I haven't accomplished a thing....

OK, I finally did dishes an hour ago.  But other than that, I haven't done a single useful thing.  No school, so the girls were here all day.  But since Cliff was here, I was able to sneak in a short ride on Blue this morning, a little over an hour.

The girls and I hadn't played on the railroad tracks for ages, and it's such a nice day I figured this was the time to do it.  It was a little risky having a fire, but I was careful and watched closely.  The girls started cooking each and every hot dog they were going to eat, but they just couldn't get the knack of it.  Or smoke would get in their eyes.  Or their hand got too hot.  So they'd start cooking the hot dog and I'd finish. 

Once we returned to the house, I took some time to work with Libby.  I put the saddle on her yesterday, just to see how she'd do.  No problem.  Today I not only put it on her, but drew the cinch around her belly, loosely.  That little lady doesn't get excited about anything.  Her former owners told me they'd had a saddle on her, so it wasn't her first time ever.  Still, she amazed me. 

I'm going to have to find a cheap, smaller-sized saddle someplace.  I won't be riding Libby until April, at least; but she needs to get used to the feel of a saddle, and Blue's is far too big.

I've not done anything, myself....except go to the dentist.  I went, came back, and took a nap.  The exciting life I lead, huh?  :)

I could eat one of those hot dogs right now. I can almost smell that campfire.LOL. The neighbors behind us is burning a brush pile of some sort and the wind is blowing it into our yard. I got smoke all over my top so I had to go and change. I like all your pictures. Libbly seems to really be doing good. Helen

That would be my kind of outing. Railroad tracks and pennies. Paula

I have to disagree with you.  You did a LOT of useful things.  Just ask the two little girls who got to cook out with their grandma!
