Sheep Shorn, Slippers Felted, Fellowship
The sheep are always fun to visit and it was a much warmer day than last year! Still, there was a chilly breeze that apparently brought us the beautiful weather of today.

Even babies are being born already, which serves as a reminder of what’s to come in our lives. Not that looking down isn’t enough…

Leviah got a lot more out of it than she did last year & Naomi was asking such great questions! It’s amazing how much our own children have changed since the last shearing. 

It was nice bumping into friends while we were there…

Back at the homestead there was napping, finishing up these slippers for Naomi, and then having friends over for great fellowship and study. I’ll admit that I wasn’t really in the mood for company, but our conversation was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits. Delving into the depths of the scriptures and our faith is like deep meditation, and even when we can’t answer every question definitively, just opening our spirits and having friends to do that with is like water to a dry soul. Not that I’m particularly dry, but I was very thirsty yesterday 😉

& one last time to remind you of the giveaway. & to warn you that the nesting has apparently kicked in full force and I’ll have a few more complete projects to share this week!

    Looks like you guys had a good time! Wish we could have been there.
    The slippers are very cute, they kinda remind me of Aunt Ethel slippers!
