Spring Weekends Pass Quickly!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARosie will have been here one week by tomorrow night. I already can’t imagine the Meadow without her! She has great character – and lots of spunk. She and Darby seem to have hit it off alright. It has been great this weekend to get out there to spend time with the trio. Both Darby and Rosie are happy to follow us anywhere and love to be petted.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARosie has attracted a lot of attention. Last night while we were out in the front yard two girls drove by once … twice … and then on the third sweep got up the nerve to stop their car and asked if they could come into the yard to meet her. They were on their way to Cronks as they are working for Oconto this summer. Cronks have a riding ranch down the road called ‘The Eastern Cowboy’. They also have two miniature donkeys and a miniature horse. I’m thinking the girls would have had LOTS of pictures to take home this week when they finished work at the camp today!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEde did some more sawing up of downed trees today. I started to work at moving the ‘garbage dump’ that the previous owners of the property we bought next door left on the hill. The Bully has been great to help me get things like that done! We also met up with the Rec Committee. They were unloading equipment for a pitching workshop they’d held this weekend at the school. We’ve given them use of the ‘little house’ next door as a storage spot for the ball diamond and events that they run all year. They have put together a group of workers to put a new roof on the house and to help to haul away the old shed and the garbage behind the house. It’s going to be nice to have things cleared away.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd now … I can smell a steak dinner hitting the table. Another weekend has whizzed by! Hope you had some time to enjoy a little sunshine and fresh air this weekend. The leaves have opened and you can even hear them slapping in the wind. It’s coming! 😉
