The day started off...uhhhhhh badly. I don't like it when the voice I hear coming out of my mouth is the school teacher one. Be that as it may.....we had some difference of opinion about what was and was not a good action. So our departure was postponed by scoldings. Dang it.
After we had the attitude adjustment we headed out to the junkstore for a cookie sheet to slide under the door when we are not home so the new cat Cybella the brat won't destroy any more of the carpet by pulling it up. Yeah well we try. The boys dropped us off and went to the hardware store for a deodorant block for the swamp cooler. I'm not particularly fond of fish tank smell in the afternoons when the water heats up so there ya go.
While at the junkstore we found faux books (huge) to hold the chalk and eraser for the now blackboard coffee table in the living room. I still owe you pix of the table. They play hangman for hours and draw to their hearts content. I love my new cheapy blackboard table. So cool. Also we found kinda metal thingies to shove under the door for her royal hiney Cybella.
So off for an adventure with 60's music blaring, kids laughing at us for singing and dancing and then we ended up at the foot of the Sandias, after lunch for a visit with our favorite herd of Bison. They look so nasty at this time of year when they are molting but in another month, they will be the gorgeous creatures we love. I didn't know this but the patches of hair that falls off when they molt was used for spinning and weaving. The buffalo molt can be carded and separated. Who knew? The Native Americans found value in every part of the buffalo, no wonder they were worshiped.....food, clothing, fuel, shelter.....all from one critter.
So today we had a photo shoot on the back porch for an upcoming event. I'll leave you with the smiles of two happy grands.
