I remember the eve of 1999. At that time, 2010 seemed sooooooooo far away. Like by then, we'd be living on the moon.
Well, I'd live on the moon. If I could have my horse there with me!
Speaking of my horse. I took off his blanket since things have thawed at the Painted Creek. I also braided the front section of his mane because it is starting to flop over to the other side again. Hasn't done that in over a year.
He's not too keen on having a girly braid. Not that it will stay in beyond a couple days, anyway!
I longed him and mercy me he was full of it! I only had my 14 ft. line and every now and then he'd leap straight up in the air. A kind of convoluted bucking rear. A move any of Santa's reindeer would be proud of. I think being immobile on frozen mud resulted in a wound-up pony. I would not have put small children on his back that day!
After I put him away, I threw him a couple handfuls of some new hay Paint Girl has for her horses. It is less rich in protein, and less expensive than what I am feeding him. He munched it right up. I may switch him to this hay.
On New Year's Eve day, I finally wrapped up the gifts Emmi won on the Alison Hart book giveaway! Emmi, it's on it's way! Thank you for being patient. I loved picking out treasures to send with the book.
Isn't the cowboy boot stamp a kick? I got it at a yard sale last summer.
The package shop I mailed Emmi's gift at had some cards and knick-knacks. I found this card to mail to my friend who was just diagnosed with cancer.
I loved the saying.
This down pink puffer vest was a gift from my parents for Christmas. I actually picked it out for myself. I walked into the Gap and everything was 40% off so it was a super deal.
It is my anthem for 2010. I'm going to stop wearing so much brown, black, and gray. You'd think I was in mourning or something. I need some brightness, some vivid color. 2010- I want to shine like a big pink star!
I hope your New Years Eve celebrations were safe, peaceful celebrations!
