This one is my favorite.
Probably because he has a big spotted hiney like My Boy.
This is the book I'm currently reading. A librarian friend suggested it. This book is geared towards late elementary-aged children. Amazon.com has this write-up which is probably a better description than I could muster: Anyone who fondly remembers how the fresh air of the moors puts a blush in the cheeks of sallow young Mary in "The Secret Garden" will love Dorothy Canfield Fisher's "Understood Betsy" just as much. First published in 1916, this engaging classic tells the tale of a thin, pale 9-year-old orphan named Elizabeth Ann who is whisked away from her city home and relocated to a Vermont farm where her cousins, the "dreaded Putneys," live. The Putneys are not as bad as her doting, high-strung Aunt Frances warns, however, and Elizabeth, who had been nurtured by her aunt like an overwatered sapling--positively blooms under their breezy, earthy care.
Like many novels geared towards young children, I think this one is a story even adults can enjoy.
I looked at my calendar last night and noticed this. I guess I am really hoping for spring?
In my defense, I had the calendar off the wall trying to schedule a farrier appointment in March. Really!
This is my new regular breakfast food. Any guesses as to what it is? It's called quinoa (keen-wah. I just discovered that I have been pronouncing it wrong.) My dad told me about it. The Incas considered it sacred. You can find it in bulk in most health food groceries. It is the seed from some plant and supposedly is full of the 9 essential amino acids, protein, iron, lysine, magnesium, and loads of other great stuff. It is supposed to help with your blood vessel constriction and people who suffer with migraines. I ate it every day a week ago and still got a migraine. But some things are unavoidable. The grain is kind of nutty and crunchy in texture when cooked. I coat mine in brown sugar and milk, like malt-o-meal. Just don't look at it up close once it is cooked, it kind of looks strange.
I ordered this DVD! It is Lonesome Dove, the television series. I guess it aired for two seasons. I was skeptical but the reviews online were good and I am so addicted to these characters I had to give it a go. Seriously, I'm going to name my next pet Woodrow.
This morning I visited the salon and got my hair colored, hallelujah! Nothing brightens your mood then a bit o' blonde in the dead of winter. I mean really, there was a lot of gray around here and it wasn't just the clouds in the sky, people!
Not my salon, just thought this one looked kind of homey! Wait, are those zebra print chairs? What do you know!
Tonight it's drinks with friends and tomorrow I see my horse. So I am a happy camper!
