Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th today. I'm not the least bit superstitious so it doesn't make a whole lot of difference to me what the date is. I'm just glad when I know what day of the week it is, yesterday when Funsize was here doing chores I thought it was Friday and it was Thursday. A mind is a terrible thing to lose isn't it? :0(

This is a draft that I wrote when my blog was frozen. Just so you know I haven't REALLY lost it and still think that it's Friday the 13th!

Went to the grocery store yesterday and they had some of the biggest Macintosh apples I have ever seen! Look how it compares to a regular size Granny Smith apple! You can guess where it went next.......

It only took four apples to make 6 cups! No calories in this baby....... This is one of my favorite rolling pins.

I popped that pie into the oven and before long the aroma in the kitchen was just mouthwatering!

Afterwards I was trying to get some work done on my computer and Noodles decided to take his nap right on my desk! He is such a good boy! :0)

My computer is frozen right now but I am hoping I can save this as a draft and then post it afterwards. My computer guy is working on it so I hope I'm up and running today sometime. I told him that I was going through withdrawal not being able to do my blog and get all of your comments! Aren't comments fun? It's so nice to hear from all of you. I don't have a blogroll of dozens of people but the ones I have are so faithful about reading about my not so terribly exciting life and leaving me nice comments. I know there are some out there that don't leave a comment.........Husband for one........sister for another........and a few more that either aren't hooked up with Blogger or just like to read not write. Either way that's fine! :0)

Buddy is doing well right now. I hate to say it out loud as I know I'm still on a somewhat roller coaster but right for now he's walking much better and the farrier is talking about putting some padded shoes on him within the next couple of weeks! YEEHAW!!!! There again I am thrilled at all the kind comments everyone has left for me concerning this ordeal with Buddy. Doesn't he look lonely in the riding ring alone? Actually the other guys come over and visit with him and he walks to what ever side of the pasture they are on and watches them. I can't put anyone in with him yet as they might get 'horsing' around and he could reinjure his feet.

They do act like naughty little boys sometimes. Nick was bored yesterday and tore the barn apart, well whatever he could find to pull out onto the floor. My carpenters made me an enclosed area to keep stuff in as Nick is notorious for getting into mischief!

I caught him in the act of picking on one of the little boys, Kipper, although Kip can hold his own and put the boots right to any of the horses that bother him or look at his food! NOBODY touches Kips food. NOBODY.

Actually you don't get a chubby little body like this by missing any meals! heehee! He's just soooooo cute and has the cutest little personality to go along with it.

My neighbors have a beautiful flag on their front lawn and I have been trying to get a good picture of it on breezy days with nice clouds in the sky. It's not cooperating and usually flies backwards but you can see what I'm trying to do.

Well hopefully I can save this or you will hear me yelling as it took a long time to upload the pictures as Blogger was having a sluggish day.

I don't believe in luck at all,so Friday the 13th doesn't scare me either.
You're making me hungry for apple pie...guess I have to make something with apples soon...I'm not the best fruit pie maker!
Kipper is so cute....Thank you for visiting my blog and for all your comments,they're encouraging!

That pie's calling my name!

Susie said...

I'm so glad you took all the calories out of that apple pie. It looks absolutely delish!

Donna said...

Apple pie is Cliff's favorite. Of course, with us trying to maintain our weight, it's a very rare treat around here. Good news about Buddy; let's hope he continues to improve.

I've never had anything terrible happen on Friday the thirteenth.

Noodles is a crazy cat!!

why do they LOVE our keyboards?

great photos, I missed you posting everyday.

Buddy seems to be getting better, he looks great AND the farrier talking about 'padded shoes' is a very good improvement :)

The apple pie looks delicious! I used to make pies all them time when the kids were younger but they keep me running so much now that I haven't made a pie in years now....hmmm...maybe it's time to make some time to bake a pie again.

great blog. Sorry I missed it Friday but I was out doing Moose stuff for our big weekend (I will report on my blog).

Happy Buddy seems to be doing well. I am still praying.

The pie looked wonderful. Before my surgery, apple pie was one of my favorites. Now I can only dream!!!

Tammy said...

That pie looks so scrumptious! That's my hubby's very favorite!

So glad you're back posting and that your computer is being nice to you again!
So good to get the update on Buddy! :)
Have a wonderful week!

This is a wonderful post--full of all kinds of great life "things"

I agree with the comments comment (Is that redundant?) I love comments! I also have family members who read often, but do not comment.

In fact, my brother told me that he reads some of my blogging friends also. I think he is a frustrated famer--Most of his life he has owned a printing business, but has a little "farm" place in the country where he has spent many weekends! Anyway, he loves the horse stories! :-)

I'm with ya on the whole friday the 13th thing. Its a really good thing too. Remember the picture of our two new kittens that DH brought home on July 8th?? WELL my 7 year old son came home with a 8 week old solid black kitten on Friday.. THE 13th.. I kid you not he became the proud owner of a solid black kitten on Friday the 13th.. I have to keep LOL about that one. It's a cut little thing though.. ONLY I"m not sure what I"m going to do with 3 kittens(2 9 week old ones and an 8 week old one) Plus my almost 2 year old cat. too many kitties for my tiny house. but they are fun and the kids are loving them.

That apple pie is making me very hungry. YUM
