Portal Pics

I purposely took the Liddy/boat/truck portal picture, but when I downloaded the other shots, I realized I had several other portals too :-).

Liddy's doing very well out in the B A R N.  She's got Blossom and Lila with her now.  Blossom is pictured here.  Lila had already headed in because it was getting hot.  

I'm toying with adding Maisie to the mix today.  Liddy needs to get used to dealing with multiple sheep and while Maisie will probably punch on her some (the little darling ;-), she doesn't have horns and might be more apt to "play" a little.  The older aunties are pretty dull I'm afraid...which is also why they make great aunties.  Miss Ewenice would be proud :-).

Look at that smushy mouth.  Sweet Daniel sleeping on his foot :-).

Poor Kate has had a rough couple of weeks.  Between the never ending thunder storms and then days upon days of fireworks (don't get me started!) she's worn out.  On an interesting note, when Liddy is with her, she's much less stressed.  Or maybe she's as stressed, but if Liddy lays down, Kate does too and that makes us all feel better.

Del Boca Vista Summer Annex.  The storms and cloud cover kept things cooler last week, but now the sun is back out and Jester is really struggling.  He's in pretty good shape in the cool, breezy aisleway, but he sure complains about having to move in here every morning.  Of course, that's after he's complained about being outside first ;-).  Those opinionated Jacobs!

Tour de Fleece Update:  I've gotten quite a bit of wool work done now that Liddy is (mostly ;-) hanging out in the field.  I have several fleeces washed and ready for the mill.  I spun some Billy Belly on the owl spindle at the house Saturday night and started Petunia on the wheel yesterday afternoon.  We have a great group checking in on Ravelry.  It's never too late to join!  Or just pop over to see what everyone's working on :-).

Weird to think of Lala and Blossom as being 'older.' They were babies just about an hour ago, right?

Oh that Liddy is becoming such a healthy looking girl, just like her aunts. Such beautiful sheep you grow there. That is what I call a supermodel. What, I think all supermodels should be wooly.

Guess how much I am smiling at 'my' Daniel's photo

So hard to see them grow up. Sheep on the mug had a lovely morning coffee at the beach. Always makes me smile

Poor Kate, Chance has been suffering too...he is better today. He heads for the bathroom as soon as it starts to thunder...and firecrackers well they must signify the end of his world...BC's can be a real PAIN sometimes....but we love them anyway.
Liddy is in the barn...way to go big girl Liddy! I hope Blossom surprises you and is a great Aunt. Poor Jester...and the summer is not over yet:(
