Life is Oh-So-Very Good in the Bluff Country...

I let the ewes out into the big pasture.
Just so that Katie would have something to look out at when she sits in her swing in the backyard.

The sheep were delighted to get turned out into new pasture ~ even if everything IS still brown and not so lovely...

And a little cool, Springtime weather wasn't going to stop my Beautiful Baby Girl from sitting in her favorite spot, with a glass of wine and a good book, and enjoying being home!

It may look prettier, later in the year, when the flowers are blooming and the grass is green.  But my BBG snuggled into her wool jacket and a scarf & mittens ~ draped a home-spun, handknit shawl over her lap and made the most of being home...

Today, we're heading into town to have lunch with My Princess and Ben (who forbids me to use his nickname on public forums!) and then Pam & Katie are taking my Grandsons out of school for the afternoon and going to a movie while I get some shopping done.

It just doesn't get much better than this!

DREAM says:

"Did you see that?  Mom didn't even mention the chickens!"

We don't need to tell Dreamer that Katie and I moved a newly hatched clutch of chicks out of the incubator, into the brooder in the living room last night and then sat and watched a wonderful  movie (The Blind Side) and adorable baby chicks! 



  1. How wonderful! Enjoy your time with your beautiful family : ).

    My BBG is coming home this Wednesday with her new hubby. Isn't is great to have them home again? Enjoy!

  3. I think I love that photo of Dream! We have a swing here too and I'd love to swing on it!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all. I loved the blind side movie too :) Great picture of Dream.

  5. What a beautiful, restful reading spot your BBG has!

  6. It was WONDERFUL! Flying away today was considerably less wonderful. Thank you for the movie nights, and yummy dinners, and playing with chicks, and watching sheep, and snuggling up to home made shawls. I can't wait to come back :)
