It was so windy this morning that Cliff and I could hardly stand upright to go for our walk.  But we managed.

After Cliff left for work, I asked Sadie if she'd like to visit the cabin; except for walking around it each day on our walk, I haven't been there for months.  Sadie, in hyperactive dog talk, answered a resounding "yes!"

Mice had been there, but not as many as in other years.  There was still poison left, and the cabin didn't smell "mousy".  The floor was littered with Asian Lady Beetles, though.  Those bugs remind me of some horror movie.  I hate them more than you can imagine.  I swept them all outside and shook the rug.

The neighbor's horses got out again this evening; the parents weren't home, and the kids were trying to capture the horses alone.  It was impossible.  I tried to help for awhile, but I'm having a bad knee day and gave up.  Then our renter, Vicki, helped them out; they finally got them back in the pasture.

I wondered if you were getting the storms part of Missouri is getting...I guess not.  I saw on the news that the wind should reach us tonight and rain too.  Take it easy on that knee.  Put your feet up and rest it awhile.  I was reminded yesterday how beneficial it is to lay on the couch and elevate your legs ...I rarely do it but it is good for circulation.

I hope you knee gets better soon. Maybe when the weather warms up some more it will get better. Sadie looks so cute getting her frisby.

Oh I know!  I hate those beetles too!  The bad thing is it gave the cute little lady bug a bad name!  My son got bit by an asian lady bug and now he's scared of the NON biting cute lady bug!   Enjoyed your pics, funny how the dogs can sniff their toys right  out! Cute little cabin...do you guys use it as a hunting cabin?

I love your cabin.  I can't wait until you start going back up there.  I enjoyed you building the fire there last year.  I love to sit & listen to the fire pop & etc.  I wish that I had a cabin like your's.

Thanks for sharing

I don't mind those bugs. What I hate more than anything are Junebugs!  I moved here after the 6th grade and saw my first ones. Ran outside one June evening, barefoot, and the light was on!  ugh!  crunch crunch!!
