|breezy, sunshine and spring-like|
My birthday was a very quiet affair. I spent the day working at the clinic. Went home, built a fire, filled the wood box, lit some candles, fed the dogs and sat by my fire enjoying a glass of wine. When the hubs got home, we went out to the barn to do the chores. It had been a beautiful day filled with gentle breezes and sunshine, and the evening was just as lovely.
The horses came in from pasture filthy. I decided to let them enjoy their grubbiness and skip any grooming, if they want to be covered in mud, who am I to complain? I shot a few pictures but nobody was really cooperating, and seemed only interested in chowing down their evening meal.
There are times when you just have to remind yourself as to the extent of their expertise in covering every square inch of their bodies in mud, you know, in case we forget come summer time.
|pretty dirty for Harley|
|Missy (still in boots)|
|Eagle - grubmonster|
|Kadie - who wouldn't eat with the camera point her way|
|Now she's getting perturbed...|
|Aahh Ladde - what can I say?|
|This is his eye that had the pea-sized lump on the lower lid - all gone!!!|
|Filthy for Shad! He absolutely would not look at me. Alfalfa, you know...priorities|
With the horses all fed and tucked in for the night, we headed inside to get some dinner. Leftovers of spaghetti and hot bread. It tasted good, and I was content with not having to cook. After cleaning up the kitchen, I spent some time schmoozing with Annie, and not to be left out, Ruby too. For my birthday memoirs, hubs took a few pictures of us doing what comes naturally after we're settled in for the evening. I loved the idea. My birthday pictures with my girls. In the years to come, I will treasure them all the more.
|This one makes me laugh, look at Ruby's fat belly. :)|
|I think this is my favorite. My beautiful girl who never takes a bad picture.|
|My Annie. How I love this dog...|
As is his custom, my sweet guy gave me a mushy, lovey-dovey birthday card, and a giant Hershey's bar with almonds. This man knows what makes me happy. :)
All in all, I'd say it was a good day.
