Day 289

Today we drenched (deformed) my sheep I use to train my Border Collies. Claire had pen duties today and she did well! She waited somewhat patiently for her next task!

I thought I had posted this last week, but since I didn't take a photo for this day, I'm posting this one of  Gracen and Charlea! They bring us much joy and they always love to play together!

Day 287

Mike and I visited a small old cemetery today. We were looking for a particular headstone, but we love reading each one and "imagining" the story of families! Lots of infants in this one! Many in the early 1900's around the time when my two of my grandmother's siblings died within a few days of each other from Scarlet Fever. We always look for the earliest birthdate, and this time was in 1814. Here are some of those we saw today.

Day 286

As you know I love tea cups and saucers! (Well I actually love pretty dishes!! LOL)
I recently received the newest tea cup in the exchange in which I participate. An addition to my blue and white ones! And with such pretty roses too!

Day 285

I never tire of the sunrise! A good start to the day!
