The Job

Lambs & Cumulous Clouds
 
Everyday my job is to look in on the sheep, making sure that they are well, that they have enough grass to graze, fresh water to drink and that the electric net fence is up & energized.  If they are content, they chew their cuds dreamily and ignore me bittersweetly. 
 
We had another inch and a half of rain yesterday on top of the inch we had two days ago.  Last week the grasses were dying; they were dark, crispy underfoot, and holding their breath; with the new rainfall the fields let go; they exhaled and blushed green.
