Nothing thrilling to report just dropping by to say "howdy".
Some of you wanted my take on clotted cream from my last post so I will tell you.
I like it.
It seriously reminds me of the fresh homemade butter my Mother and I made when I was a young lass long ago.
Its good on scones, its tasty with jam on toast and as I found out this last weekend, darn nummy on french toast (although I am not sure if the cultures would appreciate smashed together as such, but thats an American for you...takes English Clotted Cream and lathers it on French Toast...oh well)
Manly and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary last week.
I cannot believe its been that long since that snowy day we said those precious words to each other in front of a few close friends and family members.
We were married up on a mountain in a Resort and we had cheesecake instead of regular cake and Manly's tie was choking him the whole time and he kept calling his wedding band his new "bling-bling".
Which he still does to this day. Because he is silly and ridiculous and mine.
Snow is melting and making mud here, which is a challenge with the sheep, most of the sheep are in the lambing sheds this time of year, but the yearlings and the bucks are still out in the fields.
The snow had to melt all at once.
Literally, one day was 10 degrees and the next it was 45 here.
Mud and water everywhere.
In fact one of the herders woke up to his Sheep Camp surrounded by a lake.
Oh! you do not know what a Sheep Camp is?
I will show you.
In the days gone by, they looked like this:
And then they looked like this:
But, most nowadays look like this:
Okay, but how do they look inside, well, some look like this:
and some more like this:
They are very warm and durable and made to withstand bumpy rides way up in the backcountry for when the sheep go in the mountains.
Here is a band of sheep we moved from one field to the next yesterday morning
So, there you go.
Now you know more than you ever would want to about sheep camps and clotted cream and Manly's Bling-Bling.
What would you all do without me giving you such useful information;)
Have a great week folks!
