Sunday and doing some well deserved ME TIME

Sunday, November 10, 2019

I am so ready for a little ME time and right now I am tired, so I am switching over to the Hallmark channel and they usually put me to sleep in about 5 minutes. And then I can say that everyone in this house is enjoying the down time. Every one always say they love those movies, but I find then really non exciting, and they always end up the same. Now give me a good action, horror, or Sci-Fi movie and you have my attention. lol

The elevators decided to close today, so there is no harvest today. So helped hubby this morning get the hay closer to the little barn, I should explain that barn a little more. It use to be a chicken house, so when I moved here in 98 we cleaned out I don't know how many years of junk, and we finished off the inside with 6 individual stalls and a larger browsing space, at the time we were breeding sheep and they were used for every ewe to give birth in, and a couple days after birth they were put back with the herd to make room for the next to-be mother. Then when we stated with Miniature Horses, and that is where they went to give birth, and also with the goats, so it was called the Birthing Barn, but now is it just called the Little Barn, as nothing anymore is going to give birth in there, except the barn cats. So now the horse and the goats are together in there along with their hay feeder. I have found out one thing here recently, that through all the moving around, the goats really are smarter the the horses, the first day they found out where they were fed grain, and the horses, Sonny and Rock have yet to really figure it out, as every morning I have to call and call them to just walk around the other side of the barn. But once they come around the corner, the light bulb goes off, and they come a-running.

Well, a new movie is on and that back ground music really is calling me, so take care and don't forget so ME time. Linda

    Sunday was a definitely "me" time kind of day. Cleaned the bathroom, but the rest of the time doing nothing and that was ok. Today (Monday) I deep cleaned the kitchen and dining room. I haven't done that in a while, and it was time. I mean I keep my kitchen clean, but this was wiping and disinfecting the counter-tops, cleaning all the appliances, sweeping and moping the floors. Took me all morning which was ok because it snowed all day and it's still snowing. We got over 6". Going to get brutally cold tonight and everything will freeze rock hard. I think we'll probably get about 10 inches once this is over.

    I have been complaining about winter for the past month and sure enough it's here way before it needs to be. I have a feeling that this is going to be another cold and snowy one. Well enough, you take care and have a great night.

    I too had some great ME time this weekend. I spent most of Saturday with my sister shopping at craft bazaars. I realized the purse I'm carrying came from one of the same bazaars a couple years ago, so I replaced it with another "new" one. I bought a small framed artwork that I'll have to post a picture of. It's done with pen and ink plus colored sea glass and looks like two little birds by a clothes on a line. It makes me smile. I have a couple of jars of sea glass I've collected on rocky New England beaches, and the picture reminds me of "Twittering Machine" by artist Paul Klee. His is little mechanical birds chattering away like birds on a telephone wire. Right now it's on my piano unless I decide to hang it.

    That's funny that the goats are smarter than the horses. Sunny and Rock will catch on.

    My ME time was having fun running around and shopping Estate Sales - I love finding beautiful things that other people no longer need and their kids don't want. Pretty sure my son won't want them either, so I will make arrangements to have the same done with my stuff when I'm gone.

    Hope you snoozed. Went to the tail end of Robert's church's rummage sale. Was able to get it at 50% off.
    Mostly books for Robert and two for me, a small vase and a figurine for outside. Moved gravel to an area where Robert lost his balance. Now it is a smooth surface.
    Stay warm. Looks like you have "weather" on the way.

    Good that you have a bit of down time. I saw harvesters going after dark yesterday on my drive home.

    Glad you had some me-time today, Linda. As for those barn cats giving birth, I'm guessing you must have at least 100 of them by now; unless they eat their young. emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad you're having a "me" day! My day has been pretty quiet also. Just got in from taking Daisy for a walk - the snow is snowing sideways which made it really cold! It was a short walk.
