A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

They're here!! After a truly harrowing journey...10 hour drive in wet, slippery snow and white out conditions, 12 hour return trip with fog, very tired, cranky children and a car sick dog...our sheep are in their new home!!
They are a little nervous after their long journey...but still quite curious about us. We haven't agreed on any names...I like the idea of Icelandic sounding names...but the girls like Rachel, Curly, Neigh-Neigh (M.'s favourite) and Brownie.

I'll write more later...when I've recovered from our trip :)


  1. Does this mean that there is spinning and lots more knitting in your future?

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! They're beautiful! We looked up icelandic baby names and picked some from there. Freya is the Norse Goddess and Renauld means "mighty one" in Icelandic. Brida is a British Goddess and Draga is Croation but I thought they fit. The ones we eat get named after herbs and spices...
