It rained the day the WWOOFers were here, and it rained yesterday. Sunny and bright when I went down to the barn, before I finished the rain was pounding down. It's a good thing I have lids for the milk buckets. Bess showed good sense and was waiting on the porch when I slogged my way back to the house. The whole day was like that, sunshine alternating with drenching rain. It ended before my friend Camille came to share leftovers for dinner. Honey, much younger, tried so hard to get Bessie Anne to play, dragging toys out of the basket and dropping them in front of Bess's nose, but Bess declined the offer. Giving a huge sigh, Honey decided to take a nap too.
I had to laugh; Pete, my SoCal Kid, called me from a grocery store to ask about goat cheese. Would feta do to make the stuffed date appetizers I'd mentioned on Saturday? Since the store had no chevre, I suggested he use ricotta as an acceptable substitute. Pete might not have been able to join his siblings here, but he was darned sure going to share in the goodies, even if he had to make them himself!
It was a good day.
