Mini Homestead Happening for 8/3/2009

Posted by Shannon L. Buck on August 3, 2009


I just want to reiterate that I am so happy to have my water back! I cannot tell you how much easier it makes things, especially when cleaning is involved.

I used to have to wash clothes by hand because I couldn’t afford to use the Laundromat. I can still do this, and had to while there was no water, but it is one of least favorite things to do. I love having my washing machine!!!!

Zowie is back from Upward Bound for the rest of the summer. She starts school, her senior year, on September 1st. It is good to have her home now, as we won’t see her that much once she starts school again.

Yesterday, she and I went for a walk. She took some photographs of me. I need a few ‘professional’ profile photographs for my writing sites, and I think that we got a few that will work.

My friend is going through a divorce. Right now she is staying with family who do not want animals at their place. her husband agreed to keep her three cats there until she found her own place. He was neglecting them, and had them living in gross kitty waste surroundings, which (naturally) upset her. He gave her two weeks to get her two cats out. She took all 3 a few days ago, and either he doesn’t care that Peanut Butter was taken as well, or he just hasn’t noticed yet. Oh, well. He wasn’t taking care of them anyway, and it was gross.

So, one friend took Peanut Butter and will keep him, and I agreed to take the other two until she can afford her own place. She is buying their food and litter.

Of course, I already have six cats of my own, and we are living in this trailer, but things are working out just fine.
