I am enjoying a wonderful cup of coffee with some cookies. I haven’t bought Girl scout cookies in some years and someone at work asked if I would buy some from her niece so I obliged. I forgot how good they are, and with a warm cup of coffee, blissful. Will you join me for a cup of coffee? I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am currently listening and watching it rain and rain and rain. It is one of the wettest winters this year, and for a outdoors person, or more to the point a horse owner, the rain can be difficult to enjoy. I am able to keep my horses dry, the rain keeps us on our toes! As I sit and enjoy the sound of the rain, I also crochet and I thought I’d share what I am working on. It doesn’t look like much yet so I’ll have to post a photo when I am done. 😀
I love to crochet, I also cross-stitch which I haven’t done in a few years. I may have to get back into that but for now I am having fun making crochet projects. This will be a warm beanie or hat. I am almost done crocheting the edge that will fold up around your head for a double thickness. So the next step is to crochet the cap. I love this deep red wine color. As I sit here working on this project, I can see I didn’t complete my last one. It’s a Star Wars figure, almost completed. They are so cute, I have made so many and want to make all the figures in the crochet book I have. I seem to get side tracked, sometimes having multiple projects going at one time. Here is a photo of many I’ve made so far.
Since I am stuck indoors, other than housework (who does housework? I do get help from hubby in this area. I will admit, he spoils me when it comes to housework!) I am either writing this blog, or crocheting my crafts while watching my multitude of cooking shows! So relaxing and helps with stress. We all should do things that helps with the stress in our daily lives, especially for those of us who work full-time. That would be me, and my job as a supervisor has enough stress that I need all the help I can get to de-stress or unwind! Are you enjoying your coffee, or tea? I hope you are having a great weekend. It isn’t all bad staying inside! I wanted to share the outdoors from this morning as I did go to check on the ponies and took some photos to share. ❤
I take so many photos, they just bring me so much joy. I call to them and they always come over to see if I have treats. So as they beg, of course I went and got them some horse cookies. How can you not with these cute faces. It drizzled off and on as they walked around and eventually scratched each others back. I turn them out every day and ride them often. As I am looking at my weather app it says rain every day until Tuesday. That means 3 more days of rain. I remembered driving home from the stables that I have an Aussie waterproof (oiled) rain coat hanging in my garage that has been there for some years. My hubby bought it for me at a yard sale here in town and I tried it on when I got home and it fits great! So I will ride tomorrow in the rain with my Aussie raincoat! Hopefully it will only be drizzling, right now as I look out my window it is pouring, oh dear, so much rain. We need it but I wish it would space itself out not rain every single day, all day long.
SO I finally have rain gear. It’s only a coat but it will keep me dry in all of this rain. I can’t believe how hard it is raining and it hasn’t stopped in hours!! I have some heavy leather protection I bought for my Ariat boots that I wear to the barn. I added another layer this morning to keep them moist and dry. The oil I apply helps repel water. Developed by a firefighter, it has kept my Ariat’s in good condition and with all this rain they are surviving which makes me happy. I am trying to enjoy the weather but as you can see it is a challenge with the horses. I am hoping you are having a great weekend, and are enjoying your coffee with me. I am enjoying your company and I sure do enjoy sharing my crafts, my horses and my weekend with you. ❤ I must say it is getting very green here in Southern California. It will be a beautiful spring, and the mountains abound with green grass, and we will get wild yellow mustard grass which will be beautiful to see in a few weeks. When these storms blow through the local mountains will be snow capped, a beautiful sight to see. I should be grateful for the weather, I think I will get another cup of coffee, how about you?
Crafting, relaxing, raindrops on my head!
