Yesterday I barely remember and today started at four am. I’ve been busy getting back to the outside work I didn’t do while it was raining. Thursday is trash day, we were out of bread and yogurt so I made both after breakfast, did some cleaning in the barn, fed the pigs, made roasted kale for lunch, spent a couple of hours in the studio, and pushed the lawn mower a bit before the girls got home. The butcher called too. By the late afternoon the boxes of pork had all been delivered. Then the girls and I left for our Lego League meeting. We pulled back in our driveway at about eight thirty and found the sheep out, running loose in the yard and through the car barn. The girls were sent in to get ready for bed and Billy came out with a flashlight to help with the sheep. It is much easier with two people.
All done now.
The coyotes are out tonight too. I hear them down in the woods all yapping at once. I was thinking of them as I walked through the darkness looking for stray sheep but they were quiet then.
No photos today. You know what pigs look like, lying in the sun under a blue October sky, don’t you? That would have been my photo. Or, a photo of my cat giving me a lazy look before she fell back asleep on my side of the bed. Maybe she is still there keeping a warm spot for me.
