Fresh. Air.

 A very long Town Board meeting tonight.
 Night all.

Today Little Wonder's foster Mom sent me this photo.
He and the other pup were only 8 weeks old.
Two different litters and a big difference in size.
What an adorable shot.

Sweating With The Oldies...

Fortunately, I woke up at 4am and started soaking the beet pulp
and alfalfa pellets for the girls.  And fortunately when I did chores
last night
I cleaned out the water trough and put some water in it.
When it's this dry, we can't fill it quickly or the pump will turn off
and we end up with mud.  Figured I would add more this morning.

Why was this smart?
(I must have been getting some vibes). This morning the power went off a little after 
7am.  That meant no water, no flushing toilets, no fans, no nothing!
Before going out to the barn we closed all the windows to keep it
as cool as possible.

 When I got back in the house I had some granola with the
blueberries (my friend Hanny brought over yesterday) and did nothing.
 I have neglected the outdoor arena, it has been so dry...
  weeds are growing and apparently they are tasty.

 Around 11 the power came back on and I was very relieved.
Made a quick trip down town to get gas, grain and shavings,
then added more water to the trough.  Of course it was all muddy
and I had to dump several buckets before it cleared.
There is talk of rain tonight.  I'll believe it when I feel it.
Rochester got swamped, had very high winds and trees were blown down.
Nothing here....yet.
I managed to make dinner.  Gary grilled some pork and I made zucchini parm (from our garden) and a tomato/cucumber salad with green onions, Greek olives, crumbly
blue cheese, balsamic vinegar and oil.  A real meal.
Now I wish I had a peanut butter cookie.
Time for a shower.
Night all.

I just looked at my counter and am approaching 1 million hits!
Maybe by the end of summer.
