Monday, Monday ~

Monday isn't always my favorite day of the week but today wasn't so bad. I'm working diligently to finish the farm taxes by April 15th. I will be at the Accountants and have them done before the deadline rolls around. There always seems to be something more important to do :)

Lambing has concluded until the end of the month. We have 21 sweet little bundles of energy running around and they seem to call to me through the window to come and play with them. I spent 40 minutes at lunchtime in the maternity ward with Chammomille and her quads. They are all so healthy. She is an awesome ewe. I stretched out on the hay and before long Chammy laid down beside me. Shortly thereafter three of the quads snuggled in between Chammy and myself. What a serene experience. I laid there listening to her chew her cud, the lambs soft breathing, the sounds of the farm all around me. I could have stayed there all day.

But.............I spent the rest of the afternoon doing laundry, grinding away on paper work and made butter. I have two children with sinus issues, ear issues and allergies. As lovely as the spring weather has been, it brings it's issues with it as well.

I hope you are enjoying the weather where you are :)

Good for you for taking a moment to relax with Chammy and her lambs. It sounds so idyllic!

And then, of course, it's time to return to the 'real world'. But how blessed we are to have the opportunity to participate in those magical moments...

Good Morning Debi
its the barn just a great place to relax. I know when I had all the baby piglets coming I could loose track of time just watching and listening to them. Find i spent more time in the barn than I did the house. Your babies are beautiful,congratulations

What a sweet is an unfortunate part of doing what we love as a business, that the business end intrudes so often. I spend so many days that would be better in the barn sitting in the office staring at numbers. Glad you had the good part to help you through the rest.

That barn time is so good for the soul! Excuse me Deb, but you forgot to introduce who those very cute white and spotted lambs are????
