Old Friends

This is the view that initially captured my heart. Today we are sitting on Mim's front porch for a spin-in. I came with our friend Linda eleven years ago for a spin-in and ended up falling in love with this valley.
We - being the five, minus one (Linda) - members of an old sheep-to-shawl team that grew into genuine friendships. Linda is in Portland, and that's the only thing that could have made this day better.
Laura, in the blue shirt, also lives in Oregon, but her visit is the reason we've all come together. We're looking at some of Mim's fleeces. The weather was a little crisp but what a great day.

We did a walk-
about, checking in on her new goats and sheep.. These are some of the newest additions to her flock. Their little voices and antics are irresistible.
I love Mim's place. Her verdant yard is a mere few miles from our house and so different from the rabbit damage we experienced. It was a lovely day.

The stunning scenery and cute beasties are exactly what I needed today. The blues, greens and mountains make for beautiful viewing. Thank you for sharing your bit of paradise.
