i am having a mindless wind down from stress and disappointment

we had a sick call so i did up the house. the volunteers yesterday did such a great job that i was able to whiz thru here and be done by noon...amazing...and thank you!!!!
today is the very first day since the day that we moved into saints..that no one, i mean no one.... has walked in thru my door, except me and the animals...now that just feels totally weird!!! so we did a bit of cleaning and we did some laundry too....i amused myself and made the dogs happy by sharing some little ghost marshmellows and smarties with the ancient crippled crew. some of these guys have never had a smartie, and i don't think any of them ever got a marshmellow ghost either..their initial reactions were pretty funny but once they got the taste of the true matter on their tongues, all of them were hooked!
everyone is quiet and sleeping...dee is upside down, with her head on a pillow... totally stretched out and leaking away on the red leather couch.... too cute! i have some really good leather cleaner that i will put to use, once she wakes up..for now she just looks too content and relaxed to worry about the leaking too much. i had to take off sydney's cone cuz he just can't eat or drink too well...his little face is too flat! i watched him like a hawk for his sneaking around and licking at his sutures..he finally got tired of me on his licking case so he is napping peacefully now too.
today we are the peaceable kingdom...it has been pouring rain out so everyone is content to stay in the house and just snooze. i did just briefly sneak out to the barn to ask andy to put out extra hay in the undercover areas cuz it was such a raining miserable day for all of the barn guys today. it bet they liked that...lots of hay in under cover dry areas....too bad 800 pound pigs and 1500 pound cows, and ancient horses, and goats and sheep and chickens and llamas too, can't snooze inside by the fire..but even i ain't crazy enough for that! as for the ducks..they love pouring down rain..they think it is a giant happy showering waterfall especially sent and delivered for them!
it is a sad day for saints rescue when we lost out on the big money for our vet bills..but in all honesty..the animals do not care one single bit..the house is clean, their beds are dry, the fires are lit, their food and water bowls are full and i am hanging around, puttering around doing not much except feeding them the occasional smartie and ghostly marshmellow...(thank you helga for those!!!!)..the animals say today...all is good.
