Saturday wound up being a little annoying. I had to first wait for my mom to come get me so I could pick my car up at the tire place. Byebye $1200 dollars, but hello smooth ride! Next I had to drive up to the Apple store to replace my rapidly dying phone. Fortunately, I am partial to the little bitty Iphone SE so it didn't break the bank too much more than the tires already had. But it did take an hour and half to transfer all my stuff over. Ugh. I traded in my old phone, or I would have just done it at home.
I finally got back to the farm around 1:30 to find that my helper had accidentally ran over the tail gate for the Gator. Hopefully her nephew can straighten it back out, or there goes another $200. Adulting is expensive you guys!
But finally, I had time to get Jampy out. He had a nice lunge and was only mildly nutty. I expected him to be a total turn nugget due to aforementioned shed building happening next door. But he was pretty good. I didn't get any media since I hoped to jump on Saturday. Jumping media is more exciting that flat work media, no? Since I rode on the later side, I let him air dry outside instead of hosing him off. He liked that plan just fine.
I spent Saturday night doing some crafts. I had seen a tutorial for a cute bracelet that I wanted to make and had ordered the supplies for already. I just hadn't had time to try it! I was pretty pooped Saturday, so it was the perfect evening to try it out.
And then it was Sunday already. Seriously, how does that happen so quickly? I didn't want to waste too much of the day as it was BEAUTIFUL out! I had a few things I had/wanted to get done. Rather than rush around like a crazy person though, I took myself into town for a quick breakfast before heading off to run errands. Oh! And I also finally put my new door mat out. I got it last year from a fundraiser for a Pug Rescue, but didn't want to put it out until the snow was done for the year.
I figured I had wasted enough time that the neighbor would be done with the shed, but alas, he was not. I decided not to jump while that was going on. Jamp was really trying to be a trooper about the whole thing, and I didn't want to ruin it.
Monday was a big day at the farm as you already know. Rio's 22nd Birthday!
I curried him head to toe and then finished him off with a layer of fly spray and a buffing with the Diva brush. Then I dressed him up in his birthday outfit:
