Taking it In and Savoring Every Moment

How is your weekend so far?  I hope you’ll have some time today to sit for a while with your cup of coffee and truly relax.  What’s that, you say?  I know what you mean.  I realized the other day that very rarely do we actually enjoy NOW.  Not planning what you need to do, or thinking of what you should have done or dreading an upcoming deadline.  Just taking in the moment.

I keep one of my horses at the neighbors house to be a buddy for her horse.  We have a nice arrangement because when one of us goes out of town, the other can care for the horses.  I went up early this morning and let them out to the big pasture.  Tonight, when I got there all I did was call them and they came running all the way from the field right to me.  I took a video (or thought I did) but when I checked it tonight it was 1 second long.  hmm I need to work on that.



While I was there,  the girls thought I was there to see them.

As you can see, Ryan the horse reminded me that I needed to do my job and feed him!

This girl seemed quite perturbed.



Back home, I fixed more snack food.  I cannot get enough.
