Pretty Soon

Pretty soon Sal's eggs might hatch, pretty soon I will be teaching 2 full weeks of fiber camp, pretty soon some of the seeds I planted will be popping up, pretty soon Summer will be here, pretty soon Lyndy will be living in her tiny house, pretty soon Beverly will be moving.

After Sal's misfortune with her first nest this Spring, she decided to rest and then lay a few more in a nest in the goose run.  She is so smart.  Now I do not have to worry at night.

One week of fiber camp, 11 are signed up and the other has 7 or 8.  I am excited!  Many campers will be returning and a few new ones will be coming.  With Beverly moving, I have another friend helping with the teaching.  The kids and I will really miss Beverly but we are excited for her or at least I am, the kids don't really know yet.  Rosemary was here for a week and we dyed some brilliant fleece.  We have more different clean fleeces available to us (for fiber camp) than usual and plenty of it, so we will have some BIG fun.

The rain is no longer a regular daily occurrence so I have been having to water the seed I planted.  I appreciated the free days I got in the beginning but the flower seeds can use some sun too.

It feels like Summer already, since the rain stopped and the temperatures have been climbing into the 80s (ugh).  Lyndy's tiny house is getting closer to being finished every week.  Now that we know the weight is O.K. it is full steam ahead.

In a way it seems like May has been here for a long time but on the other hand it seems like the days are flying by.  And when I look at the blogs I have written in May I wonder where I have been.  Good thing there are 5 more days this month.

Tiny House has an Adventure

Look where the tiny house is.  The Maure River Bridge.  Lyndy's tiny house went for an adventure yesterday.  It went to get weighed and get it's trailer inspected. 

The weight is fine So we can continue to build.  It was a little  scary the first mile and a couple of bends in the road after that, BUT then we relaxed and took it all in-- Lyndy's house traveling down the country roads.

So sweet!

I thought as technology advanced things were suppose to be simpler and better.  Not so with the way I have to get the photos to this blog now.  At least I can have photos again.  The above is a piece of felt I made a couple of weeks ago.

Lyndy's tiny house is looking even more beautiful.  It is even further along than this.  Now that I have figured out how to upload pics with the operating system, I will put the new ones up..... AND here they are.

Lots of electrical outlets.  They say you can never have enough.  I guess you don't want to run cords in a small space.

Check out the oak counter top in the bathroom.  Just enough room for a toothbrush.  To the right of the sink is a water tank with a clear strip to check the level of water.  Hopefully this tank won't be used much but it is a good idea to have it.

Finally pictures of the sheep after shearing.    What gorgeous sheep! Above is Gretta and below is Rosa.

Look how black Annie and Sarah look after shearing.  And I think the white sheep is Amelia.  It is hard to tell Amelia and Norma Jean apart when they have short fleece unless you are close to them.

Cirrus and Eloise seem to be together all the time and Sal wanders on her own sometimes of late.  I am not sure why that is.

The chickens are so curious about everything.  They go in the tiny house and today one even came in the fiber studio when I was cleaning up.  They put on so many miles in a day.  If I followed them around all day, I would be exhausted,
