On Sunday, a friend stopped by during the downpour to enjoy a little goat snorkeling/snorgling. They are so relaxed that Apple's little hiney is hanging out the back. Chickie kept trying to whisper in her ear..."I am the cute one - I am the one with personality - you should snorgle ME!" Sage was watching from the dry barn. Babies or not, she wasn't about to get wet.

|Hey, lady. Put those kids down and snorgle me!|
|You can see Apple's ample little butt sticking out|
to the right.
It was a short snorgling session, as the goats H.A.T.E. rain, and that's about all it did on Sunday. And the day before. And the day before that. And...never mind.
That left Monday. I did manage to squeeze in three days' worth of gardening by starting at 9 and stopping at 6. I am happy to say that, other than planting basil, peppers and squash, I am done. Am I ever. For now, anyway. Am I the only one who goes out the day after planting seeds to stare at the dirt, waiting for the seedlings to appear?
