A volley of visits
Browning thinks everyone should visit HIM – and most visitors do!
It's been a busy month of comings and goings. We ushered in July away from home, attending Cowboy Campmeeting. Since then, we've had old friends from our Minnesota days come for a weekend stay, we've had fellow Shetland breeders come for a flock visit, we spent a lovely day with one of my college roommates and bridesmaids who was in the area along with her parents, and had another friend visiting from out of town over for dinner. To end the month, this morning my parents flew in for a week-long visit. Lovely opportunities all to spend time with special people, so I hope you'll understand my lack of time for regular blogging.
I did manage pedal along on the Tour de Fleece this month, spinning into singles one of the bumps of alpaca/silk Theresa gave me and starting on another.
Through it all we're eating well, from our pantry, from our garden, and most recently from the 60 lbs of blueberries we picked on Sunday.
