I spent my day off last week, getting the tires rotated on my truck.
Free rotations to keep the warranty on the new tires I bought last summer.
Must be done every 3,000 miles. Or the warranty is voided.
For the price I paid for those tires, the rotations SHOULD be free. Geez! That hurt the bank account!
I don’t like seeing my truck like this. This truck is so big, I worry about it falling off the racks. This isn’t too bad, although if it would fall, it could cause some damage to the hubs or axle.
But when they raise it up to do an oil change, I really worry.
I have lots of black walnuts this year. I’m already thinking of things to make with them. What do you use black walnuts for? They are my favorite nut to eat. But they are so hard to get out of the shells.
A regular nut cracker won’t work. You must have a hammer and a hard surface to crack them.
I was walking around the farm, with camera in hand, when the horses came to greet me. Spirit looks as if she’s thinking, “Whatcha doooin’?”
Normally, she won’t stand still for me to take pictures. But today, she was totally cooperative. Maybe it’s because it was feeding time and she was just being patient in hopes of a carrot or two.
If you look closely, you can see my reflection in her eye.
I don’t get to ride much, but I love these horses. A friend calls them pasture pets. That’s fine with me. Watching them run, buck and jump through the pasture brings a sense of calmness.
They are oblivious to the troubles of the world. No stress. Destined to a life of ease, here on the farm.
Sometimes, when I’m troubled with the problems of my life. I take a walk to calm myself. I may just sit on my thinking rock and shed a few tears.
Usually, in the pasture, where the horses are.
My horse, Bo, is really in tune with me. He walks up, nuzzles me, and just stands there and lets me love on him.
Speaking of calming…
What do you find calming? Animals, children, music, nature….
