Just popping in to say hello...
TG, how terrifying! So glad you found Badger!
WWarrior, how is it going with the new employment opportunities? I betcha you find something amazing.
DBA all bloody with a Kotex on his head? Huh?
CClop, love hearing about your farm activities with the animals and gardening. Makes me think, "Ah, maybe in another life..." :)
It was a quiet weekend for me, trying to get over this respiratory infection. Got antibiotics Saturday and am just grateful that I managed to wake up this morning after taking Nyquil last night! I thought, what's worse, having a miserable sleepless night, or oversleeping for work? Managed to get a good night's sleep AND wake up on time.

Scared hubby too, this weekend - just a little....when I till my garden over every fall, I rotate dirt in and out mixed with manure and whatnot - some plants are just mulched in where they stand and as a result, they come back the following spring on their own like spinach, tomatoes, lettuce and sort of just appear in random places in the garden.

So there was one spinach plant that popped up and had some decent leaves on it - the others have been just recently planted by seed and are still tiny - and hubby LOVES spinach in his Saturday morning omelettes. He KNOWS that the other stuff isn't mature enough to pick but he gives me a hard time b/c there isn't any in the house to eat. So I go and pick a few leaves off of this plant and put it in his omelette and he remarks on the fact that he knew I was hiding some spinach out there somewhere and this was proof of that fact ...

I told him that the spinach I planted wasn't ready yet - this plant LOOKED like spinach, but I wasn't sure - could have just been some sort of weed....I think he turned 10 shades of green after I said that...he actually believed me for a moment that I would really put something like that in his food. LOL!

So really I scored TWO this weekend - I'm sure there will be hell to pay for it eventually. I never stay on top....

Wow, he really believed you! You could have played mad at that ;)

Glad Badger is home safe!

It' so windy here, we have random peoples trash cans in our front yard...

Clippity, 50 asparagus?? Gosh, you are wonderwoman! We went to the nursery and were told to wait another week. Luckily so since it'll be in the 30s overnight all week!

Today DH is taking me out for a surprise for our anniversary. He won't tell me what, so I'm excited to see...

Sadly my old man decided it would be a great idea to act like a turd under saddle yesterday with DH, so him and I had a talk. At the end he was well behaved. My young girl was behaving well so I told him he was being upstaged by a 21/2 year old ;)

Hey, I appreciate you guys taking it easy on me about Badger. I feel like a horrible mommy for not checking on him all week.. huge lesson! Just because he's under someone else's nose, doesn't mean they even notice if he's dead or alive.. He won't be neglected like that again.

I knew better than to post that on open forum, I would have been EATEN ALIVE for that...

It was a stressful, scary day .. and I can't wait to get all my horse's home.

On another note, we had to put a hotwire up around Gunner's pen to keep him from fence walking.. he is HELL on a fence.. but one little pop and he knew exactly that his fence pawing days were over..

TG, things happen even if you are around most of the time. That one hour in a 24 hour period you're not there is when they get in trouble

I knew a horse who would pace the fence so bad, he knew exactly where each post was and walked with his head sideways, lifting it over every post without looking. We were joking about fencing him in on the part we wanted to turn into a road, so he could harden it. His path was rock solid.

Just walked the dogs though the wind is getting stronger, so trash cans are sliding down the road. I also feel like I might get an ear infection now Hopefully that will go away. Also, hopefully our activity won't include anything that needs me to balance or else I might get blown away - literally.

Green Broke
Yes, things happen. We've all been there. Whenever I'm stressed as all get out and just want to go home and pass out, it's difficult to find the motivation to go feed. I have Henny and my pony at two different places so our situations are similar. But once I get there, they help me relax and unwind. :)

It's officially snowing in Iowa Park, where I live. Hasn't made it here to Wichita Falls yet, but they're only 8-10 miles apart, won't be long! I may have to make a batch of chili for supper!

Chili sounds good.. I checked the weather and we're supposed to be down in the 30's all week at night... who knew??

But, no precipitation... so we'll just be cold for no reason ... and burn some more firewood!
