In The Fog

 Tap, tap, tap.  Is this thing still on?  I am still here...even if there's no photo evidence :-/.

"At least post a picture to let us know you are okay."  

If you think I've gone missing, check Instagram.  I don't think you have to actually be ON Instagram to view Instagram.  You should just be able to click this link or the one with 20 that stays on the right side of the blog.  

I'm proud of my IG feed.  I'm not proud of my blog feed lately...but I'm going to really try to fix that.

It's foggy here this morning...again.  We've had a lot of rain this spring and while I'll never wish away rain (a drought is much, much worse), we could use a bit of a break.  The rain/fog is not the most interesting thing about this picture though.  It's that some of the sheep went to the right side with Murphy and some went left on their own.  

I'm not sure why.  They usually stay together.  I would think the grass is better on the left, well, until you get further out on the right side.  They did all eventually end up in the paddock on the left.  Murphy's group just came in via the back gate.  It's a puzzle.  And a new puzzle :-D.

Stupid Springtime

Too much to do and not enough time to do it.

80 degrees one day and frost the next.  Luckily nothing seems to be too damaged except some asparagus.

Why do I get these ideas of new garden things I want to do each spring?  See sentence one...

This picture seemed to resonate this morning, so how about a new puzzle?

Weekend Wrap Up

 This was a busy week!  More company, more rain, more Dug shenanigans, lots of work, lots of fun.

Maisie was once again our little ray of sunshine.  This time shining in from the eastern side of the barn.

The big news was of course the eclipse.  I got scared off traveling to see the totality, but we had a good time watching it from our neighborhood.  I rode my bike with Dug and Bea and we had zero traffic issues :-D.

Frankie is fully embracing his back to work regime.

The sheep slogging out on yet another rainy morning.

Wool cats beds are just the thing for a cool rainy night.  Luckily for Archie I haven't started skirting any fleeces yet :-/. 

The redbuds have been beautiful even with all the rain.

 But finally the sun came out and Big J and I enjoyed morning coffee out in the driveway :-). 

This is Maisie's morning spot right now.  She still sleeps facing out the back door, just a bit further in the barn at night.  In the morning, if it's sunny, this is where you'll find her.

A pretty four leaf clover.

Among lots of other adventures, Dug embraced the party week and enjoyed a bonfire in the greenhouse.

And then went for a kayak ride and a float out in the pond this afternoon.

Missing are pictures of the raised bed garden area.  Sadly I forgot to take a before picture.  I can still get a "during" picture.  After pictures will be later this week....depending on the incoming rain :-/.

The 2024 Eclipse

Being a potato, Dug knew how important it was to protect your eyes ;-D.

We lucked out and the clouds were intermittent enough this afternoon that we were able to watch the eclipse.  It didn't get dark enough for the birds to stop singing and I'm not sure what the sheep and chickens did because Dug, Bea and I were over at the neighbors.  I wonder if the clouds kept things from getting too weird and maybe they didn't really notice.

Were you able to see it where you were?
