… it’s been a while since I posted. Joe has been in and out (and in and out!) of the ER this week and not much is getting done that doesn’t have to. He’s (mostly) fine now and things are slowly getting back to normal. I’ll be back when I can…

By necessity we see a lot of doctors… specialists connected to all of M’s issues, the kid’s pediatrician for everyday stuff, and lately R’s needed to be seen more frequently because of the back pain she’s continued to have since the car accident we had last December. This past week we had two major appointments… R [...]
It was Small But Fearless Defender (SBFD, aka Cody) versus Stinky this morning… SBFD was both victorious and came away from the battle unscathed. SBFD was lucky, it could easily have gone the other way… Early this morning Cody SBFD was sitting up on the bed looking out the window that overlooks the back pasture. This is his habit [...]
Sadly, we had to say good-bye to Brighty today… he moved to a different home. He is a sweet and amazing little donkey, but had been alone… completely…. for years before we got him. As a result of being alone for so long, he struggled to get along with Murphy and Tucker and as the [...]
The weather has been so strange the past week or so… We had six inches of heavy snow on the ground before last week’s snow was over, and it’s been cold and dreary ever since. The back pasture should start greening up now… finally… it’s been bone dry all spring. The sun is finally out, [...]

… in projects right now. The basement finishing project is getting there… slowly… but at least we’re making progress. Hopefully within a few weeks it will be completely finished and I’ll be at the “it was hard and I don’t want to do it again any time soon… but it was worth it” stage that seems to [...]
… and it was a beautiful day to be outside… … and even get together with a friend for an impromptu knitting (and grazing) circle.
In which I take even more pictures of my animals… (as if you haven’t already seen enough!) Because unlike my children… they will, without complaint, let me. (Part 1 of “reading the manual” is here… it’s taken me awhile to get to part 2!) Murphy 15 year old (16 next month!) Appendix gelding, (mostly) undisputed king [...]
Prom 2011 Saturday night was prom night for M and his girlfriend (like our youngest, her name also starts with R, so to avoid confusion, I’m just going to call her “M’s girl”), it was her school’s junior/senior prom and they went with a group of kids including M’s girl’s brother and his date, and [...]
