Just stopping by to wish you all a happy weekend! What are you up to?
I have visions of apples and some time in the kitchen. For the first time in weeks, and weeks I have no plans. And, it sounds so nice.

P.S. Thank you Mrs. French for making my day. The feeling is very mutual!

I baked yesterday with blood oranges, yummy little shortbread stars. I am hoping this weekend brings the forecast repeat dust storm so I can go and get some more photos. The light was so amazing when the dust rolled in earlier this week, you would have loved to get your camera out in it. I posted some pics here http://createdbykylie.blogspot.com/2009/09/dust-dust-dust.html I am just a dabbler though I would have loved to see what you could have done with this light.

I love horses, so this photo is certainly a winner in my eyes! This is my first free weekend since early May and I plan to do nothing at all.

DId you know that it is good luck to chant, "Lucky, lucky white horse, one, two three!" every time you see one?

Alicia, I ordered this print for my sister this past Christmas because it looks SO much like our childhood farm and our old grey mare, Misty, and my bay Mustang, Ladd. When my sister unwrapped the print on Christmas morning our entire family fell silent; it was as if we were staring at a photograph taken on our farm five years ago when both beloved animals were still alive.

Some animal people are blessed to have a dog of a lifetime, or in my case a horse of a lifetime, and Laddie was it for me. A truly amazing horse- born into one of the wild herds in Wyoming, rounded up and sold at auction as a yearling, saddle broke and spent thirty years as a ranch wrangle horse in MT, then bought by yours truly for $300 from a rancher, and retired on a lush hay farm in NJ. I'll never have another animal with that much spirit or such intelligence.

So when I just came across your blog and saw this picture my mouth DROPPED to the ground; I have the mini-print you sent me on my bedside table, and my sister's big print hangs in her bedroom. If a single photograph can summon up all the glorious memories of girlhood, sisterhood, and the love we have for our animals, you have captured these things most tangibly in this magical photo. Thank you; I'll cherish it forever.
