Sunday Stills - Sunrises Or Sunsets

The other night I was mowing the back field up near Stella's house as the sun set. Looking down from "the hill" across our farm and our neighbor's farms I thought, well, I've got Sunday Stills wrapped up for this week.  The sun set as a brilliant orange red and the "valley" was golden.  So pretty.

I watched the skies (and the Weather Channel ;-) throughout the week and it looked like Saturday evening would be perfect.  We had a long day working though, including laying over 45 square feet of brick walkway/patio areas, and I was beat...and with a good hour of clean up and evening chores still to go.

I love how the sun sets through the side door of the sheep shed.  The sheep are in the side field right now too and that's a pretty spot as well and close at hand.  Sun setting on a sheep's back is just a different kind of sunset.  I'll make it up the hill another day.


I'm not sure if you can see all the bugs floating about.  The birds sure do.  One of my favorite parts of the day is watching and listening to the birds finish up and settle in for the night.

Elizabeth, watching the sunset from inside.  She eats her dinner (she's very old and gets to come out in the barn aisle and eat) and then tootles off to bed.  Peabody and Jester (two other oldies who eat with her) sometimes stay in...and sometimes head back out.  You never know about the boys, but you can set your clock by Elizabeth ;-).

I just played catch up on your blog. I was thinking yesterday how I haven't done any spinning in probably a year and that maybe I'd just sell it all. With moving and building the house it's been put on the back burner. And I'm horrible at plying. But you encouraged me in one of your posts to actually use the yarn. I've never finished one thing I've made with my own hand spun yarn. Hopefully this winter I'll give it a try.

And the bells are adorable. I hope they work out. I don't have a bell on my dog but I have two tags and they clang around. He's a small dog. Well, a couple of weeks ago I forgot I let him out with us ( because I was stupid-tired) and he ran off. I kept calling for him and looking and before I found him, I heard the tags clang when he shook. Comforting sound.

Your Sunday stills are beautiful.
