Spring and Other Things...

 I hear the weather reports and know that much of the country is suffering severe winter storms, but it is hard for us here in balmy California to even imagine it. We've been having 70 degree sunny afternoons and all around are signs of spring -  plum trees, quince and daffodils blooming. Even the guinea pigs are enjoying the fresh green grass to nibble on!
Yesterday we enjoyed a beautiful afternoon out at Jordan and Becky's home. Naomi, my horse girl, got to groom horses, shampoo Hickory's tail and clean out his hooves. I'm so glad she has a sister-in-law to share these activities with her! =D
 Jordan was operating the tractor, leveling and expanding their round pen. Lucas was operating the manual shovel and Grandpa was looking after the little guy to keep him safely away from the equipment.

And at the end of the afternoon, we enjoyed a delicious corned beef dinner that Becky had prepared.

  1. Truly a great day . . . the kids, one 'grand-man,' great food, time in the pasture with the guys! And, a day away from the office!
