so...much of today was a true mix of extra~ordinary and Ordinary. so much so, it was hard to tell the difference. but for the Ordinary, i went to visit Betty at the Old Folks Joint. Everytime i go it seems i make a new friend. today it was Celia. she is ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR YEARS OLD.
104 years old. Bright minded. Celia.
and there was a LOT of Extraordinary cyber exchanges. laying fibers across the terraine. they pulse.
and on a sudden urge, i went to the hardware/lumberyard and bought some cheap self stick tile for the kitchen...faux saltillo. it looked kind of OK in the box's window....but getting it home, oh...eee, it's shiny. Yikes.
it might scuff up ok...? oh, eeeee.
and some extra Chore Boys for scrubbing the Goats water bowls. it's gotten HOT and there is an algae, that's a nicer word than scum. but there's that that needs to be dealt with at least every other day. although the water itself appears to be pretty clear, the Goats will stand there, staring into their bowls as if to forsee the future...staring staring staring... They LOVE brand new clean and spiffy water tubs. and I LOVE to watch them, after scrubbing them out and then filling filling filling with the hose and they line up, sometimes nice and sometimes not so nice but they wait and then drink...their lips submerged and forming an o like the orifice of a straw and they DRAW in water, loooong, loooong, looooong until it is Enough and then look Up at me. my heart beats with this exchange... i just Love to watch them drink.
