    I was watching some videos wherein folks were grabbing sheep like that, inserting their thumb in the corner of the mouth in the gap where there are no teeth. With my clumsy luck, I'd get my thumb bit off. :rolleyes:

    Everything! This beautiful place at which I live, the home God provides for us, the comfort we have around us, the changing of the seasons, the time I get to spend with grandchildren and my children....I'm completely blessed in that!

    Life is good, God is great and I am so very thankful! :celebrate

    Mission complete, and it was soooo much fun!:celebrate It was great to put more faces to the names, hear their voices, and see the homesteads first hand! :clap
    God provided all, but specifically cool weather, minimal traffic, little construction (in August!!), and safe travel throughout. Each day started and ended with prayer and gratitude, and the long days of travel were filled with teaching and preaching cassettes and music.
    Maybe by next spring, I'll be ready for sheep of my own, and can get one lamb from @Farmfresh and one from @Beekissed to start my own little flock here. It will be fun to see where this all leads. :weeeI'm sure this journey isn't over yet just because I'm back home.

    My family has long quoted the second line of this little poem about me wandering around the countryside. It fits me well!:D

    "All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
    (J.R.R. Tolkien)

    I am thankful for being at the right place at the right time. I was at a common box store who shall remain nameless, perusing the seasonal discounts in the garden center. Spied a box of seeds on a shelf, and asked about pricing for them. Was told that manager said to give them away b/c they missed the round up for the send back to the seed company. So... I pawed through them, and picked up about a dozen packets for next season's garden!
