It's Time For Some Chili

Another weird day.  Sunshine and rain....coolish.  Gary went to yoga and out to lunch and I did things around the house.  Lots of laundry, setting up a couple of bedrooms for company and a couple new mattresses.  Also went back out to the barn to wash windows before Gary installed them.

Every morning Gary comes out to the barn to do water and dump the wheelbarrow for me.  Today he also brought in shavings and installed plexiglass in all the windows.

While he was gone I made a big batch of vegetarian chili.

This afternoon Janet had a lesson with Dawn from the Renaissance Equestrian Center so I raked the arena before she got here.
Rebel and his pony were hanging out next to the indoor while Ronin was working.

The in -hand work they have been doing is really helping his body.

When I got back to the house, Sidney was sacked out on Gary's lap....he had been snoozing too.
Janet was teaching her Judo class and I put the ponies in a little after 6.

The inside of the barn felt so good with the plexiglass in the windows.

To the East.....
to the West.  I think we will be getting more rain tonight.  I'm worried about my pals (Billy and Alex) who live on the west coast of Florida with 3 horses, a donkey, dogs, cats and bunnies.  I couldn't handle hurricanes....will take the snow instead.

We had corn bread, a salad and the chili for dinner.  So good.

Night all.

Where's the Rainbow?

In the 50s and pouring with the sun out.

While Janet and I were cleaning the stalls Ronin decided to come in and wander around every single one...including the hay stall.

They put up with a lot of rain today.

At 1 some friends came over for a little Jam.  Three of us played ukes and Doug played bass.  Linda brought along a quilt she just finished so I could check it out.
I had put the heater on earlier and it was so warm we had to turn it off for the rest of the afternoon.
This is the first time we played together and went over 3 hours worth of songs.

Little Wonder had no problem drum!

We had our first new blossom since moving the plants inside.  It was so windy this afternoon it would have been blown off on the porch.
At chore time Seamus was soaked and muddy....again.

The house was cold, so we started a fire this afternoon.
Chicken and gravy on our home grown spuds for dinner.
Night all.
