Three lambs were born at the mill on April 3rd.

I got to hold the white one when she was two days old. She was about the size of Scooter, but a little lighter.

There are also a bunch of baby chicks.

As I was taking pictures of the lambs, Molva, the resident pet chicken, came over. She's quite photogenic. It almost seemed as if she was demanding to have her picture taken.

Work has been going well. I'm primarily working with the spinning frame. It spins roving into a single piece of yarn. (Many yarns are plied, which means there are more than one single spun with it) The machine also puts a second twist into the yarn.

The mill is an excellent place to work. It's beautiful out there to boot.

And now for the Scooter report. Scooter has been all over me when I come home from work. I'm sure I smell rather interesting to him. Recently after taking the laundry out of the dryer, I dumped it on him. I don't think I've ever seen him so satisfied.

Looks like a dream job to me!

It's a lot of work and tires me out, but I'm really enjoying it.

Aww the sweet little babies! Is that the area to the right of the (awfully titled) Beef Barn near putah creek?
