Good News, All Around!

So I have some morning updates for you! First off, the ewe was standing up and walking towards me this morning! She pulled through the night and waddled down the hillside to join her fellow flock mates for early feed. She had an appetite, too. I am so happy, there's a good chance she'll pull through! She needs to put on some weight and get her immune system back into shape, but the sweet feed and antibiotics are making that happens. Thank you for your kind words and wishes!

Second! If you are coming up to the farm tomorrow for Words and Wool, dress warm and be excited for snow! It looks like (and feels like) snow around here, and it'll make the stay at the farm cozy. Remember to pack a lunch or plan to grab it at a local shop around here. We have several places just within a few miles. And if you are staying in the area Saturday night, get your tickets at the Hubbard Hall website (our little opera house in town) for a live performance by Jay Unger and Molly Mason! Jay you know from his famous song, Ashokan Farewell, made famous by Ken Burn's Civil War PBS Series. Molly plays a mighty fine Gibson J45 (What Gibson, the dog, is named after) together it is some sweet music. After the workshop at 4pm there will be a Contra Dance in town too, with Jay and Molly playing. And it is downtown Cambridge's Cash Mob day. All the local stores will be open, including Battenkill Books, for you to grab some holiday cheer at.

Healthy Sheep, Snowfall, and Fiddle Music! Welcome to Washington County this Weekend!

P.S. I slept nine hours last night. Blessed rest!

Glad to hear that the ewe is doing better. Thanx for the youtube link! I'm still plugging away @ learning the fiddle,playing a little everyday. I played classicial violin until I was 18. even though that was a *ahem* few *ahem* years ago it's hard to get that out of my brain when I play now. Main problem is playing without sheet music in front of me,lol.
