This is a mixed up jumble of stuff. Since early May I have had on my "wrecking hat". I moved our bedroom and back room into the other rooms of the house. We sleep in the dining room. Then, I gutted those two rooms. They were a big bedroom that you entered from the dining room and beyond that a small room with a closet. The closet was added later. From the bedroom you could go outside to the dog yard. BUT........someone in their great wisdon decided to "enclose" that, and I use that term loosely. It leaked and was just a "rat trap". The two rooms are gutted except for the studding between the bedroom and the back room and the built in "wardrobe" which I may tackle when I don't feel like I have been run over by a Mac truck.
Yesterday I sheared two sheep. YAHOO!!!!! When my shearer gave me insufficieint notice that he was coming the day after tomorrow, two sheep could not be "rounded up". I finally got them caught and put into the barn with my new sheep before all the hot weather came. Since the barn is below ground level on one side, it is cooler than baking out in the ewe pasture. The shearing job stinks, but it is done. Although it hurts today, all the girls are outside today. I am inside licking my wounds. The tumble I took when we were just about to the sheep shed, really left me with some aches and pains, but they will go away.
Just thinking, I now have sheep from Nancy K, Tammy Mulder, Stephen, Karen Valley, Juliann Budde, and Becky Utecht. There are 20 sheep now. That should be a pretty good foundation. I will use the ram from Karen and a ram out of Tammy's ewe next fall on the ewes from Juliann and Becky. Hopefully next spring I will have some lambs again.
