We had a water leak out near the barn this past weekend. Sunday was a beautiful day to dig in the mud (Oklahoma clay - much like glue). Toby did the digging, while I corralled the GGs. Just before dark, my son and husband thought they had the leak fixed. They covered it back up with dirt only to have the pipes come apart with water pressure. Toby had to take yesterday morning off to re-fix the leak, which was not quite as warm and sunny as Sunday. We were without running water over night. Jesse abandoned us and spent the night with friends. Toby said he was sore from all the digging. I said I was sore from chasing GGs. Mine is always worse.
My six-toed cat, Count Rugen, is gone. Those dang coyotes are probably the culprits. There is hope that the cat is off catting around, but it is doubtful. Jesse and I are sad about the loss. My cow-dog is sick. I’m thinking it could be serious. This morning I will haul her to the vet. What is going on with my animals? When it rains, it pours…cats and dogs.
Jesse posted a forth installment of San Antonio photos. They may be the best yet. I wonder if she will post photos from Enchanted Rock State Park. Maybe if we all beg…
I have been working on a watercolor, but it is not great – certainly not blog-worthy. So far, I am not doing well on painting more. Nor am I exercising more and eating less, or using the computer less. So much for resolutions!
