Tending fine-fleeced Shetland sheep and a whole lot more on a small acreage in the Willamette Valley of Oregon

It's a crisp, cold, starry night out there. Mars and Venus are keeping a big ol' sliver of moon company in the western sky, but they were hiding behind trees from where I took this photo:
Five more eggs today; the hens are on a roll! Speaking of baked goods, I'm thinking the sheepy girls must all have buns in their ovens based on the amount of hay and water they're consuming. Sarai and Vienna, who were in the earlier breeding group, are still a month away from their earliest possible lambing date, though. Wait; a month isn't that long, especially the way my life seems to careen along! Guess I'd better start thinking about preparing the nursery!
