Sunday leftovers

 This picture is remarkable only for the fact that I shot it through a window, which happened to be
sparkly clean, which happened because I had the energy to wash all of them, 
which happened because it's so damned easy now to keep the house clean 
because the novelty hasn't worn off the new cordless vacuum cleaner.
Also, the weather for the past 10 days has been deliciously warm and gorgeous.


 Every garden needs a statue.



 Johnny: Just because the windows are clean doesn't mean you can spy on me.



 This hawk may have been staring at his reflection in my sparkling office window.



If it's warm enough in December to wash windows, it's also warm enough to ride.
I spent the better part of my Thanksgiving break riding Lucy...
and giving thanks for every single moment in the saddle. 


I love Lucy. We were meant to be.


 I'll stop for a moment to smile and reflect upon how she came into my life.



How lucky I am that our paths crossed.

  7. I'm pretty sure Lucy feels the same way about you. And I'm glad for you, that you got some good saddle time in December, after all your chores.

  10. I am grateful for the beauty you share. But I am a curious soul. Is that a bunny tail on the ground next to JCC? Having found one of my own, it looks rather familiar.

  11. That's a sweet thing to say about Lucy, I'm sure she feels the same for you and the boys.

  12. You know, there is something about JCC's eyes---you can tell he is smarter than the average cat. Please do not tell our family cat that-she is smart-but doesn't have that observant look in her eyes. Hope you get to go riding with Lucy today!

  18. Everybody should feel that way about their animals. I like to think that most of us do. Husband and I certainly feel as if all of our furbabies have been Meant-To-Be's.
