I don’t have much jiggity jig in my step, however. My husband and I had to make an emergency trip down to NJ because his 90 year old mother was unwell and we really didn’t know what the outcome was going to be. So off we went, really early on Sunday morning, and blasted down. 7 hours driving with a quick stop or two. My hips and back don’t do so well on long travels anymore, but it wasn’t too bad as we were able to share the driving. And the traffic even in the suburbs of NYC is so bad these days, we had massive culture shock!
My mother in law is now on the mend and we came north yesterday. My older son had been taking care of the goaties, and a friend of ours did the pigeon care. It was a total relief to be home, and when I got outside this morning I was wonderstruck by our peepers, the quiet, and my very own slice of Maine sky with the moon still hanging there. What a relief!
Pippi is warming up for her big event, but I believe she is still a few days out. I am looking forward to spending some time with her as she gets closer to kidding day. SnowPea’s babies are on a tear around the paddock, and can always be found out by the big rock. They allowed me to take a “selfie” of them looking over my shoulder. And then mama called them over to the feeder and she asked them to hang out by her for awhile.
And then tonight was our monthly spinning/knitting group. Great laughs with some wonderful women. Can’t get much better than that! What an amazingly great day.
