judy herding

Monday October 13, 2008

On Sunday we spent the day at Kinnic Creek farm watching bordie collies herd sheep and goats – it was amazing to watch! Jake and I have never seen this many border collies in one place and they were incredibily friendly and determined.

To herd.
To herd the sheep.

Judy was there for her first lesson to see if she had the herding instinct.

Here is the video of us in the pen with three sheep. Her barking did not stop after she got started — she was a little anxious of these big white animals (definitely bigger than any squirrel she has seen!) and didn’t quite know if she was suppose to chase them or what!

p.s. Beware of the sheep jumping into the fence – it looks horrible but the sheep was fine.

right now

Wednesday October 8, 2008

With my new found freedom and housewifery I have been experimenting with how to spend my time — cooking and baking (and sometimes not cleaning up); having bonfires in the backyard and eating smores; going to the dog park so Judy can have that sense of freedom and exploration that she so craves; oh and (sometimes) drinking margaritas and falling asleep in the living room listening to MSNBC. It has been wonderfully relaxing and weird at the same time.

But last night Jake and I ventured out of our house and drove to the Orpheum Theater in downtown Minneapolis for an exciting night out on the town. We had tickets to see Kathy Griffin LIVE (she is my definitely my favorite comedian and did not disappoint).

It was a great night out on the town but as soon as I got home to our warm little house and flipped on MSNBC, got a glass of milk and some Oreos, and fell asleep in the living room…I realized that life doesn’t get much better than right now.

Pizza on the farm Tuesday night was amazing! Out under the stars eating, drinking, and talking — what more can you ask for?!
