I love you more than I love goats, and you know how I feel about goats”, Gaby said.

 James Patterson, The Christmas Wedding

Lunch with Gerry’s brother and his wife, catching up.

Then a visit to the Rogers flour mill to stock up on dry goods.

My husband, knowing the soft spot I have for goats, suggests a detour before we head for home.

Ten or fifteen minutes down a meandering countryish road and there they are: the sweet faces that capture my fancy every time.

We stay a while, I get my goat fix, then we continue on in search of fruit. We buy cherries.

We stop at the garden to harvest a salad before heading up the hill toward home.

It’s a simple day of immeasurable worth.

Today, summer returns and the deck beckons.

But first, an appointment in town and perhaps a walk in a park or two with my husband and our cameras.

I need to tend to those cherries too.

And writing.

Simple happy.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
