Traveler and Other Blessings

Friday, Nov 23

Traveler’s ETA is sometime this weekend. I’m sure looking forward to his arrival, though there will be the usual jockeying for position in the herd. Coco, the head mare, likes to make it known that she’s in charge! You’d think, watching those old movies and TV shows, that the resident stallion runs the show–or at least a gelding. Not so in the horse world. It’s the oldest mare, for sure.

The staff house has walls! It’s wonderful to see a dream coming true. At the beginning of 2007, the barn and staff house were both visions, dreams. Now, they’re real. It’s amazing, really.

I plan to write today–I’m really into my new story, as I told you yesterday.

Thanksgiving was wonderful–low key. Regular dishes, easy clean up, good company. I roasted a turkey and mashed potatoes, but I confess the stuffing was Stove Top. And it was delicious!

Today’s journal theme was learning to say no to myself. I’ve gotten awfully permissive lately. No, I’m not going to turn negative, but I figure it’s about time I grew up.

A little.

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy those leftovers. If you’re like me, you like them better than the actual meal.

You’ll notice I’m not out braving the stores on what is purported to be the biggest sale day of the year. There, you see? I’ve got a NO under my belt already, and I haven’t even had breakfast yet!
