It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Dance Party?

We were thinking that we should put some music on and do some dancing here before the goats sleep in it. A few strings of lights, after the sun goes down, and a glass of Merlot. Yea!
But, the reality is that we're both so tired at the end of the day that we haven't yet gone back out there and "cut the rug" That expression is for the over 60 folks. (That's different than "cut the cheese" young'uns: you need to know these things.) Anyway, I think it would be fun to turn on the radio and dance out there after dark. Nobody is going to complain about the noise; not with a buffer zone of 42 acres. The animals might get a bit confused but, knowing the goats, they'll probably join us.

Just don't drink too much of that Merlot and fall down hurting yourself whilest cutting to rug. You just can't afford to be laid up this time of year what with critters to care for and veggie to tend. Looks as if things are moving right along.

We went to pick up lumber today to get the ball rolling at this end with our project.

Oh to have a 42 acre buffer... We have a 7ft buffer on two sides and a 20 ft buffer in the back. I keep pretending I live on a lavender farm and have dancing goats and crazy chickens.

In a way its true, I do have lots of lavender plants, my husband sometime smells like a goat and can really cut-a-rug and well, I have had a five year old friend tell me I am "absessive" about chickens.
