"The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fire."

Today I dealt with all of that. My horses would not stay away from the barn today. Everytime I went to get Spirit out or put her up I would have to chase them away.
I got the hose out and filled up the water barrel of course Precious had to get a drink. She will drink all her water out of a straw if she could. Afyter doing the barrelI hosed her down. She really enjoyed having the cold water run on her neck. I imagined it cooled her off. I know it always cools me off when I do that to myself.
Yesterday was a pretty good day. Candy took us out to dinner for Father'sDay and then we went toLowes. She was not sure what tool set to get Pat so she had him pick it out. Hepicked the cheapones and she upgraded them LOL. It tickled him. He really likes tools. I bought a mandellan(spelling?) plant. Around here I will have to take it inside for the winter after it dies down. It will not tolerate our cold, not that we get really cold.
I made a fattening dinner Saturday. I made lasagna. I ate smart though, I only ate one piece of it. I have finally managed to make only 1 pan of it. Ithas taken years for me to cut the recipe down from two 9x13 inch pans down to one foil lasgana pan. LOL. Half of that pan is now in the freezer to reheat on a later date.
The garden is mostly saved I think. Some of the corn did not do well. Actually I still do not know if I will get a corn crop. Last year I planted and got lots of stalks but no ears.... My beans are climbing high. It looks as if I will get a good crop of green beans. The tomatoes cannot decide if they will get bigger or just stay small and give me tomatoes. Looks like my ambition of selling some will not come to fruit this year. I will try again next year.
Ok time to eat and get ready for Brook's class. See yall later.
