This is one of the two miniature horses that my mom and Jim (my cousin who is her roommie) have up on the lake! They look so shaggy because they are losing their heavy winter coats, now that spring is supposed to be here! It is so funny to watch them! Zoe had me laughing so hard! She backed up to a tree and stood there just scratching her butt ! My mom took some big mats of fur out from under her mane too! In the photo she is looking out of the fence because she knew my mom was coming out of the barn with an armful of hay for their dinner! It is surprising how incredibly smart they are! I just LOVE them both! (:
This is going to be another crazy week! On Thursday evening Andy, Elaine, Grace, and David are headed out of town for a figure skating competition! I will be staying here until Sunday night with James and Gary! I hope it will all go well ! I don't want to get sick again! Kay will stay here with me when she isn't working! I haven't decided what I am going to do with Smoochie! I am not sure that she can just be left alone! Kay may have to go home for a few hours here and there!
Last night we had a wicked powerful thunder storm !!! I saw lightening hit the edge of the complex and simultaneously the thunder cracked so loud that it shook the buildings! It was one of the craziest storms I have ever been in! It carried on for quite awhile! I didn't get to sleep until nearly 4am! I am paying for it today! Anyways, back to the storm, I woke up this morning to find that we had NO water! Lightening had also hit our well ! The complex has 3 big industrial sized wells, each with a huge pump! I thought we were doomed to be waterless for some time, but when I ran back home later in the morning, the water was back on! What a relief !!! The lightening must not have hit the pump/pumps or they could never have had it replaced and working that quickly! I am guessing it was wiring or a pressure switch! When I got to Andy's to babysit, he showed me that the house across the street from him had been hit too! Their weather vane, which is usually straight up, is bent over to the side and is just black! I hope it is quiet tonight because I really need to get some sleep!
I hope you are having a great week! ( :
