and locks--keep an eye out! Hope you are all safe and please keep in touch when you have time!! Over and out for now.....
