For what seemed like both an eternity and a nanosecond it was gloriously, gorgeously summer here. Hot, hot, hot, dipped our toes in the sand/ lake/and grass, drinks with ice cubes, open windows with billowing breezed curtains, simply divine.
Then, as all things do, it came to an end, again. Such is life in the upper midwest.
With all that sunlight and outdoor time the confinement and cold made us all a little itchy to be back outside, basking. Since that simply wasn't possible we did the second best thing - we took a quick field trip to the farm to visit my friend Gretta's goats - and lucky for us Gretta and her husband were there as well!
The sweet pygmy's that Gretta is raising couldn't be cuter - they love a good scratch behind the ears, can't get enough of their treats, are playful as puppies, and, in the case of the fiber-producing ones, are rabbit-y soft.
We're lucky to have a place that provides a few warm smiles even when the weather turns cold again...but numb hands make for quick trips so we'll have to visit longer once the sun stays higher in the sky.
Now you can get Gretta's soaps online at Grettasgoats.com!
