Sunrise to Sunset - then sick!


Yesterday I saw the sun rise as I walked Maizie to the school bus and then saw the sun set as I ran in the slushy snow at the farm while the horses munched their evening hay in the pastures. 

At midday, I rode this little implet above, sweet Foggy boy. He is always perfect and he was yesterday, demanding to go through the neighborhood. One family banged on their bay window and waved, holding up their cute kitties to us. Another friend opened the gate for me to get back into our farm. Foggy loved all the Christmas decorations in the yards and on mailboxes. What a horse - what a ride!

It was a special day - one I must have lived to the fullest because last night as Maizie and I watched our perennial favorite, Barbie Nutcracker (VHS from the dark ages that we LOVE!), I felt body aches and fever coming on.

I haven't been sick in a long time - forgot how horrid it is! Thank you, Mom, for taking care of the boys for me today!

  5. How great (other than being sick--dreadful!!!) to see a sun rise as well as set. I prefer sunrises even though I'm a quiet morning person and I find sunsets always a little sad...definitely a LIGHT girl :) and every day is closer to more sun!!!!!!!!!!! Feel better, drink lots of fluids and rest rest rest.
