Day 28- Home

If you have not noticed by now, I LOVE the outdoors… when I’m at home is no different. I am constantly in either the front yard or backyard watering or trimming the flowers, roses, and fruit trees in the gardens. Here is my little helper that likes to oversee what I am doing. He will follow me around where ever I am;  if I’m in the front he’ll be somewhere around watching me from a safe distance (since heaven forbid he get wet!), then when I go inside to go to the backyard,  there he’ll be, under a tree or sitting back relaxing on one of the lounge chairs just chilling while I work! lol So here’s Moe, on a lazy summer morning.  😉

Day 27- Nature

Last September I took a trip up to Lassen Volcanic National Park with a couple of friends. It was a very speedy trip through Lassen, but one cannot miss how extremely beautiful of a place this is, as it is filled with nature and wildlife galore! Just click on a picture to see it closer up to see what I mean. You will want to take a look at these for sure! I cannot wait to go back and explore the place and take more time to wander around and enjoy mother nature as it was intended. 🙂

Day 26-Silly

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who toilet paper’s the “Adults” tack room at the barn?? What a silly question….. us “kids” do!!! We’re just “Horsing Around” as usual at the barn.  LOL 😉

 

Day 25- Collections

I have quite the collection going of ribbons that I’ve won at horse shows… here are just a few of them from one horse show I rode in that we were “Champion” in our division for the day.  😉

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 24– Toys!

Who doesn’t like toys? I don’t think we ever outgrow toys to some extent. Even as adults, we have certain things we just don’t want to give up! 😉

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s Mary from Along Comes Mary showing me all the Beanies that Jamie from Minnesota Girl in LA had in her car that we all just adored. How can you not adore them? They are sooo freaking cute, come in many different popular characters, and are just the right size as they do not take up much space! I have to admit, I have a ton of these in boxes lying around my house as well from back in the day when they were the thing to have. 😉

Day 23–Need to Get Rid Of….


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ok, so you might think this is silly coming from a girl who loves to spend hours upon endless hours at the barn, a place filled with dust and dirt galore…. but I CANNOT stand DIRT OR MUD!! I can tolerate it, but it does not mean I like it! I hate feeling all grimy and dirty. LOL I am constantly trying to wash off the dirt with the water from the horses waterers at the barn. Or from the hose by the wash racks.  Not to mention how all the dirt and dust flying around the barn (or anywhere else for that mater) makes me sneeze like no other?! Also, when the pups, especially Shiloh here, who LOVES to play in the mud/dirt, gets all nice and dirty like this… you know that’s always a blast to clean up after!!! 😉 So I would just love it if I were able to get rid of all dirt and mud that is floating around, not serving a real purpose other than to just be a nuisance and to make messes!

Day 22- Can’t Live Without

One thing I cannot live without is traveling and exploring this amazing planet with a loved one or with friends. There is nothing better than sharing a new place, trying new foods, exploring a city, making new friends and new memories with family and friends.
