A real "crappy" weekend

Sloan's take on "American Gothic".

"No", I kept saying, just smile Zoe, and she didn't want anything to do with it.

Unloading more horse manure. Dean and Tony let Sloan press the button to make the trailer go up and down. She was so excited.

The girls watching as Dean and Tony work to spread out all the manure.

It looks like dirt, but it's horse poo!

Piles and piles of it.

The guy's worked so hard all weekend. Next weekend will be filled with more yard work again. Next weekend Dean and Tony are going halvers on a tiller, to till all the manure that they spread out in both yards. In the next few weeks we will be planting some shrubs and flowers, but all the ground work needed to be done first. Our yard needs a ton of work before it looks the way we want it to look. Slowly but surely it will get there.

Zoe is still not feeling well. It's your typical case of your child runs around all day long like they are OK, and then the crash and burn follows. Night time brings the cranky, sick and coughing monster child. I am now holding Zoe as I finish up this post. She is a sad little Dozzers. She keeps telling me, "I'm sad momma". She looks so pathetic. Hopefully tomorrow she will feel better. I really don't want to go to the Dr. tomorrow. I want to take the girls for a stroll at the Marina. We will see how the morning unfolds.

I am going to post a few more photos and then finish up the research on the painting that I am working on for the upcoming auction. I already know what I'm painting for the small canvas, so I figured I would start with the larger canvas first. You know, get the hardest one finished first. Well my little sis just called, so I am going to sign off for now.
