Holey Moley

I'm tired.



This weekend I painted the fan stands, fan cages, and the BOTTOMS of the tack boxes (how in the world did I neglect to paint the bottoms until after I had packed them all up???)

Animals are walking.



Animals are washed and clipped. Of course, being a PIG and COWS, they will need more baths this week.





The redheaded step child is walking better. Here's to hoping she is good and tired by next Tuesday when she has to show so her attitude doesn't shine through.......



I canned 20 pints of tomatoe sauce and froze 10 dozen ears of sweet corn. On the list for tonight? Canning the 14 pints of beets that are all ready to go, they just need run through the pressure canner.



The yard is mowed, sort of (still have to do down by the road). The camper is packed. Still have to buy food but I'll wait until closer to the weekend.



And we went last night and brought Jessie's heifer and one of her steers for next year. This is the heifer, I don't have a picture of the steer but we are wondering what the heck we were thinking - he looks just like her only solid white! There is a steer/heifer show in Columbus, Ohio over Jessie's birthday - she has already let it be known that either we take these two calves to the show, or she is going back to PA with Todd for doe season. Todd has already decided we are going to the steer show.....




My mom says this is double payback time for all the years I showed a white horse. We'll be buying stock in blueing and woolite.

Thanks for the stock tip.

Glad to know that the neighbor was effectively put in his place.

You are SOOOO READY for this event.

I feel so tired just reading about what you've been up to. Try and find a few monutes to put your feet up.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Freezing Corn!?! Oh Duh! I should have bought more! I only got half a dozen when at the Amish store. Had I been thinking I would have gotten lots more!
Looking forward to seeing the new cows.

Holey Moley is right! you must go on a trot 20 hours a day!

we got 37 quarts of stewed tomatoes and froze up our corn, too. Beets? I don't think so...we're waiting for the fall fruit.

You have been so busy! Think of all the yummy food you will have this winter with all that you have put away, though. I showed a white/dappled gray mare in high school too, and I definitely feel your pain on the keeping her looking spiffy front. They are still my favorite color horses though!

Rest is coming! It's surely starting to feel like fall here! Keep it up!

Wow you are very busy. Good for you.
It is good to have things to do. I don't like being idle. I really need to find me some projects to do. I told my husband it is time to sign the kids up for a sport or something.
It is good to get out and do things.
