Once again, Masterpiece was right there waiting for me.
While I was cleaning the stalls, it started to rain and the ponies came in for shelter.
Jill got here before I was finished. The kitties and I were very happy to see her.
We closed the doors on both ends of the run-in off the tack room and let Sophie, Newbie and Lily go wandering for the first time.
They checked things out and even went under the doors to see what they have been missing.
All three went in and out. Let's see if they know where home is.
It continued to ran on and off, but wasn't too bad when Tina and Judy arrived for class.
Around 11 it really started to pour....hard. A little before noon it was still coming down in buckets and we were trapped in the Studio Barn. Fortunately, Judy had her cell phone and we were able to call Gary to see if he would bring out a couple of umbrellas.
To the rescue.....
In the house for lunch....the usual....
pickled beets (with a pickled egg) and a tomato sandwich. Call me crazy!
Around 2 I went out to see if Sophie, Lily and Newbie were back in the tack room.
Sweet Lily was the only one I could find.
Started pulling out some day lilies and then went in to gab on the phone for awhile. I actually spoke to Gail, one of my blogging buddies. What fun! All about horses. I think I should do this more often.
Made a very simple dinner.
Sauteed a big onion, boiled some sliced carrots, threw in the pasta and stirred in some frozen peas at the very end. Drained and tossed with a little olive oil, butter and romano cheese. Easy and delish.
Jill was kind enough to do chores tonight...I really enjoyed the break.
Before she left, she found Newbie upstairs in Gary's barn and Lily was in and out. No Sophie. I will check to see if she returned when I go out to tuck the ponies in. I'm betting that she will be there.
So much for today....Have to go across the street to check out the set up for the two minis moving in tomorrow. Many pictures to follow.
