Its tea time !
Yesterday was quite the day, several times Jodie was heard muttering "I feel a blog coming on"...and she was right !! Tea is important in our house, tea can make the difference between a good day and a REALLY bad day. First thing in the morning a nice steaming cup of tea WITH milk brings an instant smile to my face and Greg earns his gold star for the day. I understand America has had issues with tea in her dim and distant past, I understand you dumped perfectly good tea into Boston Harbor (Harbour for us Brits !!) . I have no problem that the early Americans didn't want to pay taxes to little old England...but what did a boat load of tea do to you ? Anyway...Tom our new Wwoofer who incidently is doing really well and luckily for him (1) enjoys his food and (2) has a ready smile, had a cup of tea for his mid morning break down at the barn. All good so far...but then it all went bad, Tom had tea, black tea AND he left the tea bag in it ! Thats almost a hang draw and quarter offence to a true Brit !! Being the forgiving sort that I am, we noted the crime but forgave and Tom and Jodie continued their day on the ranch with giving the sheep a manicure. Jodie got the raw end of the deal....several times. It was Jodie that pushed the sheeps butt into the tilt table, The ewes dont particularly like having a manicure and pushing a sheeps butt is no easy matter... sheeps butt are always nasty and yesterday wasn't any different, poor Jodie. Trish and I took Charm, (beauty with Attitude) and sweet old Destiny out for a ride. Destiny is 25 and Charm a youthful 11 but the old girl returned to the barn with her tail high as a banner and ears pricked ( by old girl I do mean Destiny, not Trish , smile ). Charm returned to the barn like he had just run the Kentucky Derby. Greg invited Jodie and Tom to ride Lady, l ( as usual cautious, thank goodness) suggested that lady, was first ridden in the arena. Lady all 1 ton of her decided to try Jodie out and threw a few good Shire bucks into her performance. Luckily there were no trips to Urgent Care and our Woofers remain in good working order. Oh dear, run out of time and I was just getting going. Take care, M
