Summer Break has Ended

As you all have noticed I took a long break from blogging.

I had to. It was necessary to maintain the rather tenuous grasp I have on what is left of my sanity.

Much introspection and over-thinking has followed. Compounding this absence is a profound iPhone addiction to Facebook which eliminated any urge to blog. I could be outside, surf FB on my phone. Even in the middle of the pasture while moving sheep. Absolutely positive the last thing I wanted to do was to be locked to my computer for any length of time. Yuck.

Then my favorite lens of all time Is dying a slow and painful death. Which has put my photography goals out of whack. In addition to just pissing me off to no end.

August has been busier than a cold virus on a toddlers nose. We held a small trial at our farm at the beginning of August. Have worked close to full time at the farm on other projects.

A new llama arrived. Then she and Jim needed to be sheared, trimmed and vaccinated.

Then we have had the cougar attacks. Followed with working with Fish and Wildlife attempting to trap the cougar which has been leaving a trail of dead livestock behind. Unfortunately we didn't catch anything in the trap other than Beth.

New sheep arrived.

Have been working on obtaining a 110 acre hay field for future trials. Had to mow our pastures and the one across the street.

Just normal stuff.

Birthdays, baby time, dog time, friends and a couple parties. I was too tired to blog.

Now I think I have some happiness back. Ready to blog for me. I will need it to look back on when I am to far gone with dementia. Will be nice to have some memories that will make me giggle, wipe the drool away, and remember that once I had the time of my life.

Oh and the cool new Blogger iPhone app. Now I can blog from my phone. Yippee!

It is good to be back. I missed ewe.

Ah! Thanks for mentioning the iPhone Blogger app... I was just thinking yesterday while I was folding my laundry (ick) that I could get a lot more posts accomplished if I had the Blogger app for my phone. Then I must have farted and forgotten about it. Needed that prod!

Wow, you have had one busy summer! Sorry about the cougar! I haven't seen one here in a while, but know they are always around. Will you be breeding the Llama's or are they 'watch dogs?' Wish I had an iPhone, but no service up here....sigh. Hazards of living in the 'boonies'. I am a new follower, so I am glad to have you back! Cute pic of sheep love. xx

Welcome back! It does sound like you've had a busy summer. The good weather has been a plus! Hasn't it only been a year since you leased the property, and you're already having trials? Wow! That's impressive! I look forward to pictures of the new Llama and results of all your hard work!
