Sheep shearing & Deep Fried Pickles

Interesting title right? It pretty much sums up my day!  Today was the first “official” day of my shearing season – which means… SPRING is on its way!! I know its hard to believe, but trust me people, its coming!!

As I write this cuddled up in a warm blanket, Glee playing on netflix (guilty pleasure), and my dog Cash trying to drool on my keyboard – I really need to believe Spring has sprung.  We did have that time change last week right?? Or was I dreaming?

It has been one heck of a long day – the job was 2 1/2 hours from home, which meant we had to get up at 4:30 AM (on a Sunday…) to get there for an 8:00 AM start.  We sheared 42 sheep – Shetland & Blue Faced Leicester – absolutely gorgeous fleeces for those who know.   I’m sure they are really hoping for a shift in the weather as well.

Before the PETA people have a panic – these sheep are in a very warm barn and are well cared for. 

My awesome Mom who took care of my dogs today while I was away took us out for dinner – to this little outdated restaurant that serves the BEST deep fried everything.  The pickles were the best… they always are.  Back on the good nutrition wagon tomorrow – it’s almost time for the beach!

  1. I miss working with sheep. We had rideau arcott (sp) and these weird furries brown ones that begin with a “k”.

    Deep fried pickles are delicious, but my heart will always be for the deep fried zucchini.
