My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

FRUSTRATION

Didn't get the buck goat pen built last night. Someone came home in a grumpy mood, even with new goat babies to cuddle.

Escalated to a doozy of an argument at bedtime. About shuffling feet and damaging carpet, something the kid absolutely can't control (whether it's OCD or autism, I don't know but he's been doing it since he was 3 or 4). So now I'm looking for carpet runners or pieces or irregulars to put all over the house so the kid has a place to walk without hurting the carpet.

Seriously.

I'm getting ready to call and see if friends or friends-of-friends can help me build the buck goat pen today. Like I don't have anything else to do.

Beyond frustrating.
