Napping in the Sunshine

Just a picture of Ruby enjoying a bit of a doze in the midday sunshine…

We got a snow storm through last night/this morning.
When Hubby heads out to clear the drive, I’ll see about taking some fresh snowfall pics of the Merry Mares.

Sunshine

I cannot tell you how much I’m loving these longer days.
I mean I could, but words aren’t quite enough, I think, to explain how much the sunshine is a balm for the Spirit.

We call Astrid “Little Red” for a reason…as she sheds out her winter coat, she shines like a copper penny.
Here I was looking to capture the glow of the sun on her emerging blonde streak.

This is what grabbed my attention, and drew me to grab the camera, the other day.
Her mane was gently floating in the breeze while she ate her beet pulp. It looked so pretty, I simply had to capture the image.


After finishing her bucket, she moved over to lick out what was left of Astrid’s pail, which gave me a chance to get this shot.
I can’t wait until Sable is fully shed out, with her golden summer coat and those gorgeous dapples.
I have photographic plans for her. 😉

And, thankfully, she’s a cooperative model and works for food, snuggles and scratches.

 

Restart

Today seems to be one of those days where I need a restart
Trying to get my brain engaged enough to get things done, and brain just ain’t having anything to do with it.

Ruby has the right idea…
A nap in the sunshine oughta help!

Start by doing what’s necessary;
then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing
the impossible.
~ Francis of Assisi

Yeah, a sunshine nap is just what the Spirit needs…

Polish or Polish?

The Daily Post prompt today…
Is it Polish, or polish?
Well now, depends on interpretation, doesn’t it?
And so, one quote from a renowned Polish artist…

“I am obsessed with the process of creation.”
~ Zdzisław Beksiński

And another regarding polishing, or putting a shine, on skills…

You are an uncut gemstone of priceless value.
Cut and polish your potential with knowledge, skills and service, and you will be in great demand throughout your life.
~ Denis Waitley

 

Watered Down

“…I take the corners, slower and steady
This chip on my shoulder, it ain’t so heavy anymore

We still fly like gypsies
Just a little closer to the ground
And we still love our whiskey
But now it’s just a little watered down…”

“…Those old ghosts still chase me
But feels like they’re losing ground
Yeah I’m still crazy
But now I’m just a little watered down…”

~ Trace Adkins
