Mmmm this is one long day. Up and out the door by 7:30 to get to the Cardiac doctor for my DIL...Good news she is to get a stress test and if it is good she will not have to go back to him for a year. Bad news he thinks she has emphysema , after years of heaving smoking there is a price to pay . We will know more after the stress test, but I expect a lung scan to be in the books too. For many reasons she has had a hard life and it has taken a toll on her health.
Then the feed store, loaded up the months feed. I wish I could feed me for a month on what it takes to feed critters for a month. Stop at Family Market for a few items and at long last HOME!
Took a lunch break then unloaded feed and put away. Had to get Skinner a new salt lick..both of the donkeys have been going for their salt licks lately..am wondering if there is something missing in their diets. They just know when to take in the extra salt I guess.
I made a big fail today. I ordered a bed for Molly..but it is too big for her kennel. I tried to squeeze it in there and it just did not work..so now will have to get her a bigger kennel. She reached from side to side on this one and cannot really stretch out fully. Another 3 or 4 inches would be all she needs. Time to go shopping on Chewy.com I guess. Then the new bed should work once she gets used to it. For now it will be placed in the living room for her to use and learn to love!
YES...the chickens said...YES...they got into their new house , crawled up in the nest box and said..there's your eggs for the day! They were all in there tucked in and more were on the large roost tonight. I think it was a good move!
OH speaking of moves..giant fail on my part too. I got some frosted sugar cookies, Christmas type for my DIL..but took 6 for me. I figured one a day..should last a week! Well they barely lasted for the day! I am a sugar-a- holic...sigh. That is why I do not keep stuff like that in my house..I know I cannot resist! But done is done..so time to move on . I can't say learn..I know better..I just cannot resist..so do not put temptation in my face!
I got a talking to from Skinner tonight..Gene fed for me this AM ..no carrots or apples cut up..so neither donkey nor rabbits got their treats this AM. As soon as Skinner realized I was home he let loose with a bray that told me he was not a happy donkey!! I got apples today and in the AM will spend some time grooming him, he loves that! I do believe my critters are a bit spoiled.
I also believe I am tired and ready to head to bed. Nite ya'al!!

    Ohhh sugar and I are BFF!!

    Awww NO Doubt Skinner was MUCH happier today. Says me, who has a kitty on my lap purring herself to sleep and I need to pee!! But she's so cute!! I have the little guy here overnight. Lol he's a year and a half old and loves HER toys!! Lol she was ok with that UNTIL he started to play with her toy that the ball around and around in a round tube. As soon as he walked away from it, Izzy RAN over to it again!!

    Skinner has you wrapped around his little tail - ha! You are well trained for sure.

    I'm a sugar a holic too. We've already had Christmas goodies dropped off at our office and I'm having a heck of a time staying out of them.

    The good thing about the cookies is that you didn't bring ALL of them home. You also ate them all the same day and now you will probably have some cravings but not nearly as long as you would crave if you had dragged it out for days. You're doing just fine, Katie!

    Skinner, like all of us just likes his treats...and a little TLC from MOMMA!

    Speaking of treats...have you ever tried slicing an apple into a bowl...drizzling just a little water over it and adding cinnamon before microving for about 2.5 minutes? Nice, naturally sweet, warm treat for a cold day...healthy too. You might even find that you like them as much as Skinner likes his apples!

    When I decide to eat sugar, I usually do the same exact thing. Like you I try not to keep in the house. When my DH is dieting too, I am successful at that. Otherwise he brings the sugar (usually chocolate but can be anything) in and I have to try to stay out of it. I've asked him to put it somewhere I won't find Ha.
