On My Head Be It

It was not raining when I headed down to the barn.  Grey, overcast, cold enough for a jacket, yes, but no rain.  I did not wear a hat.  The rain came when I let the first goat out and it continued to fall the entire time I was with the girls.  Goats do not like rain and chaos ensued as they fought to get under cover.  It rained as I hucked buckets of goat poo over the fence and as I slogged back up the hill.  "Go soak your head" took on new meaning for me.

I got a text message that Clay was running late.  Not wishing to waste that precious extra time, I quickly sat down and read the last forty pages of the book I'd started the day before, finishing just as he drove up.  It's my own darned fault I didn't get the room dusted.  Most of the day was spent in the kitchen making deviled eggs with an avocado mashed in (which I highly recommend!), and prepping for soba noodle salad with veggies and Orange Chicken.  Clay had brought up a new bench vise and installed it down in the shop for me.  I'm champing at the bit to get going on my secret project today.

It was a day to fill my head with new technology.  Clay said he'd brought up some movies, but I didn't see the expected DVDs.  He pulled out this little stick thingy.  I did know about thumb drives, but had no idea one could put movies, lots of movies, on those tiny bits.  In fact, I didn't know really what they are for.  With the help of a flashlight, we found a port on the television that I didn't know was there and Ta Da! movies!  Sometimes I feel I'm crawling out from the dark ages.  We walked out together to put the kids to bed and stood to appreciate the sunset.  Clay asked me if my phone could take panoramic photos.  "Well, yes, it can, but I've never used that feature."  This view is my first attempt, but probably won't be my last.

I packed up to-go containers for Clay and slipped in a couple of dozen eggs, as well as a jar of the mix I'd forgotten to give at Christmas.

Not just good, it was a most excellent day.
