Carvin’ Time

I organized a pumpkin carving extravaganza this past weekend! We bought 25 pumpkins and plunked them down in the dining hall between brunch and dinner on Sunday. We saved all the seeds to be toasted in the kitchen for everyone this weekend!

Who ever heard of snow before Halloween? It was so pretty and crisp that it was hard to grumble too much while I hiked down the hill all bundled up and cozy.   DSCN0597DSCN0606

And then I got to wrangle the sheep into the milking parlor and milk them for a couple of hours. That wasn’t any fun in the cold, but over all it wasn’t too bad. It was so pretty watching them move around the hills to the barn that I might have even smiled a little.

Later that day I went out to feed the lambs in Greensboro. There’s about 120 of them out there and by the time I drove the twenty minutes the snow had melted and it had turned into a really pretty day. Wednesday was the last day that we milk sheep for the season, so no more early morning milkings, wrestling with udders or complications with cleaning solvents. Yes…
