And what do we do when we call friends over? Eat!
But what happens when the Vicks sit down to eat? Lambs!
It's Tilly! Anna's bottle lamb (I.V. recipient even) from two years ago. So this is her first set of lambs.
More tourery tour tomorrow I am sure. We are expecting the end of our sunny run and back to warmer rains. I was digging drainage ditches by the barn today. But I did come down here to get a little work done in each garden today, kind of a check up on things.
Even snuggled some of these furry beasts over the gate today, I asked Ivan if the constant drone of Country Western music from the barn made him feel more like a horse. I believe he answered yes.
I'll have a baby announcement of some sort for sure tomorrow, even if the the sheep do not cooperate with our desires and have some lambs before the rain starts up again, I've got a back up just in case.
Have a good evening Dear Reader. God is good all the time! All the time! His goodness doesn't take a break.
Wait, I got off track of what this post was about. Well besides the fact that Bet and I are the resident slaves today and others are off goofin'. I was wanting to just tell you about the greenhouse plans.
This would be looking lengthwise down the front of the Hothouse. Once all the stumps are removed and as they clear the spot for the building I am hoping that they will begin a nice long berm here between the driveway and the Hothouse.
The design calls for a three foot knee wall that we won't be glazing because I will be using benches for my starts not the ground (a bit of a look to the future when things might not bend so well, like my body for instance).
It would be nice to have the berm for extra insulation and I also plan on having it be a new asparagus bed. I used to have asparagus. It has been a long long time since my asparagus bed became a back lawn.
Anyway, that is what I've got goin' in my brain for Dirt to build for me next month, all while lambing too. Not sure if he plans on just getting a dozer in here and do the work himself or have a operator do it faster and more efficiently. Sometimes it pays to have things done. Likewise with framing out and building my building, but then there is the flip side of the dwindling stack of money we didn't have to start with.
Well it is warm outside now and duty calls. Out to move some roses that are in the way of some future-future building plans and plant some of my things that have been in holding for a while. Ohhh that means I have to decide where things will permanently live....
Toodle lou Dear Reader. I'll be back in when I am exhausted but hopefully not to exhausted to catch up on my reading about all of your adventures. The last couple of days I keep getting thrown off track. What else is new eh?
Sometimes it isn't me personally that gets thrown off the work wagon but other family members, like Anna and Bet with a couple of non-resident bummer lambs to try and revive to no avail yesterday. But someone gets thrown and everyone seems to get thrown.
But no worries, what gets done gets done and the rest, well heck Dear Reader, that's what God made tomorrows for.
