There will be no knitting content today. We went to the County fair yesterday. I love seeing all the animals. I got to listen to a calf's heartbeat in the Education Barn. My goodness it was so slow. I can't image how slowly a cow's heart beats. I'm coming from my NICU perspective where neonates heart rate at rest can easily be 170s. As humans age their heartrate slows.
Is this true of Bovines?
You know me and the horse fascination. The draft horse judging was so fun. When they clip they CLOP loud. I have some video but don't know how to put it her. So imagine.......that heavenly sound.
The draft horses were not very calm. They are huge. They could do a lot of damage if out of control. These two were not kidding around in the barn. They made the riding ring horses look like ponies.
This beautiful painting won a blue ribbon in the craft barn. I love it. Look at her beautiful wrinkles. Her loving open hands! Is she calling her great grandchild to her?
And finally for Delighted Hands and Nancy; a wonderful dark quilt.
If you want to chime in please do, I have a few questions
*We are new to water softerners, and the water feels so slippery. I dont' want to drink it.
So do any of you use a reverse osmosis machine or do you buy bottled water. ? also I'm having trouble seeing a quote for Hinkley and Schmitt on line without giving them information.
Around how much do you pay?
*Do you really have to change your hummingbird food frequently?
*This house had a convection oven. My mom had one and loved it. Any words of wisdom about that since she cant help me?
We have what I believe is indoor outdoor carpet on the porch. Should I shampoo it?
We ordered a mattress from Tuft and Needle and they deliver the mattress in a rolled up tube. So far it is awesome. No problem getting it to the upstairs. Great feel.
Once you open it, the mattress begins to expand.
Have you heard of this kind of mattress?
Any other words of wisdom for me?
I'm all bloggy ears!
