Today is the first sort-of day of my hiatus. There is still technically one commission I’m supposed to do, but the client isn’t responding. So, I’m calling it “sort-of hiatus.” It’s been an interesting start: Ebony got an eye inflammation, so I had the vet come out. It’s just as well—the herd was going to be due for their vaccinations in a couple of months anyway, so I went ahead and had it all done at once. The herd is all looking at me suspiciously now, but we’ve come a long way since last year, when they would have completely shunned me entirely. Now they’re just a bit leery of me getting close, but once I get started scratching them, they settle into it. Poor Ebony, though: her eye is nearly swollen shut with the inflammation, and she is super head-shy now. Putting drops in her eyes the next few days is not gonna be a lot of fun…
On to happier topics: I finally got the sprayer assembled (at no small expense: my thumb got smashed in the process), but at least it’s assembled now and ready to hook up to the tractor. I gotta mow this weekend. Holy crap, the grass got two feet tall in a couple of days! Glad I don’t grow that fast.
I gotta admit, now that I’m on hiatus, I don’t know what to do with myself. Truth be told, there’s not a lot I want to do with myself right now. There’s plenty I could be doing, but I think I’m gonna stick to watching South Park reruns and taking it easy…you know, like I was gonna do a month ago when I took that week off…heh. I do know one thing, though: I’m gonna have a beer!
Time to go relax. I’ll post on here, FA, and IB when I’m re-opening. If you want me to let you know personally, send me a message, and I’ll add you to the list.
