Here are a few sights from my weekend just past. Things that made me smile, grin or just sigh with happiness and joy.
These guys. Top to bottom: Faith, Snowball and Spirit. I don't have words to describe what it was like being so close to them. I haven't been near a horse in over 30 years and getting to visit with these three was just heaven. Faith is skittish and didn't seem to like me too much. Snowball was aloof. But Spirit, oh Spirit was my friend. He got so close he was practically hiding me. I hadn't realized at first just how big he was (I was on the up slope of the hill). But when he came up closer and raised his head to his full height. Wow!
He followed me around, letting me pet him, nudging me with his nose. He just was so wonderful! I hope next time I go I might get to ride him. I was too nervous to do it even though my cousin offered.
Then there was this:
She was the biggest reason for the trip. We went to Southwest Virginia to have Thanksgiving with my Cousin and her family and my Uncle. This little nugget of preciousness is my cousin's newest daughter. Oh my word! The sweetest thing. So worth the 6 hour trip. And it was good to see my other young cousins and family.
Now this, I spotted through my back door while pie making the other day. I hope my neighbors weren't looking out their back window as I'm sure they'd think I was being a peeping tom. It took several tries to get a decent shot, although he sat there for the longest time. I turned away for a second and he was gone as if he'd never been.
Sometimes I wish we didn't have televisions and movies, etc. There are so many beautiful things to see in nature that we miss when focused on the other.
Well, I'm off to get ready for a visit from my Sis-in-Law. We are experimenting with a recipe for our Thanksgiving meal desert this afternoon.
I hope those that celebrate have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends; and that those who don't celebrate Thanksgiving have a wonderful day.
