"Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell." William read aloud for us. We baked the last of our homegrown apples, and sat in front of the fireplace. Immeasurable gratitude for love, home, and this moment of serenity.

Silly Mako! My little photo shoot was abruptly interrupted... "Alfalfa blossoms aren't only pretty," she cooed. "They're delicious." And in a jiffy my pretty flowers were all pecked up.

The new bale of alfalfa smells sweet and warm. My favorite part... as I gather it, tearing out an armful, I see tiny lavender flowers mingled in the greens. They're so pretty, like glitter to a party, twinkle lights in a garden.

Chango... always a hint of his feral youth in his expression or posture. He's such a gentle soul, and now he's an old man, everything about him is tender, timid, and endearingly curmudgeonly.

Goats and chickens are picnicking outside today, while a bit of construction is happening in their run. New Goat shelter is on its way!

His room with a view. Cairo is happy perched in the open window.

Focusing on home. The greens and blues and cool shades, peaceful corners, sweeping floors, washing berries. The world is big... I'm taking it a little bit at a time.

It's Pepper. Or Pippi. Looking resplendent in the light of the setting sun. She, her sisters, and the goats are tucked in, safe for the night. We wish the world sweet dreams, peace, and good will~

It was a feeding frenzy tonight! There weren't enough bedtime snacks to satisfy the ravenous beasts, and it got kind of wild between goats and chickens. I ended up scooping out an extra ration. Full moon? Eclipse? Are they stress eating because of global events and tyrant tantrums?? I'm going to light a candle, say my prayers, and read poetry.

Settling into the hand-quilting, and feeling content.

Where did the morning disappear to? Just sitting down with my 'breakfast' tea, and realizing how off-track I am (again.) Ah-well, blog is updated, groceries are put away, and there's only moving forward to do...

Disciplining the cat... no cats on the fabric, no cats on the table. Bad kitty.

Seven feet off the ground and in over his head... Cairo is still a kitten when it comes to tree climbing.

Sunday...
Geoff and Max dug footings for the floor of the new Goat shelter, which is now leveled and waiting to get framed for walls and a lean-to roof. I applied myself to scrubbing the pool... our frenemy is a mess, again. But mostly we all just mixed chores with pleasures, work with play, bubbles with breezes.

Tasha Tudor goat is weeding. The efficiency of her technique is sheer brilliance. Weed-Mulch-Fertilize 🐐#ourbirdhouse #littlefarm #diy #garden #gardentool #goat #nigeriandwarfgoat #weeding #naturalprocess

"Ada, don't eat the paint." We've begun making the new goat shelter, and the goats are their usual _helpful_ selves. 😂

Emma Thompson has the nest-box, Mako is next, and Fiona will have to be very patient.
