I (kind of) went back to work the first weekend of this month. I'm just working half days, but it feels soooooo good to be back. I really do love my job, even though it's not terribly hard. I'm pretty much just doing barn chores and turning in horses without cleaning stalls. It's very refreshing to be back in some capacity!
I had a birthday yesterday...
Random question of the day: Have you ever sneezed into a cup of tea? I did, the other day. It makes a very interesting sort of gurgling sound, and a huge mess. I giggled like a four year old for about fifteen minutes while I was busy cleaning it up. Totally hilarious.
Poor Cody had to go to the vet a few weeks ago. I think he drank some lake water from Lake of the Isles, and ended up with very bad diarrhea. My poor boy spent most of his time outside for about five days--and he was on antibiotics and a special diet. He's much better now.

One of the plants is apparently a "seed plant," meaning we are to take the seeds from the huge mutant cucumbers that grow from it. Seriously, I picked a cucumber last week that was almost two feet long and three inches wide, and there are two more that are going to be ready to pick soon! We have more tomatoes than we know what to do with--we canned some as diced tomatoes this past weekend, and there are a ton more that we will probably make into sauce. TONS of cherry tomatoes and jalepeno peppers, too. Maybe next year we can grow stuff like lettuce and corn--if we can keep the bunnies and squirrels out of it. I never knew that squirrels liked tomatoes--w
