For those familiar with donkeys, I know he is grossly overweight. The Box R has over 500 acres, many in pasture for the cows. It has not done the donkey population any service, but we'll be working on getting this boy down to a healthy weight. He was never named, so it was high time he had his own moniker and to that end we have dubbed him Sugarfoot although Hot Foot was mentioned too.
It is fire season!
The long of it has been measured, chained, spread and beamed.
I do so love to see the warps in their unwoven stage.
At present we are a quarter into the threading and while I probably won't get the whole ten yards woven, I will be able to get the three towels I need for the fire department's fall dance and auction. I'll cut them off and retie the warp.
In other news, we also welcomed a in freezer.
I have not named the freezer, nor will I. Who could beat a name like Magic Chef anyway? ;) I opted for the smallest upright I could find which is 8.8 cubic feet. This was actually scoped out in Massachusetts when I visited in May. This is freezer number 2 as when we plugged in freezer number 1 it did a fine job of letting ice cream melt and nothing else. I would have gotten pictures of it too, but DH was WAY too grumpy at having to load it back up for a second run to Home Depot to even consider pulling out the camera and lets face it, one picture of a freezer is quite sufficient I'm sure.
Sunday was spent watching football. Basically every team I was rooting for lost, with the exception of the Jets and it looked like they were going to lose for most of the game. The game that did count though was last night and thankfully my team won.
And before football Sunday, there was a nice long walk in the woods with Robin.
We both enjoyed it and for parting shots, I'll leave you with just a taste of our stroll.
