It's pouring rain outside right now.
I was just out there feeding the animals and spent a considerable amount of time stumbling around the upper pasture trying to locate our three llamas and my pet sheep Calvin.
In the dark.
In the dark.
Stumbling because of course I didn't have a flashlight. Why would I need a flashlight when it's dark?
I mean, really?
Ok, so I'm not very bright...no pun intended;)
I also didn't utualize the hood so conveniently attached to my jacket so I am rather wet, to put it mildly.
And I gave up on trying to find the llamas and Calvin. If they want to stay out in the pasture when it's raining, they can. A bit of dampness won't hurt them and there are trees for shelter.
The rest of my flock of sheep are at a friend's house visiting his ram for a month. Sometime around April we'll have a new crop of lambs bouncing about. I can't wait:)
Alex and I had a lovely evening at a friend's Inspirational Harvest Party this evening. Taco salad (oh, yum), good fellowship, wonderful singing, and a short "sermon" by one of the dads. At least, I assume it was short - we had to leave early cause my dad wanted us home by 9:00. Bummer.
But, I had the opportunity to wear my new coat for the first time...
My mom bought me this vintage trench coat on Etsy. It's purple-ish/pink-ish. I LOVE it =D
The wonderful Christian lady who owns the shop sent such a lovely note along with it.
She lifted me up and encouraged me.
Isn't it wonderful how we're connected to other believers through Christ, even if we've never met them?
I just watched "Secretariat" again. Absolutely beautiful movie.
This is seriously cracking me up...
There's nothing more appropriate on a chilly autumn day than a hot bowl of soup. I've been going crazy making soup lately - potato, rice & mushroom, onion, and I'm going to try beet soup tomorrow night. With sour cream. It doesn't get any better than that.
Have a lovely Friday evening everyone!
Watch a fun classic film for me, ok?;)
