How to spend a spring day.

It is hard to believe that less than two weeks ago it was snowing with overnight temps in the mid-twenties. This week we have had a much-welcomed turn of events with absolutely gorgeous weather-yesterday's temp was 84 degrees with sunny skies and warm, gentle breezes. The animals (and I) are all loving it and have been taking full advantage of the spring offering.

Cinnamon has been spending a lot of time catching up with his 'friends' of the sheepie persuasion. He prefers to do his visiting through the fence because for some strange reason the sheep tend to chase him, which he finds very seems as though the sheep have a different perspective on their relationship with Cinnamon and do not share his feelings of camaraderie.
Edrea, the ewe, has been catching up on all of the latest gossip from the chicken coop while she is waiting for her lambs to arrive.

Oh, the stories that those hens tell could just make your hair....errrr, feathers stand on end!
Edrea has also been taking some time to pamper herself so that she will be rested and refreshed when her new babies make their appearance. She has been spending time snacking with friends,
as well as taking time for that all-important back massage.

" That Edrea has certainly gotten to be quite a diva!"

As for Ande-no matter what the weather, he is always up to his usual activity.......
Stalking me!
