A different kind of morning.
Meet Brittney! Stephanie and Jennifer gave her to us as a gift for the next month and she will help us for an hour and a half three times a week. Boy does she do nice work. First she helped me in the barn dumping the wheel barrow and raking...then she attacked the end of the driveway, where I had cut down some tall weeds and half dead day lilies. What a gift from our two very thoughtful daughters. I still can't believe that Gary and I are both out of commission at the same time.
I saw this little guy on my way to the studio and thought I would try a macro shot for a change.
Only four students today....their work was amazing.
It's a good thing we had a couple of fans going, as the temperature was climbing by the minute.
Had lunch and got hooked into watching the Olympics. Tried to take a nap....made myself get up and go down to Christina's World for a swim.
I was in the water for 15 minutes when it started to rain (the sun was out). The sky started to change and I could hear thunder in the distance so I gave up.
A very simple dinner tonight.
Not in the mood for fancy. We talked about Sandy's potato salad during class earlier
and I just had to make some.
Before we ate, the temperature dropped 20 degrees and a monsoon blew through. A major downpour with thunder and lightning, so I went out and waded through the paddock so I could put the horses in the barn and close the doors to the indoor and run-ins (that were getting soaked).
I am so tired of being tired! Had some good news tho...they tacked on 8 more physical therapy sessions through my insurance company and I am going to take full advantage. What a long haul this has turned into.
Of course I am on my way to the couch.
