You know those weeks you have when the best part of it was when it was over? I'm happy it's it's Sunday night and that tomorrow is the beginning of a new week.
I have a long list of things I want to get done before kidding and lambing starts. Our pygora babies should arrive around the first week of March. I'm beginning to check and replenish lambing supplies and I always have sheepy help in the barn. These are my two best girls, Chammy and Pennyroyal. No matter how lousy I feel, they love me and are always happy to see me for a snuggle and a chin scratch. They will not be lambing this year. I decided after five years, they have earned a year off. Both of them have either given us triplets or quads since they started having lambs. I just love these gals and I'd like them to be around a good long time. They were trying to get those noses in my coat pocket, looking for animal crackers, their treat of choice :)
We had to make a run to town and while we were there, we stopped at the bookstore. A favorite stop for all of us and not one we make often. I found this new magazine and thought you all might be interested. It's called Mary Janes Farm. This issue is devoted to Bee's. Everything bee's as well as no-knead Artisan Breads, Bee mind homemade valentines, etc. Lots of fun and interesting things.Some of the articles are a little fussy and won't apply to everyone and it's totally organic. Good reading. Check it out :)
