What a misty morning.
Lorrie and Moon had a lesson after chores.
Abbe and Berlin were trying to sniff the water with bleach I dumped outside the paddock when I was cleaning a water trough for Angel and Maggie. Don't know why this is of interest.
Then it was chow time.
Finished preparing the run-in before calling it quits.
At 11 I picked up my friend Helen (from Scotland), who is here with her son Alex.... visiting her sister...Andrea of horsedum. She is going to stay at the farm for a couple of days and we plan to cook and take in some activities in Brockport.
This morning I introduced her to the Seymour Library, and being a storyteller, she headed straight for Fairytales in the children's section.
She immediately found a book of Favorite Fairy Tales Told in Scotland.
From there, we went out to lunch at the Stoneyard....
and split a Cubano Sandwich. We were both starving and it filled the bill.
Made a quick stop at Bittersweet.
Hit Wegmans on the way home, and when we got back to the farm it was so cold we asked Gary to start a fire, our first of the season.
On Monday evenings Helen listens to a radio show in Scotland and she frequently emails in requests. Today she tuned in live, through this computer, and had the radio host dedicate a song to us. Pretty wild that we could do it all from here.
Needless to say, we were not hungry for dinner (poor Gary). I put the horses in for the night around 7
and thought I was taking a video of them coming in.....wrong.
We finally ate a very simple supper at 7:30. Soup and a salad with some delicious bread that Helen brought. Just enough. I promised to make eggplant parm tomorrow night.
We are going to take Helen to see the Dady Brothers, who perform Irish music. They will be the entertainment at a volunteer luncheon on Tuesday.
As for now...tea and sitting by the fire.
