A Christmas vacation visit.

Every year over my Christmas vacation from work,we get our grandaughter for a few days. This year is especially special to us,as it is the last year in our home here in California. We move this spring to Idaho to live out our dream of having a hobby farm. Don't know how many Christmases we will get to have Autumn at our home for vacation after this. Hope we still get to have many visits still.

Santa actually came to town on a cow. Who said anything about a sleigh or reindeer.  I love my new teapot.

Hand work

My friend Annette and her mom are so talented. The crochete plum pudding is a pattern from France.  And the pillow crossstitch is also made from a special fiber from France. Thank you Annette.

My Love of Horses

Lucious Lucas
Remi and Me
Beautiful Bonnie

Carin with Baby Remi and Mommy. 
Being raised on a ranch in Half Moon Bay, I remember being around horses as long as I can remember.   Earlier I posted some pictures of horses I love that are my neices.  Here are more.  My best day is a day riding with my kids and neice out at the ranch on the coast of California.   She has a trail riding business and has rescued and rehabilitated most of her horses.  She has a Horse rescue Non Profit called Hoof Beats of America... if anyone wants a horse she adopts them out to good homes.  She is Keeping Remi and Bonnie.

Peek a Boo

I could not possibly post all the pictures I have of over 27 horses here on my blog.   These are just a few that I took on a day at my niece's ranch.

My love of Horses.

I love this picture. Young country girl is roping. I dont know who she is, but she reminded me so much of what my little Grandaughter might look like once she got older.   This picture really has nothing to do with my life other that the fact that I love it. When my oldest daughter was young I gave her riding lessons, she loved it, was good at it and is great with horses.  we've always had a connection to horses.  My neice has 27 of them. while Im at it, I will post more pictures of horses that I really have met.
Majectic Gabrielle. He was destined to be dog food but my niece rescued him.   His spirit is huge.  Love him. He was scampering as I was walking up to him with carrots in my hand.  Knew auntie Mary was coming with treats for him. He was fun to ride that day.   

Laugh at me will you?   These horses love carrot treats I tell ya.

A day at the ranch. Rode horses all day on oceanside trials.Two of my kids, Anthony and Carin. 

Winter is fast approaching... so I have been sooooo busy here.

Harvesing the garden and not to mention all the herbs. Tinctures to make, soaps to set to cure...  I do love my life here on this little plo...
