A perfect day to enjoy the first day of the New Year here in the Northeast. 50 degrees and sunny. It smelled like spring when I headed to the barn this morning. Now that I'm working a full time job, the only time I see my animals during the day is the weekend. I spent a leisurely morning cleaning, moving a little snow, sharing pats and scratches with the sheep and simply enjoying being there.
We actually saw the New Year's ball drop this year. A first in a very long time. I arrived home to a lovely buffet all laid out by none other than my great kids. They have had this planned for awhile. Maine shrimp; cheese & crackers, etc. To top it off, the blender was ready to make frozen margaritas - my favorite :) Our awesome friends and neighbors, the Kimballs arrived shortly after and we all had a great evening together as we welcomed 2011. I hope the way it started is an indicator that it's going to a fabulous year for all of us!

Our new calf, Harriet, changes so much in just a weeks time. She is a beautiful chocolate brown color rather than coal black like her Mom, Hope. She lives with her Mom and the small flock of sheep that we have. It's apparent that she is quite comfortable with them. One morning this past week it was very cold when I went to the barn and they were all inside. I peaked in and there's Harriet, surround by her very own heating season. Full fibered sheep!

That's the news from here. Thanks for stopping in for a visit. I'll try to get here again next saturday for an update and to check everyone's blogs. I miss reading them like I used to :)
Have a great week everyone~
