One Tired Grandpuppy

After hours of romping and playing with Mandy and Buddy, Dixie collapsed in the kitchen doorway.  Would you believe she didn't want to go home when Arick called her to the car?  She ran from him!  Just like a spoiled grandchild.

Cliff, Arick and Michelle enjoyed getting rid of all the ammo on the place.  Then Kevin and Rachel came by, with some of Kevin's visiting relatives. 

I spent an hour at the cabin, reading a little and just relaxing, looking up at the sky.  In spite of the insistent mosquitoes, my soul is restored there.  I've learned to keep the repellent at hand and re-apply it every few minutes.  I heard two Barred Owls calling back and forth, which I thought was unusual in broad daylight.  They kept up their conversation for a good ten minutes.

I'll be delighted when I can ride again.  Blue had that awful limp and seemed to get over it, until I rode him a couple of times.  The limp returned.  My theory is that I didn't give him enough time for the sprain to heal.  So this time I was patient, and had plans to ride this very weekend... but alas, he lost a shoe.  It's been too hot anyhow.  The farrier will be here Friday, and hopefully I'll be on the road again Saturday.

It's been another good day.

Oh, Mosie, how could it not be a good day living where you do?  I know, I know, we all take for granted where we live (meaning ME not you), but everytime you show pictures of your home, and your family, your animals, your land... I just get a lump in my throat because it's all so beautiful.  Makes me homesick for West Virginia and PA,  and all the green rolling hills, mountains and farmland.  
How could you not feel blessed and happy, to sit back and look up at a blue sky like that??  Beautiful!
Thank you so much for sharing your pictures.  I never get tired of looking at them!

You live in the country and that is great but I have decided that we (the rest of us) should take a clue from yu and just learn to appreciate the little things about our lives.  I have found that you appreciate the small things and in that you are blessed.  And you bless us by sharing your family and your life.
