worked an extra day at the Old Cowboy's. He has people coming from Colorado tomorrow. I recleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and spiffed up the bathroom. Grocery shopped. ok.
on the way home i stopped at the Vet to pick up Tay's papers and her Tag. It's formal now. She is in my name. They changed her breed from her puppy papers of Australian Shepard X to Catahoula X. Felt like a marriage license. Partners. Me, Tay.
she is always so glad when i get back home. I use this denim string thing as a belt on this particular pair of levis and for whatever reason, she likes it a lot. Likes to mouth it. The little white speck under her left eye is a bread crumb. She was standing directly under me while i cut bread into the cubes for the Turkey stuffing. I am going to make an entire Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. My friend who i never see when she is involved with her current Love Interest emailed a couple days ago. This current Love Interest wants to celebrate Thanksgiving at the Magdalena Volunteer Fire Department dinner. For whatever reason, she does not. and so she emailed me. What was i doing for Thanksgiving? I responded that i was planning to have a very plain day of getting things done. I said i was looking very much forward to that. Another email. Could i have her for a mid day meal? I thought. Wha. NO!, but then i felt selfish and said well, ok. I thought of making lasagna and then thought of making Ruben Sandwiches. and somewhere along the line she emailed again and apologized for inviting herself and said it was ok if we didn't. And i emailed back...yes. good then. good. thank you. But then in the morning, i guess that was yesterday, i thought why Not? What's the big deal? So i emailed back, OK. if i can find a 10 lb turkey then Ok. I did. and so...this is how Tay has a bread crumb under her eye. Turkey is defrosting in a pan in the bathtub. Yet one more Thanksgiving. Which i Love because of the stuffing and the gravey.
inbetween, i riffled through baskets and this cloth jumped. It's a Deb Lacativa cotton. I washed it in my hands in the bathroom sink and took
it out to dry
Goats were quiet, and suddenly listening to something across the road
this is Mercy. She often goes around with a single piece of something dangling....?
Onday. Who i come to love more and more as time goes. she is kind of representative of All of Them. Onday. I look at her as she looks back at me and i am Flooded with feeling.
so we are back to this. Will post it next time i go into town at the grocery store. Monday i guess.
the this was last. For Days now, there has been a great LEAK of some kind here. I have gone in and out with the flashlight to look under the house while i have left water running inside. Could see NO leaking. So i decided it must be from that great no freeze set up for the Goat hose, and well, so what, something is not working right because there is a small pond there and the dirt maybe 10ft to the right left and ahead is muddy wet. OK. hmmm. The doves love it. They come and sit for a while on the old chairs then jump down and drink long and well. But...still, it's not right. You can see where that white mark is at 6 inches. That's where it had gotten to. But today, suddenly, it's seeped in. The puddle is gone. Absorbed into the ground. I have NO IDEA what to think about this. And it is Amazing to me. Just DONE WITH in this moment. eeeeeee.
