Whoops

Greetings from the land of computer woes.  I managed to "brick" my desktop computer the other day. We had a feeling that was fixin' to happen so had just purchased a new laptop - not set up yet.  I could bore you with all sorts of software issues and choices and how the heck do I get this to work, but I won't.  Instead, I'll share a Liddy woe.  Much cuter!

I got so far behind this spring that I never shared any pictures from shearing at Kathy's.  It went fine. The weather was nice.  We had good help.  Kate worked in the pens.  There was a movie crew there and a reporter from the Lexington newspaper.  Interesting stuff.  I think I got some fun pictures. What can I say...it was a long, kind of tough spring.

I'd been thinking about doing a run of yarn from those ewes.  Those ewes that I've helped take care of for several years now.  Many I recognize as they come through the shearing chute or deliver their lambs.  Some are lambs I've played with and photographed who are now mommas themselves.  I would enjoy yarn from them as much as from our flock.  Karen and I brought home a big bag of wool.

Flash forward about three months and I'm finally getting a chance to sort through the fleeces...and one of those ewes' lambs has just discovered the wool bag jungle gym.  She jumped on and off, pawed the bag, grabbed wool from the holes, would lay down, jump back up, jump around some more...




And then the inevitable happened ;-).


"Uh oh..."




"I meant to do that!"

She's got a little padding on her. Hope only her pride was scraped a little.

Good thing she has a chubby bottom to land on. She is going to be a big girl. Into the barn soon?

That's a lot of wool! Liddy is getting to be such a cute butterball, of course she is going to play with all that wool if you give her a chance, she thinks she might find one of her friends in there.

Best play toy EVER!

Reminds me of a parody of a children's storybook with the refrain that goes," one little monkey (sheepie) jumping on the bed. She fell off and bumped her head. Momma called the doctor and the doctor said ,"No more monkeys (sheepies) jumping on the
bed !"
