It's raining today, and it's glorious.
Maybe not so exciting for many people, who are just happy the flowers
and yard are getting watered. But our pasture is so dry there is
nothing there. I have to take the sheep out to the woods and sit with
them, using a trained sheepdog to keep them from wandering, just to make
sure they are getting enough to eat. This can be a good time for
relaxing and meditating, but really, how much relaxing and meditating
does a person need? I don't dare take Dane's laptop to the woods in
case it would get leaves or something in it, or get stepped on by a
sheep, and we don't have any smart phones or whatever. Reading a book
is difficult, because I don't dare get too involved in the plot lest the
sheep get too far away, and out in the road or lost in the woods.
Then I feel like Little Boy Blue
Little Girl Blue come send your dog
The sheep are in the road and the cows are in the bog.
Where is the girl who looks after the sheep?
She's got her nose in a book, way too deep.
