Anyway, I couldn't have joined in all the Boxing Day fun, because I had one of those funny country days where things start out one way, and then change course rapidly. Guess if you are 'country minded' you sort of get used to that... So, anyway, here's what happened ~
I started out the day with a lovely phone call to my neighbor, Lorie, and we caught up on all our 'Christmas' and 'neighbor' news. Included in the news was the sad fact that a cat got one of the neighbor's birds. This spurred me into instant action. Now, for most people that is a sad situation; however, in the context of where we live the equation is a bit different. Something like this...
So, I spent my day stringing (untangling and stringing!) wire for my electric fence. Needless to say, everyone is all locked up tonight and the fence is all electric - just waiting to zap any unsuspecting kitty who might be eyeing my critters!
And, now, I am going to go recover from all my festivities - hehe - again! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great Boxing Day!
PS Just a side note - this was the first time that I actually got a section of hot wire done without a short somewhere, so I didn't even have to go back and fix it =) woohoo! Rather amazing since it had to be strung a little 'wonkie' in a couple of places =p (no surprise about that, huh?!)
PPSS Um... and this did delay the post that I was really going to do today, so you will get all the news about our fun Christmas celebration tomorrow. We did something really different! Stay tuned for details tomorrow! (ah, unless I have another interesting country detour =p)
