‘Til We Meet Again

Here we are, at the end of January.
It’s been an exhausting winter.
Either way too cold, or bouncing up above freezing.
Honestly, I’ve spent the last month being rather unsure what I’m going to find in the pasture every morning…

Y’see, rapid weather changes are hard on horses.
Hard to believe that such large, powerful animals can be so damn delicate, but there it is…rapid weather changes can cause upset tummies in a flash. And, often before we humans know it’s coming.
To counter act that, I make sure everyone has a good pile of hay to munch from, salt blocks within easy reach of the waterer (plus one away from it, in case someone wants to hoard it from the others), and an extra dash of salt in their beet pulp daily.
The idea is, keep things moving in and out on schedule, and hope that’s enough to keep tummies settled and happy.
All 3 are doing well.

And me?

Well, I finally picked up my camera last week.
Between Astrid looking gorgeous in the snow:

Little Red ❤

Beautiful Girl ❤

And the urge to create something to honor my Cookie…
Well, the camera and I got reacquainted.

Take a blanket, halter, crown, Cookie Monster and a bottle of whiskey to the pasture…

Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good lord knows
The reasons why I guess

And this is what I get…

Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don’t make sense
I can’t make it all make sense

And this…

So long my friend, until we meet again
I’ll remember you
And all the times we used to
Sit right here on the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

Until we meet again, my Love.
Never goodbye.
We will be together again.

In the meantime, it’s time to stop the grief from stifling the creativity, and let it flow through and work with the creativity.
That’s the plan, anyways. 😉

So, I think I’m back, friends.
At 11 weeks after Her death, I think I can finally breath enough to continue on without being a sobbing zombie mess.
Can’t guarantee there won’t be tears here and there (of course there will be) but instead of letting that stop me, I’m going to just go with it…
We’ll see what comes from that.

    Oh, this brought a tear to my eye. ~hugs~ I’m not familiar enough with your blog to notice what’s new but sure am glad Annie’s Sparks brought me here. You know, I still miss my beloved cat Luna three and a half years after her passing. But it does get easier, with more laughter from fond recollection than tears. Be well.

    I just followed you so I am new to your blog. Thanks for visiting my site. Is the new thing Little Red the new thing? I see you’re familiar with Chris Stapleton. Does that mean you’re a Country Music fan.

      Welcome, and nice to meet you!!
      The new thing wasn’t Astrid, but the new watermark and name on the photos.
      I’m now doing all my photo work under the name “Cookie’n’Cream Photography”.
      I sure am a country music fan…as well as many other genres. But I grew up on country, and love Chris Stapleton’s voice. 🙂
