  Taa Daaaaa!  Sunrise....time to get up.
 Finished chores by 8:30.  Much warmer today (high of 79).
 Looks like I spent a lot of time looking up....

Chorus at 10.  We did very well.
 Jill (Belle's owner) invited us over for lunch today.
 She has a perfect little patio off her kitchen and we ate outside.
 What a beautiful casserole....broccoli, tomatoes, cottage cheese and bisquick.
 She called these soured green beans....delish.
 And corn on the cob.  We are both into vegetarian meals and this was a keeper.
Sweet Casey kept us company.  He seemed very comfortable in his new home.  (They moved here from a farm...that's how Belle ended up here).

Ralph made an apple pie!  Very impressive....do you think I remembered to take a picture of it before it was half eaten?  He knows what he's doin'.  Thank you both for a great afternoon!
As we drove home on back roads I could not stop taking sky shots.

 Home by 3 so Gary could continue painting.
We sure don't have many things in bloom around here anymore.  Cosmos and these.
 I ended up taking a nap...
 Phoebe had her tail up today... that was a good sign.
 Gucci was her usual adorable self.
 Looking up again....

 I'm not going out to put the ponies in until 7 so I made a slight effort to produce another non-dinner.
 Eggs, homefries and English Muffins.  Oh well.
 Belle was the only horse that was photogenic tonight.  Hopefully they will get used to this later feeding schedule.  It will get back to normal as it gets darker earlier.
Tonight Harry's Law starts up for the season.  I'm going to give it a look....love Kathy Bates.
Night all.

  2. What a beautiful sunrise. I'm glad you got a nap. Between all the stress you've had, and not feeling well, I bet you are worn out.

    Belle looks like she's filled out.

  6. Wow, you've made me hungry with all those shots of beautiful food!! Mouth-watering!! Sounds like a lovely day, especially the time spent with friends AND a nap!! Who could ask for anything more? :)

  7. Great pictures again and the food looks delicious. I missed Harry's Law, I'll have to remember it for next week. Love her too.

  8. What a sky! We had the same - delicious surprise of a day. Went kayaking! So happy to hear you took a nap!
