I got home from a night shift at work late today. So I was pretty tired doing the farm chores. But then I noticed a couple of sheepy things that made me smile. First I noticed our future fleeces in the sunshine in all their variety and wooly glory.
And then Moll wanted petting for some reason.
So as I was finishing the chores I got to thinking about how much I love this lifestyle. I am much more in touch with nature, the earth, the seasons and the weather than I used to be. It is good exercise. I get to enjoy the most amazing foods and fibers. I get to meet incredible people and support a wide variety agricultural businesses. And I get to live with these wonderful animals that make me smile. This life is exhausting and sometimes incredibly sad, but I still love it. Now I will take a nap.
