This first picture was taken with my little Canon camera and the next three...the Powershot.
Quite a dramatic start to the day.
It immediately turned to grey, as soon as I got out to the barn.
Picked the pastures after cleaning stalls. The grass is down to nothing....at least it is still green.
Lily was in her Queen's chair again....no Sophie.
Not too productive this afternoon until Jill arrived around 4 and we went riding.
Abbe came along...I wanted to try and pony her (have never done it before). Got on Berlin, grabbed my rope and Abbe let me snap it on her halter, no problem. It worked very well, but the next time I am going to use a shorter rope. The temperature was perfect, classical music was playing and all the horses were terrific. Loved it. What a difference, having someone to ride with.
Jill had chore duty and I went in to start dinner. Gary planted garlic until dark.
Do you remember my posts about a man from Norway who came down the canal in his sailboat? He sent us a card today and is now ready to sail over to Cuba (another leg of his 8 year journey around the world). Loved the card. Ariana left a sweatshirt onboard when we motored down the canal with them, so he mailed it to us....
along with some napkins from Sweden. How sweet was that?
Dinner was a no brainer. Leftover squash/apple soup....
and a salad with pears.
