This morning we had to go to Larry's pulmonary Appt. and a good report, his lungs are improving. And then to the farm store over there to get some cat food, and then home again. Just got Merlin in the house and the Culligan man showed up and they are the best of buds and he about got mauled by Duke and Merlin. And of course when he went outside Merlin had to make sure Duke didn't get more attention than he did, and wanted back outside, and then back in when hubby came in for dinner, so right now he is sleeping right behind my chair and the rock floor, which I imagine is cooler that and carpet. A Hubby has already warned me that we have to mow this afternoon after his nap. So better get the cape and goggles ready as the Lawn Ranger will be riding again. lol But I don't believe me will be mowing under all the trees as it will still be to wet under all those trees and don't want to tear up the ground around them.
As I was doing chores this morning it dawned on me how quite it was out there with out those noisy sheep. Kind of peaceful out there, with out them bellowing back at you every time you are trying to have a conversation anywhere around them. And it is a relief to know that Jerry, the goat buck is gone, and I don't need to worry about the girls jumping the fence and end up having babies again in Jan. Feb. and losing babies and mothers. Not a good situation last winter. I hated losing those babies, and Kitty, the nanny. I felt like I let them down, even tho they were the ones that jumped the fence. Rock and Sonny, are settling down at last now there all the mares are gone. The first few days, you could tell that they were missing all there pen mates. And of course, Rock talks every time he is up by the barn and we are outside. He love attention, and like us to know he is out there.
With it a little cooler this morning I choose to wear jeans to hubby appt. and I was a lot cautious about none of them fitting and grabbed the first pair, and wow, they slipped on so easy, so I know that I haven't gained and maybe loss a little since Spring was over and I started to wear Capri's. Since I gave up the scale and don't have the pressure on my mine all the time it has really helped with the depression that comes with knowing it is weigh in day. I don't do that anymore. It is such a relief, it is liberating.
Well, I had better move on and see what I can get into before hubby wakes up, and the Lawn Ranger arises again. So take care and have a GET day. Linda
