A Lovely Day....

It was a great morning....I took Polly for her walk...then Scout, {our Horse} for his walk....He is skittish...but I'm not afraid of him....tho...I'm always waiting for him to jump...and...hopefully...not on top of me....He's a very powerful horse....around 1500. pounds... I took him around the shop...through the yard....and to the apple trees, where he could clean up the wind falls....When I led him to Chery's Memorial....where I sat on the bench...he must have seen that as his opportunity to escape...He bolted....I.... hung onto the rope... thankfully there is a Crab Apple Tree, at Chery's Memorial site....and he wrapped himself up in it...with me, at one end of the rope...Scout at the other....I was sooo mad at him..and he knew it....I just bought a new headstall, for him...I will be taking him back out...but with a bridle on him....The halter simply doesn't let me keep him under control...He is like a spoiled 12 year old boy....Very Smart...and Extremely Mischievous....
It was a quiet day, in the shop...had a few folks pop in...and a few treasures found their way, to new homes....I got a lot done....cleaning up, some of the latest gatherings...one is, the stemmed glass I am holding...filled with a Peach Daiquiri...this eve...I pulled it out of a box, at the 1.00 per item booth...at What Cheer, Friday...{yes...it has a tiny chip on the base....but it holds the Daiquiri just fine...what else can I ask for?} I have a thing about Old Stemware....I drink my Morning Coffee out of it....especially in the warm months...I like iced coffee... Very few of the Glasses match... I find that interesting...I have nothing in some...and up to 20.00, in others...each....They are Lovely...I took a pair of them filled with ice, and an Ironstone pitcher, filled with water, for a couple of girls that were parched, shopping here, last week....I don't think anything about them...we use them everyday....they thought they were cool... I think everything tastes better, out of an old stemmed glass... that's just me...
Picked up a Load of Gnarly Concrete, yesterday....Love...Love....Love....The Old Swans....They are wonderful, inside, at Christmas Time...Welcoming Folks in the door.... They are lovely with a Dried Sweet Annie Tree... or...just Mounded Full of Old Worn Silver Ornaments.... on a Big Harvest Table!{one can never have too many vintage concrete swans...}
It's been a long day...but...a good one...
Love to Ya...
