Every day, there's progress around the Lovestead. Daffodils are opening. Bumble bees have returned, and, yes, so have the flies.
Hope those swallows hurry up and launch an offensive on the flies. In the meantime, we'll just have to deal with them on the sunny side of the house.
The second day of no rain meant wearing Crocs in Sandpoint and flipflops in Seattle. For the record, Annie posted a photo of her first day on the job with flipflops.
I wore my paintin' Crocs yesterday and added a little more art to the summer footgear by painting a second of barnyard fence along the driveway.
I did not add paint to Liam's coat, but he found a way. Tis good he's black and white, so folks probably won't notice 'cept the white is in a funny place.
This morning I can walk out the garage door and admire my newly painted fence.
There's lots more to do, and it will get done when time allows. Last year because of our trip to Ireland, my annual painting schedule was delayed until fall.
That turned out to be pretty much wasted effort and wasted paint, as the snow did a real number on all the board fences.
Today all three horses may spend the day in the barnyard. It's drying out. Still lots of mud, but I think it's safe for CB to get acquainted with Lily cuz he can now outrun her if he needs to.
I'll also probably put away some of the yard tools along the garage door. That's due to speculation that we might not need some of them again for a few months.
For now, we're happily enjoying our return to Heaven in North Idaho. It's a good thing, and, considering the weather report, bound to get better day by day.
Happy Friday. Also, do note the caption on the photos at the bottom. Longtime locals will, no doubt, find at least one of them very interesting and definitely a trip back into yesteryear.
|Here's a "Guess who?" for local folks of my vintage.|
This was sent to me overnight by a family member of one of the two individuals above. I know the people but not the horse.
A hint to some of the answers can be seen in the photo inscription below.
