85 to 45

An extreme change in the weather!
Karen let the girls out and even tho it was raining they chose to go to the pasture instead of dining on hay under the shed roof.
We cleaned the stalls and put them back in the barn, as they were wet and Angel had the shakes.

 These girls are not used to being in during the day and it takes them awhile to settle in.

 It was so cold, Gary and I decided to have French toast for breakfast.  Just seemed right.
 He was supposed to work at Sara's, but that got cancelled because of the weather.
We both had a very relaxing afternoon.  A little Netflix and I made a huge batch of mixed fruit.  Watermelon, cantaloupe and grapes...one of our favorite go to snacks.  Had so much I gave some to Jenny along with a big bag of spinach.

Started preparing our last Blue Apron meal around 5.

 I got all the ingredients ready....

 and was done in no time at all.
 Added a side of fruit.
Loved the flavors in this dish.
 A little before 4 Karen stopped in and let the horses out while she picked the stalls.  It was still so crummy out they were put back in within half an hour.
I did chores at 7.  Fortunately the temperature in the barn was 50.
Grained all the girls, gave them more hay (they ate plenty earlier) and topped off their water buckets.
 It never fails.  If I have Gordon work up the outdoor arena, we have a monsoon.

Night all.
By the way, we have had a fire going much of the day and it feels darn good.


  1. We've got monsoon season going on here too. It's chilly too. Your dinner from Blue Apron looks good.

  2. This weather is just crazy. Didn't know you were doing Blue Apron. I've toyed with the idea...but you know...more than three ingredients ;-). Sorry about your arena...again...
