Random Thursday (almost)

Like many others in our blog world, time just keeps slipping away on me lately. I've been busy, but with nothing of much note, so it's definitely time for a random posting.

Bubba, our blog spokes-kitty, has definitely recovered from his injury. It is truly amazing how quickly he has learned to accommodate 3 legs. He jumps down easily, jumps up to about 3 feet easily and actually runs pretty fast. Interesting item...his skin is actually striped (as he is) and where the incision was is growing in quite a bit darker; it looks like someone took a marker and drew on him. In tempting him with goodies, like this one (the flavor name cracks me up), I have created a monster. Bubba must have his "delights" every day!

There has been knitting, a bit here, a bit there. There are two single socks (from separate pairs), a partially finished purse/tote (needs handles and a lining) and a few others that we don't need to mention. The only project that I've actually finished lately is a project for Lene's Mor. There are pictures, but you'll just have to wait until the package gets there. Lene, a smallish box has been shipped, Priority Mail, a week ago, so she should get it shortly (depends on customs).

I'm still very happy with our garage project. It is done, and I'm getting much satisfaction from having it all tidied up, cleaned up and freshly painted. It is so much brighter and I know that I will appreciate that come winter. As many of you know, garages collect many items that probably should have gone in the trash right away. I guess some things just have to get some age on them before they move on!

Up until last week, it has rained very, very little around here. Remember Erma Bombeck's The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank? Not true. It burns out there first; it is, however, quite green over the leach field (the only green spot in our entire lawn). I was reminded recently of how to get it to rain...hang your laundry outside and leave your hubby in charge. Works every time (or at least the last couple of weeks)!

DD continues to show this year, games and Western. I think she looks really, really good and is gaining more confidence with every show.

Many others have shown off our boo-boos lately, like Scout. I think we're just trying to distract everyone from our lack of progress.

You would think we "grown-ups" would know better by now? Apparently not. Here is the number one reason why one should wear at least sneakers around the horses. The good news? It's all show...never did hurt to speak of.

Ouch! That looks awful! Good to hear that it feels better than it looks.
