Good Fences...

....make great neighbors,


and a nice little barrier for sheep that like to be helpful when I steal a moment from life for a few stitches,


Hope you day is filled with Love and Kindness,
~Joan

A Hike in the Woods...

....with the visiting summer teens.










Dark Hollow Falls, Shenandoah National Park


Such an amazing time with these two loveliest of young ladies.


Happy Sunday,

Copper Fox Distillery

Just over the mountain from the farmhome, in beautiful Rappahannock County, Virginia,




 lies Copper Fox, producers of Wasmunds spirits.


The River District of Sperryville provides another great place to take guests. 



The complex that houses the distillery was once an apple processing plant.


It now houses several other businesses including a fabulous antique shop (where I have come home with quite a few treasures), and a much anticipated brewery.



Farewell Wilhelm. Safe Travels.


We will take good care of your daughter for the rest of the summer.
Next time, bring the whole family!

For Our Family in Germany...

We are taking good care of our visitors from the homeland.



Showing them the sights,



A few driving lessons of all sorts here and there,




A bit of mischief (some that will not be posted about!),


and the always popular continuation of the booze tour.





Silverback Distillery 

Who will come over next?

How to upcycle wine corks!

Sheep Shopping, the Sequel

                                                      I meant to come home with only one.

Introducing Jeremiah MacCloud 

                                    But...

Meet Carnie. His roots are gray!
How could I resist that face? And just think how pretty that future cardigan will be.

                        Not to be outdone, the husband claims that red stuff keep following him home.



It seems we have a bit of a healthy competition going and I am behind.
Sheep shopping just may turn into a  trilogy.

Good Fences

....were made to be climbed.




Because that's what boys do.
When they are not making mud, 


I didn't know they knew how to turn on the hydrants.

or playing with animals,

I have the friendliest sheep.





or exploring their world on their own, using their imaginations and enjoying the bonds of brotherhood.

And making a Marme and Papa very happy.
