The Preschool Valentines Day Party was a success!
Wee One and his little girlfriend sat next to each other during ‘song’ time.
The main course was fruit and vegetable shishkabobs but the kids were also given McDonalds Hamburger Happy Meals.
Wee One with his Valentines Day ‘loot’.
Hubs suprised me with a rose.
I am nearly finished reading, Missing Pieces By Joy Fielding. It is full of suspense. I am enjoying it so much, that when I had a couple of hours free time before picking up Wee One from school, I buzzed into the library and checked out another Joy Fielding book, Whispers and Lies by Joy Fielding.
I also checked out a book by another favorite author, No Second Chance By Harlan Coben. I hope it is as good as the rest of Coben’s books.
Marvin is such a snoop. I am constantly shooing him off my scanner/printer/copier. It already works like crap and his 20 lb behind sitting on it cannot be helping it.
Last Wednesday, about 1pm I noticed I had not seen Miss Kitty underfoot. I called for her, I searched the entire house for her and could not find her. I called Bubba at school on his lunch break. He said he saw her when he took his morning shower. That was the last time I’d seen her too. I tore the house apart again, looking for her and calling her.
Evening rolled around, I did my outdoor barn chores, calling out for her before I came inside the house. I heard a faint ‘meow‘. It was Kitty, she was stuck underneath the front porch. I rescued her, she was cold, hungry, and thankful.
Why does Kitty always try to escape out the door when people are coming in/out? It really makes me mad! But I was happy to have Kitty back, I was getting worried.
If I did not know any better, I might think hubs has put Marvin up to spying on my online shopping. But, I have to have some new ‘vacation clothes’ for my up-coming sisters vacation the end of March.
Why, for the love of gawd, do clothing companies send out their ‘Spring Preview’ catalogs, then when you place an order, almost everything is on back order?!?!?!?! what the heck? it makes me cranky.
Freddie looks cross-eyed in this photo, he isnt, in real life. He is fat though. I’ve taken to calling him ‘fatty’. Freddie has porked out since he came to live at the Res.
When Wee One hears me call Freddy, Fatty—Wee One reminds me, “it is not nice to call names but“, he says, “Freddie is fat.”
Then I’ll say, “I’m fat too.”
Wee One always answers, “your just big mama, and your pretty too.”
Wee One is my #1 fan.
Yesterday, I brought Freddie out into the yard to administer his rabies vaccination and check his little hooves. When my farrier was here, I mentioned how Freddie seems to easily get ‘build up’ in his hooves. We decided on the ‘natural trim’ method for Freddie as well.
When I checked him a few days after his 1st trim, Freddie’s hooves were free of build up.
I tried to get a photo of Scooter foaming and flapping his tongue out of his mouth when it was his eating time. It was not easy and it started to drizzle.
Scooter is looking rather unkempt these days. His mane is a holyhell mess needing a good pulling. My hands ache just thinking about doing it. I am waiting for Spring before I take on that task.
After seeing the above photo, I gave Scooter an intense 20 minute grooming session and he looks much neater. Of course, as soon as I turned him loose, he ran to his sand hill and gave himself a roll. Yesterday morning, I went out to the barn to feed, Scooter greeted me with a forelock full of cockleburs. Gah!
Freddie never gets into the burs. Why does Scooter seek them out?
Tomorrow is MathCounts competition. Tonite Bubba has a 7th, 8th, and 9th grade dance. It goes on from 8pm until Midnight. Bubba thinks he is going to stay out until 11pm…..nope.
I’ll be there at 10 pm to gather him up and he does not want me coming inside after him. I already explained the rules. We have to be on the road at 7am tomorrow morning to the Competitions. 11 pm is too late to be out dancing. Heck, he is only 14 yo anyhow.
Monday is Wee one’s pre-op appointment. I had to reschedule my MD appointment for the next day. I still have awful head congestion and a cough. I am so ready to feel normal again.
