At 8:30 this morning a big truck backed into the driveway to deliver my new washing machine.
They were supposed to get here between noon and 4.
This is the first time we have invested in a better quality machine and I'm going to love it.
Minor detail. The tub is huge (with no agitator) and so deep I can't reach the bottom! What was I thinking? Fortunately it works like a charm. Put in a load, press power, press start and off it goes. It knows how much water is needed and I don't have to set anything. So efficient.
A little after 10 Ben, our farrier, arrived to trim Abbe and Berlin. Abbe is still off in her hind right and was not real happy. Flexor tendon...a little swollen...did not want to put her heel down.
She got through it, and while Berlin was trimmed
I soaKed Abbe's leg in cold water, gave her a rubdown with Absorbine and put on a rap for the rest of the day.
I was doing some paperwork when the phone rang. It was Bobbie, calling from Java. She informed me that they were making Apple Cider Chicken Salad today (which is my favorite salad ever) so at 1:30 I drove down for a late lunch. We trade hay for lunches. A good deal for both of us.
It was very hot and muggy when I got home...around 87 degrees.
Seymour was lounging in the driveway.
Too hot to make dinner.
Chores around 7.
Unwrapped Abbe's leg and gave her another rubdown with Absorbine...no wrap tonight.
Gary spent a couple hours planting in the garden...too hot for me.
A sandwich and chips for dinner with a big glass of organic tomato juice, topped with fresh lemon.
