Please welcome the two newest arrivals to the Zook homestead. Woo-hoo!

Our new bunny, Mr. Cinnamon–

…gift of Whitney, Guy, Chrissy, Jake, and especially Darien. Thank you, guys!



Little Sal, our week-old baby goat. We bought her for $25 from a local farm.

When Sal is full-grown and freshens, she should produce at least 2 or 3 quarts of milk per day. But for this year, we’re just playing. (Who would have guessed it would be so fun to bottle-feed her?)

She is curious, spunky, friendly, docile–all good things a goat should be. And she follows us around like a puppy. Here’s Regan zooming in for a close-up.

Regan says “Ew. I had snot in my nose.”

“It’s adorable,” I say.

I’m not sure which is more funny…you’re conversation with Regan or the picture. But my goodness, I howled. This is so you, Shari…having a little funny farm of sorts. It brightens my day just to see you and the kids (both kinds :)) and the bunny of course. Your names are most fitting!

Aww. I love love love the goat, it brings back memories of when I was growing up. I loved to bottle feed them & it appears you do too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think Mr. Cinnamon is a great name of the bunny too. Have fun w/your new babies. (At least these sleep thru the night!)

Adorable, absolutely adorable…the boys, that is! Actually, the animals aren’t too bad, considering that they can’t help it that they are just critters. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Shari – Anna sent me the link for your blog, and today I started reading and couldn’t stop. You have an amazing way with words and stories. So thank you for using up the better part of my afternoon when I should be getting ready for our trip. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope to see you soon.

I was overjoyed to realize that your newbies do not include a huge ferocious dog!!!!! While I was enjoying your blue berry patch, the thought kept coming to my mind…’I’m so glad that isn’t a hot, stinky, panting dog running around here ruining this whole experience!’. I applaude your animal choice and am trying to brace myself for the appearance of the dog. ๐Ÿ™‚
