A very full moon is rising over our ridge. The biodynamic calendar says it was full the other day, but sure does look full now. I read online that the July full moon is called the thunder moon due to summer storms. I didn't hear thunder but I saw flashes of lightening surround the ascending moon.
There are so many things I need to write but there has been little space for writing. Lots of guests, events and more. Tomorrow morning we will attempt to shear our sheep ourselves. Maybe I can fill you in once that is done.
Meanwhile, enjoy the somewhat cooler temperatures. Here's a tip for those of you who are sweating out the summer with us: a wet bandana or dish towel to wrap around your neck at night makes a nearly 90 degree bedroom feel a lot more comfortable.
And stay tuned: more grief stories, stories about our little farm church and its first baptism out at our friends' creek, and pressure washing the rest of the barn. Haymaking. A barn full of hay. And friend visits. And a little more grief thrown in for good measure. And a very strange moon phenomena that took place on Saturday evening. Please, someone, help me understand! It descended over the ridge at a little before 9pm then sometime around 10pm it began to rise over that very same ridge. I had witnesses. What was that about???
But now, off to Youtube to revisit the basics of sheep shearing...
