i did up the diabetics and was up in the hideaway suite by just after 8am...and i slept, and then i read, and then i slept, and then i watched a bit of a movie, and then i slept. i finally got out of that freaking puffy and stuffy recliner around 3 pm this afternoon. and i do feel better.
heads up to the weekend warriors...the house dryer is broken and it is not going off for repair unil monday. we don't have anyone to switch the spares around right now BUT..it is not a big deal. it is so hot, the laundry is drying quickly on the fences. the only thing is please be really careful what goes into the laundry this weekend, shake out and re-use anything that you can....if one of those monsterous mega piles forms...we will be TOTALLY SCREWED.
also...re: mya the new dog. she is doing quite well but is not ready to be running around loose on the property yet. she can go out in the front yard...supervised... but needs to be brought right back in again. also she is a bit uncomfortble with the whole free roaming/free feeding thing, it makes her nervous so she is hesitent to actually eat. please feed her a full can of wet food and hold it for her while she eats...i will feed her again in the evening when i get home from work.
babette the bitchy cat is here and she is in the cage in the mp communal cat room...to safely clean her cage..first give her a tasty big bowl of canned cat food off in the cage corner, out of the way...she really does like her chow! then get her cage done quickly ad efficiently and it should be ok. if this doesn't work..leave her for me and i will do her on my break.
i am on early shift again tomorrow and sunday which means i am leaving here before 6 am so i will not have time to feed the shop pigs or take sam and leah out for a pee....can someone post here and commit to taking care of these guys first thing in the morning please?
to the barn folks...we are starting on dixie's little barn on monday and it is going exactly where doc's current house is sooo...doc needs to be permanently evicted from his little house tomorrow so he has the weekend to adjust to living with chewey. they have already been together loose in the fields for most of this week, but now we have to finish the job and do the bedtime moving thing too. so let him out with the goats tomorrow morning and please don't put him back.
anyway here is the biggest issue...doc is so skinny he can slip out of the gaps of BOTH the goat area gates....if one of the handy guys are around..we need a latch or hook or chain or something at the bottom of both gates to keep the gaps closed (sort of like wills and charlottes top and bottom gate hooks.)
i know there are chains out in the shop work bench and the big U hooks and if needed we can cut the clip ends off of old crappy leashes to hook everything to.
also...gideon os still on his daily pain meds...pete is now moving to m/w/f so he won't need anything this weekend and flicka still need a small scoop of bute with her breakfast in the mornings.
i will try to get home for my lunch break.
