It’s officially fall! Autumn is here. And it’s beautiful. All leaves are changing colours, the weather gives a little night frost so now and then and the air seems to smell just different. Friday I went to the vet again with Scruffy. She is doing much better right now. The vet said to wait and see how she is doing the coming week. If she’s doing good, no surgery. If bad, there will be surgery done on Monday to take out the tumour. Because of her age the vet rather don’t do surgery if not needed. So I hope Scruffy keeps doing well. She’s doing great on our walks again, is happy and eats and drinks well. I made a new grazing area. I got cheap step in posts and made a large grazing area, all alongside the pasture fence.Horses love it of course. My mowing machines. Hahaha. Twice this week there was around 6 pm rain, sunshine and rainbows. It was so beautiful and a joy to watch. I made a grey water system with some gutters I still had laying around. I just put the gutter on the deck going to the ground, where I dug a hole the size of a bucket, so it will fit all the water I throw out. Now I don’t have to walk down the stairs to empty the bucket. Until it freezes day and night, I can use this. So handy! I rode Flicka on Saturday and Sunday. She is such a great horse. It was lots of fun. After I worked with Freya on the curtain again, and she did wonderful. Always so much fun to spend time with the horses. In the evening I was invited by Sheri to come and roast some hotdogs above the fire for supper. It was a great evening. Lots of laughs, good food and a great fire. Thanks Sheri. It was fun! Sunday morning I finished the floor insulation under the cabin. Not easy, but it went much faster then I thought. I have lots of insulation left over so I can use that for something else. Insulation is always good for something. Hahaha. I’m very happy it’s done, with winter getting closer. Another task done! YAY!
