Quick Post-fair blog

Monday, September 01, 2014

Home from the fair and logged 31.5 mils of walking
from Friday afternoon until right now. I will slowly
log my nutrition as I get time so it may take awhile.
And if it doesn't happen, I can live with that too.
GD received 2 blue ribbons on her goats and a
blue ribbon for showmanship. Mostly blues and
reds on her chickens. She has a good start and
is looking for different chickens for next year.
The other GC who will be old enough to show
next year were excited that Grandma and Grandpa
will help them get started. Good thing that is a
few months down the road as we have plenty
to catch up on in the office this week.
Thanks for stopping by and I will post more in
the days to come. But, sorry, no pictures.

Packing up for the fair

Friday, August 29, 2014

I am in the process of loading the car to leave for the
State Fair. If there is WiFi on the fairgrounds, I may be
able to read and Spark. If not, I will thoroughly enjoy
being with friends and family. I am ready as I can be.
The beef stew turned out great and the Chicken Alfredo
is yummy too.
SPark on to a great Labor Day weekend. HUGS!

Francine didn't leave, she hid under the bed.

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Francine came out and smiled this quirky, devious
smile and I knew I was in trouble. First, she cracked
the whip in the office all day. Then, as soon as I left
the office, she decided we should fill all the feeders
in all the barns, give extra attention to the goats
and then, go back through the garden one more time.
I had asked the lady at the café if she wanted to pick
the veggies while I am gone. Well, we found over
1/2 of a 5 gallon pail of tomatoes and she took them
with her. We did find a few cucumbers and she took
them as well.
Now, Francine has me making a triple batch of beef
stew to take to the fair and Chicken Alfredo for DS's
GF who can't eat beef. I have picked up some Grands
biscuits to bake to go with the stew.
She nudged me to do one more load of laundry. I do
wish she would quietly leave LOL!
Other than that, I guess it was a pretty quiet day.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!

    Do me a favor, sweetie....when Francine starts out to look like maybe she's going to leave you alone for awhile, send her here!! (Although I think her sister may have been the one to force me out in the backyard to weed eat and mow a bit this afternoon!) Plenty here to do and I just need more kicks in the rump!
Have a super holiday weekend, my friend!! We're praying the rain and storms miss us Sunday for our big picnic at my DD's MIL's place. She makes a big to-do with family friends and neighbors in the cul-de-sac where she lives.

Francine is back

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Another one of those "What were you thinking?" days
and Francine showed up. Well, she thought we should
have a little fun after work. First, she wanted to fix the
fence so all the nannies and kids stayed put while I
am gone during the fair. Smart idea as it turns out.
There were 3 places where escape was possible and
that has been fixed. Of course, chores came next.
Fairly routine as usual so she kept pretty quiet. Next
she piped up that we should go through the garden
one more time, just in case we missed something
last night. Right again, I had a pail of tomatoes, a few
cucumbers and 6 zucchini that needed to be picked
tonight, just in case we get that inch of rain they have
been predicting.
Now, after dinner, Francine decided we just must
make spaghetti sauce so the tomatoes I picked earlier
this week are not tossed to the chickens. So the sauce
is simmering and will cool in the refrigerator later
so I can freeze it tomorrow.
Guess Francine is out of ideas for today but she is
pulling for me to make a double batch of beef stew
to take to the fair and has the beef thawing out in
the refrigerator.
So with her prompting, I have logged over 6.5 miles
and feel like it is time to put the day to bed, along with
myself. I will just wait until the dryer stops running
and find a soft spot to rest my head. This was a
winning Wednesday for sure. Thanks for stopping
by and rest easy. Francine has left the building LOL!
