Saturday’s storm brought twelve inches of snow to our farm. The sheep dined al fresco Sunday morning. They needed a little coaxing to leave the barn, but once outside they seemed to enjoy ranging around the paddock. I distributed hay flakes everywhere, to spread the sheep out and make them walk.
As you can see, I’m late in getting sheep coats on this group. It’s on the agenda for the week after Christmas, along with a slew of projects that are back-burnered for the moment because there’s just too much to do before the holidays. I love this time of year, but am looking forward to getting back to business as usual.
Simple activities, like morning chores with sheep, are a respite from the hustle and rush.It forced me to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this year’s first big snow. I hope you, too, are finding moments of calm here and there within this hectic time of year.
