Each week, the plan has been to write more but life keeps interfering!
We have been busy these days, getting back into a school routine, preparing for a third cut of hay, working in wool mill, scheduling shearing for our Border Leicester ewes (first time shearing twice in one year), taking lambs to market, organizing a Fiber Arts group in our community, canning, and getting ready for a craft show! That, mixed in with the every day stuff, I have not had much time to post.
I think it is a busy time for all of us.
We are getting ready to take the lambs to the livestock sale. Some being almost as tall as the dams, they don't look much like lambs anymore, but it always a little sad, as it marks the end of another year of raising lambs.
Another shearing date has been scheduled for this year for the Border Leicester and Romney ewes. With their wool growth, we decided to try shearing them twice a year.
I have wanted to join a fiber arts group since I took an interest in spinning. I finally decided to start one myself. There have been quite a few people showing interest. Our first meeting is scheduled for next month. Wish us luck!
I am on my last bushel of pears...then on to tomatoes.
This week I will be running around doing last minute projects to get ready for our local Applefest-
I sighed up as a craft vendor with a friend of mine. At this point and time, I wonder why I did such a thing, but I am sure it will all come together in the end. I will get to spend the day talking about sheep and wool, so I am sure it will be an enjoyable time.
What has you busy this September?
