Cat Litter, Hay, and Wine

Last night I cut grass for a couple hours on the tractor after I got home. Tia and Kendall were out enjoying girl’s afternoon, so I decided to get some work done. Just a little breeze was blowing, and my allergies acted up a bit. I took Benedryl, and cleaned up as the girls got home. Tia wanted to ride a bit as the sun went down, and Kendall wanted me to play with her and hew new bouncy ball a bit. I was tired, but I did, bouncing the ball in the driveway a bit. Then we went up to watch a little TV together.

As it got dark, I wanted to spend a little time with my wife. So I grabbed a plastic wineglass, a bottle of Klinker Brick, and walked out to the barn to talk with Tia as she finished chores. We shared a little wine, while cleaning litter boxes in the barn, putting out some hay, and finishing graining the horses. Well, Tia did that while I watched and chatted with her.

Not the way most couples end a day, but that’s life on the ranch, and it’s great.
