I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Despite being rather wet, mine wasn't too shabby. I had a great time at my boyfriend's prom, where the rain decided to let up and not soak everyone in their nice attire. I wish I had took my camera to take pics of the decorations- they were top notch! A good deal of the decorations were teal, matching my dress, which was pretty awesome. I think it was the universe's way of saying "sorry" for the huge mismatch that was my dress and Ryan's tux's vest last year (yeah, purple and hot pink do not match, although the fabric swatch that represented the color at the shop was perfect.) Yesterday Ryan came over to just "hang out" at the house and we rode up on the farm a bit with my little sister. One of my cousin's little goats actually let us pet it, which was pretty out of the ordinary. Usually the only friendly one is the big billy, and he rubs (rather vigorously) on everyone like an overgrown housecat. He cracks me up, because instead of virile, robust "baaas!" his bas are so soft and baby-ish. After Ryan went home I went back up on the farm with Dad to check cows and to "help" fix a drainage pipe that had went wonky with all of the rain. By "help" I really mean watch and take pictures; there's not too much I could've done, considering that Dad only took one shovel :D I did find a ton of salamanders, who apparently loved all of the damp weather. I also finally got to see Dad's newest calf by one of the new heifers he bought. Like Marlena, she feels a need to hide it 24/7. We found it curled up in a blackberry thicket and she wouldn't budge, so I petted her and scratched behind her little red ears. It's so nice when they'll hold still!
