Kellan and Wil stopped by for milk and brought a supply of fresh vegetables and salad greens. How's that for perfect timing? I'm always so proud to introduce my Kids to my friends, and vice versa.
It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows us that we broke out the cards in the afternoon, and there went the rest of the day. Taking on all comers, I emerged as Champion of the Day! (It's a ritual we've had for years that humbles the losers and exalts the winner. It's good to be queen!)
During the barn chores in the morning, a few squirrels and mice did make brief appearances, but they tend to be shy around strangers. Pete went with me to put the girls to bed. I heard rustling in the hanging feed bucket and told Pete to "come see." Taking the lid off the bucket, I'm not kidding when I say that a minimum of fifteen mice raced in circles and sprang out like popcorn, running for their hidey-holes. Pete cracked up laughing at his introduction to the Flying Wallendas. Welcome to farm life!
I put on a movie for the guys...and went to bed.
It was a good day.
