Today, I cleaned up the pet’s room in the side building. It is a palace; couple ol’ couches and dog beds, nice and dry and offers accessibility to the yard. When in the back yard, Petal’s little house consisted of a big cardboard box stuff with a dog bed. She liked it but Daisy sometimes destroyed it and the whole thing was a bit junky so I decided to make her a little house. I used a few old shelves, some leftover flooring from my office renovation and a couple planks of the laminate in the house. She should be nice and comfortable in there in this cold weather!
I’ve had a weird few weeks. I was in the hospital for a few days with an infection – all better now. Previously, I had an adventure in the north 40. Bob and I were out doing firewood. I took down half a dozen trees, skidding them over to the firewood pile. On the second trip, a sinkhole mysteriously opened in the ground and Bob sank. Col stopped by and I enlisted his aide but to no avail; it took Josée and me a good hour to get Bob extricated. Last weekend, I worked on re-finishing some old benches. They were in rough shape but I stripped them down, repainted the iron legs and re-did the slats. I haven’t finished the yellow one yet but the blue one is up in the pet cemetery so I can sit in comfort as I remember Monty and Jack. Maybe one day I’ll join them there!
Last Thursday, I came home and heard a strange noise. It didn’t sound like Tegan. I looked outside and there was a pink pot-bellied pig, playing with Tegan and eating some grass!! A long story short, her name is Petal and she is about five months old. She belonged to someone who lives just down the road but for a variety of reasons is no longer able to care for her. Josée and I decided to adopt her so now we are the new owners of a pink pot-belly! She is really cute, very fun and has a different personality from Monty.
Finally, I had a great breakfast at Atlas and decided to take a close of my delicious breakfast! This weekend, more benches, welding some bucket hooks on the tractor, another bonfire and maybe a meal out. Oh, I have to remember to pay my taxes too!
