Another red sky morning...

that turned grey within an hour or so.  The temperature was still over 50.

Had a great workout at Agape.
Stopped at Central Tractor on the way home and bought the dogs new beds.
They were psyched!
It started to rain and the wind kicked up with temperatures falling.

Boy did I have a great sandwich for lunch.  Whole grain bread, turkey, lettuce, cranberry orange relish and mayo.  Leftover waldorf salad and stuffing.  Perfect.
The sky was ominous when I went out to do evening chores.

Tucked the girls in....

and went back to the house...
to watch another round of "Damages."
Night all.


  1. How funny (but not surprising) that we make the same stuffing. Turkey sandwiches today for us too.

  2. Since I didn't cook I don't have leftovers :(( But I do like "Thanksgiving Dinner" sandwiches!
    Do you have bedding in the stalls, or just rubber mats?

  3. ahhhh, such a lovely post from the start of the day to the end...your photos are always perfect and honest and personal. I really like the horses. thanks for visiting me.

  4. My aunt always brought Waldorf salad for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I never acquired the taste. As a child told mom it looked yukky. What did I know.

  5. Well I am a Ccountry gal.

    Love your horses. My niece owns a horse farm.

    Has now a riding school she is the teacher and Birthdays for children on Sat. people also board the horses with her. Amazing how she gets up so early and still at night is in the barn. She gives 100% to her farm life and never complains.

    All her life since she was high to a grasshopper. Wanted a farm and horses.

    Married the right guy who loved it also.

    Has two children the one gal follows after her Mom and is a winner rider like her mom.Ribbons,trophies .

    So it is nice to see other people have the same passion of Gods country
    Wide open spaces of Farm land and horses.

    Fell in love with your pictures, your dog, cats.

    Beautiful farm and your land and the camera shots of 1,2,3,4

  6. I wonder what you pay for a dog bed in your area. I looked at new ones for my pups and they were $40 for one the same size. I am just going to do a $8 pillow with a pillowcase for now. Either way the girls look very happy with your purchase.

  7. Those early morning pics are lovely. Such a pink sky! The pic of your doggie peeking through the railing is adorable. I love leftover turkey sandwiches with all the trimmings included. Yum.
