I am enjoying a coffee as I write this, with a couple inches of foam on top. The foam is created simply by the pressure of milking as I squirt it into the milk jar! Thanks to my sweet goaty goats, I get to have a cappuccino.
Our mouths were purple from eating so many black and juicy berries.
Picking fresh food is more work but also more interesting than shopping at a grocery store.
I have been working on a few little projects, including the back to my Piano Keys quilt. I am going to embroider the full word "forgiveness" (from a song by Don Henley) but I am loving the active quality of the verb 'forgive'. Along with gratitude I feel like forgiveness is an important part of being happy and at peace, with ourselves and with other people.
I have been searching for the perfect sock monkey socks to make a monkey for my little guy. In the meantime I've been knitting up a pair of socks in an imitation of the common grey wool sock with a red stripe. There are a few variations but I haven't found any with a red heel, which is the key to making the sock monkey's mouth. Obviously I'm not going to cut up the socks I'm making but it is fun to make a homemade version of something that is mass produced.
It is finally mercifully raining and cloudy.
Enjoy this day!
