First Mom learned to fire Granny's kiln. It took us alot of time to get it up to temp but we did and I can't wait to see all the western stuff we put in there. I also got my first pieces that I get to clean. I so hope I don't break them. Granny says to handle them like you have no thumbs and you will be alright. We will see if that works.
Then my Rodeo was rained out so I didn't get to go Practice anywhere but here at the house. I did get time to go support a very important cause though. I have a friend who has fought and won the battle against Cancer. Mom and her friend took me to the local Relay for life and I had a blast. We bought lanterns for my Grandpa and supported my friend by walking with him, bidding in silent auctions and eating at the concession stand. To top that off they had lighted wands for sale and live music and pie eating contests and much to much to list everything here. It lasts all night but since Mom had to work the next morning we left at 11pm and I even won a 4th of July party basket in the silent auction.
Saturday was my work day. I went to the sale with Dad and ended up buying a Frizzle. It is a kind of Chicken and they look like they are in a wind storm all the time because their feathers are going backwards. I love them and think they are so cool. When I got home I mowed, mowed, Mowed. First I mowed the shelter dog yards and then I headed up to Ms. purlsandknit's house to take care of her yard and garden while she is enjoying her weekend. I am sure you can read about it when she gets back on her blog at http://purlsandknit.com/blog I bet she is having so much fun.
Today I am going to Ricky's house so we can do some bird swapping, moving and mind storming. I want to show him my new Frizzle and see what he thinks and I might bring a pair or two of his home with me but I will keep you posted on what goes on with us today.
