Sore muscles...means it's spring!

Oh friends, what 4 days of outdoor chores can do to a girl! I have been moving border paver stones and setting up new flower beds around the house. It's almost instant gratification, I mean you stand up and there's another step closer to the finish. But evenings I've been a bit on the stiff side...only when I sit down and stop do I notice the sore muscles. Sunburn too...had to wear long sleeves yesterday to cover up the red arms. The weather has been wonderful, close to gloriously perfect. Honestly I don't think you can get any better than this. About 80 degrees yesterday, no wind but a breeze cooled things off last night. Think we left the sliding glass door open all night last night for the first time since last fall. The sheep and dogs were both on the panty side yesterday seeking out shade.

Here's a sheep pic for today....just for fun. That's Leroy in the middle of the lamb pack...he's a big boy and seems to be the leader at the moment. He's really friendly, likes to come up and have a scratch behind the ears. My Texel rams are always sweethearts.


  1. I love all the pics of your babies! Do you let people come visit the farm? I've thought about calling but don't want to have you think I'm a wierd internet stalker. I just really like sheep but live in town. :)

  2. Oh, your little lambs are so sweet! I am enjoying this vicarious experience as a shepherdess by reading your blog!

    Regards, Nikki Beaumont

  3. Melissa, come visit. Lots of people do. Go to our website link on the blog and contact info is there.
    Hope I didn't take too long to answer this. I've been busy and not blogging.

  4. Thanks for popping in Nikki. The lambs are lots of fun but they grow up so fast!

  5. Makes me just want to join the bunch and do some cuddling!

  6. How are you darling Jami???

    Steady On
