Its Wednesday Already

The days are flying by this week. Sunday was our last day to go up the road and take care of the neighbors animals. We made sure they all had full feeders and waterers. Even if your gone on vacation for a week, when you get home you don't want to do anything but flop down when you get in the door. I didn't want them to have to do a thing. Monday Laury stopped over and I gave her the mail, and her metal pole back...you know, from their car washing brush. I told her the tale of why I had it.

I have managed to finish the peafowls new pen. Nope, I haven't taken any pictures yet. I am behind on taking pictures aren't I. I still need to take pictures of those two babies that have hatched this past week. Let me catch up on the ones I do have, then I can start on the new ones.

The weather here is supposed to really warm up and feel like Spring finally. We are supposed to have highs in the upper seventies to the lower 80s. I am looking forward to this so much. No more mud, no more cold, please!

I joined Facebook a few weeks ago, and have really been liking it. Its like reading blogs, but shorter, and everyone is on the same page, no page hopping! I really like it a lot. I still like to blog, but when I am short on time, Facebook is a good tool to use to visit folks and then get started on the day.

Alright, here are some pictures of the neighbors horses in the pasture. Shelby liked all this horse visiting so much she says when she grows up she wants a horse farm! I don't blame her, horses are beautiful creatures, and she seems to have a nack for them. :)

The last two pictures are of Biscuit and Trojan...the two not in the pasture. Shelby fed them and took care of these two, and gave them lots of love of course. :)

Have a nice Wednesday...I still need to post some pictures from my niece's bridal shower...I haven't forgotten. I will try and get that on here today or tomorrow. Always behind, never caught up. I am told that is okay out here in the country though. Out here thats how we live on a farm. Things are never done...and I am slowly beginning to accept that way of thinking, just plugging along at things, doing what I can before the sun goes down. ;)

It's a wonderful life, isn't it? The horses are beautiful, & I don't blame Shelby either. I would love to have a big ole farm with horses & cows.

Doing what you love is never work. I work but don't love it for sure. It was nice to see trees with leaves on them down your way. We don't have any yet, but soon...our weather is supposed to warm up also. The beginning of this week brought us cold days and lots of rain.
I'll be looking forward to seeing your new baby chicks.

I remember growing up wanting a horse farm. At one point I was considering being a jockey, I was small enough for it. (Hugs)Indigo

Hey Kelly! I have just overdosed on your journal! I have read days and days and days worth...it seems since the AOL ones went away, I have a hard time remembering to read yours and Dads journal. I miss them both!
Every time I see your chickens and hear of your farm life, it makes me miss visiting my grandparents as a child. Also your journal brings back pleasant Georgia memories from Cedartown...I had 3 uncles who lived there.
It was nice to catch up on your life. I will try to do it more often! Take care,
Vicki in Birmingham

Great looking herd of horses! I haven't stopped by here in a while. I like your background! Good and springy!
I always found a way to ride and NOT own horses. They are too expensive it seems!
