It was really windy today, and that made it a little difficult for Cliff and his helpers at times. But they got a lot accomplished. The 15-year-old twins next door took turns helping: Travis, the calmer of the two, was here at the beginning. Then Tyler showed up, and Travis disappeared. At one time, they both went to the pasture to play baseball. Kevin was here to help Cliff, though.
In spite of the wind, I would have taken a ride on my horse; but he really does need to be shod. He was scheduled to get shoes last Friday, but the farrier called and postponed because the transmission is out of his pickup. Now we're scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. I groomed Blue and cleaned his feet. He always enjoys that sort of attention.
Natalie and I went to the pasture with Sadie, and I scouted around in a couple of places for mushrooms. I didn't find any, but I really didn't expect to, this early.
This coming Friday, my friend Joanna is coming to visit, from Virginia. She wants to step into the life she reads about in my journal, and I'm going to try and see that she accomplishes that. I'm not buying any new appliances, sheets or curtains. I'm not gilding the lily. What she sees is what she gets. (Well, I did sweep the mouse-poop out of the cabin... but other than that).
Knowing Joanna, that'll be exactly what she had in mind.
