I herded goats with my car today.  Which I think officially makes me awesome, because anyone can herd goats, but using a car? That takes skill.  For work I sometimes get sent to Cayo to do errands, and I get to drive! (always enjoyable-  I can't drive our truck, it's standard, so I don't ever get to drive).  On the way back  I stopped at home and encountered all our goats far from our house and heading towards the neighbor's corn field.  I rolled down the window, waved, yelled and honked, which scared the goats into running back towards our house.  Then I smugly drove behind them.  This behavior might seem far from awesome-- perhaps even slightly scary-- to anyone who doesn't own goats.  Trust me, the little punks deserve it.  When I came out of my house they had all surrounded the car.  I think they were debating whether to hot wire it or just carve their initials into the paint.

summer changes

I made some pretty new pillows which feel really summery to me.  The flowered print one was made from a vintage pillow case, it is so cheery.  And super easy, all I did was cut the pillow case in half, and sew up two little cases.

And this is my new favorite thing:  a locker!  I begged, borrowed, and drove 6 hours to get this, and I love it.  I want to get it sandblasted eventually to get rid of the institutional tan, and leave it a nice silvery metal color.

What else... I read The Help, and it was the first book off Amazon's best seller list that I actually liked.  Read it, it's good.  I especially liked how the author switched between characters throughout the book, it was well done.
