My Apologies

I have been very busy this past month. Getting ready for pottery sales coming up in May, getting ready for lambs coming in June. And baby chicks coming in May as well. It has been crazy. I've also been away taking several pottery courses this past 6 weeks - but you'll have to visit my pottery blog to check out:
If the link doesn't work - I have it on my sidebar in links.

I've worked a lot of overtime this past month as well. As you know, we are in a recession, and I
have really been packing in the overtime this last month to keep the work flowing at our business.
It seems to be working somewhat - but darn am I tired.

The good news is - winter seems to have finally taken it's leave. The snow is gone, the days are warmer.

The bad news is - we are now into the season of mud. So - I've had to be very selective of how many sheep could go out onto the pastures - and when.

Yesterday - we had some pretty gusty winds here - they took down the old honeysuckle bush out by the barn (I confess it wasn't in very good shape, and was dying anyway). Unfortunately - we also lost this wonderful "Huge" cedar tree out by the pond.

It split a couple of weeks ago, and we chained it back together - but the water in the pond has been so high this past year, that all the earth has eroded around the roots.

At least the sheep are enjoying it.

We've had a tremendous amount of wind damage in our woods this past winter. There have been some ferocious wind storms over the past few months - and huge trees are coming down every where. Mother natures way of changing the landscape I guess.

Well - I hope to get some good pictures of my sheep in the next few days, so I will have to post them, and I will try to keep posting a little more often. At least now that the weather is a bit better - it's easier to get outside.

Until next time.
