As promised! Photos!

A not-so-great photo, but you can see Cian does really exist.  I went out with my digital SLR, but unfortunately, the battery was dead.  These were all taken with my point and shoot camera.  Click on any image for a larger size. Happy Cian (after being worked). Cian is now a header on this Journal. […]

I need to cry more …

Crying is a great release.  I love my friend’s Shaping Chaos Blog.  I’m glad she’s keeping it up.  Correct me if I’m wrong, H., but I believe Shaping Chaos was started as means for the two of us to keep up on training notes.  I almost ruined my friendship with H. because of my stupidity […]

Someone needs to clean this house!

Damn it’s a mess! I spent the morning doing errands: post office, bank, gas station, grocery store and I brought Kitty to her new home.  She went to a petting zoo to do the joint job of guarding the animals at night and schmoozing with the visitors.  It was a perfect fit for her and […]

Things got better.

I talked to my friend from Canada for about a half hour.  We are both going to try Skype which will enable us to talk for free.  Unfortunately we’ll both have to be tied to our computers, but for free, we’ll manage.  Then my homeopath called.  She agreed with my remedy selection.  We talked about […]

Depressing news

I should not watch television.  Between the political ads and the bad news about the economy, it’s incredibly depressing.  I am depressed.  Who wouldn’t be? This country, really the world, is going down the tubes.  I don’t know if it can be fixed. I haven’t heard a thing from the lawyers I used to work […]

Trying to adapt

I wish I could kick back and enjoy this unplanned time off.  Here it is 12 Noon and I haven’t done a whole lot, well, I suppose I have … I milked Rain and took care of my equipment and the milk, then took Rain and Esmeralda for their morning walk, moved the sheep and […]

Dating is for the birds!

E-w-w-w-w-w! Did not go well.  This is the first “date” I’ve been on in ten years and quite frankly, I can wait another ten years to go on another one.  Oh well, it got me out.  I had to go to Lowes to buy grain moth traps to make sure I don’t end up with […]
