Welcome to our 1864 farmhouse…life is good!


Monday, July 22

summer in the country...snapshots from the last week.

Even though we have our own garden, it's fun to see what goodies arrive in our weekly CSA box. It comes from the nicest family farm not far from home. (Oh...and they have goats, too!) Everything comes freshly-washed, neatly trimmed, and packed in a sturdy poplar box...
this family works hard, and it shows.










We were blessed last weekend to "goat-sit" this adorable 2 week-old sweetie!
His name is GB (short for Goat Boy) and it was a weekend to remember as we all took
turns bottle feeding him. 

(Why yes...we are hoping he's for sale in the near future. Cindy, are you reading this?!)

Happy Monday, friends!

Thanks! Nothing like snuggling a 2 week old kid in a quilt (I guess that goes for the 2-legged kind as well!)

I'm hoping he comes our way, Ginny! He's still little, so it would be some time, but a girl can wish!

I have to say, I've never seen such care taken with presentation that I do with each box...and the mom looks oh-so nice wearing the prettiest aprons each week when we visit!

Thanks so much for stopping by! We'll be listening to the raindrops this evening, and hoping for a sunny day to enjoy our county's fair later in the week.
