Monday, Monday, full of joy

So many things to delight in today!
  • It's not raining (my horse and I have a date to align our spines).
  • There's more hay in the barn. We were down to less than three bales of horse hay (plus the "sheep hay" I was jealously guarding, especially for the ewes). Rick found some OK stuff for sale on Craig's List that we were going to pick up yesterday afternoon, but first, one of his long-time clients needed to have her last, old horse put down. Rick noticed she had hay and offered to buy it from her, so now we have almost two tons of gorgeous second-cutting timothy hay that the horses AND sheep think is candy.

  • A project I've been drooling over for nearly a year is finally on the needles, a Valentine's gift to myself. The pattern, the yarn, the smooth Addi Turbo needles, the gifted yarn bowl – everything makes this project perfectly delicious.

  • The bluebirds of happiness are checking out the nest box outside our bedroom window. I think I got some worthy photos with Rick's big-boy camera and lens this morning; will share if I can retrieve them.
  • No more troubling raccoon sightings.
That's it for today from . . .

Do you follow Frances Taylor? She loves her horses, sheep, and photography like you do. myshetland.co.uk Her horse and sheep pictures are marvelous to say nothing about the shots of the Shetland Islands.

Sounds like an all-'round very good Monday to me. That "new" hay looks almost as good as the new knitting project you've started!

Yea for hay, a deal which turned out really great.

The new cast on - what a beautiful color! Happy clicking!

Yay for no rain! Can't wait to see what you're working on in that lovely yarn.

I have hay envy. Here on the coast it's really hard to find anything at all, and all I want is cow hay.
