Grapes, Harvest and lamb in the freezer

Ok, so it's been almost a month since my last post. So what.  However, it's got to be good luck or something that I decided to come back today because, I hit 7,000 page views today AND this is my 100th post.  It was meant to be :)

Anyways, we have been crazy busy here lately.  Harvest has started, and is almost completed now.  We (and by 'we', I really mean Chris) got all 50 acres picked.  No, HE didn't pick all 50, he'd only be on like the 2nd row by now after 2 weeks. There were large crews of workers that came in and knocked out 50 acres in less than a week.  

Sheep practice is in full swing, for 6 weeks now.  I think.  We are up to twice a week practices and they seem to be responding a little better to that.  They all have the potential to do well.  When they don't work towards their full potential it's a whole other story.  It can be so frustrating when you work with them week after week and they still don't give a rat's @$$ about anything you're teaching them.  I almost told a student last week to just go put her sheep back in its pen because she was wasting our time.  What, you mean laying across your sheep (literally) isn't appropriate behavior in the show ring??  I just don't understand.

I have better pictures on my camera, but I am sitting on the couch and my camera is on the other couch, and the cord is in the office.  I would have to put out too much effort to just download some pictures onto my computer, so iphone pics it is.

Only have one bunch left in the fridge.  Might need to go scrounging in the field for bunches that were missed. Love them!

This was 2 weeks ago, tomorrow, that they started.  They now look like raisins, and they have all been rolled up and will be boxed next week.

We had 2 lambs butchered 2 weeks ago.  After I didn't close the freezer all the way, and spoiled a bunch of meat, it will be nice to have lamb again.

Sheep practice.  Most try, some not so much.  What ya gonna do?

And of course, Caylob still hangs out with me 3-4 days a week. Last week he helped me do some of the laundry.
We are heading up north this weekend.  My cousin is getting married tomorrow, and I am so excited to be there for him!!  And of course, my sister, brother in-law and nephews will be there too!!  

I'll be back on monday with a new post.  Promise.
