GBN2 said she wanted to play on the "duht hill." Monday was "puhfect" for playing outside at the Lazy B. We walked down and fed the horses. Nacho the pony came up to eat and let us pet on him. He would have followed the feed bucket anywhere ( I don't know why his owners can't catch him). We found a great stick down by the pond, which had been chewed by beavers. GBN2 said it was going to be her cane, but it was way too tall for her to use as a cane. I showed her how to hold it as a walking stick - like Moses had. "You mean a staff?" she asked. "And he thew it down and it tunned into a snake!" She is so smart! She carried that stick, jumped, jabbed, threw, swiped, hit, rode, and all the things a kid can do with a stick. I jumped, ducked, tripped, got whacked, and repaid evil for evil. Then I suggested she take the stick home with her :) We played house in the horse trailer and sat on the flatbed trailer in the sunshine to drink our hot chocolate - the dogs loved that. For lunch we had chicken nuggets dipped in Ranch dressing and for dessert we ate a cutie (little orange). It made us extra cute and made GBN2 giggle when I told her so. She put an orange slice up on her lip and did her deep voice, "You must pay da went..." We walked to the mailbox while she told a story about a "Gwandmutha and a little gill who took a walk..." The dogs ran around us barking and carrying on while we walked. I said that Jack, the red heeler, was a bad little brother. "Ya mean they ahh bwuthas? And Zoe is the big sistuh?" This was a whole new thought, which delighted GBN2. When her mother called and said she was on her way to get GBN2, she said, "But I haven't done evweething yet!"
