My 3-F Weekend
I am back from my Fun Fabulous weekend with Friends! I took pictures and will post them later. Other than the five-hour drive which is about 90% Interstate driving, it was a great escape to one of my favorite places. I was thoroughly annointed with large, wet Scottish Deerhound noses, ate wonderful meals prepared by someone else! on a porch with an amazing vista, learned how to use my on-loan spinning wheel, read more than 6 pages in my book, knitted, talked, relaxed. I was amazed it was only about a day and a half. I made it home safely with my small charge - Bartlett - a spotted moorit ram lamb. He was a very good sport about the long drive; especially the snake-like final portion of the trip. I was so anxious to get home, that it took me a while to realize that the sound I was hearing - slide, thump, clackety-clack, slide, thump - was Bartlett sliding from side to side in his dog kennel when I cornered the bends. My friend, Rosie, had everything in hand and helped me get the squirt into the hoop house, where he will be able to meet everyone at a safe distance. I had forgotten how small lambs were at this age (5 months). It was good to get home.
