|Clementine and CoCo|
Friday, June 10, 2016
Coco and Sunflower went "home" to Caramel Apple Farm for a stay while I'm off on vacation. CoCo and her Mom, Blueberry usually come right together to say hello but this time there was a new baby there to greet my girls. "Clementine" is Blueberry's new kid this year so CoCo has a new sister. And don't they look alike? Their color is officially "red" and not very common. Clementine has blue eyes and Coco's are golden brown but other than that they are pretty much twinsies!! CoCo's babies are due in 4 weeks. Stand by for more goat baby pictures. None for Sunny this year. She gets the year off.

Friday on Earth Day the light rail line from Union Station in downtown Denver to the Denver International Airport opened for travel. In celebration and orientation all rides were free!!! Who doesn't love that??? So Kate and I made an adventure of it: We caught the train at our closest station; rode to the airport; toured the station there and the new fabulous Westin hotel; then rode straight back to Union Station and explored the ice cream shop and the Tattered Cover bookstore. We had a day of it and lots of fun.

On the way home I asked Kate if she thought there would every be a time when we didn't enjoy doing things like this together. "That would be never"

"But I want first of all...to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out (these) obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact...to live 'in grace' as much of the time as possible."
