My birthday is next week. November 17th. I’ll be 51 years old (why do people get all coy about their ages?) My husband asked me what I want. He wasn’t thinking of more animals, but, of course, I am. Although I’d love a burro, a couple of horses, and two Pilgrim geese, I won’t ask for them. The barns are full. But I could fit one of these in the house.
I owned a hedgehog a few years ago. Bought it at a poultry show (you never know what you’ll come home with!) It was adorable. But also nocturnal. Very noisy play at night. And quite messy, stinky poo. Still, I’d welcome another one into our home.
So, I still don’t know what to answer my husband. I could use a new pair of winter barn boots, but that’s not exactly a “birthday wish” sort of gift. I know – I’ll ask for homemade goat milk soap. It’s indulgent and small farm-based. There’s a nice selection on Etsy.com.
Then again, we do have room for geese.
