Horse Fun

I am an early riser. There are many reasons for getting up early and I drink in each one; along with my morning's barley green followed by a cup of coffee... no decaf please.... twenty minutes later. This morning, however, I also had to get my girls up and out of the house bright and early. We participated in a 4-H Fun Day sponsored by our Horse Club for county 4-Her's. After last night's storm it was so refreshing to be outside and just as the sun was heating up the late morning, it was time to head for home and a peanut butter sandwich. Rose takes hers with my homemade strawberry jam....it is so good!........ but oh my, Charlotte who states, "I am a picky eater you know", will turn her nose up to real food and will only take hers with store bought jelly.....yucky.My friend gave me some of her cleome plants. I am thrilled to get them because it has been way too long since I have had them in my garden. I love these old-fashioned plants and I look forward to seeing their raggedy beauty in my garden once again.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
