crapped out. Hence my very quiet blog this week. We are trying out US Cellular's "Hotspot" package. We have 15 days to decide before a two year commitment. If that doesn't work, then another satellite company will be auditioned. Going with Hughes again, is an option far, far down on the list of possibilities. Thank you Hughes for being such ass hats that you will charge us a ridiculous fee to come and fix your expensive satellite dish.
The sinuses are better, the headache is still there but seems to be improving slowly, a new humidifier is on its way and the deck is further along than these pictures taken last Friday.
You do get a better idea of the scale of the project though.
Today, Gene and friend Dominic will be putting on all the decking. I will be making spaghetti and meatballs. I haven't done meatballs in a long time.
Sewing has been pretty slow. A pair of pants done last weekend and a tunic that I need to redo the sleeves on. I'm guessing I was kind of asleep at the wheel so to speak. The dogs have all been good nurse maids though and willing to cuddle up for a nap any old time of day!
On a completely different subject, since Nick went on to his new digs in Klamath Falls and I have just had two horses to deal with (instead of the five I had a scant two years ago), I decided to go back to my original vitamin/mineral supplement maker. Horse Guard. Cooper and Dandy always looked and seemed to feel their best when taking them, but as the herd grew so did the expense and HG for five horses was too costly. For years everyone has gotten a good quality supplement, but not a great one. The two boys are looking great, fattening up for winter, growing in the healthiest curly coats I've seen in years and acting more like 8 year olds rather than 16 & 17. Of course good hay helps too and we have loaded in some really nice hay this year. Our hay guy is the same person who produced Stella and Robin and the older brother to our much adored past farrier Morgan. I didn't even know that until I had to write out a check for Stella to the same unusual last name.
