Another beautiful morning. Clear and comfortable.
Chores as usual....
My assistants were there to help.
For two weeks I have been trying to get a load of clay/sand delivered. We really needed to build up the run-in area in the horse barn. The delivery part was just not happening...So this morning I tried a different trucker and I had it within 90 minutes! That's what I call service.
I ordered 12 yards...they told me 1 1/2 tons/yard....does that sound right? That would be 18 tons...what do ya get...another day older and very tired.
Jill and Ralph arrived to check on the cats and immediately pitched in helping move that pile.
Fortunately, the majority was moved with a front loader, and we used a wheel barrow to build up some of the stalls.
Invited our helpers in for some tomato sandwiches....what else? Tis the season.
The sky was wild all day long.
At 2:30 our friend Kim (artist/gallery owner/Albion) stopped at the farm to buy some garlic.
Her brother owns The Crooked Door... that I have written about (so many times).
It took quite awhile...but I finished up the last pile, spreading it under the shed roof. Just like a beach.
Now it just needs to be flattened.
Dragged myself out to do evening chores.
Then I went across the street to meet the two new minis.
Harley arrived first...he was weaned today. A real cutie.
A little later Dancer was trailered in.
Both are adorable and it looks like they will get along just fine.
I'm glad Dancer is there to keep Harley company on his first night without his mama.
A very late dinner. After that PBS show last night, it is going to be hard to eat meat. This country treats it's animals so poorly it makes my stomach ache. What a sick society. I can't even write about it, it will make you cry. Pretty sad isn't it?
A fresh salad and rosa marina with tomatoes.
When I went out to put the ponies in, the moon was amazing.
The sunset was something else.
I went to Wegmans a little after 9. We were out of everything!
It's 11 pm and I have not take a shower yet...what a day.
