When we were all ready to go we went into the truck and waited until Mom was finished telling the dogs go in your home. When we go somewhere the dogs follow until Mom gets after them. When we were half way to town we went down a road to pick up Megan. Mom said " Do you know where you are going Bry" and he replied " Yes I do, do you know how much many times I was on there".
Down we go on a okay road. The truck steering isn't that great so we were all over the place. Mom was like basically having her hands over her eyes so that she doesn't have to see it. Tyrell and I were in the back and we were laughing our heads off. Dad was enjoying it also. When we arrived Megan was already to go and so she jumped into the truck and ready to go to town.
Dad dropped us girls at the Butcher Block and we took the car ( Darcy worked at the Butcher Block today and he took the car) and then we went to kill 30 minutes. We went to the bag sale and I got lots of hoodies and a pair of pants.
Dad came and picked me up for my piano lessons. Laurel loved me playing the piano. She said that I was VERY good. I had some ups and downs so she corrected me. Dad picked me up and we went to see Mom. Dad and Megan were off to FSJ and us kids and our Mom were going to go swimming with Alise instead of skating.
We went swimming and that was so fun. We went into the steam room and oh was that ever hot. I saw my old friends from public school. After swimming we went and decided to go to Tim Hortons for some lunch. Alise and I had a table of our own and we had some delicious lunch. Later on Mrs. Ford came while we were just leaving. Mom stayed with Tyrell and I went with Alise because it was almost time for sewing.
We went to sewing and guess what. I finished my blanket well not MY blanket a baby blanket for the people who bought our house. I don't know what to make for sewing any ideas????? Mom picked me up. Dad did buy the truck and picked up Darcy.
We went out for supper at Subway then went home.

Ah today is Wednesday. The weekend goes by so fast. Soon we will start our town days again next week because all you know of me sewing and playing the piano.
Today I got up and had some eggs on toast then got dressed. It was snowing again so we stayed inside and made a fire and I read a book. Its a pretty good book if I say so myself.
We stayed in the cabin for a bit then we did the goats and then we rode the horses. It was so fun but Moniet was being a cow. She would body check me and its so not fun.
I went inside and made a nice hot fire and then made a pot of tea for Mom and Dad. I made them eggs on toast while Mom was on the computer and then I washed the dishes and then watched Corner Gas with Tyrell.

By the way, yesterday Wes and Debbie and their children came. We always love it when they come. They dropped of their horses. It was a very nice time with them. Grace wanted to stay outside while the adults went inside of the cabin so I played with Grace. It was so hilarious when I had the kitty Marshmallow she said " I feed kitty" and so then we fed them for a little bit and then fed the goats some bread and some hay.
We went in with the kitty. We don't let the kitties in but it was so nice for Grace. We drew pictures. Grace just went on the bed and she curled up in the blankets and pillows with the kitty, it was so funny we hardly could see her or the cat.
Later on we went for a walk to the dugouts to see if they were full from the runoff. It was a long walk but the day was so warm, it was nice.

Yesterday our neighbor came up with the last of our runaway goats, it was the beast with the horns, Gazelle. Our neighbour tied them to the corral rail with a bowline knot. Mom said she didn't know how to tie a bowline and was embarrassed that she didn't know.
We found a website called "how to tie a bowline knot". It is quite simple. Last night we all got some rope and practiced and practiced it took a few hours but finally we were all tying bowlines. The bowline is called the king of knots.
We timed ourselves. And guess what, I just learned it and I was so fast at it Mom said that I finally beat my old recorded!!! First it was like 10 seconds and then 6 seconds and then 5 and now 4 seconds!!!!That's pretty good because I just learned it last night.
We had some lunch. It was time to tame the goats. We were checking, feeding, and tying them up because the Gazelle and the buck were tangled up together and stuck. We did that for sometime and then we went to the horses. This is where the bowline was put into affect. I tied up Delevaga and Chico and gave them a good brushing, they liked that.
Tyrell picked out their feet and then mom led us around in the field and down to the willow grove. I am wondering if I can set up a jumping place. I would like to have my horse learn to jump. Mom said we can set up a course for the horses. But we don't know who will like to jump.
We rode them and then I walked Reggie. I made a nice fire and we are making some hamburger soup.
Well talk to you later.

I didn't have Reggie on his leash so I just let him off freely and I turned my back for a minute and he was out of site!!!! I thought he had taken off to go to the corral where all the poop is. Its a scary feeling when it does happen especially when you don't know where he is.
I played monopoly with Tyrell and we played for a long time!!!! Now we have all hotels on each peace of land. Tyrell was getting broke and kept getting in debt to be even though you has like way more hotels then me.
That's pretty much it besides playing on the computer and stuff... (this is Saturday's post)

It is very windy outside. This morning Megan was telling us how we should buy a kite because its such good weather. Yesterday we had a tiny little snow blizzard. Can you believe it was snowing yesterday!!!???
I am so sore from riding Moniet I don't think I will go riding today.... Lets just see how it goes shall we. Megan is making Banana Cake right now and Tyrell is outside playing with his dogs. This is going to be a very short entry so maybe tonight I will write longer one.

When I got in I had some breakfast. Mom said that I could make some soup because the other day we had some chicken. This is my very first time making soup so lets just see how it is. Mom got a pot full of water and put it on the stove to boil the chicken nourishment out for the broth for the soup.
I strained the chicken broth and oh was the pot heavy.
I picked off the meat that was on the chicken and put it in the pot. And it was so dirty and gross putting your hands in a greasy and slimy chicken and I burnt my hands because it was boiling lots.
I put in some pearl barley and some soup mixes and it is looking pretty good. When I put some spices in, it smelt so good. I stirred it and I added a little bit of this and a little bit there.
Dad and Tyrell got home from town. I was waiting for the soup to cook so I put it on medium and I just sat down. Dad was hungry so I made him some sausages and eggs.
He liked it very much. I made some tea because Mom and Dad wanted to have a chat. I love to serve up tea....especially if there are some special goodies to go with it.
Oh, the snow pot is empty so out I go to find some clean snow, and that is getting more difficult to find as spring is taking it away....It was a good time for a walk with Reggie he loves to get snow with me.
Tyrell is doing dishes with mom and I get to read the Bargan Hunter, our local used items paper. I have to say it was terribly enjoyable to look over the top of the paper and see Tyrell doing the dishes that I had dirtied all that day.
Now Ladies keep on top of your dishes or else you will have the consequence of having to many at one time and you probably don`t have a little brother that will do them all for you when you put your feet up at the end of the day!!!

We got back from Jesse’s place ( my brother). Mom and Dad dropped me off at Jesse’s while they were getting the goats. I did the laundry and did his dishes. When Mom and Dad had arrived we got all nice and settled in.
When they got the goats all nice and tied up, I am not so sure they were that happy to be home.They were enjoying travelling the countryside. Well they were taste testing all the neighbours shrubs and apple trees. Why would they be happy about plain old hay?
We arrived home to the cabin late that evening ,with a nice chicken in a pot, we had found in my brothers fridge. I love to be the one to get the cook stove fired up. Tyrell had cut me all the kindling I needed and mom put all my favorite spices on and the wonderful smell of roast chicken filled the cabin a very short time.
I took Reggie for a walk and he loved it. I needed some snow to wash dishes because we don’t want to waste our good drinking water just for washing.
I am watching Corner Gas (its a really good show) and Tyrell is watching Daniel Boone ( it is really really old and corny show) Dad is playing on the computer and guess what!!!! He’s playing Scrabble.
Well, until tomorrow dear friends….good day and just remember girls you don’t have to melt snow to wash your dishes.
