2 1/2 weeks and counting…

August 29, 2012

soon we will be moving to our new little farm.

something about this move and the elegant fit of this place for our family and animals

feels pre-destined, somehow.

i find great comfort in that.

i’ve been telling the dogs,

especially the elderly, intermittently incontinent dalmatian,

that soon there will be a vast yard of green grass

to roll in for the rest of his days.

the cats are largely unimpressed,

but they are cats.

the horses are beginning to get excited.

this is something i just know.

last weekend they got a pedicure,

and we spent some quality time just brushing them

and talking about what lies ahead.

of course they are excited to meet the two new baby herd members,

and certainly to meet their new donkey cousins otis and sam.

their eyes got all dewy as we outlined the good times to come.

sunny is most excited about being the oldest and helping out.

si gaoithe wants to know if she and her little sister meadbh can have their own room.

despite the innocent look here she is a sassy sister for sure, that one!

tireachan is looking forward to riding in the trailer and keeping the others calm.

i appreciate that.

and caoinlean?

he is so excited to meet his brother cormac mac airt…

that his eyeballs roll right back in his head when he thinks about it!

life is good.

thanks for sharing it with us.
