My Constant Cat Companion

You know, he may be a bit of a cat-curse, but he is super loyal. He goes with me everywhere, supervises me during my chores, provides quality assurance, plays with anything that has a string on it, etc. He is my constant companion outdoors. Who needs dogs?! I have Orange the Cat for a dog!

Collards Are Up!

Wow, that only took 3 days! I planted the collards on Monday and they are already up. There are some lettuces that have emerged, too. I will get better pictures of those tomorrow.

Starting Veggies & Herbs Indoors

Well, I'm trying to get a head-start on my garden this year. I am determined not to miss a single season! So, I got some grow lights and I will be performing some experiments by starting my veggies and herbs from seeds indoors.

Collards & Black-Eyed Peas

Oh, how I miss the South! So, the only other thing I can do to keep from being homesick is cook Southern food, especially since we're up here in this bleak and bland land they call Kansas. (We haven't been impressed with Midwestern casseroles.)

When There Are Cute Ewes Across the Alley

Poor Racoon! He almost can't stand it and flirts endlessly across the alley with the ewes. There are two open (not pregnant) ewes and they apparently smell intoxicating!

Ice Storm Isaiah

Thanks a lot, Isaiah! What an ice storm! Although it wasn't the worst ice storm ever, it did knock our power out for 8 hours. We got power back on at midnight last night. Thank you, linemen!

This Afghan Took Me 20 Years to Make!

Finally! Holy sheep! It took me 20 years to make this afghan. I'm so glad to finally be finished! And not just 95% finished, 100% finished!

Happy New Year!

The sheep wish you a non-monochromatic year of adventure, change, and new grass! We are missing Mother Nature's color and vigor as we now head into the depth of winter. Throw some wool on and stay warm!
