For a short week

it sure felt like a long one.

Felt good to sleep in a bit this morning.

We've had some stormy weather this week.

The news guy said last night that the month of May brought over 10 inches of rain and of course that18.5 inches of snow.
We are saturated with the wet. 
A lot of farmers haven't gotten their crops in because it is just too wet 
and those farmers that did get their corn in before all the rain came are not expecting it to grow with all the water standing in the fields. 

It's surely been too wet for me to mow as well. 
It's a jungle out there!
Dandelions as far as the eye can see.

My only saving grace has been the portable mowers AKA the horses.

Jennifer taking a little nap

Scotch and Casper asleep on their feet.

Jennifer waking up enough to have a nibble.

It's been too cool to get the pool up and running so it's just plain water that Gypsy decided to have a drink of instead of going back to the barn for water. 

Funny how she lapped at the water like a dog would. 

Colton is slowly recovering. 
He had a bad day Thursday - he got behind on the pain meds.
Bet he doesn't do that again.

Cadens game on Wednesday was cancelled due to storms in the area, but they played on Thursday in a nearby town.
Drove through a huge storm on the way there so I was thinking that game might be cancelled too, but it wasn't. It was windy and raining on and off throughout the game though.

Caden got on base twice, but never got to home.
He pitched two innings!
Man was I nervous!
My stomach would just clench every time he threw the ball.
He struck a total of four boys out.
Pretty good for the first time pitching this year. 
He has good aim, but needs to work on putting more speed into it.

They lost 5 to 3.

The boys were bummed, but it was a good experience. 
They know the areas they need more work in and when they play this team in a few weeks they'll be stoked to win.

One more week of school left for the kids. 

I'm planting my garden today.
Really scaling it down from last year. 
Loved the big garden, but I want more time to do other things than just WEEDING every free moment.

Also, at the Memorial day parade our chiropractors family was sitting next to us and I was visiting with the wife. We were talking horses and I mentioned that I had finally talked Chyann into selling Casper.
We talked about Casper and what all he could do and she said her brother in-law might be interested.

Yesterday when Chyann had her appt the wife asked if they all could come over early this next week to look at Casper.

So, guess we'll see what happens there. 
Can't imagine not having him, but he needs to be ridden/worked.

Happy June to you folks :)

Side note:
My dishwasher washes the dishes now, but the damn thing does not dry them!
When the cycle is over they are clean and HOT and are covered with water spots.
So much that I have to hand dry them to put them away because if I crack the dishwasher door to let them dry they end up covered in ugly dry water spots.
I'll be calling Sears AGAIN today.

Time to tell Sears you want a new dishwasher or your money back! Geez!!

Hope your son continues to recover, surgery sucks!!!

And it must feel really sad to think about parting with a fuzzy member of the family.

Oh goodness I'd be so annoyed with that dishwasher. It comes to a point, they should just replace it, it'd be cheaper!

I agree, last week did seem long, even just sitting around the house like I did. I left the house on Monday and Friday, otherwise I was here all day every day. oy!

You will definitely appreciate that dishwasher when it's back in working order, that's for sure.

Lap, lap - mmmm, people water... LOL!
