07:20, 70F, clear. roosters crowing. golden sunrise. 2 does and a yearling in cactus field. guardian in yard, pup wants to play. washing clothes. raisin muffin with blue-cheese for breakfast.
09:30, 80F, blue sky, sunny. today was a proofing data day. 'nuff said..
14:20, 90F at back door. guardian met me at the gate. pleasant walk down lane with pup. tried to stay in shade. pup wanted to lie in sun.. wash dry. clean, line-dried sheets tonight! hope there's no ants.
19:00, 84F, sun slowly sinking. got 0 eggs. unloaded feed. hay to all herbivores. big ram still chasing some skittish ewes and pounding the young ram. breeding season began late, early august, this year. between ranky hay last winder and getting sheared a month late, ewes lost weight and cycled late. a lamb in december, when lambing usually begins, will be a surprise. expect most lambs in january.
20:40, 78F, a haze. pallid sunset earlier. waxing crescent moon above the palmettos. stars dimmer tonight except in the north where the dippers, casseopia, and the north star are visible. some planet hiding behind the oaks in the west. a NE breeze refreshes the evening walk down the lane with pup. guardian with sheep. dixie grumbling under house.
