Busy Week!

 

First I took a trip to Eastern Washington for one night, then three nights at my Grandparents house. Then I come home and I have the weekend packed full of things to do! Riding horses,going to the town festival and spending time with Josh. :) Yes, very busy, but still fun.

Arena

This was the COOLEST arena ever! (we went here with my grandparents) It was sooo big and it was the nicest horse arena I had ever been to, sadly though I didn’t ride in it. I ate lunch there! lol If you look on the right side of the picture there is a glass wall above the arena, it’s a restaurant! Yep, a restaurant that looked over a covered riding area. Inside the restaurant it was decorated in a horsey d├ęcor. :)

Some of the horses that they work with at this ranch are worth more than cars and some houses! :0

planes

My grandparents also took my brother, sister and I to Boeing for a tour of the plant. We didn’t get to bring and cameras or phones with us inside so I just took a picture of the planes outside. The planes are HUGE!

We also went on a walk through the woods while staying at my grandparents house. Back in the woods there was an old wood mill, you can kinda see it in the picture, through all of the brush.

The mill was next to this beautiful pond.

Homemade Tortilla Chips….

First I cut the tortillas into eighths.

Then I stick them into the preheated oil and let them fry for about 20 to 40 seconds, each side, or until lightly browned.

I then stuck the chips onto a plate with a paper towel (to absorb the oil drips) and sprinkled them with salt, while they are still hot.

I let them cool, then serve. Super easy!

NUMMY! :)

Finished Projects… (Finally)


Several months ago I started two projects, one with yarn and the other an old sheet. Well I finished!!!!!!

My crocheted project was a brown throw, which is a giant granny square. :)



And my project with the sheet was a summer dress! :) The pattern I also got at the thrift store, and for only 1$. Though I admit I didn’t exactly follow the pattern, and therefore had to redo a lot of things. lol For the straps I used an old pair of denim jean legs that I had cut off for shorts. The pink band was just some scrap that I had in a pile.

It’s a jumble of stuff, however it turned out pretty good. :)

Photography of horses is by far my favorite, I know a shock right! lol I really enjoy photographing them, you don’t have to worry about funny looks or trying to get them to smile. They just almost always look great. :)

Art and a Silly Hen….

This is a watercolor, acrylic painting of our house that I painted for my mom’s birthday (it was a day late). I started out with watercolors, but the I ran out, so I used my acrylics and made the watery. lol

This one of the Arabian is one of my new favorites. :)

I drew my bantam chicken laying on her nest because it has a neat story to go with it. My silly chicken, Nugget, has been laying on this nest for about a month or more and underneath her has been a golf ball. We put it there to encourage her to lay her own eggs, but she didn’t get it and just sat on the ball.


Well a week ago I was talking to a friend and she told me about her ducks and how her and her husband had just got a drake. However they didn’t want their girls to sit on the eggs, because they eat their eggs (the humans). So I asked about getting a few from her for my hen to lay on. My friend liked the idea and brought some over.


Oh my gosh I have never seen this little hen as mad as when I pulled the golf ball out from underneath her! I tried holding her so I could put the eggs on the nest, without loosing my hand haha. Well I got three on the nest then I lost control of the angry, little Nugget. She ran to the nest box, but I still had one more egg. Though I didn’t think it’d fit being as the eggs were about three times the size of a bantam’s egg. I placed the egg in front of her nest to see what she thought about it and to my surprise she rolled it under her and fluffed herself up to cover up all of the four duck eggs!


So now we shall see if my silly hen gets to be a Mom to four ducklings. :)

Josh took me out to a movie about a week or two ago so went and saw Cars 2 in 3D. :) Good movie! not as good as the first but it was a lot more funny than the first.

When we got to the theater we got to see Lighting McQueen,
