Skating Rinks and Poopsicles

Nikki said in her blog "Life With Boys" to be careful what you wish for. I love the open roads but the ice is difficult and the poop is awful Bob says he is going to clean stalls and the cow shed this weekend. I hope so. I don't know if my back will take the shoveling in the stalls.

The horses were glad to get out this morning. Pepper was his normal "can I irritate you" frame of mind but the other two went out docile and polite. I will have to watch Dixies eye. It was mattery this morning. She let me wipe it out before she went outside. She is so patient.

I had some kind of a bug this afternoon that kept me close to the house but got the chores done in spite of it. Didn't feel bad except at moments. The stalls are gross and if the inside horses did not need their supplements, I would not have put them in. They will survive though. We need to get a load of shavings from somewhere. Saw some on Craigslist. Need to go there again and look. We used to get them from Dumor Recycling but they can't get them anymore. I think we have enough for one more beding. Hate to buy it by the bale. We may get down to that.

Don't forget my book give away. Just comment up to next Thursday and then I will draw on Friday morning. I will have Bob do the drawing or someone besides myself. Linda at Beautiful Mustang is giving a book away too.

At Barbara's blog "Serenity Gate" did a blog about things that people might not know about her. So we could get to know her/each other better. How about giving me 2 things that I and others might not know. mine are #1 - I am crazy about shoes, high heels, #2 I drink too much diet coke (but don't try to stop me). She gave 10 but I won't try that.

See you later.


  1. Two things--the first one may make you think less of me--but I like a small cigar or pipe every now and then--a couple times a month, in the summer more.

    #2 I snowboard.

    Lea, If you find out who to get shavings from, please let me know. This by the bag thing is just not going to work. We used to get them around here--a woodworking guy--but he isn't selling during the winter--shavings are green. Let me know if you find any. :) It's a MESS out there.

  2. Poopsicles?? NASTY! 2 things? 1) I gave up Diet Pepsi for Lent and never started again. 2) I love Opera music - Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite- Il Divo is next.

  3. I'm with Nikki on this...poopsicles!?! But you got my attention though...So let's see two things you might not know about me...#1 I used to be a cheerleader back in the day and #2 Can't bring myself to read the Little House on the Prairie one had a life that good nor do they have dad like that...that I've come across :)

  4. Lea, here are two more that I didn't mention on my blog.

    #1- I'm very sensitive to floral fragrance. Gives me a headache.

    #2- I can't swim.

    Boy, am I a mess!!!!

  5. You aren't a mess Barbara, Bob can't swim either and my candles plug him up within 2 minutes. I love candles. Linda, I just can't see you smoking a pipe. That made me laugh, sorry. Not think less of you, just tickled me. Anita I understand,
