Also achieved were four loads of laundry hung on the line (oh, that smell...) and Dexter graduated from bottle to bucket in only one day (thank you, thank you, Janice!). I've had to reinforce his pen again, as he's strong and bouncy. Next weekend he gets banded. I am hoping that slows him down a bit. Jersey bulls are known to be lively, but he's going to have to toe the line if he stays. The sheep and I keep waiting for the grass to grow - they are happy with hay and their Christmas tree.
I also spent some time with my DS at their house near my folks - we moved some of her kitchen stuff in (OMG, I'm so excited) and it appears that she will be there (or at least with our folks) by mid-May. Words escape me, I am so happy about that. We (the three girls) have been scattered around and rarely get to spend quality time together. We poked around in the yard of the new place and discovered a nice bird bath, a outdoor fit pit thingy in reasonable shape, tons of flowering bulbs, and her sweet dog found the burdock. Poor boy. There's a lot of work to do inside and out, but the house is really lovely.
The dogs and I got three walks in (Pepper is coming along nicely - it's hard to hold him down) and today I took a big step and left Lovey out of her crate for the day. Gulp. I did make sure they all had a nice, big knuckle bone to keep them busy. I have been letting her stay out of her crate for short times and she seems to have overcome her anxiety at my absence. Fingers, toes and paws crossed I don't come home to a disaster.
I had to force myself to stop yesterday early afternoon, as I had a housewarming party to attend, but all in all, it was a very satisfying weekend. Good thing, too, as the rest of the week and through next weekend it calls for rain every day!
