It seems that so much of our year is spent wading through ice and snow...
skies cold and grey,
earth brown and grey.
Each day passed with the promise of warmth and color to come.
That time of year seems so long... days pass slower then
(which is not a bad thing!)
Suddenly, though, we find ourselves in the midst of an explosion of color!
All of the rain of the past three weeks coupled with the recent sunshine
has brought world back to life.
Every square inch is teeming with life.
Greens, so green... almost unimaginably green.
Is it any wonder that this is my favorite color?
After the work is done...
feeding, mucking, weeding, watering, mowing...
it's time to sit and just enjoy the beauty of our world.
Puffy clouds float overhead in a crystal blue sky as I lie back with cat on lap,
surrounded by friends.
This is heaven.
This is what gets us through the cold and dark days of winter.
Do you remember a few weeks ago...
I showed you a few messy looking goats?
A couple of our goats looking as though they had fallen on hard times...
Now they are looking quite lovely...
all of the old shedding matter removed.
Dr. Becky mildly sedates these two and combs all of the shedding fur,
trims their hooves,
and just generally gives them a makeover...
these two that won't stand still for such nonsense unless under the influence of drugs.
I should be so lucky... to take a nap and wake up with a complete makeover!
