There are signs of spring peeking out all over the farm.

Lambs:

Piglets:

And Pioneer Celery came out of the cabin and did not see her shadow:

I think spring is really on the way, folks.  (Please ignore the weather forecast for Wednesday.  I know I am.)

I’m sorry that things have been so quiet around here lately.  My excuse is that things are decidedly not-quiet at work right now.  Unfortunately, the not-quiet work situation is going to prevail for at least another week and a half so posts will probably continue to be a little sparse until then.  By way of apology and distraction, here’s some baby lamb cuteness.

Last weekend we had one of those freak spring snowstorms that we get in Colorado.  The temperature dropped about 40º over the course of just a few hours and by mid-afternoon it looked like this.

PioneerCelery and I were at the museum and ended up lambsitting because PioneerT was concerned that Maggie was too cold out with the other sheep.

Miss Maggie had a busy day of eating lunch, exploring the cabin, nibbling on the rug, and supervising our other project for the day . . .

. . . indigo dyeing!

I’ll be doing another indigo dyeing demo with PioneerJ at the Littleton Museum’s Sheep to Shawl event on Saturday, April 16th from 10 to 3.  Stop by for some wooly goodness.
