We stayed busy with ranchy chores like moving compost, putting new straw in Jackson's stall and the goat shed, and spending as much time outside as possible.
|I'm not sure that Brett asked for help in the hay shed, but these two volunteered anyway.|
Saturday, Camille came up with two of her friends. They are the nicest bunch of girls -- polite, helpful, and good eaters. I made lasagne for dinner with homemade rolls and a salad full of apples, fennel, cucumber, tomato and red bell pepper.

We stopped for awhile at the pond and enjoyed the late afternoon warmth. Flash and Jackson stood quietly, soaking in the day as well. We eventually continued on, up the hill and then back down the steep part. Jackson trucked right along with no hesitation. The only time he slowed and showed reluctance was when we got back home -- I think he wanted to keep going.
It was just Brett and I for dinner tonight. The girls have gone back down the mountain for school Monday. Brett barbequed some Ahi and I roasted acorn squash and sauteed swiss chard, then tossed in hazelnuts and raisins. Yum.
