I am seeing something a little bit creepy in this photograph, look to the left and middle of the cave, can you see that it looks like St Francis with his hands together in prayer, there is a little triangle of flesh colour right in the middle of the darkness and I can see dark brown robes to the left of the cave!
I think it is St Francis himself praying in there. I keep seeing people here that look real but I do not think they are really real as they look to be from another time and I think they should already be settled in the next life otherwise they must be at least 800 years old and their beards are not long enough for that.

Oh my goodness , I have walked so much today up and down hills and down and up again and then up and down pink stoned wonky steps, (some of which I was a little bit afraid of as they were a little bit too wonky!) and then down again and then up again, until my little feet could not walk anymore .
Here I am resting in a place that seems just made for me . Just look at all of these brightly coloured comfy cushions , I could almost be back in my cosy kitchen at Clover Cottage if it wasn't for the noises of Assisi finding their way into my ears. I am just going to rest a bit longer then am going to feed some pigeons in the Piazza around the corner . Love from Sherbetx
You can see that I have a look of pure bliss and adoration on my face as I am cuddling up to him . He does look rather small here compared to me, but he is in truth hugely wonderful with a huge heart and huge soul so just because he looks a little bit little here, it does not reflect who he really is does it ?

I have had a truly delightful afternoon here with the light streaming through the trees and dappling my wool with bright white splodges. I found my own special places in the wooded slopes and pathways where I know for sure that the feet and sandals of Saint Francis have also walked . I sat in my own quiet meditation and said a few little prayers to my favourite Saint. I know he was listening to me and I am sure he is very good at answering prayers . Love from Sherbetx

I do hope I did not interrupt their delicious Italian ice cream eating time too much.
Maybe we can find them again if my German sheep friends share this photo.
Love from Sherbet with new friends from far far away.
As you can see I am very good at finding comfy places to lay down for a little while . Those cushions in my second photograph were just made for me and my little Sherbet Sheep body.
My shoes have been wearing out so you will start to see me wearing my grey ones soon . I don't have many clothes with me just these dungarees . I think it is appropriate as I am trying to follow St Francis who threw away his clothes to wear a scratchy piece of sack cloth. I am sure if I wore sack cloth it wouldn't scratch me as I am far too woolly but Oh dear, poor Saint Francis must have really wished he had a soft woolly coat underneath his simple clothing . But I am sure that as he had such a pure heart and soul he was constantly being blessed with not feeling itchy.

Hello dear friends . I must tell you that while I was on my to Assisi , I stayed for one night in a beautiful place near a lake and I introduced myself to a brand new Italian friend called Lara, I hope Lara will read my stories. I am sure they will help her to learn English. Hello from Sherbet Sheep to Lara my new friend. Love from Sherbetx

If it was not for my modern clothes you may just think that I belonged in the 13th or 14th century. I am however alive and well and living in the here and now. As you can see from this picture I have a particularly happy and contented face today.

How lovely that I can manage to find just the right messages to send you right there on the street.

Today, a very kind man allowed me to sit in his art gallery and have my photos taken.
In fact he thought it quite good fun to have me there and I am very grateful to him as it is a very beautiful place full of beautiful things and there I was, a little bit grubby from sitting around on stone walls and steps all day . The picture of Saint Francis behind me is made of ceramic tiles .Oh how lovely it was to spend some time looking at the beautiful artwork all around me. I will show you more pictures tomorrow. I have so many.
With love and peace from Assisi , Sherbetx

I am so happy that Prince George now has a playmate and a baby sister to look after and I cannot wait to invite them both to Clover Cottage to meet all the little creatures in my garden.
