And Then There Were None …

Ahhh … moving. The sheep left today and the chickens are going next week and we will be without livestock for the first time since we moved here. It seems quite barren and very quiet. JennietheDog seems lost without her sheep … she didn’t even perk up when I took her on a walk.
The move to Italy is still in limbo, date wise, and so in the interim I am having shoulder surgery. Major rebuilding they think although they will not know till they get in there and look around … not exactly what I wanted to hear. Nor that I will be unable to knit for several weeks.

Odd thing ... blog writer in Windows7 seems to publish my posts now ... maybe because there were no pictures yet ... not sure. This is a gratuitous lamb photo ... I miss the little guys.
The sound of the wind
In the forest behind me
A raven flies off.

I hope your surgery goes well! It will be a bummer to have to stop knitting, but if in the long run you're healthier it will be worth it. I'm sad that I never got a chance to visit you in Idaho. Maybe Italy? I'm going to the UK knit camp in Scotland this summer. Any chance you could, too?? Beth's daughter is getting married, so I'll be all alone. :-(

Good luck with the surgery! I guess an enforced break from knitting means you can put your feet up and catch up on some reading (or even learn Italian?) Once the lambs start arrivng here I'll post some pictures,to help with your withdrawal symptoms!!

This is what I get for not keeping up. Italy and surgery. OMG! I feel seriously behind. Good luck with the surgery and recovery and I'll keep reading to find out more about Italy. I may need to stock up on some yarn before you head out....
