Soggy Day

It has rained on/off all day long, since very early morning. Ive had to change my clothing 2X from getting soaked, I was not thrilled about that. There is just something unpleasant about wet jeans......

It is the kind of weather that is warm, sticky, humid, the air feels like it can be cut with a knife. The sun peeked out for a brief few minutes and created a sauna effect. Hubby called and he wont be home until around 7pm. He had to travel to S. KS. to do some work on an oil lease. He did offer to bring me home some 6pt. buds, yummmm. I was going to make icky Hamburger Helper tonite because I feel lazy and not really hungry. But, I forgot that last week hubby's brother W. gave us 3 bottles of red wine from Branson MO. He purchased it for his girlfriend (she is a neat girl, young barely 21- but neat!) and she does not care for it, so they brought it by knowing I would enjoy it. Since, I have a chilled bottle of 2004 Steinberg Red from the Stone Hill Winery Red wine collection...... I think I'll cook a couple of t-bones I picked up at the Meat Market on my way home from town after wee one's doctor appointment and serve it with some cold spaghetti salad that have fresh crunchy peppers on the side. Hubby doesnt drink wine, so more for me! I put another bottle in to chill incase I have company this evening.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Wet horse alert! Nice scaredoo the old guy was sporting this morning in the rain. Frizz head! Good thing I do not mind grooming, huh? It looks like I could use a little grooming myself. Major roots going on.....I had better call the salon, it takes about a week to get an appointment-yikes!

When toddler terror and I returned from town, we saw the old guy looking off to the North. Then we heard why. It seems M.D.'s burro has escaped again and was trampling around. We could hear him braying off in the blackjacks but never did see him. Toddler terror heard his odd sound and said "Whats that?" from the safety of the porch. Before I could answer him he said "No Cow" so at least he knew it wasnt a cow! That burro is ancient, but I think when the vet cut him, he left a nut up there or something....

Anyhow, lastnite a Bluejay was bothering them and then this morning, this is what I found. Evidence of a massacre.
