I had the day off work and it was beautiful out so I spent the day mowing the lawn, sitting with my sheep and skirting fleeces. Daisy, the kitten, is trying to make friends with the lambs (the momma sheep try to KILL her!).
Socrates doesn't seem to think she's so bad.
My problem today is: I'm quite sure that Diva is in early labor. I'm supposed to WORK. *I HATE WORK ~ IT'S SUCH AN INTRUSION ON MY LIFE!!!! * The dilemma is ~ Diva could take all day and deliver these babies sometime this afternoon or evening. She's not in active labor yet (no pawing or straining). But she IS in early labor. I know my sheep and I know when things are happening! So, do I stay home from work and keep an eye on things, just in case she needs a helping hand? Or do I pretend to be a responsible, grownup, employee and go to my job, where I am scheduled to work until 3:00 o'clock this afternoon? I could hope she waits until I get home to deliver. I could come home to two beautiful, moorit and white, HST lambs, all clean and fed. Of course, I would be a frantic, nut-case, worried, mid-wife/grandma the entire day at work. I'm thinking I would be MUCH more productive at home. I'll clean house this morning (while looking out the window, frequently, to check Diva. Maybe even skirt some more fleeces ~ it's supposed to be a beautiful day!
THANK YOU DIVA!!! ;-)
