Project 365 - Days 270-276

Well, I was right - it has been a crazy busy week but a lot of fun too!  This next week promises more of the same but at least I'll have some good pictures, right?

Day 270/365 - September 26

I've been driving by a place several times a week that is advertising bags of shavings for $3.50.  For those that don't know, this is a great deal.  To buy a bag of shavings at the feed store it costs $6-7 so this is a great savings.  I never saw anyone out front or a store to go into but they did have a phone number.  So I called and the man instructed me there was a lock box sitting on one of the bags of shavings where I could put my money.  Total honor system.  And the lock box wasn't even secured to anything.  Again, honor system.  I love the country!  So we loaded up with as much as we could and dropped our money in the box.  I need to get back there and load up with more as soon as possible!

Day 271/365 - September 27

I blogged about this earlier in the week but here was Belle getting her x-rays that confirmed the fractured tibia.

Day 272/365 - September 28

Here's another shot of Belle in her home for the next 6 weeks.  She's still pulling the cable down so today I'm off to buy a stronger cable and attach it a bit differently...

Day 273/365 - September 29

This picture was taken earlier in the week when Ava had set up a restaurant upstairs complete with a special menu (or "menou" as the case may be ;-)  What an imagination this girl has!

Day 274/365 - September 30

My parents are in town for Amelia's dedication later in the week.  Ava was so excited to see her Grandpa and Grandma when school let out!

Day 275/365 - October 1

My Dad was getting bored and wanted to be put to work!  So, I gave him the paint can and some paint brushes and set him to work painting the miles of fencing we have!  He's doing a great job!

Day 276/365 - October 2

My cousin Joni and my Aunt Dorothy drove into Dallas on Friday so Joni could check out some possible programs for her post graduate work.  They rolled up to our place Saturday afternoon and left a short 21 hours later.  We had a great time while they were here and as you can see, the girls quickly warmed up to them!

Until next time...


  1. We always put grandpa to work when he visits our house too. ;-) Hope Belle is doing better.

  2. What a blessing to be a part of your weekend! I hope everything went well at church last night and you were able to celebrate and dedicating little Amelia to prayer in growing up in your church family! Thanks again for giving me my riding fix! My legs still remain sore! ;)
