Home again home again, Jiggity Jig

I was able to go home this weekend! I absolutely LOVE going home. Everything I care about is there and I love seeing it all! Sometimes I don't get to see everyone... I didn't get to see Ashlee but I'm sure I'll see her next time I'm home!
I did get to see all my horses. They had their feet trimmed on Saturday morning- in the rain. It only took an hour to do all 6 though. It usually takes a little over two hours. I also got to see my family, but I spent most of my time at the "fair".
Friday night, Saturday from 10 to 8, and Sunday 10 to 3 I was at the NJSA Swine show at the Ag center in Perry. Josh shows pigs so I was there to watch him. Friday was Showmanship... he didn't get anything in that one. Saturday was the gilt (female) and boar show. His sister Alexis showed the gilt and I think she ended up getting Second in class. His dad, Mr. Troy, showed the Boar.
He also got second in class, I think. and then Sunday was the Barrow (castrated male) show. Josh showed this pig and he got first in class and reserve champion for the breed!
Other than that I just rode Flint around for a while and had a few neighborly conversations. I also went and saw my neighbors new puppies. 9 Australian Shepards! They were so cute.
That was my weekend... just laid back and didn't do much but sit!
Hope y'all had a good weekend!

Len and Binsey's

MLK Holiday means three day weekend so I flew the Auburn coop leaving my dear Coal Kitty behind with the roomie. Then I get a text her boyfriend came back into town early- I hope she doesn't forget about Coal while they are in the midst of their.... busy schedule.

I came to my sis's house in north north north alaBAMA.
It's FREEZING! I hate the cold. I can't ride and I can't even go outside! It snowed yesterday while we were in Chattanooga shopping... brrrr. We went to a baby shower yesterday for Lin's sister-in-law. That was fun! My mom came up for the weekend too! I'm glad I get to spend time with them!

I was woken up by a flushing toilet at about 1:30 this morning. I get up this morning and my sister is coming up the stairs with a glass of water and a medicine bottle. My mom was sick. you don't wanna know what kind of virus she has! So I'm down stairs updating this and looking at many other blogs... like this martini mom one. and this one with twins. and and this one.. they are SO funny. So if you are one of those random people who's blog I am now following... it is because I love reading stories about kids and the funny things they say! I'm not a stalker... I'm in it for the humor! ;)

and of course my Ash's blog. It's about my precious niece. you can find it HERE!

Back to reading funny blogs!I have some reading to do too :(
Back to school is no fun.
and I'm ready to go home to see my Josh.

Y'all have a good holiday!
Maybe if i get bored enough I will put up a blog on one of two of my horses! or maybe I'll switch it up and do a dog... or cat!
