Catching Up

This past weekend was idyllic. The sun was shining and the temps were temperate. Finally the spring has come to the Ozarks. John and our neighbor spent the morning replacing the fencing on the west side of the pasture. Before, the cows would push their giant heads thru the strands of barbed wire to get to the grass on the other side. The constant pushing and shoving of their heads stretched the wire and forced the fenceposts to lean outward. So John removed the barbed wire, replaced the fenceposts, and then they strung field fencing along that west side. Now the cows won't be able to push their heads thru anymore.

Tonight when I looked out the bay window I saw two deer grazing in the meadow. Probably teenagers by the size of them. Maybe a year old. The picture is fuzzy cause I had to take the picture from inside the house and use the zoom on my little camera. But you can clearly see them. Aren't they just the cutest? Just hope they don't start eating out of John's gardens once he finishes building them all.

I'm currently knitting my fingers ragged in Round 2 of Sock Madness. Will try to post once I finish this pair...they are turning out quite pretty.

Thanks for stopping by.
