I mentioned in a post somewhere that there are some exciting things heading our way soon. Stay tuned. Watch this space. Something exciting is going to happen at Fangorn Farm! It has something to do with all the fencing going on. Anyone brave enough to guess what’s happening?
I am sad that today is the last day of summer. I do not want the days to be shorter. I do not want the days to be cooler. I don’t want rain or hail or snow and I don’t want frosts (they’ll come soon). I like wearing skirts and shorts and sandals. I like […]
