After chores Abbe was keeping tabs on
Moon while she was getting groomed before her lesson with Elizabeth. Remember how filthy she and Abbe were last night?
Very interesting ground work today...as Tina says "Elizabeth speaks horse."
At 11 I went down to the Village for a meeting regarding the mural we raised matching funds for (Stone Soup Auction). This is Stacy Kirby...the artist who will design and paint it for us.
Luckily, David, from Bridle Wreath Farm, was able to replace the tie rod on the lawn tractor. Finally, I've found someone who is really good at solving mechanical problems.
Spent some time on the phone with my buds and never really got a chance to nap and read.
Around 5, Bing and Ruth showed up with 4 visitors who are here to attend a wedding. During the winter they all live in Florida and come up North for the summer. Ruth introduced one of them to my blog and she has been reading it for quite some time. Her name is Jerry and she is holding the camera in the picture below. She knew everything about the farm...the animals, the gardens...everything. Boy did we hit it off. I invited her to come back and spend a few days with us. Hope she takes me up on it.
This is the 7th blogging friend I have met in person (not counting all my local pals).
They had dinner reservations and couldn't stay long. I'm pretty sure we will meet again (she lives in Cape Cod).
Gucci was enjoying all of the extra attention.
Gary and I absolutely love meeting people like this. Wish they were going to be around long enough to come over for dinner. I wonder if I can talk them into staying an extra day.
Speaking of dinner....comfort food.
A nice salad and some sauce I had frozen the last time we had spags.
Almost fell asleep before I went out to do chores.
Gary will be planting all this tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
Who knows...we may get more rain tonight.
Tucked those girls in for the duration.
As I was leaving the barn I noticed a pair of ducks in the now flooded corner of the pasture. Perfect.
Sidney noticed them too.
