IN MY WORLD
So I’ve been bottle feeding Pippi; she’s the first goat I’ve ever bottle fed. I thought it’d be a pain, to be honest, but I’ve welcomed the trips out, even in the early morning, and late evenings, even in a snowstorm, even in the cold, biting winter wind. She always seems so appreciative and I feel more of a connection to her than with my non-bottle fed goats. It’s neat!
And, another super late birthday day with my best friends Laurel and Weylon Wolph who took Bill and me to see bluesman Samuel James in Gardiner at the Johnson Hall Performing Center. He was amazing! He signed my CD "My Portuguese Princess, Sonia". It was pretty cool for me :)
