We are back to having an awful lot of rain...nothing that compares with the fires in Colorado that are very close to two of my blogging buddies...."Dreaming" and "Mondance." Well over 300 houses have burned to the ground and hundreds of animals are at the fairground...from chickens and horses to llamas and donkeys. Such a tragedy. How lucky are we?
Around noon I went out to check on the ponies and they were soaked to the skin, still eating grass in the pasture. Called them and and they vegged for the afternoon.
A perfect afternoon to be inside playing bridge. The only problem....sh--y cards from beginning to end.
As soon as I got home, the girls were back out in the pasture. How many times is this pond going to reappear?????? Cleaned the stalls (again) and reset things for tonight.
I got a grill for Gary for father's day. Our neighbor had to help get it out of the van and up on the back porch. It will be like having a summer kitchen. We have never had a gas grill so we have a lot to learn and will use it often. I'm open to your favorite recipes/recommendations.
Tonight he actually made dinner (inside). Veggie burgers with onions and melted cheese, organic blue corn chips with salsa and sliced apple. Tasted great! I'll bet he starts cooking more now.
I was shocked around 6:30 when the sun came out. The girls are ready to go back in pretty soon.
I decided to sell this utility trailer we have had sitting around since Gary's accident almost 3 years ago. No more truck, no horse trailer, no hitch. Time to unload. Have to paint a for sale sign tomorrow and put it out by the road. Ugly, but very useful for hauling everything from lawn tractors to hay.
Guess I'll go take care of my tucking duties, they're staring at me.
