Good Morning!

During the shepherding workshop at the Rhinebeck Blues party two weeks ago I had a someone ask if I could describe my day. Fun question! The first thing I do is grab a cup of coffee and go out and check the barn. 

Sometimes I take a "Good morning!" picture from the porch as I'm heading out. This foggy morning everyone was sleeping in so there wasn't much to see other than fog.  Once I got to the barn though, there were more fun pictures than would be polite to post on IG, so I picked my favorites to share here.



Jared (aka Big J) and Cheeto, the "power couple".




Big J on my right...


...and Cheeto's lamb, Big Moose, on my left.  I'd like to say Jared has taken Big Moose under his wing like a kindly father figure, but in reality Jared caught Big Moose making googly eyes at Blossom last week and "set him straight" on who all the 'wimmens' belong to in this flock ;-).  Boys...


"Yeah, um, the last thing you need is some coffee!"


Good morning!

We ended up having a really fun Hug a Sheep Day Party :-D.  Amy (Auset Images) came down and took a bunch of pictures which she is working to put into a gallery for us and Benita Story (The Fiber Pusher) took some fun video that I'll share as well, hopefully tomorrow.

Now...it's time to go back out to the barn and start morning chores.  From there the day frequently becomes a surprise ;-).

Wonderful photos and I especially like the close ups. I begin my day with you too but I'm sure not as early.

I couldn't agree with you more, Michelle! Frankly, I'm trying to take my rector's advice and ask for strength equal to my tasks and challenges...

What wonderful photos (they always are) - A morning greeting by Big J and Cheeto - who could NOT smile at that! Big Moose asking for coffee - who could not LAUGH at that? And Big J telling young Master Big Moose who's first in the hearts of the ladies - oh, where is my haha emoji!

I am stealing that line "from there the day frequently becomes a surprise" I love that! I would say my days are like that as well! Will I sub, will I bike or ski (come on snow), will I knit, read, or write, or will "SOMETHING" come up that is a surprise rather than a &^^$%$^%$^&^*(*&^%$# moment!

Love the photos and a little walk through your day!
