Decluttering away!

No pictures right now, but there will be. I found the garage!! And, can get the car in there for Jerry to work on. The horse trailer is almost full of white wool headed to Bartlett Yarns. One wall is still full of colored fleeces I need to go through and photograph... It has been WAY too easy just to open the door and put it in piles when we get home from shearing jobs, shut the door and 'forget' about it. (Not that I've forgotten. Hubby reminds often. Just when I get home from work it is either cold/hot or dark, or I am beyond exhausted!

So, that said. I have 2 long days on Monday and Tuesday, a dentist appointment on Wednesday, a steroid shot on Thursday, and maybe another long day on Friday. Short day Saturday. And, then we have a monster storm coming in, so I am NOT working in the garage the rest of the week. Hopefully I can get some work downstairs. Wash some more fleece, set up my carding area, a sewing area, and a place for all of my show 'stuff'.

Off the computer I go! Back to the bedroom. Decluttering in there as well. I joined a 40 bags in 40 days group on Face Book. My goal is 40 bags of clothes alone to go out of this house in 40 days. I met the challenge already with the wool in the horse trailer. Next will be the stash yarn....

We use chain link fence for the 'ribs'.
The pallets help save the sides from horns.

I finally got a couple of days off! But...

Isn't there always a but?!

Yesterday I packed up a couple of hundred pounds, or so, of wool to go to Bartlett Yarns. Now to get it in the horse trailer so we can see the garage again, instead of bags of wool!

Today, I go to Concord, NH for a MRI in the middle of the day. Well, that blows most of this day off... And, then at 5 pm I start drinking 48 ounces, 8 ounces every 10 minutes, of a solution to flush my intestinal system. That is because tomorrow I go in for an endoscopy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endoscopy) and a colonoscopy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonoscopy). Well, that blows that day off!!

And, then I go to work for at least 8 hours Saturday on a route I don't do often.

But!!! I have Sunday and Monday off. My plans for those two days are to finish emptying the garage of fleece. Taking pictures of the ones I have for sale and posting them.

 Need to get the heavy moving done before next Thursday. I go back to see the back doctor (https://www.concordortho.com/physician-detail/david-nagel/16.aspx) for the first of 3 steroid shots in my back. I go once a month for 3 months. Two years ago they gave me a lot of relief. This is the last time I can do this before we seriously discuss surgery...

And, the realtor is coming next Wednesday. So, I need to get off the computer, go let out and feed the animals, come in and feed me, get changed and head for Concord.

Oh, by the way, I've not been here as I've been delivering mail 6 days a week, plus 2 Sundays before Christmas, for about 4 weeks. The occasional day off I've had, I've either slept in and/or vegged out.

Hello from Ewe & I Farm!

Some of you may be aware that Jerry and I are looking to be a bigger farm. Originally, we were looking in NH. Then, we turned our search south... We found LOTS of farms in KY that we, and my daughter, REALLY liked!

BUT. Isn't there always a but?! We have to get this one on the market soon. That means lots of decluttering, re-homing of 'stuff', and wool fleeces to sell.

I hope to soon be posting fleeces to sell by the pound both here and on the fleece page, as well as Face book. If, in the meantime, there is a particular breed that you may be interested in, and only want a pound raw, let me know at eweifarm@msn.com and put fleece in the subject line. All uncoated fleeces will be $5/pound!

We have lots of raw llama for sale as well at the same $5/pound. Blacks, browns and white/cream/tan mix.

When you email, let me have your zip code, as well as what you are looking for, and I will let you know prices.

Have a fantastic day!!

TTFN.
