Happy Earth Day.....

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to sit outside with the sheep and soak up some sun and smell the Earth! Ahhhhhh...I'm at peace when I'm with my animals. They bring a certain calm to both Ken and me.

We thrive when we celebrate the Earth...whether we are gardening, being shepherds for our flock, enjoying the sunrise or the full moon as it perches on the mountain top before it slids into the clouds. We are lucky to live in an area where we can enjoy the water, too, and kayak on a lazy afternoon....and just enjoy being. Mother Nature at it's best....such is New England.

Thank you for these gifts.........

Maybe this will explain.........

So I've been a bad blogger....I've been a bit busy. :0)

We still have three Shetlands and one Romney left to lamb. And did I mention that we also have two Boer does that are kidding, also? I feel silly saying that I've been busy when I see some of you guys that have HUGE flocks and LOTS of lambs, but in my own way...I'VE BEEN BUSY!

We have 19 lambs so far and the lamb races that have started have been spectacular! Now, if we can just get a consistent weather pattern of warmth without rain so I can sit on the porch and observe....with a cool drink in hand....well, I can relax a bit and just enjoy!
