I think Salsa felt a bit better today. Her face is not quite as swollen. Today she slept alot in the sun, which, as often happens, follows a foggy morning. She ate grass I cut for her and she is drinking ably enough. And she is SO GOOD about her injections and I think she likes her homepathics.
Went to see Muzz today and brushed him. Forgot to use my camera. At least I remembered to bring it. (There there you slow new older blogger.)
Today..in the sunshine.. I finished painting a shed at the local farm park that was designed and started by my year 10 class last term. When I say 'finished' it was really only outlining everything in black. The picture kind of sums up how today turned out. Rather nicely.

This is the sad swollen sweet girl. She is drinking but can only mouth and suck on food. Today to deliver some of her homeopathics I had to pull a wad of grass and hay out. Still it must be a comfort. Also enduring 3 injections a day at present. Anti biotics, anti inflamatories and pain relief. We are covering all bases. But while I was out there....
'Hey Boo, I was actually here for the horses.'
Horses? No bi (uni!)cycle and Barbeque
These are two of my favourite young horse handbooks- sorry can't rotate it seems. Michael Schaffer and Tom Roberts. Saw Muzz today, picked up poo in his paddock and said hello.
Next week.... I promise Muzzy!
And this is the jacket,almost finished. Buttonholes are made, just have to sew 5 buttons on. I'll do that tonight while watching a movie. I really wanted to show you a great soup Bob made last night- Pork and Beans- Anyone know and love Old Crow Medicine Show?They did a song with the words 'tastes like pork and beans'. But I thought about it as I was finishing it off todayand my camera was not at hand AND an amazing-even Bob liked it **** you don't know how amazing that is- Baked Vanilla Cheesecake from a Donna Hay magazine. I treat myself to those once in a while for something to read in the loo. I love the photos as much as the food. I only ever seem to make sweet things? The cheesecake looked better in my opinion than their photo!

This is Mike our vet from next door- handy eh- stitching the girl up. Nil or minimal damage in her mouth, but sore and swollen and can't eat or suck. Might be hungry for a couple of days.

The short dog has a stuffed toy obsession, fed by us with virtually giveaway stuffed toys from the recycling centre. I imagine his stuffed toy hunting has allowed us a practically 'unchewed slipper' puppyhood.
This is a new unfinished painitng, probably about two months old. Wabi sabi. Know what I mean?
And MUZZ? And my fat fitness? Took Muzzy back to his paddock yesterday. Got busy driving for Bob delivering a horse float to some people who hired him to pick them up at the end of a big ride and it rained and I sewed and I ate and I slept and I cooked a really nice pasta dish for dinner.

The horse in the pic above is MUZZ! Yay Muzz features again. I had such a good time yesterday getting him out of his paddock and down the road to here. He was so funny and clever and giving- giving in the end. In the beginning he told me he couldn't jump out of his paddock over the ditch/creek and up the bank. No way. So we waited and I kept offering him the feel of where I wanted him to go and pointing him in the right direction and then all by himself with no help from me he went ok, so the other side of the creek is where you want me and he gathered himself onto his hind and lifted his front up up up and over he popped. Poor guy he seemed sure his life would end once over or on the way, but it didn't, and now, after meeting for the first time drains and curbs and white lines, workers welding and a kids playground he's in his yard next to Sass- who you can't see and tomorrow no doubt we'll have fun again when I take him back.
Autumn harvest, pumkin, last of the tomatoes - we had a really good tomato season, and pine cones (from our land sniff sniff).
Back to messy, here's a little autumn jewel hiding in the tangle on the South side of our house.
Snapshot of our back doorstep. Messy, busy, practical. I love the volunteered Sage. We are good friends. On first name basis. And look below my vege plot! You can't see the details but there are leeks, cabbages, kale, carrots, spring onions, radishes, broad beans, silver beet, celery, runner beans and a couple of other things too.
