The Week Ahead [Oct. 10th, 2010|10:03 pm]

[Current Mood |awake]

Continue "braid" of POV strands of book, and writing connective tissue.   Casting cold eye on certain scenes, as I need to free up wordage for stuff at the end and missing bits in the middle.   Really, really, really need to get this monster in shape.

Practice music for a) lesson Wednesday afternoon,  and b) great big Durufle rehearsal Wednesday night.  Finish transferring director's marks to score of Durufle (they're up online...) and make sure to know the tricky bits so won't be thrown off by others who don't.

Make banana bread tomorrow, as the bananas are now at the overripe mushy stage.

Make chicken stock (we're out and winter's coming.)   This involves a trip to the big grocery that will take (travel time included) a couple of hours. 

Find another chunk of Mr. Muscle to turn into soup/stew for friends still recovering from flood...they liked the first batch and would like more.  Should deliver that Saturday, which means starting with the frozen meat on Thursday and making the soup on Friday.

Farrier will be here Friday to prune hooves on DramaQueen and BananaFace.  That means I can schedule a vet visit for next week, maybe, but also means I need to do some ground work on those two every day before farrier comes, as they haven't been worked since before Dragon*Con.

I love your animal names. DramaQueen I can see, but Bananaface...? Is he yellow or something?
:P

Bananaface is a palomino gelding...this is my occasional nickname for him, because he has a long, large head (he's half warmblood) and he will droop his muzzle and lower lip. He's a con artist, a sneak, and has a weird sense of humor. He's the older of the two, and quite an amazing animal, though he's still emotionally bonded to his first owner, who died 10 years ago. I am the stepmother. He's one of those horses I hope end up in their owners' afterlives (in this case, in hers, which would make them both happy.)

DramaQueen is a red chestnut QH gelding who is that by personality...I don't think he's got an ounce of humor, but he will pester the other into nipping him and then turn to me with "Did you SEE what he DID???" He's also smart, but in a completely different way and he's got a bully side too, including with people. But when you correct him for (for instance) trying to nip, he puts on this incredibly hurt expression..."WHY? What did I DO?"

They both have other names, of course. These are, as it were, stage names.

Barn names, reference names and registry names rarely match. There was a mare at the farm called "Madam" most of the time (she ruled everything) but referred to as "Dink". I think her 'real' name was "Reflections".

I also completely recognize the attitude of your DramaQueen though the one I'm more familiar with at the moment is feline. The "Who Me? I would never do anything meriting a correction." Actually one of the dogs at the farm is doing that a lot but I think he will grow out of it (8 month old puppy).
