- things don't always look so sunny. Sometimes, I close my mind to that little voice in my head. The one that told me a week ago that Maddie Mor's lamb was dead. Sometimes I give in to my own inexperience and listen too much to other's opinions - and oh my, how they vary.
Sometimes I need to insist on expert assistance,
And sometimes the arrival of the first lamb isn't quite how I imagined it.
Sometimes I wonder just what I am doing here.
But then - the sun rises on a new day... and I know.
Maddie Mor's lamb had indeed died, and was removed, by the vet, as she had been unable to expel it herself. She is doing well now and will hopefully recover and try again next year. We suspect there has been some butting going on, and this has resulted in the death of Maddie's lamb. James actually refers to one of the sheep as Butthead.
But this morning, as I opened the blinds in the living room, I saw Calumina (Butthead) herself, just getting up from the ground. By the time I had watered my tomato plants on the window sill, she was licking a little woolly white bundle. I pulled on my wellies and coat and rushed out, still in my jammies. A little boy lamb - still wet from his birth. Perfect. Tomorrow is indeed another day.
