Another beautiful day almost done and dusted!

What have I done today? Sod all really but I did really, really clean my bathroom, and I have now turned everything out of the cupboards and drawers in mt sitting room so I have to clear it all up. Only way I get anything near a spring clean.
WishI wasn't such a book hoarder. There is a pile of books to go to the charity shop, and about 10 times as many to be re-stacked on the soon to be clean shelves. I want to paint the sitting room, if I dump everything in the centre and cover it it won't take long. The ceilings are low and I can reach without climbing up and down ladders.
I tell you, if I won the lottery I would have a house designed for me that had tiled floors with a slope to them, tiled walls and plastic furniture so all I had to do was power wash it whenever.

Yesterday I had a big bake day, first thing I made a load of savoury and then baked some cakes. Made a load of Brownies. Felt very virtuous. I made a delicious looking Maderia cake, took it out the tin and left it on the cooker. Went to the loo - all of a couple of minutes and as I walked out so the lab dived past me, she had eaten half of it. I could have killed her. She was locked in the kennel and had no supper.
Then another baked cake I left on the back of the cooler - piping hot, and Em's terrier jumped up and ate the top off it. No one will know if I serve it upside down!
At least the savouries were in the fridge!

The remains of the Maderia cake were OK but I will do something slightly different next time. Years since I made one.

Oh well off to have a shower, I want to be up early in the morning and make a start in here before attacking the planting in the garden.

SUSAN the reason I said about the mask is because you have a man in a million and his eyes could so easily be damaged A friend of mine damaged his eyes badly through not using a mask whilst welding!

Smile TB Lover

To QOS GREAT pics of your horses. How did you get them to show up on this thread? I am not computer savvy, but if and when I ever get another horse I'd love to post pics like several of you'all have. P.S. I guess I need a digital camera. I only have a 35 mm film one.

I ordered this type of room for my garage in my new house, for washing the dogs. I was over-ruled by my builder and my husband. But, I got a faucet and drain in the basement!

So, don't forget to request a drain in the lowest part of the slope, with a removable tile to tidily hide it away!

Foxhunter, thanks I will tell him you said that, and also about the mask...
he is one stubborn man though so don't count on him changing any time soon...

I have to go to drill and I am sick...
achy, fever, stomach cramps and terrible headache...
Who wants to ride for me? It's only in the 50's, Patsy will be full of herself...

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

Susan - how exciting you're getting your fence in! Ahhhh supportive hubbies are worth their weight in gold. I agree with you both, a diamond or a horse? A horse any day of the week, regardless of the size of the diamond :) I beg to differ with the old saying, diamonds are NOT a girl's best friend.

Had my dressage lesson yesterday, was fabulous! I rode an amazing boy, trained up so high that I gave the wrong aid and he tried to pirouette! LOL! I was like, hey, look at me! Lovely horse, am now thinking maybe if the owner wants to sell....

Rode Grace this morning, spooked all over the place again. I rode in my dressage saddle, not the new saddle, so it wasnt the saddle last week. I think she's coming into heat. Two other mares in the barn are also witchy, so I'm pretty sure the sunshine this weekend has brought out the "best" in them.

Hello everyone! I will be 40 in August but thought I would come check out this thread a little early.

I know I am close to 40 because I am either becoming super smart, or just chicken^&*%. I bought a new toy (early birthday present).

Gone are the days where i jump behind mares I barely know to flush, infuse, palpate or Ultra-sound without a set of these :)

Unloaded them today and hubby is building a little lab for them. I am so excited :)



Only horse people would get so excited over a set of stocks :)

Nice to meet everyone!

Kristine

Texas girl...

This is actually our bush hog tractor. Unfortunately, the Big Tractor's three point hitch is broken so we had to use it...
it's kind of small for the job, but got it done!
My wife believes in me geting exercise and would say. What do you want a posthole borer for? when you have a perfectly good spade and all weekend to do it in. she would promptly turn around and walk away. While I lift my bottom lip off the ground so as not to pick up any stones or horse poo

Welcome Kristine! And congrats on your very own set of stocks!

With age comes experience, and with experience comes knowledge...we are all very very smart now
