I want yesterday back! Darn it. I was hoping that they (the ads)were gone for good. O well.
Had a good day yesterday playing cribbage and dominos with Pat. Then last night I watched the Hallmark movie "Silver Bells" I cried and laughed. I like movies that make me do that.
I think I am still full from Thanksgiving. I still feel like a turkey, stuffed! We had a good time with just the 5 of us here. Everything was cooked at the same time, I did not burn anything and not one thing was cold except for what was supposed to be cold. Watched some football. Actually I watched 1 game Dallas-Denver. LOL DENVER WON!!! Beat my SonInLaw's Cowboys! LOL
Friday was a do nothing kind of day. Read some journals, played some games, did some laundry. Just generally goofed off. NOPE I DID NOT GO SHOPPING!
Friday night.... well Friday night was different. I went to bed as usual and fell asleep. 1:30 am I am awakened by Pat telling me that there was a bear out by the road! Well I am in a panic. Bears could hurt or kill our horses! I am going "A bear? A bear?" Finally he looked at me and said "not a bear , Belle!" O geez I thought, here we go again! For those who does not know, Belle is our spoiled paint that spent last winter in my front yard because she is a fence jumper!
Needless to say I was not happy with the fact she was out of the fence again. Out in the freezing cold we go to catch her and put her back up.
6:30 in the morning I am up and she is out once again. I get dressed and out I go again (this time I left Pat asleep seeing as how he had to go in to work that morning) I go down front and catch her. She did not want to come with me! She reached for me and lipped my hand that was leading her! I say lipped because she did not use her teeth!
I feed them and go back inside. Pat gets up and I tell him about her getting out again. He leaves for work. And then at 8:30 we do it again! I can see her down front out of the field! It is daylight out now so I can see so off into the field I go with my fence mending bucket. When I get out front Belle takes off running up front towards the barn. I am thinking on shoot. I drop my bucket and head up there running as fast as my fat feet will take me. She is headed to the back where once there she would be gone like a flash! I grab a bucket and start banging on the bottom of it calling her name. A miracle occurred and she stopped! Not only that she turned and came running back to me! Once again I put her in the field and fed them again! So back out front I go. Turns out she was walking over the fence. A wooden cedar post had broken into at the base and fell down taking out a good 15 feet of fence including an old gate. Well I was prepared. Got my wire out and started stringing wire, electric fence wire. Against all hope I was putting this wire up hoping at least to keep her in the field for the day. She comes down there to check it out and tossed her head and went back to the barn!
Here it is Monday and she is still in the field. Seethe deal is, she thinks that those 2 thin wires are electrified!
So now it is Monday and I am hurting. It is raining. I am not looking forward to the kind of weather!
Have a good day and please be careful.
