I just had the best day and wanted to share it with you. First, there was a gorgeous sunrise showing over the mountain and in the valley. How many of you dread your alarm clocks and wish for just a few more minutes’ sleep every morning? It was like that for me in my corporate life but, somehow, it’s changed and the rising sun usually wakes me. Few things are better.
The animal chores were done, as well as some things around the studio, not the least of which was preparing some canvases (I’ll share my process with you later on the blog), so I headed out with Kelee for an afternoon walk. The weather was so great and my ankle nearly healed (the boot “cast” will likely come off tomorrow) so we walked all the way out to Kelee’s old homestead to see the horses. That’s two miles, round trip, and I did it no problem! Yay!
We hadn’t been there since before my accident and the horses were really glad to see us, and we them. The little colt that was born in the spring is such a man now—huge! He’s almost as tall as Davida. I stayed and nuzzled and petted for quite awhile as Kelee made his working dog presence known and dipped in his home acequia. Who cares about a little ice?
