We spent a nice, quiet weekend around home doing a variety of things, without really doing much of anything. That's perfectly clear and understandable, right? It makes sense to me. :)
Saturday afternoon, our dear friend Claudia delivered our very first Bountiful Basket order. I was so happy to see a nice variety of fresh fruits and garden vegetables. Just look at what we got! Cabbage, cauliflower, spaghetti squash, comice pears, mandarine oranges, bananas, apples, spinach, sweet potatoes, an english cucumber, and some grape tomatoes! It was like a Christmas package, and so much fun seeing what was inside the box. And all for just $16.50...what a great deal. Now to get creative and make sure we eat everything up!
Shad ready for his dinner...we've been giving him and Kadie a small flake of alfalfa in the evenings with the rest of their rations, and it certainly has taken them no time at all to expect the special "mint on their pillow", as my hubby refers to it.
My sweet, little old lady who thinks that just because she's retired, she really doesn't have to do anything.
The formerly "Mr. Clean"...I do believe he's been taking lessons from Ladde in how to get the most out of your rolls in the mud. Eagle more often than not these days, sporting some mud of his own. *sigh*
Jackson being a goofy dog. Loudest, most obnoxious bark. ever.
It was a mostly stay at home, quiet and laid back weekend. Perfect for mid-winter, I guess. Saturday night, I did fix a casserole and we drove about an hour away to our AHA riding club meeting. It was good to spend some time visiting with our dear friends and make a few plans for outings with the horses when the days are warmer and longer. It's not really that far away. I sure hope that Eagle and I will be able to participate in a few of the rides we've got planned. We need to create a lot more wonderful memories, my boy and I. I had planned on ride #2 last weekend, but just ran out of time and it didn't happen. It will soon. I'm really looking forward to it!!
We almost had another addition to our little equine family. A client from work is moving to North Carolina, they're leaving one week from today, and she's had no luck at selling/re-homing her two horses. One is older and hasn't been ridden in a few years, but the other one we agreed to take if she wasn't able to find an alternate home for her. She's an 18 year old QH mare, 15 hh, sorrel, named Sugar..."Docs Windy Night", and she's been used for cattle sorting and trail riding mostly. Nicely trained and so sweet, but an alpha mare. I was actually beginning to get a little excited about getting her, but this morning Sheila called me and said that a friend of hers will take her. I had told God that it was up to Him, if it was the right thing for us, we were willing, but if not, let someone else have her. I guess we got our answer. I'm a little disappointed though. Not that we need another horse, I know...but my heart was willing.
Until next time, blessings dear friends!
