Busy Bee

Hi folks!  Sorry it's been a while.  It's been so lovely outside, I have been bouncing around like a spring lamb from one thing to the next.  Since I last wrote, a whole weekend has passed, a BUSY week at the library, and now it is almost the weekend again!  I have been thriving on sunshine these past couple weeks, and so have our gardens!  I keep meaning to take pictures to show the progress of our peas, potatoes, and broccoli.  The little lambs have been growing like weeds.  The weeds have been growing like weeds.  And I have gotten totally behind!

Here are a couple things that have been going on in the last couple days:
-My friend Anna and I had a yard sale last Saturday
-I talked to my long-lost friend Karyn in California for about an hour and a half last weekend
-I dropped off everything we didn't sell at the yard sale at the Goodwill
-I went to the grocery store for a gallon of milk and ended up buying 2 bags of cookies, a carton of cookies and cream ice cream, a pint of strawberries, and an angel food cake (noticed how I restrained myself and didn't buy whipped cream)
-Joey sheared one and a half sheep (Molly was left with underbelly wool and wool pants on all four legs)
-We took the rest of the sheep to a shearer a few towns over (he cleaned up poor Molly)
-The sheep are naked
-Joey set up a rain barrel
-Joey and I washed wool in the bathtub
-We have been picking wool when we watch Netflix
-We ordered a drum carder to card the wool into batts (those things aren't cheap! Thanks Mom for the loan!)
-Our family friend, Larry is visiting and working on re-wiring the electricity in our house and updating all the reallly old fuses
-Larry parked his camper in our yard, we are those kind of neighbors, the kind with a trailer in their yard
-Our drum carder arrived yesterday!
-The local school got out this week and the kids have been swarming the library
-I have 2 weeks to finish up work on the Summer Reading Program, Preschool Story Times, and setting up our e-reader myself.
-And probably a ton of other things that I can't remember, so let's just say I've been busy :)

This is my 199th my next one better be a good one!  Pictures, I promise!
