Coffee Mug

Day 99: Feb. 28, 2014

Today's post is merely for the benefit of showing off my latest watercolor.  My poor friend who as of the middle of last night has the throw ups, as we call it around here, has influenced my inner artist.

And also, one benefit of having no goat fence is that whenever we go for a walk in the neighborhood, the goats come too. We are quite a scene walking down the road. The other day, we were walking along with our neighbor and her new puppy. We walked all the way to the intersection where another neighbor's horse hangs out, and we stopped to feed it some grass. The goats were right along with us, eating grass, hopping around when the puppy got too close. Then, another couple walks by. It was as if the goats could sense their lives would be better with these other, more sane individuals who had no puppy and no children to distract them from caring for the goats.  So they walked right along with their new mom and dad as if I and my kids never existed for them.  It was a little heart wrenching.

We got them back eventually.

Here's the watercolor.
