Half Way

 We are half way through lambing. That is, half of the ewes have had their lambs. The ewes were with the rams for about 6 weeks so theoretically, there could be a six week lag between first and last lamb. It isn't usually how it works for us and I hope it isn't the case this year either because it really is better to have them all at a similar stage at the same time. It just makes stock movement and care more simple and less stressful. The rest of the ewes look close to lambing so fingers are crossed.

I couldn't resist a lavender and bee picture. They are just working so perfectly together right now.

I have noticed I haven't been posting much in the way of cooking lately. That is most likely because dinners have been quite simple affairs because of the busyness. Something that can be made in the crockpot or prepared earlier in the day and just assembled easily at dinner time. Baking (apart from the high tea) has been just old faithful recipes which never fail. No time for testing and tweaking this week.

The last few nights I have really been so tired at bedtime. I like the feeling of being tired from working doing things I love to do. The income is terrible but the rewards are amazing.

You sure have been busy over the last few weeks. It is the best time of the year. Great photos, as always.
