Yesterday was a full and slow day. First things first. Baby had to have her milk. She gets a half gallon twice a day. I also gave her some grain. As of right now she has not touched the grain. She is eating some hay. She will not approach the bucket if I am in the stall or looking at her. When I took her picture she could not see me because of the darkness outside.
The kids came over for dinner. I had country style steak with gravy, mashed potatoes, lima beans, corn on cob and homemade fresh pineapple upside down cake. I started cooking and stuff just started being made. I had no plans to bake a cake but I just went with the flow of what my heart was doing.
Pat and I played some pool yesterday. He beat me. He is a really good player. He made a comment that he wished he could shoot like that with everyone. He does have a bit of low self esteem. I try to boost him up rather than pull him down. He has been pulled down enough. After years of listening to members of his family and at his ex job...... I guess in order to boost their own esteem up they have to tear down other people.
I was moving real slow yesterday. I woke up and found I was down in my back. This is something that happens to me at least once a year for as many years as I can remember. I can remember as a kid waking up to a backache. I have a bit of a curved spine and sometimes it just hurts. Rest does not help it either. It just takes time. I do have to be careful because it makes me weak and when I am weak I can hurt it bad. I may mot be able to do my last class of self defense. It is tomorrow. Maybe I will be okay by then. Yep it stills hurts today. It may be a strain from pulling on the calf. LOL it is easier to work around the house than it is to sit here in a chair and type. Sitting hurts to get up.
Made pancakes for beakfast this morning. Only 1 for me. They ate a plateful though! Oh yea and some little smokies too. Brook is home from school today. She is coughing her little head off. No fever but she is spitting and sneezing blobs of think yellow mucus. I called and she goes to doctor this afternoon. Not taking a chance! No taekwondo for her tonight.
It is cold! Our temp got to 12 last night. Everything froze. I had to get to breaking ice on the water this morning. I will have to go out and do it again soon.. It has warmed up to 30 now at noon so maybe it will stay drinkable. until nightfall.
Time for me to unload dryer and reload dryer and washer. Got to keep water running so it won't freeze. May as well make use of the water instead of just letting it drain away.
