Would you like to have a cup of coffee with me this beautiful morning? Any special Easter Weekend plans? My daughter was supposed to spend this week with her dad. She’s been counting down the days since January, when she last saw him. I had my mind set on spending a lot of time working with my horse. That’s partly why I got a saddle for him last week, to be able to stay super busy, and have lots of things to work with (to keep myself distracted.) It’s never easy leaving my daughter with her dad, but this time it didn’t happen. Instead of spending extra time with my horse, I actually spent less time with him (focusing on distracting my daughter from her disappointment.) I’ve still seen him twice a day every day, but we’ve only repeated familiar things, I didn’t introduce anything new. Ghost (my horse) had lots of turn-out time every day this week, and he appreciated the little break. I took the two sunrise photos at the boarding place, earlier this morning.
Is spring in full bloom in your neck of the woods? It is here! The rain stopped, and we’ve had 75-80 degrees this week. It’s wonderful! Maybe you saw my garden post earlier this week? Where I announced our new place, and future plans.
I am planning on moving Ghost to the new place sometime after April 15. I’m going to do my best to find another horse to be his companion, and that would be a good fit for our family before then. I looked at two this week. They both had potential, but wasn’t the horse. I enjoy the process, but I’m definitely ready to say yes, when I meet the right horse. If it was only me it would be an easy decision, but I am set on finding one that my daughter could enjoy. (I would of said yes to the last horse I looked at yesterday, if I was looking for a horse for me. She would of been fun!) I’d still would like the new horse to be big enough for me, so that I can keep it tuned in, and smooth to ride for my daughter. ..and if her passion for horses would fade, I could still exercise the horse, especially important if the horse is younger. My intention is to offer a forever home, to a horse in need. If occasional guests could enjoy the horse from time to time (read: walk around the property,) it would be a plus, but definitely not necessary. I’m pretty open to breed/age etc, as long as the horse has a sweet disposition, and is suitable for my daughter (within a reasonable future. I don’t mind doing some work to get there.)
How is the coffee? I think I’m going to have another cup. Would you like a refill?
Since I am fortunate enough to unexpectedly have my daughter this Easter, I got to dye some eggs yesterday. It was fun! My daughter still beliefs in the Easter Bunny. She thinks that he comes tomorrow, early, before she wakes up, and deliver special eggs with gifts/candy in. I prepared those eggs this morning. LOL. She’s going to like them. Do you celebrate Easter? Any special Easter traditions in your family? I’m going to bake a big ham tonight, and we’re having a special Easter dinner tomorrow, with lots of fixings, and a Swedish Easter cake.
