How to get nothing accomplished in one day.

Well first you get up and then get coffee.  You snuggle up in the recliner with your coffee and doze off till 8 am or so.  Then you get up and throw some clothes on with the best intentions of what you plan on doing that day.  (in my case, work on the barn)  Then you make 15 trips to the hardware store, along with one trip to the auto parts store, two trips to the daughter in laws house to get back the sawsall that was borrowed 6 months ago and never returned, a lunch stop, and of course a quick stop in the used car lot because they have a Jeep Wrangler that caught your eye.  Better go ahead and take it for a test drive, that way you can torment yourself on whether or not you should buy it if it you don't really need it, you just want it.
Once all of that is done you can finally come home and drive 3 screws into the siding, before calling it a day.
Yep, that is how you waste an entire day!

I did get a couple of cool pics though.

This is my neighbors Arabian Attan

And his brother Smoke (they aren't really brothers but they think they are)

Killian says "I don't care if it is 2 hours early for feeding time- I'm here and you should feed me!"

Sassy walked back and forth from the little barn 5 times trying to get me to follow her down to feed them

Hey Lady, the food is this way- are you coming?
Danny Says..."Um that's my dinner you are sitting on!"
We only have one more trip (hat we know of ) that we have to make to Home depot. Then we should really be able to get down to business on this barn tomorrow......tee hee!


  1. Sassy's mission to get through to you about the food totally cracks me up! Do you think sometimes they think we're just too dense to understand?

    1. I am sure that they think that. Poor Killian stood there for hours, whinnying at me. Sassy went to her pen, then back to me, then back to the shed door, then back to me...meanwhile Killian just stood there whinnying. He is all about conserving energy! Danny stands at the shed door and tries to undo the clip on the latch to get in on his own. He gets tired of waiting on me. He did figure out how to turn the handle on his own which is why we had to add the latch. Silly Silly Ponies!

  2. Sounds about like my weekend! I get unmotivated when it gets cold.

    Whenever I get feed or hay my horses all come up to "supervise" my unloading. I know they're just hoping that if they look pathetic enough I'll feed them! I do usually toss them some hay, anyway. Who is training who here?

    1. Yup, they are certainly doing their own share of "counter-training."
      The weather was decent compared fo the prior week, and we did get quite a bit done on Sunday, but it would have been better to get the work done on Saturday and then been able to rest a little on Sunday....HA! REST????
