Around the Homestead

My 30th Birthday…

I had a great 30th birthday over the weekend.  It was a cool, cloudy day with a little misting off and on.  However, it was my day to do whatever I wanted.  We slept in until 8:00 which is big stuff for us.  Then, Randy made me breakfast:

Homegrown Eggs on Homemade Bread

We decided to go visit my Grandma and then headed to mom and dad’s for a visit.  Mom was gone for the weekend to a wedding, so we chatted with Dad and played with the dogs (my brother’s two dogs were there since he was at the wedding also).

We skimped on lunch and just cooked some hotdogs over the fire.

Here is where our little dog, Koal, stayed while the fire was blazing.  Their dog house is elevated, so he is underneath it as far away from the fire as possible.  Poor little guy!

Of course ball was involved for the cow dogs!

Dinner included:

Pork Chops (on our propane grill)

Apples on the campfire

Potatoes on the campfire

It was wonderful!

After a few rounds of ball.  Who looks like the better conditioned dog?  If Ash’s defence Thai was living on the streets and had to be in shape.  All Ash has to do was make it to her food bowl twice a day.

I also spent some time picking apples, tomatoes, canning, and dehydrating over the weekend.

And while I was busy canning the dogs were busy also.
