next week we are returning to the amish settlement to get her donkey shod. we will get there early and drop the donkey off. then we are free to gallavant across the area and go to amish houses that have things for sale. last time was the end of harvest and mostly i saw a lot of pumpkins and yellow/orange mums. i hope to score some nice cheese and canned pickled delights.
i consider this to be a frugal thing to do because you not only get to experience new places and things, but you get free food to boot! i mean, if i pay for museum admission, they aren't going to give me a pound of honey nut goat cheese and a jar of pickles! and i get to see real live amish people!
tomorrow i am working on her computer for her. it will be simple. she's NEVER emptied her cache or deleted any cookies off her computer since she bought it in 2000! get rid of that crap and she should go along like nobody's business.
for a surprise, i am setting up a gmail account and blog for her! i have to find a template.
will i be getting a horse? i don't know. it costs $30 a month to feed them. i would need a fence and a lean-to built for a stall. maybe when it gets warmer. but i am not much of a horse person. i would just pet it a lot.
maybe i could teach my dog to ride the pony. then maybe i can sell enough admission tickets to buy that smartcar!
