Today Brie was fussing with our Cornish friends' truck. They visit from Cornwall every winter but leave their vehicle and travel trailer here parked about 150 yards from our house on our property.
I walked that four times, once with the wheelbarrow and the battery we replaced for them. I look forward to their visits. We always share Earl Grey tea and cook for each other and tell stories. They are enchanted with the wild west, and know a lot of history. We will set up our shooting range and share our cowboy weaponry with them when the blokes come. Lillian is a tiny slip of a gal in her 70's but she has SPUNK!

Russ and I took Minnie for a walk a week ago. She is such a fat pork chop that she should be walking every day. We have a temporary pen that we move all over in the summer and we will walk the llamas to the pen and the goats run back and forth. We will probably be taking them for more walks this winter.

Liz! Do you still take out your menagerie for a walk! Ilove the image of the llamas and ggoats all trailing behind you!

Today we worked in the house, cleaning off tabletops and putting stuff in storage so that we can build desk space and shelves. We took our breaks in the sunshine. The weather is lovely!

That image is not too pretty! emoticon Tanny and Gino (our Maremmas) can't wait until the goats and sheep are done with their morning feed. As soon as the goats and sheep leave the barn, those two go charging in looking for any pieces left over (usually not much because we don't give the stock much right now). I think they just like the molasses in the feed. They are like two naughty kids trying to get their hands into the cookie jar without being caught!

Our problem with having the coop and the goat barn in the same pen is that Minnie can still squeeze her fat butt through the chicken coop door and she gets in there and eats all the chicken food. She is so fat that one day I think she is just going to POP!

He may have to if he doesn't get some inside chores done for me and if he doesn't take a night off (he has not been home for one evening in the past two months)!!!

Among the tasks today, will be going outside and planning where the future goat barn and chicken coop should go. I have heard that they should be separated because hiken poop can taint goat;s milk if they start nesting in the alfalfa.
Hey Janice. Wasn't it your hubby who built the deluxe chicken coop? Weren't you wondering if he was going to move his TV and barco lounger in there too?

I need to rake the excess hay from around the feeders. There is so much piled on the ground that the goats and sheep could step over the fence (well, that's a little bit of an exaggeration, but it's getting deep)!

spent some time stoking the burn barrel with wood scraps that were laying about the yard. Moved some lumber out of the way and made the area a bit more tidy. It is still very warm out here in West Texas, 86 degrees. The scraps had glue on them, not something we could use in the wood stove.

Spent the morning working in the barnyard. Am heading back out for evening chores. I miss doing this during the week - I go to school at 6:30 and don't usually get home until after 7:00 pm. I miss the summer and spending the days outside.

We went outside to observe the mud! It is an unusual phenomenon! No work today, its Sabbath. Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!

I don't know how hot it was outside, but we worked two hours on the roof before taking a break. We sat onthe rooftop and watched a redtail catching a thermal in sweeping circles.
Then I started seeing bright flecks and sparkles of light. I wasn't dizzy but Brie made me climb down the ladder and we called it a day.

We worked from 9:30 til 12:30 on the roof. At lunch break, Kent informed us that it as 102 degrees outside and would NOT let us go outside. He said that would be insane. WE can worktomorro! He grilled us some chicken breasts and we watched part of a stupid movie called Nitrate. (It only cost him $1.00, no loss!) Later in the evening we made spaghetti with meat sauce and watched Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford in The Frisco Kid. It's a hilarious movie about a Rabbi from Poland, who in 1849, must get to San Francisco to led a congregation. A bank robber played by a very young Harrison Ford, who, out of a sense obligation, ends up escorting him across the continent.
It's a gem of a movie!

Saturday was nice. We had an early morning cookout followed by target shooting.
The wind started pushing our bullets around. So we finished up at one pm. A few hours later the wind was rocking Kent's trailer (we were watching volcano) and it started to rain. We jumped in the Jeep and tore across the field to close our windows. It was still hot and sunny outdoors, so our clothes were immediately dry.
Yesterday was too windy. We had wanted to build a roof, but opted out as a safety precaution.
Today was windy on and off. We took our Jeep to another neighbor's house to get parts for our Jimmy. Danged if the Jeep didn't quit! I walked a quater of a mile back to the neighbor's house. He gave us a ride and Brie as able to return with her truck and repair the broken wire.
We didn't get the part of their Jimmy/Blazer, but Brie was able to remove the wheel nut. That gal is stronger than most men!
Janie! It sounds like your knee is mending well!

It has cooled down from 105 degrees tp 95 degrees!
Our outside activities wil include target shooting tomorrow and roof building the next day.
We bought more lumber today. we should have it all framed ten days from Sunday.
Once that is accomplished, we have many tasks at our place, which we have not given much attention while helping neighbors..
