Sedona slept well and was eager to go outside and wander around while we did chores. She refused breakfast again so I took a handful of wet food and offered it to her. She looked at me, sighed, and ate a few bites.
Brett and his friend spent the day talking and working on various barn projects. They replaced the filter on the horse pond and shivered in the brittle cold. I warmed up the leftover turkey soup for lunch. I put a couple ladle fulls in a bowl and let it cool, and then offered it to Sedona. She happily slurped it down. YES!!! Camille gave both dogs a milkbone mid-afternoon and she ate that as well.
I offered her more turkey rice soup for dinner but she wasn't interested. If she isn't eating tomorrow, I'll put a call in to the vet. At least she's drinking - and she seems normal otherwise.
Tonight I made Brett's birthday dinner. Camille is up for the weekend and Brett's best friend is visiting so it was a nice celebration. I attempted a new recipe for whole wheat sourdough bread.
Unfortunately, it was a total fail. It never rose and the dough seemed awfully wet. The recipe said not to add more flour but I think the measurements were off. I ended up with a cooked brick.
The chickens will enjoy it tomorrow.
Brett requested BBQ ribs, scalloped potatoes, and carrots for his dinner.
Brett's been enjoying his visit with his friend Richard. They were roommates in college and love telling me stories about each other. I can easily imagine them at 80 years old, sitting on a bench in front of the hardware store, talking about the good old days. I envy their friendship. I have friends but do not have the consistent close friendship these two have shared. Good guys, good friends.
