Perfect Day

I'm bad for getting songs stuck in my head. Usually it's something irritating.  Really irritating. The current one though is that non-irritating Lou Reed song Perfect Day that they are using to advertise PlayStation 4.  I finally looked up the lyrics, just for curiosity, as I don't think I've ever heard the song all the way through.  I'm not sure exactly how to take it, but if you've got to get a chorus stuck in your head on a beautiful fall day, then...

Oh, it's such a perfect day.
I'm glad I spent it with you.

...probably isn't a bad one ;-).

I'd walked up to the barn to start my next winterizing project and saw the entire flock napping in front of the horse stalls.  Usually that means the gate's blown shut and they are stuck out there, because inside the barn is their preferred napping spot.  Nope.  They too were enjoying a perfect day.  I went back to the house for my camera and joined them.



Allie, Boudreaux, Ford and Henri


For anyone wondering if that lil' speckled lamb with the wrinkly nose outgrew all that.  Nope :-).


Chocula and Hershey came over and sat down next to me.  About the time they got comfy, most everyone else decided to go back out.  Chocula's girlfriend (Blossom ;-) left, so he had to go with her.  Hershey stayed with me.


Daniel and B. Willard and Graham stayed, too.  As did Keebs and Lila.


Clover pillow.


Mom pillow.

Oh, it's such a perfect day.
I'm glad I spent it with you.

Looks like a good day to sit out in the sun with the sheep.
