The cats and I are wearing earplugs as there is a lot of banging and clanging going on around here. My sun room is gone and they are now in the process of rebuilding it.
You may notice that they put a railing across my sliding glass doors so that I would not walk out through there and land on my head.
It’s hard having everything in such a mess but it will be worth it when it is all done as it is going to be winterized and made just like a part of the house with heat, good windows and no breezes blowing through in January! :o) We have all of the family get togethers here so it will be nice to be able to use it for that at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is going to be bigger which is nice as it seems to be the place we congregate.
Miss T and I have been doing a lot of trail riding this week as the weather has been good. Our weather pattern is such that it is good during the week and then cold and rainy on the weekends!!! We did get to the lake on Saturday but I didn’t have my plants to set out so took a nice nap on the sofa while the Hubs reclined in his new recliner chair for Father’s Day.
Miss K is coming along good with her riding lessons. In this shot she is collecting rocks that I place on the fence posts and she puts them in the little bag attached to the saddle horn. It’s just to practice stopping and starting and bending over to reach the rocks to work on balance. It’s a game she and Miss T like to play.
Little Bud is such a patient ole’ boy. My camera had died but after this they rode bareback together, T was facing the back and K was facing the front! It was a hoot! Then they practiced Round the World and walking with their arms out from their sides. I would like to have a dollar for every time I say ‘put your hands down’! ha! I have tried everything, come on horse people give me some ideas!!! I’ve done the hold your hands down like you were playing a piano, holding an ice cream cone, even with your belly button etc etc… HELP!
More flowers are in bloom now. It seems new ones open each day. This is a new little clematis that I put in last year and didn’t think it would make it but it is blooming like crazy.
The old fashioned roses are in bloom now and smell soooooooo good!
The bridal wreath that I planted on each side of the gate that goes into the barn just exploded with blooms this year!
Wild daisies in the raspberry patch.
My nemesis Mrs. Raccoon that has been living in my hayloft finally brought her babies out today. They are so cute and cuddly looking but I wouldn’t dare touch them! She has three and also a bob tail! I wonder what happened to her tail?
They had better enjoy the seeds and peanuts now because when this deck is torn off due to rot, there won’t be any seeds on the new one. I’d say they’ve got about a month before the crew tackles that job. :o) They are cute though aren’t they???!!!
