good morning. this is edelweiss. he’s our new goat….well, not new as in just born, but new to our house. he is the son of flea. flea was our favorite goat. she died this summer while we were away. it just about broke my heart. but she did leave with us two lovely kids. edelweiss and onyx. edelweiss has fallen ill and we feel we owe it to his mother to baby him and make him better. so he sleeps in the shed behind our house on a bed of hay. i give him molasses on his food and lots of hugs and kisses. and nick and i argue over who loves him more. this morning we had a glass of oj while i read edelweiss the funnies from the new yorker.
