One of our ewes had twins yesterday, two girls. She had triplets but one of them was stillborn. I had to take it up to the bone pile. The girls are doing fine. Momma likes hanging out in the yard next to the house. The grass is very green and there is lots of shade. Zeke has not been too bad.

|Roof ready for tin.|
I fixed the latches on all the jugs except one. I took a latch off of a door in the lamb shed and I cannot find the dang thing. I looked all over but the inside of the barn is a mess and stuff is scattered everywhere. I will find it eventually or go snag another one. I finished fixing the tack room door today. It needed some door edging so I could mount the latch mechanism. It has a hole through the bar so the latch can be reached from both sides. I found an old broom handle that fit the hole and pounded it in place. You can now go in and out from both sides without difficulty. We got the ceiling supports in place and started laying the first layer of the floor. I am using 1x12 in two layers to cover the tack room ceiling. We had to switch to inside work once the wind started up today. I may have to have Mr. President up on the roof with me tomorrow just so he can keep the tin from blowing off while I screw it down. I checked the calendar and Mr President only has a couple more weeks of work. He wants to go off to college and live the good life and I am going to run out of money. So the next big push is to get the tin on the roof, and the wood scrap pile up to the burn pile. Once that is done we can empty out the old granary so I can pull it down and start salvaging wood from the roof and the floor. It is going to be a fast two weeks.
