It started with the usual drill. Fed the horses, turned them out, cleaned the stalls.
When I took out the wheelbarrows (of our favorite fertilizer) some of the results were in the garden next to the barn.
When I got back from my lesson (above) with Abbe, some friends stopped by for a visit. While Darrin was out in the barn riding Winnie, (Ma)Donna brought over her adorable grandaughter to see the horses.
Then it was my turn. It is the first time I've ridden her and it was no problem having a loose rein. At the trot she wants to take off, but if you give her a half-halt you can go back real softness. A great horse.
I had to pick up my new glasses before they closed at 4 and went on to Apple Creek Farm...mowing day. Gucci and the Phoebster went with me and waited patiently in the car (with a couple of potty breaks). My last 10 minutes of mowing was accompanied by rain, so I got fairly wet, and have to go back when things dry out tomorrow. I take the money received for mowing and go straight to Tractor Supply to buy hay cubes. Works out great.
Stopped to get some junk food on the way home. The dogs split a $1 burger with nothing on it.
I watched "Doubt" (movie number 2 out of 4 that I plan to watch this weekend) while I ate my dinner. Gary made it to Jamestown for the Swedish Festival, and hooked up with the Lyons, so I decided to indulge myself.
Justine's Mom did the chores tonight as she will be out of commission with her broken arm. Her entire family takes this job very seriously and they are extremely helpful (and generous).
When I went out to take off the masks I had to get into more flower photos...not quite so dark tonight.
When I got over by the Studio I took a look at the leaf casting I did on Tuesday with my class. Now, have to figure out how to peel off the leaf. I made it deep so I can use it for a bird bath in one of the gardens.
I was very happy to get back in the house...after I post this, intend to watch my 3rd movie (if I can stay awake). First I have to put in the horses and take a shower. Night all!
