Yeah, it’s 75 this Afternoon
So it’s 2012. Alright. Okay.
Pictures above were taken this afternoon. There’s a thin yellow sun, but the ol’ Olympus really didn’t care to share that fact. Looks just plain ol cloudy and raw. But…it’s not raw at all. Mid 70’s with a light offshore breeze. Not bad.
Some of the sheep are out on the pasture, finding anything green, maybe some hay on the hoof, blackberry leaves, I’m sure. Some of them are close in. Miss Holly and her lamb Mary are grazing the new rye around the gardens.
Chickens are all over creation. Charry Brown went to heaven this week, so the dynamic has changed. Up above, you see Coco Papi and Teddy. The 3rd Roosketeer, Buzzy, aka the House Roo, was, at the time of the photo, wooing Black Betty in the henhouse. Tried to get a shot but they balked. The Teeny Tinies were running around near the Hay House in the pasture. The Teenies are hunting near the sky blue barn.
I’m recording the weather for a conceptual knitting piece. Like a diary of color & texture. Not an original idea. There are a couple groups making scarves and quilts and what have you on Ravelry.
Bread of the day is Whole Wheat Molasses with Caraway Seed. Oh, you want a picture?
