Sometimes, you just have to laugh. Although really, this is no laughing matter.
I went to the farm Tuesday after work to ride my gal pal Cheetah and let Lito stand tied for a while. You know, send him back to Kindergarten. Sometimes we all have to take a step or two back before we can move forward, so this is where we are. And I am OK with that.
Hey look, he has not completely forgotten!
It was a luscious and luxurious day. The sun was out in full backed by the big Texas blue sky. The air was soft and comforting as it softly caressed the bare skin on my arms and face. Almost pillow like making my long curly hair flow like the wind through the trees.
Or the grass that hasn’t gotten long enough yet. And really, more realistic would be the wind through the pollen pods. Are they pods? I do not know, but man the pollen this year. Is it me or is it in overdrive production? Almost makes me reconsider a black car. Almost. I am still going to get one.
Anyway, yes, the sun, sky, and breeze. Lovely, take my word for it. Be jealous because you should be. There is no better place. With or without the pollen. It was great.
My original plan was to go on Wednesday, but I just could not wait that long.
Darcy did her normal farm thing while I rode. Or so I thought. Such a naughty, scrappy girl. A lady she is not. Dogs will be dogs I guess.
She really got into something this time. Whatever that something was, which I am sure was what was left of the drippings on the ground of this heritage breed pig we roasted on Saturday (which, I still do not get because that was forever ago),
was good enough to also eat a bunch of dirt and sand. And cause all bodily functions to go awry. Big time.
A day at the vet and big bill later, poor little Doolittle is a little worse for ware. And so am I, but who cares about me.
Here is hoping everything keeps, uh, moving along. Cough. There really is not delicate way to put that.
So Darcy is my work companion at my feet today so I can monitor her.
I just had to look up at the sky, shake my head, and chuckle. Some people say, when it rains, it pours. That may be so and sometimes it sure feels that way, but I am just going to laugh.
Why? Because laughing is better than any other option! Focus on the positive. She is eating, drinking, and resting.
He gives us nothing we can not handle.
Walk in love, dear readers!
