What a dreary day. Cold and rainy. Made a mid-day trip to the barn to fill the hay bunk. Girlies don't
like the rain. Allie, Lidia and Maggie have become quite the gang of hoodlums. They can't decide who the leader is, Maggie
yells the loudest (we call her Machine Gun Maggie, cause that's what her voice sounds like), so she thinks she can yell her
way to the top. Lidia is the biggest, she thinks she can pound her way to the top and Allie is the craftiest. Allie
starts something with both girls and then steps back and watches the two of them pound eachother. My money is on Allie.

Let me just say, I'm glad I'm not a boy. At my house there are boy jobs and girl jobs. I know, so much for
women being equal to men. We're not equal we're different. Today the boys get the outside, cold, smelly goat,
shocked on the fence, splinters, sweaty, heavy lifting jobs. Katie is shopping with friends, I'm inside baking bread, making
pretzels, watching the football game, knitting, playing on the computer. I'm glad to be a girl today. I'm glad I have boys
who are willing to do the yucky jobs. I'm glad to have boys who don't want me to help with the yucky jobs. I did notice
they seemed to be laughing and joking around a lot when they came in to sample a pretzel. Maybe they don't mind the boy jobs.
