nothin' in particular

feeling kind of down today...a second wave depression over the reality that my friend and her kids aren't moving here this year.
mopey...whoa is me on my own on the mountain top....so i did some gardening and tried my best to enjoy the gorgeous day. Big storms keep building up in the afternoon...so yummy.

inspired by a friends passionate speech about the glory of dandelion oil...like its great for muscle pains and skin rashes...i gathered flower heads and got my own batch underway. I can't remember the last time i held a handfull of dandelion flowers...so soft...like holding a baby bird.

and yes...that is my llama frida...still here on the farm. The wonderful home i thought i had found for them turned out to be a big scammy fake. long story but i'm glad they didn't go there...ya just can't trust anyone to be who they say they are, it sucks. The rescue folks have resumed their search for a home.
Eva pup is being as brave as she dare be...sniffing llama face is scary business!

Keep your chin up Erin! Like I said before your there's a reason for you being up there, ya just have to find it!

Too bad about the llamas but better to know before hand than after the fact.

I'm sorry you are bummed...and too bad about the llamas. But at least you have the summer when there is good fodder to figure that out. Have you thought about selling them? Perhaps to some other fiber artist? Or as a livestock guardian? As far as I know there isn't much need for llama meat...is there? That's always the problem when I sell goats...if they are going to be meat or not.

I'm so sorry about the friend thing. I wish there was someone else that could come up there and stay with you.
