Dave and I went to town to get some free Christmas trees. I feed the non-sprayed green color trees to the sheep who think they are candy. This makes six I’ve given them and the first three trees are almost bare of needles. The wooly fleeces are just lovely; most are at least 4 or 5 inches in length and the gray ones have silvery highlights that catch the light in a pleasing way. I’m so pleased with the sheep and the fleeces they grow; they are such a loving flock and respond well to good food, sweet water and tender care.
We’re having a quiet day and evening; Dave is making corned beef and cabbage with black eyed peas. I believe he’s hedging his bets and trying to cover all his bases. We’ll have a smidgen of sherry or B&B to toast the New Year but probably earlier than it actually arrives. My attitude is I’ve stayed up late to welcome in many a New Year and it arrived with, or without, my help. That’s good sleeping time I’m wasting waiting for what will happen anyway.
I have every intention of choosing more time for knitting, spinning, weaving, enjoying my husband, home, animals, family and friends. I hope to make wiser choices and to know more quickly when I’ve choosen poorly; to work more with the horses, to play more with the sheep, dogs and cats; to laugh more frequently, play harder and appreciate the blessings and gifts I’m given. I want to travel more with Dave, to make and build more and better memories. In short, to try and make the most of the time and the life I’ve been given. Oh, and to finally figure out how to include photos in my blog!
Happy New Year; my prayer for one and all is
Be from the Best of 2005.
