On The Farm and In My Studio

View from my studio window

I kept my door closed and Fate in my studio.  Snell was here this afternoon working on our septic system.  They had big trucks all over the yard, gates open and lots of digging.

Zip and the hens went into hiding while they were here.  Even the sheep and donkeys kept to the barn.   Until Harold needed to take his tractor  through the barnyard and into the North Pasture.  Then I moved the sheep and donkeys into the South Pasture.

They got the work done in the dog yard but  are coming back on Saturday to finish up in the pasture.

I was working on my Crow eye which took more time than I thought it would.  It’s small and dark so hard to sew.  I tired it on my sewing machine, but that didn’t work.  It just didn’t look right, then light in my sewing machine blinked off and I couldn’t see a thing.

So I worked on it by hand.   I still don’t have it just right.  I should probably let it go for a few days and get back to it, but I I have a hard time doing that when I’m trying to figure something out. I’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow.

When I woke up this morning I clearly saw the crows lets and feet in my mind and what they would look like.  Perhaps the same will happen with the eye.  I think I’ll stack some wood this evening, that will help clear my mind.

Next week Jon and I are going to Vermont for a few days.  He is dropping his computer off with MacNurse a company that will replace the hard drive, essentially giving him a new computer for much less money.

It will take two to three days and since it’s a few hours away we decided to stay in Vermont until it is done instead of traveling back and forth.   It’s been a while since we had some time off and we’re both looking forward to it.  We’ll be back on Wednesday, but it’s the longest we’ll be away from the farm in years.

We’re both ready for a break.
