Yesterdays break out by Macho and Lamb Chop caused my blood pressure to elevate at an alarming rate…my heart rate was off the clock and my temper, rarely seen, was rising ! Lamb Chop and Macho munched their way through the barn yard without causing too much of a disaster but typically, the object of their attention that caused the most culinary interest was the most expensive tree in the yard. My $40 tree was a gift, I have lovingly watered and cared for that tree, I have watched it flourish and, from my kitchen window, I watched it being pruned relentlessly by the two escapees !!
It doesn’t take too much to please me, and yesterday after taking two trays of sticky pecan brownies out of the oven, I went back down to the barn to find Ursula hard at work with a paint brush, smartening up the other barn kitchen door and wearing a smile bigger than herself !
During the course of the afternoon, I was delighted to find that Greg and Quatre had constructed a gate system that will make life considerably less difficult for me, thank you guys !
I had an apology that I had never expected to have to make and it all goes back to the chicken house. The apology was to Ursula who is a German national and the reason for the apology, “Adolf” and “Adolfs brother Adolf” two identical roosters who were named after their goosestep march was noticed. Fortunately Ursula is not over sensitive and I caused no upset. It made me realize that I should possibly consider such matters when our critters are named!
I think the Otter Pop, ice pop people should give us a commission…during this hot spell I think we are possibly breaking some Otter Pop record..if there is one!
Time to go, the cuckoo clock has cuckooed and the roosters are crowing. Greg is on the move and Bran is poised.
Take care, keep safe and cool. M
