A Busy Day!


This is where the damned coyotes are traipsing through, when there are fields all around us. I heard them under my window at about 3am this morning and by the time I got some shoes on and grabbed the gun, they were quiet and I wasn't sure if they were still out there. This is also the place in which our dogs keep rolling, which makes them stink, which also confirms it! Blasted coyotes!

I did some serious weed whacking today including the majority of the pasture, so that Steve and I can lay the weed killer and fertilizer down on the dewy pasture early tomorrow morning.

Because after tomorrow the girls may not see the pasture until spring, I allowed them out there for exactly two and a half hours, hence the halters. I wasn't going to chase them around the pasture to get them in. As it was I spent fifteen minutes playing halter tag in the paddock to get the halters on. They don't look too happy with me, do they?

I made a Tastefully Simple Beer Bread today, but only I used Ginger Ale instead of beer. It was good!

I thoroughly cleaned the house yesterday. I love a clean house. This is our media room up in the loft!

View from the stairs. My favorite room, especially when I've just cleaned and dusted it! I love this room!

Love the rooms in your house, they look so warm and inviting. It would be an understatement to say you had a busy day, whew, bet you'll sleep good tonight-coyotes or not.

The two girls look pretty disgusted with the whole halter deal! lol! I don't put halters on often and I get that same look from my guys!

Your house looks so nice. I love your media room. What's the recipe for the Beer Bread? Or should I say the Ginger Ale Bread?! It looks yummy!

Thanks, Arlene, I've got a lot of work to do on this house yet. The kitchen needs an overhaul and our bedroom is not finished, so we have a lot to do, but what is done I love!


Midlife Mom, Yeah, I very rarely halter, but thwy have pistols lately with the whole halter thing. LOL. Thanks, I love the loft area too. The Beer bread, I'm afraid I'm a cheater and I use a box and water ever can of beer or soda is around. It comes from a company called Simply Tasteful. You can order over the internet I think. I alway get mine from a distributor at the fair, same with my kirby bags....LOL

Are you going to share your bread recipe? I think that i would use ginger ale, as well. People look at me funny when i buy one bottle of beer to make beer butt chicken - dont need another excuse for the looks.

What a cozy room - it's beautiful - Coyotes. Ugh. I hate that sound of them screaming in the night. We lost a kitty to them when we lived in California, so my cats stay inside all the time now. I didn't expect coyotes on the East Coast, but we've got lots of them.
