Sheep Wake-Up Call

Sheep Wake-Up Call

View from the front door

After a night punctuated by Waylon’s crying–he’s teething and the worst of it seems to be when he wakes up at night–we slept in a bit, lying in bed even as the light began to sift through the cupola windows.  The dogs barked a few times, and they reluctantly laid back down when we told them to stop.  When I finally got out of bed around 7:30, I looked out the door and said to Edge, “The sheep are up here!”

They stood looking back at me, then discovered a box of apples that had never been fed out.  I put on my boots and a vest and walked out into the mild morning, the gray sky a soft welcoming to the day.

    Hi Dear Katie and Waylon and Edge, Love this post. It feels like after all the business FINALLY it’s winter and we can stay in. I slept until 7:30 today, too, which felt luxurious (but I wasn’t up with a teething baby all night). Mainly I’m writing to let you know about Christmas dinner. I had some friends over to “my” new place in Wilder outside of WRJ, and we had leg of lamb from you. This recipehttp://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/rosemary-and-garlic-roast-leg-of-lamb-recipe/index.html and your lamb. It was delicious and the air was filled with gratefulness for 2 dear young farmers, the land, this life. And the lamb! Love you, claudia
