Current lamb count: 6. Sets of triplets: 1. Sets of twins: 1. Girls: 3. Boys: 3. Number of BB's babies who refuse to get with the nursing program (like, at all): 2! Number of hours I slept last night: 3 (from 11pm - 2am). Number of pregnant ewes remaning: 17. Spaces currently available at the Bonding Suite Inn: 2 (with two more under construction).
Sometimes I'll take a picture and then zoom out so you can see the whole scene, which is often amusing and usually involves dogs. (If the whole scene includes a big mess, like say, the other half of the kitchen counter on which I'm photographing a recipe, it's too scary to zoom out.)
I've been calling these photos And the whole picture when I post them, and a look back through the archives tells me that there are already eight in what what I'm now officially declaring a series.
Want to see what they are so far?
