Relaxing Evening

My "real" job has had me really, really busy.  Working long days. . the kind of days when I wonder. .. .did I feed the llamas?  Where did I park my truck. . .. .and what day is it?????  So, as a treat, I came home "on time" . . well for me lately. . .5:30 was as close to on time as I could get. .. . so when I got home it looked so peaceful out in the back yard. .. the llamas and alpacas were either sitting enjoying the warm spring day or wandering around.  The same for the sheep.  The chickens were content to pick around the yard and the cats were lounging on the porch. . .. .so, I poured myself a glass of 101 Lakes Red, got my new book that Debbie gave me for my birthday, found a chair and headed out to the yard.  As I sat reading my book, sipping wine. .. the chickens came over to visit, the sheep came to the front of their pasture and the alpacas kept looking at me like . . is she just going to sit there???? 

Eventually, Jeff came down to relax also.  The chickens really are quite relaxing to watch.  They are very busy little critters. .. they even come when I call them.  It gave me a chance to observe all the chickens and evaluate their overall health . . .. .they seem quite content.

So, it was a nice evening and now I have 2 days off (I remember when I always had 2 day weekends), you sure take them for granted until you lose them.

So, over the next couple of days. .. .we'll plant some spring veggies, put away some Christmas decorations, dye some wool and maybe pick up some ducks and turkeys to add to the clan.. .. Sounds like a lot to do . .but I am looking forward to some fun "work"!

BTW - finished the book already . .. early this morning sometime . . .it was a good one. ..Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich.

So, I probably won't be able to eat turkey at your house anymore either....: )

Glad you liked the book!
