Check It Off

6 Nov

Last week, with my dad’s help, I managed to get another to-do item checked off my list.  Since I had to remove stuff from my bedroom for the windows to be replaced, I thought I should have help putting my bed back so I didn’t scratch up the newly finished floor.

Since he was here to help me put my bed back, we also took the time to hang the mirror over my dresser.

It only took eight months!   Rocky seems to enjoy being a mirror model.

I’m definitely happy with the results.  Although, this picture was before I cleaned the mirror (What was I thinking?).

Although, the mirror is straight and the floor is crooked.

Too Hot

27 May

We went from a horrible, wicked never-ending winter to about nine days of spring and then summer.  Now we seem to have hit horrible hot that is not planning on going away soon.  It looks like another week before we get back to close to normal.

That’s the kind of heat that makes you want to just stay inside in the air conditioning flopped out on the bed with your belly up.

This heat means the goats are miserable.  After they went out to pasture, I decided I better go check on them since it was 98*F ( 36.67*C).  They were in about they best place they could be.

Everyone is hot, but Wanda was really panting.  I worry about her and a couple of my old ones and the really pregnant ones.

Maggie is another that does not like the heat, but she was doing okay.

At least they have the water right there.  They can stay hydrated.

It was just a fun picnic under the cottonwood for Reva and her kids.

Myson thought he’d stay cooler if he went higher up in the tree to catch a breeze.

I’m not sure it worked because there is virtually no breeze.

I think some goats had a better idea by rubbing on the cool earth.

Maybe just taking a nap in the dirt will help.

Is it wrong to hope that school gets let out early since I’m on the second floor of a brick building without air conditioning?  I also want to keep an eye on my critters.  It’s not supposed to get this hot until I’m done teaching for the year.

The Project Continues

31 Mar

I am really making progress on the project of switching my library and bedroom.  I had furniture delivered this week.  I still need to replace the lamp that Rocky broke.  I’m thinking different curtains.

Rocky was quick to check everything out.  Luckily, he didn’t break anything this time.

He seems satisfied with it.

I love the way things are progressing!

I still have to clean my closet out from all the books stuffed in boxes–hopefully most will go up to the new library.  Sadly, I’m afraid that I’m going to find a lot of mouse damage.  That will get the laundry hamper and baskets out of the middle of the room.  Eventually, I’ll get Sky a nicer more comfortable bed.

Then I just need my dad to come help me hang the mirror.  It will be landscape orientation.

I don’t think I could have matched furniture to the mirror any better!
