It’s been a while since our Sage Words celebrations were little more than a rushed cup of coffee together and the unveiling of a chosen phrase. This week signalled a return to the norm with cinnamon toast a la Farm Girl and plenty of time to dally.
We were initially flummoxed by her choice of quote but she was well able to explain her thinking.
Dave’s death left us feeling very sad; it was, indeed, a great loss and one we still feel keenly.
But it opened the Homestead to a gain in the shape of Miss Xanthe.
Hopefully her arrival will result in the departure of recent feed-bag-gnawing visitors, in reality no small gain, and Farm Girl’s quote will prove true.
