On the 3rd. Day............Lighthouses

On the Third Day of Christmas
I bring you 3 lighthouses. I used to collect them. Remember the old Hymn - I thank God for the Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
Got my sewing machine out so I can finish some things I have started. Nothing like my friend Marlene at Stitching By The Lake but some things I have been fiddling with. Bob will be gone Monday and Tuesday and maybe Wednesday so I can sew to my heart content. Tomorrow will be a busy day so won't get much done at all however, Sunday I will get back to it.
Tomorrow Bob is going to a funeral down in Rosalia. Mary Lee Tollett was the mother of my roommate in college and my maid of honor when we got married. Patty died a year ago of bone cancer. Mary Lee played mom to me when I would go home for weekends from WSU. She always welcomed me. She was in her late 80's.
I have a luncheon, awards dinner for the past horse show season. I did not show but I do stuff for the year end awards. Like shopping for crystal items on a budget. I have found the best place is Penny's. I also sponsor a sportsmanship award and I get to award it. Then in the early evening Bob and I have the Panhandle Back Country Horsemen Christmas party and dinner. So by the time we get home we will be tired.
Today when I put Sage out, I took her out the other barn door. I had to lead her full length of the barn and out the other end. There is a lot of stuff in there. I didn't know what she would think but she came right with. Got a little snorty but didn't bolt or anything. Then I put her in that way. She was still a little snorty but went right to her stall.
Haugen went to his new home today. I would not want to pull a horse trailer on our rode but Tony did not seem to mind. Haugen did not want to get caught too bad but once he had a halter on he just led right out and into the trailer. That made me feel so good. And Cash's new owner came over and petted on him and wormed him. He is leery of pulling his trailer so Cash may be here for a while. That is OK. I thought he might get a little upset when Haugen left. He whinnied once and I gave him some oats and that kept him occupied for a bit. Nothing more the rest of the day.
Cold and foggy here. I don't like fog too much but don't mind the cold so bad. Our low tonight is to be about 19.
