I started this Journal exactly 3 years ago today and have not missed posting once. I had over 9,000 hits before I put on my current counter and this one has reached 99,357. It amazes me that so many people would care about my little corner of the world. 2922 posts and 157 followers. Thank you....thank you...thank you. You can't imagine how much I appreciate all the people I have met, and what has been learned. Now, to meet you all in person!
So what went on at Skoog Farm today? Here we go.......
Not too bad this morning.
Got in my groove and all the ponies were fed and turned out in no time.
The temperature was pretty low, but the sun helped a lot.
Sidney was the only cat to show himself at the barn.
Finished cleaning stalls and headed back to the house around 9:30....
Jenny called and wondered if Finn could be dropped off while the rest of the crew went to a big sledding/tubing park. He had a cold and did not want to go.
He and Grampa played Sequence (Finn won) and worked on Math skills. He is a master at that....
Gucci would not leave him alone.
I had to run down to Wegmans (no milk) and look who was in the car next to me. It looked just like Sophie!
But it was Rufus! Do you know Sophie? Check my links.....
Had lunch, took a shower and class started.
Tina was closing in on her papier mache clock. All of her petals were done...so was the middle piece.
Now she has to make lots of those little thingies to go around the center.
Mel finished his Buck and has started on a bird.
Sandy had done a lot of work on her pencil drawing of the three horses.
By the end of class it was finished.
Tina spent a little time on her pastel drawing of Sandman. She is doing it on "sandpaper" and blending colors can be very frustrating. Today she was able to solve some shading problems and it will end up being beautiful.
As per usual, Gucci and Phoebe were anxiously awaiting their treats.
No sooner were they finished
when Sandy gave them another one.
By 4pm, the sun had started to melt some of the snow.
Funny how that works when it's only about 15 degrees.
Barb had chore duty...I stayed close to the fire and had the distinct duty of worming all the cats....round 2.
Dinner....leftover meatloaf, Gary wanted noodles ( I only had spags), and I made the same salad we had last night. A no brainer.
Last night I wanted to watch "Harry's Law" and fell asleep. Let's see if I can stay awake for "The Good Wife" which is on at 10.
