Over the weekend, we visited my friend Marie who keeps goats. She is also an avid gardener and has more than half a dozen large gardens.

The constant rain has kept her busy with weeds. Her goats are within eyesight of her garden and her pool. When they hear her voice, they become very animated and social and start "talking." What is is about goats? They always look like they are smiling.

When we were up in Brimfield in the spring, she purchased a small goat statue and has it peeking out of a shrub near her pool. Perfect! The day we bought it, she was lugging it through Brimfield in a cart and people stopped us over and over to say how much they loved it.

It rained frequently over the weekend. We saw water levels were quite high wherever we were and there are flood watches just about everywhere. It has now turned REALLY humid.

Have a very busy Monday ahead. I must remember to smile like the goats and be just as social. They are so affectionate and happy all the time!

Enjoy the day!
