  • The last few weeks have been so loverly.
  • I've been getting out of the house a lot lately, which has done wonders for my outlook on life.   It's amazing what getting out of the house and having some fun will do!
  • Frankly, I was definitely starting to feel trapped, and all of the rain didn't help. 
  • I feel great now, especially since I rode Bob today=)
  • I finally got "Tangled" from the library and watched it.
A German movie poster - too cool - apparently it was called "Rapunzel" over there.
  • To be honest, I've never been into the Disney princess thing, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie.
  • But after hearing glowing reports all over the blogosphere, I figured I'd give it a try.
  • And verdict is...
  • I LOVE it!
  • Enough to have watched it 2 times already;)
Rapunzel was so cute, especially with her trusty frying pan - "Frying pans - who knew!" 
Flynn/Eugene...well, he may be animated, but I'm so totally in love;)  And is it just me, or does he have certain similarities to Errol Flynn, including the name "Flynn"? Umhm, I think so;)
Pascal was awesomely hilarious and had me rolling on the floor laughing uncontrollably every time he was onscreen.  Gotta love the little green guy:)
  • The animation is breathtaking - especially the hair!  I'm still amazed by the hair.
  • The humor was delightfully and truly funny - nothing vulgar or crude.  Totally family friendly.
  • Even my dad and brother like it - my dad says it's on our "to buy next" list.
  • I think I can say without hesitation that this is the ultimate movie to watch when I'm considering cutting my hair short. ;)
  • Speaking of that, there was one things that I didn't like.  It seriously freaked me out when Eugene cut Rapunzel's hair off.  I mean, doesn't that mean it will never grow back?!?!  Couldn't he have left it a little longer, just for me?  Huh?  Maybe?!
  • I'm okay.
  • Switching gears...
  • The test results on my sheep's abscesses came back and they do NOT have some strange, nefarious disease. Praise the Lord! =D
  • For some random reason they just have abscesses which, according to the vet, will clear up and heal on their own with no help from me.
  • I like abscesses that clear up on their own for a change. *grin*
  • After much thought, I decided to switch the horses to the lower sheep pasture and the sheep to the horse pasture for a while.
  • I have several very good reasons for doing that - 1) sheep and horses do not share the same parasites, and 2) the horse pasture is being taken over by daisies.
  • A field of daisies may be pretty, but around here daisies = weeds.
  • Speaking of weeds, I spent some time this evening pulling thistles in the lower pasture.  Not even Calvin will eat those, unfortunately.  But it was a beautiful evening, so I didn't mind...much.
  • The homeschool graduation is this Saturday.  We'll definitely be there - we've received 4 invitations, so we'd better be, right? ;)
  • Well, it's getting late, so Happy Trails, y'all!
P.S. This totally cracked me up.  Enjoy...;)
