Have you ever heard the old saying, "if you dream about snakes, you've got enemies"? Well, last night I dreamed that as I walked around the side of our house, there lay the biggest black snake I've ever seen. My neighbor Ann killed the snake by stabbing it to death with a knife. I was sad for the snake. I simply must stop eating chocolate/peanut butter ice cream before bedtime!
I was sitting here wondering what to post today when the phone rang. It was Kristine, calling from from the path. She and Robert had stopped in front of the house to show me their newest horse, and darn it, I can not remember his name. You met Josie, the white horse, in an earlier post.
Yep, that runaway horse gave my entire family something to laugh about for years. There's a post written about that very nightmare called 'horseback riding'. That was the end of my riding horses!
Horses are such beautiful creatures. Kristine talked me into walking up really close to these horses. Close enough even to rub their noses and smell that horse smell. I love the way horses smells, the same way I love puppy breath.
Robert and Kristine live in a neat little place much further down in the woods even than where we live. These are good neighbors.
I was excited about raking leaves again today, and got started around 10:00. Poppy worked at the deer processing plant so when he got home at lunchtime I stood the rake against a tree and we ate lunch together. We were up at 4:30 this morning so I am feeling pretty worn out right now.
I dumped three loads of leaves inside the garden and still have more to add. Oops, somebody closed Eli up inside the garden. I'm mighty tired tonight, but there is absolutely nothing that makes me as happy as working outside.
Okay, it's feeling a whole lot like bedtime right now so I will say goodnight.
And, a special thank you to my newest follower, 'Happyone'. Thank you!
