She recently had the trailer renovated. Much of the interior space is wood-
burned and decorated by her. She also burned her Sisters-on-the-Fly membership into a plaque.
We spent much of the time on the front porch, with the water fountains plugged in, accompanied by birds singing songs of love.
eratures are still abnorm-
ally low. Amy is knitting to a deadline. This is a log cabin lap blanket for her nephew's wedding next month. The white is from our wether Robbie, very cool.
I'm knitting to a deadline of sorts myself. Diane asked me in May if I'd knit for her. She emailed me the pattern but I've been slow to get the yarn. I'm on it now and will use it for my trip knitting when I go back to Oregon the day after tomorrow. It's kind of weird to knit a sweater without a picture, only directions.
We went over to Mim's at dusk. Her ewes and lambs don't come back to the barn until sunset. They were still up at the top pasture so we visited "the boys." This is Duncan, her ram. Check out those horns! Four of her beautiful boys are already purchased for freezer lambs, sigh.
And here come the flock, running back in for all they're worth. A lamb came in early, got separated and is over on the right, bleating his heart out for his mother, who is calling out for him in return. All in a days work for Mim. It's kinda sad and sweet at the same time.
Mijo, Mr. Person-
ality, is getting bigger, but he's still not old enough to come live with us. He's posing for us with his mom and sister. Goofy. You can see why Mim is attached to him.
Man, Mim has a lot of sheep, which translates into a lot of fleeces to be skirted. Wait. Do you see that goat?! A goat with no ears. I'm confused. Why make goats with no ears?
We didn't have fireworks for our July 4th, just this firecracker of a sunset. It was a real popper.
The color was so over-
whelming that we had a double sunset, of sorts.
