In order to divert my angst, I started cleaning out the barn. I rehomed a partial roll of welded wire fencing, three heated water buckets, a length of ridiculously short electranet fencing, my Victorio saucer, my mini greenhouse, and, lastly, an extra phone. I also filled the Goodwill container - which will be going this weekend. I am ON FIRE, people!
I had a houseguest this weekend, who I dragged to the feed store, to the grocery store and through all of my errands. I did try to do some tourist-y things, but I am afraid I am too distracted to be a hostess with the mostest. He left a day early, pleading homesickness, but I am still wondering if it was the sight of the manure splattered on my lower legs every morning (the cows at the dairy barn have been acting out....) or could it have been the crunchy towels? He was a very good sport and took me out to dinner (not to mention supplying me with GF sauerkraut balls and chocolate covered espresso beans!) I owe him...

Left with unexpected time on my hands, I made cottage cheese (ala Mama Pea), caught up on my ironing, gave Scrappy a bath, and enjoyed the onset of a cold front - which brought relief from the oppressive humidity and heat we've been having over the last many days. We also got a half-inch of rain, woohoo!
