All I really want….

Is some sleep! It’s been 3 weeks in a row of 5:30 am wake-ups, and my body has just about had it. And since I came “home” from barn-sitting for 11 days, it seems I’ve been out doing things every single night.

I’d show my progress on Quaker Halloween, but I don’t have a clear space or good light to take a picture. I still have to find & start my November ornament. I’m thinking another monochromatic from the JCS mag, but done in a complementary variegated green.

My BO brought her Appaloosa World Champion home for the first time. She’s owned him for two years, but he’s been with the trainer in Washington state all this time. He’s very pretty, for an Appaloosa. (You horsey people know what I mean!) Now she’s thinking of buying another 2-year-old- it got 4 first place ribbons at Worlds. She can squeeze another horse in the barn, but it’s become a logistical nightmare I prefer not to have to handle.

This NaBloPoMo thing is getting intimidating: I feel like I’ve already hit the wall on day 5!

I say..."he/she is a good looking horse in an Appey kind of way"(to anyone BUT the owner) I totally know what you are saying. I see one every day on my way to work that has a tail that's no more than a foot long..he so got ripped off! Not failing to observe it looked like someone threw a bucket of white paint on a bay. :-)

Well, I wasn't going to mention his "tail". Suffice it to say, he has hair extensions for that!And OMG they were offered HIGH 5 figures for this horse!
