Still here

Contrails and clouds in the evening sky

So, Rick is off to San Fran for a Friday/Sunday conference (International Society for Equine Locomotor Pathology; this one's on hock problems). I always think of how much I want to get done when the cat's away, but end up getting less done on my "extras" list because I'm doing ALL the chores and taking care of Brian without a relief pitcher. I do hope I can finish plying the second eight ounces of alpaca I'm working on and get it skeined and washed for delivery next week. THEN I will allow myself some "reward spinning" - perhaps those sparkly Peeper batts from Farm Witch?

Tomorrow a breeder interested in leasing Blackberry for the season is stopping by, and after her visit I will have photos to share - not necessarily of woolies!

Must run down and do chores right now. I followed your advice and put Lucille in a pen within the chicken yard during the day, moving it inside the coop at night. With more space and firmer ground (her hospital room/dog crate was lined with straw) her limp seems somewhat improved, but I have to keep a lid on her x-pen or she escapes over the top, only to be attacked. You'd think she'd learn to be content with a barrier between her and the others to keep her safe, but no.

That's it for now from . . .
