What a great day! I spend a good deal of it outside and I really lucked out on the weather. The day started with Rico’s regular sheep herding lesson. It started out in a brief downpour, but most of it looked like this.
There were some sheep out there in the field with Rico, but I just had to take a photo because it was so gorgeous. I think they are just off camera on the left.
After that lesson I hit the road for Molalla for another herding lesson with a different trainer. And after off and on rain storms for the hour long drive, we got really lucky and had great weather for this lesson too!
Had to stop and take another picture of Rico with sheep at this second location. I actually got the sheep in this photo.
Between my two sessions with this trainer, I took Bender and Rico for a little field run since Bender hadn’t had a chance to stretch his legs yet.
And, of course, there was posing involved.
Rico did a great job on the sheep today! He really put in a lot of good work.
After his second lesson, all three of us took a hike on some forest land next to my friend’s property. We all needed this! Nothing like getting out in the forest with just me and my boys and not other people to intrude on our solitude.
It was perfect weather to be out there! Gorgeous blue skies with clouds, and the sun peaking through the Doug fir trees.
Look how gorgeous it was!
And a little bit of me thrown in to show you how happy I was!
Here’s three minutes of video of us on our hike.
And then a really quick video of these boys cooling off in a small creek.
We didn’t get home until after 6:00. It was such a lovely drive home with no traffic. After dinner I sat on my butt for awhile, then decided to hit my sewing room and see if I could finish up the Jack Russell zipper pouches I started last night. And I got them done!
They turned out pretty cute and I was able to use up some smaller pieces of fabric that were in my stash.
Here’s some close ups of the pouches.
And just look how cute this fabric is!
Here’s the measurements for these pouches. Just substitute the BC fabric with Jack Russell fabric, than make the pouch according to my tutorial.
This next graphic goes with this type of zipper pouch. It also gives the size of the gussets for each size pouch.
And now my Advil PM is kicking in and I might just fall asleep on the couch.
