I am in shock

New England has lost a great man this week. David Hinman died of a heart attack while shearing sheep. As my husband said, "He died doing what he liked. I couldn't ask for anything better for myself."
David had been teaching my husband different shearing techniques every time he sheared for our friends in Newport. He was such a laid back man, who was full of all sorts of information.
He will be missed!

Stash clean out



More pictures will be at the fleece page, but this is just a small temptation of what is coming...
This is llama from my stash that I'd like to sell. The bags will be sold as is, but for 1/2 price, plus priority mail shipping!

So, go check it out. http://eweifarmfleece.blogspot.com/

A day off!!

Everyday since May 4th has been busy, busy, busy!!! I have a day off to myself today and what am I doing? Laundry. It has stopped raining long enough to at least get some done... Cleaning our bedroom and putting away the laundry that had been washed & folded, but just stacked here and there. Playing games on the computer...got to take a break occasionally. And going thru boxes and space bags and throwing away or putting away stuff! I can see some of our bedroom floor now.
I am also going through the guest room (formerally the wool room) and sorting and moving stuff from there. All the wool 'stuff' is going to the basement. Someday I hope to have the shop setup in there and the fiber mill. But for now the shop, when open, will be called a farm stand. (o; Town rules.
It will be nice to have the main floor of the house be living quarters, and the bottom floor/basement be the business part of the farm. The dehumider (Thank you Valery and Paul) had be going for 3 days straight, and is finally taking long breaks. So, it is very nice to have a dry basement. (For those of you who don't know, 2 sides of the house are built into the hillside. When it rains, it can get damp in the basement. We had mushrooms growing in there last year...)
When I can get my photo program in the 'new' computer, I will take pictures to post here. But, in the meantime, back to work!!

Hello all!

I apologize for not updating my blog in the past month. Shearing season has been extremely busy and we thank EVERYONE who has hired Jerry!! I have today off and really, really need to get my garden in...

Things should get back to normal soon, and I will update when I can. I also need to get the 'new' computer up and running as the Dell is on its last legs. )o:
