Step one for the horse-addicted. A new member of the family, Traveler, will be arriving this weekend, God willin’ and the creek don’t rise. (Yes, I’m naming him for Robert E Lee’s intrepid steed, Traveller. Just decided to go with one L. Those Civil War books I’m planning pop up in every area of my life!)
Today, after my writing, I’ll be out in the barn, mucking stalls. With this sore foot, I haven’t been able to get my barn boots on. Because the work I do–writing–is so mental and so sedentary, I need more horse-time, and more barn-time, and more fresh-air time. (Mostly fresh, anyway. It IS a barn, after all.)
Tomorrow when we all sit down to our turkey dinner, and I’ll be giving thanks for a great many blessings. And all my faithful readers are right up there at the top of the list, along with family, freedom, critters, a career I love, good health, and too many other things to list here.
See you tomorrow. If you don’t stop in for the blog, have a happy and bountiful Thanksgiving. In fact, have one even if you do.
My sincere love and gratitude to each and every one of you.
