We seem to be stuck in a streak of beautiful weather.
Perhaps a beautiful summer is a consolation prize for enduring
all of the weirdness that is 2020!
Blue sky always makes flowers look even more beautiful,
I spent a good portion of yesterday off the farm.
I had my first appointment in the salon and my hair once again
looks like it belongs on a human being.
My hairdresser is a single operator with her own shop,
so I felt that that was a safe undertaking... just me and her.
I also visited the grocery store while I was in the area.
All of this is an hour away from where we live,
so by the time I had finished my errands, half of the day was behind me.
By the time I returned home it was afternoon chore time,
so I headed out with newly purchased graham crackers in hand
and visited all of my friends.
The horses were happy to let me know that they LOVE grahams!
Once everyone had treats and were fed and watered,
the dogs and I headed into the pasture to pick up manure.
Ordinarily, as soon as MaryAnn spies me, she heads over to enthusiastically say hello.
For some reason, yesterday, she was too busy grazing to
visit with me.
"So, what do you say, we go for a swim, Chester?"
All one need do is toss a stick into the pond,
and Chester dives in.
Over and over he willingly jumps in to retrieve sticks.
I never would have guessed he'd turn out to be such a water dog.
But, he just loves to swim!
I've had many questions regarding our missing runner duck.
I have not seen her in two weeks, now.
Oddly, the rest of her family hang out all day long in
an area of our farm that borders a neighbor.
There is a lot of dense underbrush in his yard,
which makes me wonder if she is in there somewhere nesting.
Time will tell.
It just seems like the rest of her family are there waiting...
day after day...
