I didn’t ride today… Too much to do, so I babysat Toria’s kids and tried to get ready for branding!
I don’t think I’ve sat down very much today. Once in the rocking chair to get Matthew to take a nap this morning… and I was wishing he didn’t fall asleep so fast this time! Again at lunch. And supper. And when the clock said 10 pm, I said “I quit.”
Someone mentioned to me the other day, that they couldn’t understand anyone who liked spring… The work load quadruples and there never is enough time to get things done! Today I agree. Getting ready for branding makes lots of work for everyone… the cowboys and cooks both!
We will be serving roast beef sandwiches, au jus, potato salad, chips, frito corn salad, a green salad, relish tray, orange jello salad, deviled eggs, watermelon, grapes, pop and iced tea. There will be monster cookies, blueberry cake, german chocolate cupcakes, ice cream, and my chocolate covered rice krispy treats. The lawn is mowed and mostly trimmed… the seats are set out as are the serving tables. Toys are picked up and the sidewalk chalk washed off (I’m sure temporarily!).
The pop is chilling in the extra fridge, (I HATE running out of stuff to drink or serving warm pop… c’mon, ice maker!) Tomorrow, I should just be able to heat up the meat, make the iced tea and au jus… Wipe down the bathrooms and maybe sweep the floor! Then it’ll be off to BRAND.
I’m sure I will forget something…
Oh, how about some pics from yesterday???
I like this one, just because it’s taken in the sorting grounds and I love the view from here… plus… HAPPY PAIRS. The wind was kind of cool, but the ground was warm… I tried it myself and it helped take the chill off!
That’s it for now…
