Anyhoodle...I tried to muck out the barn yesterday (hasn't been touched for about three months because it's been cold and frozen out there), and got about two hours' worth of hauling before the mud took over. By that point I was sweaty and my arms were aching, so it was a good place to stop. XD Then it rained steadily from late yesterday evening to sometime this morning, and then--gasp! Wonder of wonders, the sun came out! I haven't seen it for over two weeks--this is astounding!
I also wrote out a budget for the first time yesterday...it was rather rewarding, actually. I earn a lot more than I thought I did. I also spend a lot more than I thought I did. So my budget is taking some tightening measures, and I've been thinking of ways to earn money art-wise. The only things that seems to be selling around in this area in the art category are things like buildings and landscapes...sigh. Measures will have to be taken to adapt to the local demand.
I need to sell one of the horses...Shiska, to be exact. The original plan was that my older brother was going to take her when he got out of the Coast Guard. But he's signed up for the next four years, and...well to make a long story short, I'm going to have to start looking around for someone to buy Shiska. She'll be 3 in July, and much to my embarrassment all she knows is how to lead, trailer, and pick up her feet. But she likes people, and she's really smart...I just don't have time to work with her--she's on the small side too, so I've been afraid to actually get on her back in the past. So, time to run some ads in the paper. XD
Yup, so there's life now. I'm glad we had this talk. XD
Love, Brambles de la Fox
