Cajeta!

I’m experimenting a little bit with cajeta – goat milk caramel. It’s just goat’s milk simmered with sugar for a good long while. It tastes delicious and sweet and rich and I can’t wait for you all to try some when you come visit!

Our new sunset spot

Wes and Christian built us a fire pit!

Go Big Red – everywhere!

I don’t know what became of the goat I was holding – I assume she floated to the ground and landed on all hooves, wondering why I seemed consumed by an extreme gravity, and quickly escaping lest it prove contagious. My head landed safely, equally far from the feeder (ouch) and a grenade of goat shit (blech). Stunned, I looked up at the now curious goats that had fled my expanding shadow, and having assessed my figured it w to stand. Sherwin said only, “we’ve all done it” and it was truly the only thing I could have heard at that moment.
