Portrait of a Farmer, At Night

This little lamb slept on Joey's chest for two hours last night.  Joey fell asleep as well.  I had to take his boots off his feet.  When he rolled onto his back and stretched across the couch, the lamb curled up on his chest and kept on sleeping.  The scene reminded me of the children's book, The Sleeping House.  Curled up in the half-dark of the living room were a farmer, a lamb, and two dogs.  I read my book on the other couch with Daisy curled at my feet and fell asleep until 10:15 pm.  When we all woke up, the lamb stretched and let out a "baa" and she went back to her mom and sister for the night.
