It's been trying to rain all morning, and cripes, don't we need it! So I hung the washing out on the line and before I could finish pegging the last pairs of knickers, down it came.
The wet washing can hang there for days if that's what it takes.
The Texel rams, Bert and Ernie, have spent a week here in one of our small paddocks near the house, to eat the grass down. Trevor has the role of companion sheep, a gentleman's gentleman, if you will, so it was lovely to have chats and chin scratches with him each day.
His merino wool is of high quality, so he more than pays his keep, which has made it easier to convince the boss farmer to keep him.
This is what he looked like then, and here is the story of Trevor
I made apologies to one of the buyers, and charged her less than the usual rate. An hour later I received a message from her.
"I'll pay extra for split crust any time. Best loaf I've ever had, reminded me of home." (USA)
Gosh, that made my day.
Aren't people wonderful?
Well, the wind is howling and my washing is probably across at the neighbour's paddock by now.
I hope you're also the recipient of a lovely word or two of encouragement today. It certainly makes each day special doesn't it? Or if you're spending the day alone, I hope you can find joy in the simple things, and gratitude for the day.
Cheers and thanks for dropping in.
