Sleepy, droopy, Vicky - ZONKED in my mom's lap. Her legs were just dangling down, but she slept there for quite a while. Vicky loves my mom. She thinks my mom's lap is the best place ever. When we were at faire this weekend, she managed to get out of the petting zoo pen. She was running all over. Then she saw my mom and ran right to her and hopped up into her lap. So sweet!
Here's Mom and my neighbor Gail enjoying a little slice of Goatling Heaven. Bourke is in Mom's lap while Vicky and Tinkerbell are in Gail's. After visiting, the three of us went out for sushi. Well, Gail and I had sushi. Mom had udon.
Obviously, Gail was enjoying herself and being silly. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful neighbor.
Mom misses gardening, so I made sure she had a chance to help out while she was here. She planted a huge hanging pot with eight geraniums that now hangs from the pergola out front. It is centered in the living room picture window so I can enjoy it from inside and out. Here she was planting lemon grass. Of course, she likes to wear gloves. Can't get her beautiful nails dirty, oh no!
Mom was sleeping in the tent, so I tucked Tink in with her. After a couple minutes, Tinkerbell quit trembling. She then proceeded to fall into blissful sleep all comfy and warm under the blankets with Mom.
Tinkerbell and I, along with the rest of the herd are going to miss Mom. She flies home tomorrow morning. So today we just sat and relaxed and watched the goats play. And the icing on the cake? Mom got to see a Condor as it soared gracefully over our heads. We both enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I'm looking forward to the next time she gets to come down and play.
Love you Mom!!!
