Yesterday I washed all my curtains/cafes, and the inside of the windows. Yet another project done. I HAVE to get rid of the carpet, the dust is out of control. It was so nice I even had the windows open for a bit. At the farm yesterday, I wore just a sweatshirt and jeans. This has been some winter so far. I am very grateful for that. This weekend, the plans are to vacuum out my car, set up a crate for Joe pup, and then head up to the farm and maybe do some maintenance there. Tomorrow, the plan is to work dogs with E.

I got a call my from my friend/sheep guru last night, and she said "have they started bagging up yet?" and that sort of drove it home for me. My response was something like "I hope not, they have a month to go!" I hope that everything goes as smooth as silk. I have experience calving, foaling, and even handling rodent births, but not lambs. I *really* hope one of the Border Leicesters are pregnant, because I would like to keep whatever I get from this cross with the Cheviot ram...

Well, just got a phone call and have to start the day, so everyone, have a good one!

We're in the same boat! From a new sheep owner last March to expecting lambs in April coming, I'm both scared and excited. Have fun!
