Times sure flies when you are having fun! It has been a while since I updated. I am behind in my reading too.
Brook is doing well in school. She is making 100s on everything. PE has been a bit slow as she cannot play contact sports. They are playing basketball and kickball right now. She started testing this week for the gifted program. Not sure of when the results will be back from that. I think she may still have a test to take. She needs to work on her handwriting. All summer with no practice has really messed it up!
Pat is working too hard as usual. I worry about him at work in this heat. He has to be reminded to dring water! He has packed on a few extra pounds and that hurts. Being exposed to his mother's smoking is not helping with him not smoking. He quit smoking over a year ago after over 35 years of smoking. It makes it so hard for him to breath, he has asthma. I pray that he does not start up again.
Belle is doing great out in the field with the other 2 horses. She has a few bite marks and kick marks but nothing bad. Precious has lost some weight with just being confined to front field. She needed to lose. It has been too hot to ride them so all they do is eat. Crystal has a problem right now. Apparently she has stepped on a stobe or something. She has a hurt front foot. We are having to clean it out every day. Not a lot to do for it. We have been soaking her foot in an iodine bath for 15-20 minutes. It does not appear to have anything in it. If there is anything in there, it will have to work it's way thru the hoof. Depending on where it is, it could be a year before we ride her again. In the meantime, no riding her. With luck it will heal soon. We may have a buyer for Belle. IF they buy her she will be moving to Texas! So all my Texas friends will have to look out for her.
Candiac is doing well in school. Makes straight A's. Runs in the family you know! LOL She is working at Ruby Tuesday. Doing well there. I would hate to have her life right now. She is working days and nights, going to school nights and has a social life. NEWS FLASH.................... She has announced that she is getting married on Oct. 29th OF THIS YEAR! So guess who has a wedding to plan in a very short time. She is engaged to a man that is nice to her, revers family, never married. His name is Juan Carlos T. Everyone calls him Johnny. He is an American citizen, not someone looking for a green card. He was born in Guatamala and came here as a baby when his father was assassinated. He has lived in Dallas, Texas his entire life. He moved here because his older sister needed his help. She has health concerns.
Now Hazel is a big thing in my life right now. That will be an entry by itself.
My garden has been generous with squash! Now if only the rest of it would hurry up.
I am alone today. I hope it stays that way. The quiet sounds so good.
