It's raining!!!!!

Yippee! The sound of the rain is mesmerizing tonight....not a downpour, just an even, steady rain. You can almost hear the grass cheering! The pasture and lawn and gardens have been dry and in dire need of a good soaking rain. I hope it rains all night!!!! Of course it can stop anytime around 4 am and then the sun can shine....I have lots of wool to wash this weekend and it would be nice to have the sun shining and maybe a light breeze. I've put it my all I can do is see what's happening as the day dawns. Maybe I can get some pictures tomorrow, too. I'll keep you posted :0)

I'm on a roll! least I posted! It's not sheep, but it's part of the beauty of Kindred Spirit Farm. As I have said in previous posts, my gardens tend to be a bit on the WILD side! They don't want to stay in the boundaries that I have created and have even "jumped" and started a new life on the other side of the stone walls bordering the the gravel, no less! How can you confine such a free spirit? I can't bring myself to pull them up, so I offer them to neighbors and friends who come and admire their tenacity. "Help yourself" what I tell them. BYOP......

bring your own pot.

Has it really been that long?

I can't believe that I haven't posted since June! Time flies when you're working, farming, playing and just plain LIVING! Where do the days go...and let's hope they go by just as fast when the snow is flying and we're waiting for lambs! Right now, a bit of an October breeze would sure feel good. I guess I'll just pray to remember this warmth when I'm sitting by the woodstove this January. In the meantime....I think Saturday and/or Sunday should be a kayaking kind of day, don't you? Keep cool my friends!
