Since things are quite in the barn for the moment, and my Mother was feeling a bit better, and Hubby was able to get off work a couple hours early, and since it is March Break. We decided to leave town for the afternoon.
We only went 2 hours away but it was very nice to get away with my family. We went to visit friends I have not talked with or seen in ages. (With my Mom being ill they new I was busy) we had the most wonderful time. Hubby took the girls to a horse farm to look at a few horses, as we are looking for a well broke saddle horse for Jill. She has outgrown Muffin our pony, and Nellie has arthritis and can only been ridden very lightly around the pen. So she needs a bigger horse now.
After long decisions she found one. She will be delivered on Sunday if the weather permits.
Oh my how everyone's children has grown so much. I could not believe it. As they were the same about ours.
We left all our friends with the truck full of goodies they sent us home with. They are all such good people. They gave game me 2 oil lamp shades as I broke mine. The kiddies got new lead ropes as they get them from a man who makes his own further down the province. I brought them some chocolate goodies and in return they sent me home with a tin of Jill's favorite oat cakes cookies.
We went to Dairy Queen for supper, and then the bulk food store, and the Mall. The girls finally got to spend their gift cards they had gotten for Christmas for their favorite store.
We headed for home in the dark, and got settled back home around 10.
What a wonderful day. Weather was perfect, roads were good,and I got to spend some time with my family.
