Busy and preoccupied

I am spread pretty thin these days between homeschooling, clients' jobs, dealing with garden and orchard bounty, schooling the horse I have here in training, and getting ready for a frenetic weekend. On top of all that, a certain something has my heart and mind occupied and has taken some time as well . . . but talking about that will have to wait awhile longer.

This weekend is the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. Since the sheep show is on Sabbath I'm not involved with that, but I have to run over on Friday to deliver some photographs for the photo contest, help a friend set up her booth, and pick up three pullets from her to bring back to Boulderneigh, and again on Sunday to deliver a ewe lamb to the person who is transporting her north to Franna's, pick up Browning's roving and my photos, and help someone else break down their booth. With all that, I should have lots of blog fodder in the near future!

For now I'd better get back to the salt mines. I'm headed outside to ride before dark, then will come back in to tackle the big bowl of prunes waiting on my kitchen counter. If I get done with those before bedtime, I have three photos to mount for the OFFF photo contest!

That's it for today from . . .

    1. Oh Lorie, that sauce was to DIE for! I could eat it every day; BEST way to eat tomatoes EVER. However, it was rather labor-intensive. I need a faster way to dice tomatoes.

  5. I thought as we aged, we'd become less busy.
    NOT SO! I need to settle and focus but being a person who enjoys so many things, but mistress of none of them, it's difficult to settle and focus. So, I keep doing what I do and get further and further behind -laughter-.
