The soundtrack from “Oklahoma” is running through my head today–the sky is a brilliant blue, the sun shining fit to draw the flowers right up out of the ground, already blooming. YES. It’s my kind of day.
Today is a writing day, and I’ll be reading galleys over the weekend–that’s the print out of a book just before it goes to press–which must be ready by Monday. (I was a little behind on my deadline, I confess.)
Her Bernicieness is waiting for Jenni to arrive and take her for a visit to the barn. This is a highlight, and she starts barking happily whenever Miss Jenni or Mary Ann even think about coming to work. She had a bath and a haircut yesterday, and looks baffled and cute. I take her on the weekend, and love the chance to visit with the horses if they haven’t already been turned out to enjoy their pasture. They love staying out for twenty-four hours, as they do in good weather, but the stall doors are left open. The old Buckaroo sometimes puts himself away. Traveler and Banjo, the boys, are always up to mischief of some kind, and Mama Coco has work hard to keep them in line. April is a sweetie who never causes a problem of any kind, and Skye, a beautiful Appaloosa, is the vain one.
In the art department, I’m on a watercolor kick. Having lots of fun splashing all those colors onto artist trading cards and the pages of my two art journals.
Here’s hoping you’ll have a wonderful, restorative weekend.
Be happy, be well, and be kind. So many people just need a smile or a kind word to get them through.
