I’m glad I stopped by the CUESA website because otherwise I would never have known about the upcoming Goat Festival that they will be having down at the Ferry Building on April 20. Not sure why it is, but I do have a soft spot for goats. I think they’re awfully cute. My daughter and I are already marking the calendar! Anybody want to come along?

Awfully quite this month. Hope all is well. Made your kohlrabi slaw again.
Yeah, I’ve been kind of stymied not just by being extra busy but also when these horrible scale tragedies take place and throttle us all (New Town, Boston Marathon bombing, social media post-rape humiliation induced suicides of teenage girls) I have been feeling conflicted as a blogger. I don’t particularly want to write about these topics but to just gloss over them and not mention them feels wrong too since they’ve been weighing heavily. I need to get over it. I was almost going to post something up about this this very day but then I took a nap instead! More posts soon! Thanks for checking in.
