I love a day with no appointments in it! I can write today, really roll, without stopping to do this or do that.
It’s all good!
I’m slow-cooking a roast, and Sadie is off exercising this morning, so Bernicie and the cats and I have the house to ourselves for the moment. Trail Boss Mary Ann has been coming in for several hours every day (she’s dedicated), but her son Derek and grandson Lucas are visiting from Canada, so of course she wants a bit of Grandma Time. Lucas is seriously cute, and so smart. He helps his dad and grampa with the horses and various other ranch chores–not bad for a three-year-old. He enjoys the elevator, which he and his dad call “the magic closet”. And yes, he’s a major fan of Thomas the Train.
On a more somber note, I encourage you to pray for the people of Haiti. You can contribute $10 to the American Red Cross’s rescue effort by texting “Haiti” to 90999, if you’re so inclined. I ended up making a larger contribution to CARE, when I couldn’t get through to the ARC website yesterday.
The tragedy in Haiti breaks my heart. It also underscores how very much most of us have to be grateful for–I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to take one blessing for granted.
For many of you, this will be a holiday weekend. Enjoy–and count your blessings.
