This barn is north-west of Mom and Dad’s place a few mile. It looks to be in pretty good shape; I’m not sure if it’s still used or not.
It was a hot weekend. The Rancher helped a neighbor harvest winter wheat and I did “skirt work.” Friday afternoon/evening I got the house cleaned. Saturday I got up early to bake buns and try a new. Sunday I got the books updated and the check book balanced. I worked on laundry and took a nap with my little dog.
With the Rancher out of the house it seems like I get a lot done. I didn’t push myself, but accomplished all I needed to and a little more.
When it’s hot out we let Roxie and Fritz in the entry. Last week I came home from work and all three dogs were in the entry together … alone and together. I opened the door and Molly was mad. MAD! She was barking and all the hair on her back was standing up. It took several minutes before she calmed down. I don’t know what the situation was, but it must have been dramatic. I do know when the cow dogs are in the entry, and Molly in the house, I hear a lot of moaning and groaning. Fritz makes all kinds of interesting noises. Then there is the occasional bark from Roxie. Sometimes, I wonder what she is dreaming.
Now for the really good news … RAIN! Yesterday evening/night we got 2.10″ of much needed rain. Nothing makes a Rancher smile like a good rain with no wind or ice!
