Saturday



Cocoa discovers the parakeets.

*****


I worked an auction today.
Farm equipment.  
No photos.  No treasures in the trash.
Just several hundred farmers that smelled like...
well, farms. ha.  We sold tractors, trailers,
snow blades and manure spreaders. 
The only thing I brought home was my tired
 body, cold bones, and mud on my boots. ha.  
I put those self activating foot warmers in my boots
this morning...and they are still going strong.
Love those things. ...what a lifesaver.

What did you do today?
What did I miss in blog land? 
I'm about to tour the streets and say hello. :)

    1. I suppose it won't be long before Samantha teaches him how to jump up and spy from the top of the cage. ha.

  2. 4 of the 5 kiddos have the stomach flu, and hubby too. So, you know what I did. :)

    I think I would enjoy the farm auctions more if it was warm. :)

    1. Oh....been there/done that with lots of little kiddos. Not fun. Ugh! So sorry! Hope everyone is better soon.

      Yep, it would have been more fun if it was warm. Or if there were stray animals to bring home. hahaha. Last year, one of my coworkers did take a kitten home that was there.

  3. Surely know the smell of a farm
    Can do a nose harm
    And the parakeets may soon sound the alarm
    As he tries to sway them with his charm

    1. Well, he's charming all right!
      Might make the birdies take flight!
      Sam got her paw stuck in the bars this week
      and was letting out a whimper and a shriek.
      Had to do a little rescue
      after hearing her mews.

    2. Maybe she'll think twice
      And stick to bringing you mice
      Good thing you were there
      To rescue away at your lair

  4. Oh boy looks like trouble! :) do the cats ever try to reach into the cage?

    We helped my sister in law and her family move into their new house :)

    I prepared food for tomorrow and baked some amazing chocolate chip cookies, and yes I had a few with milk :)

    1. Oh yeah, they do try that. The bars are really too close together, but they love to try. ha.

      a new house...how wonderful and exciting for them. I would love that in a way...a clean new slat...starting over totally clean and organized! Lots of work, but fun!

      amazing cookies, huh....I'll be right over. ha.

    2. any chocolate mousse cake left? no, I didn't think so... lol....

  5. Okay I'll put the coffee on!:)

    Yes sometimes I think too a new house would be nice. But most of the time I'm okay with the one I've got. :) its not fancy bit its cozy.

    1. Oh, me too, really. And we aren't fancy at all. We need to replace a few things as soon as we get Taylor out of college and married. ...carpet, the kitchen floor, some bathroom fixtures.....I like updating the old, too and sometimes that's more fun that totally new everything. I'd miss the sentimental aspects of our house we have now.

      ok...coffee sounds wonderful....be right there. :)

    2. Ha no chocolate cake left but I do have a small vanilla bean cheesecake in the fridge and plenty of fresh fruit to go on top and I still have lemon curd. Lots of options for ruining a diet.lol

      Older houses have a certain charm that can't be acquired without having been lived in for years. And they have mature trees and landscaping :) and the updating and remodeling can be a satisfying experience.

    3. I totally agree with all of that! We lost our two big shade trees over the last couple of years! Now we have the littler ones...the crabapples, and redbuds that are younger. We need some big oaks! ha. What will the future grandkids climb? I need to get busy on that. lol....

      cheese cake, lemon curd and cookies. oh my. lol... we could make ourselves sick!

  11. I had a loafing kind of Saturday, always fun, and then went to a dinner party in the evening. I love it when someone else cooks!

    That's a very cute picture of Cocoa. There's no doubting what she has on her mind.
