Out Like a Lamb...

We still have a couple of months before any lambs will be born in the Bluff Country but I am just thrilled at the wonderful weather we are having.  It's March 30th and the temperatures are supposed to be in the mid to upper 70's today and most of this week!

See all that ugly, brown grass?  It'll be green before you know it!

Sable and Zaria are enjoying the warm days.

Godiva is content growing a gorgeous fleece and waiting  for her 'Mom' to come for a visit

As for Bella and Sable...

Well, they're playing like puppies!

We all had such a wonderful visit with Katie while she was home and already miss her like crazy.  But she promised it won't be so long between visits next time and there sure is plenty of work around here to keep me busy!

DREAM says:

"Mom's going to take lots of pictures this week so that you can watch the grass turn green!  I'll try to do something cute so that Mom takes SHEEP pictures, not pictures of those silly chickens."

You don't have to "try", Dreamer.  You're always cute!


  1. I cannot believe how BIG Sable is getting! WOW! She is so beautiful, just like Bella is!

    When does Sable live permanently with the sheep?

    What happened to your old dog, whose name escapes me right now? Did she pass?

    I'm so glad that you and your family had such an amazing time. I take it for granted living within a mile of my entire immediate family.

    Can't wait to see you again!

  2. I want to come back!!! It's supposed to be 88 here already, yikes. I don't mind 88, but the fact that it's coming already the first of April makes me a little nervous for June/July/August! I keep thinking of the little moments at home that made it so wonderful, thank you again; I can't wait to come back! (And that first sheep picture is beautiful!)

  3. NEVER! Sable will probably never actually LIVE with the sheep. I love her way too much and need her in the house to keep Bella and I safe. ;-)

    But she can visit with them as often as she wants and she loves to be in with them when I'm working out in the yard or barn or garage or any of the other multitude of places that need constant work...


    Sadie (my Treeing Walker Coonhound) had to find a new home after she killed a couple of my chickens.

    I'd love to see you too, Garrett!

  4. Buongiorno, La Mia Bella Bambina!

    Maybe Pam and Ben and I can pool our money and buy you tickets to come home for your Birthday??????? The last weekend in April/first of May would be a wonderful time for you to come home again. And you'd get to spend your birthday with family for the first time in ages!

    Oh, MY! 88 is way too hot ANY time of the year! I'm wearing a tank top and shorts NOW! (This is NOT a pretty picture!)


    I sure do love my BBG ~

    Ciao, Bella!


  5. Godiva has always been my favorite.

  6. I am enjoying an early spring up here in the Northland. Did some of my spring cleanup today ~ I'm gonna pay the piper for that tomorrow, sigh, but it feels so darn good to be outside wearing shorts and a t-shirt! I think I have a little tan going on, lol. Lucy is exhausted from her busy day outdoors and like Sable and Bella, she's loving spring, too. I have a question about your sheep. Do you shear them at this time of year? Go ahead, educate me! Glad you had time with your Katie and hope she is home to see you again soon.

    Awww, Godiva, Mom will come as soon as she can to visit--I miss you, and Nancy, too. Joanna, Godiva and I think you have excellent taste...I love all Nancy's sheep, but Godiva is my baby, even though I make her comment when I visit, "Oh there's that one who THINKS she owns me" because I don't visit her and Nancy as often as I would like to.

    Nancy, way to go with your letter to the NASSA post. Sounds like quite a few agree with you, including me. I hope the Board revisits their decision and involves the membership this time.

    Glad you had a great weekend with BBG and the rest of your family. Gotta call you and catch up. Lots of travel for work lately, more to come, but by the second week in May I'll be around more. For now just call me Migratory Nomad--I know, that's redundant.

    Happy Easter,
