Random 5 Friday

What has helped me to get through the outrageous winter we have had (so far).

1. Waking up to a beautiful sunrise.

2.  Knowing that I will do everything I can to keep the ponies well fed and comfortable, regardless of the temperature....


 not to mention all the extra shoveling (if only I could really shovel my butt off).

3.  Comfort Food tastes so good when I come in from the barn at night.

4.  Having friends over for dinner.....
(lots of friends!!!!), is my favorite form of entertainment and is always a real upper.

5.  Spending Saturday afternoons drumming....good for the soul and something very different from the everyday routine.

 Having a fire going every day makes it all much better.
