i´m thinking about a career change...

I think I´d like to be a shepherd. I´d sit in a lawn chair with a beach umbrella, have my cooler filled with snacks, and hang out and watch the sheep eat grass all day.... 
P.S. That is Jorge with his pockets filled with walnuts... and, yes, this time the farmer got mad...
P.S.S. My kids tell me I look like Coco...
P.S.S.S. Happy weekend!

Is that you in the last picture??
When i was a little girl I wanted to be a farmer and a shepherd and also a veterinary, and I was asking all the time to my mom if people could have three jobs at the same time hahahaha
the problem was animals behaved the same way with me than they did with anyone else...so I stopped thinking I could actually talk with them and connect our minds ans started thinking about another job hahahahaha
Big kisses jane!

anna said...

Not a bad idea at all, i've actually considered it myself :) & Hello you! You and coco look very cute together!

kristina - no penny for them said...

what a beautiful series!

p.s.: also love that you brought the comments back, and you and coco look like true soul mates! :)

Joyce said...

Did you run fast away from the farmer? I look forward to see what career changes you will make. xo

tanïa said...

Looks as if Coco and you are a very good team, ideal to become shepards together! Always love to see pictures of your dog which is so similar to ours! Well now, let us all become shepards...! ;o)

Flowtops said...

Sometimes I think I'd like to be a sheep - or a cow, for that matter. Life seems so simple to these creatures... Please do tell us you'll be back with us on CV soon!

likeschocolate said...

You don't look like Coco. Sounds like a good career change to me.

Leslie said...

If that's you in the last photo, you're quite lovely! I'm not sure you're quite as beautiful as Coco... but then I don't think any of us could achieve her level of black and white elegance ; )

ladybug-zen said...

i think i was a shepardess in a past life. i often pine away for days for the pastoral life:)

RosaMaría said...

I love the idea about have a chair with the umbrella, the cooler and just watch the sheep eat grass all day too....
Coco is so lovely just like you!

happy weekend!

KathyA said...

I think you'd make a great shepherd!

So when did Jorge take to becoming a walnut thief??? :)

PS Coco could be your double! (kidding -- but you're both adorable!)

Juniper said...

I agree with you, sitting watching sheeps graze in a field sounds about perfect right now. Looks like a delightful weekend- picking walnuts right off the trees?! How cool! Sorry the farmer was not so happy.

Purple Flowers said...

I think being a Shepard would be a somewhat peaceful existence.

You are pretty and Coco is cute, but you don't look alike. :)
Enjoy your Sunday!

Best set up a partnership with some Dutchie if you change your carreer honey.

elianne said...

I agree, and than I would have a blog about my work

Esti said...

hi jane!
I would sit with you to stare at the clouds while the sheep graze, if you don't mind...

Joanna Jenkins said...

I've been on vacation and finally had a chance to catch up on your gorgeous photos. You never disappoint-- I love them all. A million thanks for sharing them with us.
Cheers, jj

RNSANE said...

Nice photos! I think it would be kind of nice to be a shepherd as long as you have a good sheep dog to keep things going smoothly if you should doze off while watching the cloud formations in the warm sun!!

Eva's House said...

I completely understand you! The pictures show us a perfect and peaceful life!

le blÖg d'Ötli said...

And happy monday to you!
Welcome "back" :)

L'Atelier said...

hello! so nice to have you back again :)
love the photos. i have those moments when i think i would like to be a shepherd in the alps... and then i think again i loooove living in cape town central...sigh. maybe i could be a part time shepherd? ;)
kisses! xo

Don said...

I'm sure there must be a downside to the shepherd racket. Do they get a paid vacation? :)

Francesca said...

Oh, you've opened comments again! Is that what you're up to, a career change?

Pastrè dè délaï l'aïo,

Pastré lou prat faï flour,

Cathy said...

I like watching the sheep who live opposite our block. It is very peaceful and relaxing.

ibb said...

It is something that makes me think, more and more.

melski said...

hehe! i love the shot with the reflection in the mirror!

Angie Muresan said...

Seriously? Wouldn't you get a bit bored or lonely? I think you should be a photographer and go all over the world, photographing it. Your photos are amazing and they always have stories to tell.

kim banks said...

Be careful! The last time I wandered onto a random farm, I found myself face to face with an unfriendly german shepard. 10 stitches and arm in a cast later.... i will NEVER "just want to see the cows" again!

aimee said...

make sure you get one of those cute little huts!

Reyes said...

No comments? I do have to give you some advice though, do not even consider becoming a shepherd. In my mother's village there were two (goat herders both of them, it's goat country in that part of Rioja) and they were both raving MAD! Besos guapa, ya nos contarás que te tiene tan ocupadaXXX

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
