Eros and I took a walk outside too. And everyone had a nice curry. SO wonderful to spend time with them again.
So that's my big news for this past week! But I did some other things over the weekend too. Now that it's getting nice out, it's for sure getting to be iced coffee season. So I brewed myself a bunch of black coffee to keep in the fridge for the next few days. Plus, I made unicorn coffee cubes.
I also made sure that both days this glorious weekend the pups and I took an hour to be outside and enjoy the sunshine. They only last an hour as they are very much house dogs. Pugs like their beds you know?

I got my quote this week for the ring and fence which will basically use all my horsey savings for awhile. But well worth it. I don't have a start date just yet, but hopefully soon. I spoke with the parentals and they agreed with my thoughts on taking Eros and Shiny home this summer. So once that fence and ring are repaired they can move here. Which will be amazing. It's been so weird having an empty barn. Especially when I walk in there and announce "Hi Guys!" out of habit and then remember there's no one there... Awkward.
So this weekend, I plan to finish moving stuff into the trailer. I also want to do some more in-barn organizing. I needed to figure out what was going in the trailer before I reorganized everything that lives in the barn/corn crib. I also need to move Pammon's stuff to the correct locker at the barn, and bring home some of the winter stuff to wash. So lots to do this weekend!
How are things with all of you? Getting your spring cleaning done? Have you been able to see your horses?

I spent several hours looking everywhere they could possibly have been. I've deduced that I must have either left them at the trailer dealer, or dropped them at the truck dealer when I traded the truck. Because they are definitely not at my house. Along with those keys, I'm also missing some keys for a trunk lock and a bike lock that I use for the tack room at away shows. So that's a bummer, but all things I can easily replace. So that's not so bad. Fortunately, the trunk lock that no longer has a key was not on the trunk!
The good news is, thanks to Hillary, I now know that there are only a handful of different locks for trailers. And there are websites where you can just order new keys. So $27 later, I have three new keys on their way to me. Fingers crossed they work.
I did still start moving things back in. I had ordered some new plastic tubs so my stuff is super tidy (and matchy). For blankets and coolers though, I have different tubs on order. Since those things are heavy I wanted wheeled tubs instead. They won't match the others, but that's okay. They just delivered a few minutes ago, so hopefully I'll get that completed this weekend. Then I just need to clean out the tack box and make a list of things that need replacing in there. I obviously don't need any of that any time soon. But it's nice to have a list and feel like it's organized.
Anyway, today's confession is about the keys. Have any of you lost keys? Seems a pretty common occurrence.

It was terrible weather this weekend, cold (in the 40's Saturday!) and really windy. So I didn't feel so sad about staying inside and getting things done. I did get to visit the horses on Saturday morning. I had to drop off supplements again and Pammon was almost out of his treat pockets for his meds. It was perfect timing as he was just heading out for his walk. While I was watching him walk, Eros came out for his hand walk, too. So I got to see both boys out and about. Shiny I visited in her stall, and everyone was pumped full of snacks accordingly. Still waiting on the quote to fix my ring, but hopefully that will get moving along soon. I haven't talked to the parentals yet, but I'm leaning towards bringing Eros and Shiny home and keeping Pammon at the barn with Fefe for the summer. But we'll see. Eros isn't just my horse, so I have to see if the family will be okay with that.
Sunday was a little nicer, fortunately, and I got to socially distantly visit with my mom for Mother's Day. I had flowers delivered ahead of time and her gift had arrived earlier in the week. So no contact required. And I even brought my own folding chair for comfort. Ha! Life is so weird right now.
I got to see my nieces from a distance last week also as they both had birthdays. So I guess it was a very "social" week for me! It was really nice to see my family, even from a distance. Dad and Stepmom will be home in a couple weeks (Fefe too) so that will be nice also.
So I guess that's it for now. Hope you're all hanging in there!

I think with all my house cleaning and moving into the upstairs after all these years, I've dislodged all their secret living places. So I guess I've been living with a lot of mice all over the house for a long tine and was just in denial. How gross.
So that's today's confession. It's mouse hunting season.
And as promised I have a Tuesday outfit to share. Not a full post, just some pics for you:
