Poem for Monday

After Adam finished Hebrew school and I finished two pieces of Trek news, we had a lovely afternoon at Family Festival @ the Farm seeing lots of animals and crafts and produce. We started at Lilypons Water Gardens, which has lily pads and orchids and koi and things that live in ponds and wetlands. Then we went to Stunkel's, which has sheep and cattle -- the sheep were the particular draw, as Adam loves them, and though they weren't shearing this year, there were lambs and cats and several dogs with puppies in addition to the cows. We got homemade brownies and ate them in the afternoon sun.

Then we went to Kiparoo Farm Studio, which was actually part of the Countryside Artisans' tour rather than the farm tour but which we hadn't gotten to on Friday. They also have cows and Border Leicester sheep and they spin absolutely beautiful yarn, though I didn't buy any because my crocheting skills are quite rusty. We stopped to see the alpacas at Chestnut Hill, where they also have a craft display, and finished up at Brookfield Pumpkins, where we picked three for Halloween and saw the chickens, pigs, goats, sheep and cows, plus the craft display and fancy gourds. We had to stop at the pet store for cat litter on the way home, so we got to see many, many animals.

Watched Brotherhood, missed sections because we were trying to get the kids to bed but I loved the brief Thelma and Louise dynamic between Eileen and Kath! So much of this show is about the men this season, even Rose's role is much diminished, sniping at Michael and Colin, it's really nice to see Eileen with someone she can actually talk to. Though I am worried about Michael. Because Jason Isaacs must be around for as long as possible. Oh, and I want Michael Gambon to say something about Dumbledore...well, unless it's going to be something incredibly stupid, but I have confidence in him. He was not, after all, above begging Rowling to put Dumbledore in book seven as a ghost in public interviews after HBP, just as Jason was shameless about begging her in person to let Lucius out of jail.
