You know what Friday is? This Friday, the 20th of June? Of course you do. Summer solstice is arriving, or as Wiccans call it, Litha. The longer light in the evenings has been enjoyable. What is nicer than sitting outside on the porch of an evening, listening to the birds chatter before their bedtimes? The garden takes on a different look, subtle and soft. White blooms start to glow and beckon. If there be fairies, they are warming up the strings of their musical tools, preparing for a summer night's concert.
Look at these roses I procured at our grocery store, Wegmans!!!
I wanted to show off the soaps I received from The Publicist at the blog, The Maaaaa of Pricilla
AbbyGoat from the farm recently birthed triplets, yes three boys! And she and The Publicist needed help naming these little rascals. The three names I submitted were selected!! Ricky, Rudy and Rory! They are adorable, go take a look! The prize? I got to choose three soaps made from the milk of the wonderful goats!
Here they are: Click on the photos to see better. The bottom photo shows Pricilla, grandmother goat of Abby's kids.
One of the ways I occupied myself during the long hours in hospital rooms, surgery waiting areas, and many weeks of being my husband's caregiver was to read. And boy did I go through some books. Is there any room left in my brain to hold any more words? (of course!!) I was stacking the books up the other day and trying to figure out where to put some more book shelves.
As I said, it is sunny and beautiful today, so I want to take advantage. Take care and hope all is well where you are!
Sorry, Pixie, you are an indoor cat, you are not allowed to come outside with me. Okay?
