Enjoying a peaceful evening (now) with Finn, working on my 1994 temperature afghan, playing a little solitaire and watched tonight’s new episode of Yellowstone! Can’t get much better than that!
Had a pissed off 16 year old earlier in the evening…told him he could stick around home for a change and told him he couldn’t take the ranger out driving on the gravel roads at dusk. Too stinkin’ dangerous and his buddies were down at a spillway not far from here and I said no because that’s too dangerous. Yes, let’s play where there’s runoff from the fields, so basically, let’s go play in some herbicide and pesticide…fun times! Boys!
Fair has been over a few days now, had much fun getting to go and visit…I tend to be a bit of a Chatty Kathy when I get out and about, spend about five hours walking and visiting on Saturday afternoon. Old Boy called as I was leaving to see if I’d been abducted. You know, as a stay-at-home mom it’s such a treat to get out and have a chance to socialize.
We’ve had such a scare as of late, an Iowa college gal has been missing for over two weeks and it’s brought information out into the light about just how many Iowans have come up missing recently. It’s really scared many in the area and has us keeping an even better eye on our kiddos. Our Girl was planning on coming home for our fair and wound up not coming being her boyfriend was in the field bringing in wheat and traveling I80 has gotten so scary that she decided to stay out west. As much as we missed her getting to come for a couple days, we agreed with her decision. It’s gotten her to finally locate a concealed carry class. I’ve had mine for years and never travel without my safety net….thankfully have never had to get it out.
Had a good laugh today, after being startled…
Tess was barking up a fit, thought it was another snake being the bark was the same as the day she stumbled upon one not far from where I was weeding in my garden.
A damn bird came flying out after I walked out onto the porch…
