Homeward Bound, well sort of!








With the usual artist appologises!


I'm sittin' at my computer station
Thinking back upon my destination
On a tour of vendor stands
My credit card and purse in hand
And every stop is neatly planned
For a mother and her three kid band
 

I want a sheep
to bring back home
Just want one to keep...... at
Home, look a ducks escaping

Home, let's have some lambs playing




Home, where sheep could be waiting
Silently for me

Everyday's an endless stream
Of work to do, nothing to see
And each duck looks the same to me

The feathers and the feet I see
But every sheep looks sweet to me
And reminds me that I just want three...


I want a sheep
to bring back home
Just want one to keep...... at
Home, look a ducks escaping
Home, let's have some lambs playing 
Home, where sheep could be waiting
Silently for me

 
Tonight I'll pet my yarn again
I'll dream of sheep and pretend


But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptyness in harmony
"We can bring home yarn but not a sheep!"


The kids liked the sheep shearing and the dog herding ducks the best....I was partial to the yarn.

A little did come home with us, but no livestock, which is what we had been really singing about on the hour long drive to Wool Gathering.  One thing that came home with us was full tummies!  Youngs Jersey Dairy is pretty well known for their fabulous ice-cream around these parts! No-one wanted much of their dinner, including myself, who should be setting a much better example than filling up on Black Raspberry and Black Walnut ice-cream in a cholocate dipped waffle cone before heading home.  But, on the flip side we have been eating a lot of fresh fruits and veggies lately, and the amount of junk food that has been finding its way into my grocery cart has been severely cut back (although I am still partial to chips!)

My small haul is below.....we'll talk about it later, right now I am trying this recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  Maybe we didn't get enough sweets!

A very restrained haul. And thank you for messing with my mind - I'll be singing about sheep for the rest of the afternoon!
