This weekend turned out to be pretty awesome. We didn’t make a lot of plans, because Evan’s mother was supposed to be coming into town Sunday evening, so we had a lot of preparations to make. Saturday, we got up early to go to the Carrboro farmer’s market and found ourselves in the middle of a street festival, Carrboro Open Streets. There were booths about bike safety, Zumba classes, yoga in the middle of the street, kid’s art stations…it was a pretty amazing display of community to behold. We decided to grab a bottle of water at Weaver St. Market and enjoy the weather and the festivities for a minute before we headed back home to clean. Which we did for the entire rest of the day, except for an hour or so when jennaywithan-i came over for some coffee and visiting, which was lovely.
Sunday we were able to get our chores done early to make our way out to Rougemont and Prodigal Farm’s open barn. They are in the middle of kidding season, and there were baby goats everywhere. I’m pretty sure that that is what heaven looks like. I especially bonded with one little black and white girl named Husty…she just followed me around and snuggled me, and I totally wanted to bring her home to be Dacs’s new caprine sister. We also took a tour of the dairy and tasted some incredible cheeses that I’ll be writing about later (trust me, they deserve their own post). We came home from that to do our cooking and ironing for the week, and got a call that Evan’s mother wouldn’t be coming after all.
All’s well that ends well, I guess. I got to play with baby goats and hang out with some friends, so I’m putting it in the win column.
