It's Saturday May 29th and this last Monday May 24th little tiny,white Percy (new ram lamb) was born........whewwww. Arly did very well and I'm so relieved that she did such a good job. She is a wonderful mother and little Percy is such a tiny little boy. He is bouncing around the farm and doing super. I just wish she could have had a little ewe to go with Percy. I just have to be grateful that Percy is here and all is well at the farm.
Now I have to kick in to overdrive to get ready for next Sunday June 6th. Its the Strolling of the Heifers Farm Tours and I want the farm to look spiffy. Darcy, Rowan, Declan and I went to Newfane and bought lots of flowers and plants. I'm going to fill the flowerpots by the Fiber studio and my son David is going to rototill Darcy's garden.
I went up to Toby hill with my cousin Judy on Wed. to put in the garden for my little Catherine that I take care of. It was 93 degrees when we finished planting and that is way too hot for Vermont! Wed. evening we had a severe thunderstorm and it rained very hard and lots of trees were blown down and electric wires were down. On the news it said that 17,000 people were without power. We happened to be in a very lucky area and only lost power for about 2 hrs. I also have to get ready for my Tap Dance recital that is this coming Friday June 4th. I have the program done and the dance line-up and costume changes. It is alot of work and very stressful but totally worth it. The children are so excited and it is being held at the Townshend Town Hall. That is where I used to have my dance recitals years ago so its exciting for me too. Got to stop now and go get busy at the farm. So long from Maybelle MaMa.
