Our Weekend

Good Morning from my hood to yours.

How was your weekend? Ours was good, quiet.

This weekend the cold and wet weather that winter is supposed to be was trying hard to make us a visit. It's cold but the rain we were expecting and hoping for unfortunately, was minimal. We are so dry and the worry about fire season is great. The states drought is so bad now that the Governor announced last week that if we don't get significant rain we won't be able to ship water outside our state to others that depend on our help.
We are all in love with Ms. Punkin Pie. Thankfully she enjoys all the attention because we can't stop hugging and kissing her.

This weekend the music man and I enjoyed a nice trail ride. Chancie is feeling better and I tried to pony Punkin with us around the property. It was a total fiasco. She doesn't seem to know how to pony and Chance didn't want any part of it. At one point we were getting tangled so I had to drop her lead rope. Oh boy did she have some fun though.  This little girl can move! She ran around like crazy, stopping for a weed snack just to run some more. She is so cute. It was all good as we were on the property and after a few minutes she simply followed us back to her turn out.  No harm no foul and she seemed to have a blast.

This weekend we spent time with friends, old and new.

We watched the super bowl. What a sad blow out of a game. The music man is originally from Washington state and I am a Charger fan but we both were rooting for Payton Manning, wishing he could obtain the fairy tale ending of his amazing career... Maybe next year that is of course if San Diego isn't there :)
This weekend the sky was spectacular. I love how an incoming storm brings so much texture and drama to an image. I shot this yesterday while out feeding everyone breakfast. It was cold, 22 degrees but the welcome I always get from the animals fills my heart and keeps me warm.  Do you see the sun rays busting out into the blue sky? We call this God's hands and I super love that.

Now if we could just get a bit more rain....Perhaps later this week the weatherman says.

Happy Monday Peeps!


  1. Happy Monday to you! We're hunkering down for a forecasted week of snow and very cold temps. I'm headed out to stock up on some more straw so Doink can make himself a warm nest to get through it :-) Sending hopes of precipitation your way!

  2. We got snow this morning. Completely unexpected as far as the forecast is concerned. No mention of it last night. No complaints here though. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. :)

  3. i do hope more rain is on the way for you! glad you saw a little to give you hope. :)

  4. That is a gorgeous shot of the sky! You take the best sky photos! I really hope you guys get some much needed rain soon. Sounds like it's very bad this year. I love hearing about Punkin and how well she's doing!

  5. Oh I LOVE God's hands. I do hope you get your rain soon. Love the shot of Punkin. Hug B
