Our day never warmed up. Nevertheless, everything is done. I will move the lambs to the house in the morning...then they can dismantle the greenhouse til I get home. The ponies were all moving slow...I hate how the vaccinations make them feel but as a teenager I sat one night in a barren pasture and consoled an unknown horse who was down and thrashing with encephalitis. All my babies ate their dinner well and should be back to their fiesty selves in a couple of days. I let kitty out a few hours later when he seemed unaffected. He promptly caught a big plump rat and was so enthralled when I praised him that he ran directly to me with it dangling from his mouth, twining through my legs...then deposited it behind my car which I needed to move out...so.. I moved his rat, backed out, picked up the mail and returned to find he was back in his spot enjoying his catch...he grudgingly moved til I parked the car and resumed his dinner.
For me...I decided that swiss cheese, miracle whip and a tortilla tasted really good about 30 minutes before Mom had dinner ready...I ate about a third, apologised for not being hungry and put it up for tommorro. Mom wasn't upset and I was glad I had sense enough not to try to eat it when I really wasn't hungry...even though it did taste good.
Now...to enjoy a night's rest and really nice knowing that I have fed late enough that I won't have to get up at 10 or 11 and feed lambs again. Yay.
