I know when you don’t hear from me you begin to wonder what’s up. There is just too much to do around here and I’m not getting any younger. This morning when I got to the barn, the kittens had found a tiny hole they could squeeze through so that meant securing the next adjoining pen for them. It had to be cleaned, the chicken roost and feeders moved out and the rest of the fencing had to be double fenced so the kittens could not get out. I’m hoping to get Mama to the vet next week to be spayed. And I was almost out of kitty litter so that meant a shopping trip tonight. All the kitties are using the litter box – I clean it about 4-6 times a day. No, Mama is no friendlier yet.
It’s a good thing I was in the barn because I heard a disturbance on the landing of the haymow and I had to rescue Emma from going through the hole in the railing. She has seizures sometimes and when she had one up on the landing, she couldn’t walk, she foamed at the mouth and I don’t think she could see. I held her as tightly as I could so she didn’t fall down the steps. When she regained her balance I put her in the haymow to recover. Poor Emma – this has happened to her many times through the years – before she ever came to live here.
I went to the garden only to find something has eaten most of my pumpkin vines that were just getting started. Ugh! I hate gardening sometimes.
We have had electricians here several days this week putting in a new breaker box in the barn and burying the overhead lines. They turned off the power without warning me and it burned up my router. Had to have someone come to figure that out. We also have carpenters here siding Rick’s shop and laying rocks. Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep a lively puppy out of the way of workers in the yard? Here’s a picture of their progress.
The weekend is ahead – cleaning house tomorrow and finish putting on the screens and then Reed is coming to help me start cleaning the barn. It never ends. And I am tired and my back hurts.
