Weekend Coffee Share; Keeping Busy!

Weekend Coffee share is a time for us to take a break out of our busy lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new). Please grab a cup of coffee or tea and share with us!

This last weekend came and went like a whirlwind for me and I so wanted to participate in the Weekend Coffee Share and decided to call this the weekend wrap up. At this point it may be a little late to offer you coffee and for me it is lunch here. Can I get you some Ice Tea? or maybe some lemonade? I am a tea drinker and prefer tea over lemonade, or maybe we can mix it and make it an Arnold Palmer!! I ate breakfast so it will have to be lunch, sandwich with potato salad for me, can I make you the same? Sounds yummy. πŸ˜€

I wanted to share some photos as I always do and I also am going to just go through my weekend and the fun I had as you know I am always mixing it up with my crafting and horse back riding. The first photo is of a project I am working on for my sister. I am thinking of making a bunch of these as gifts as they stitch together easily and I am so happy I finished one! On to the second one, after I tie up and stitch in the ends! They come in a pair! SO FUN! πŸ˜€

Finger-less mittens. I know it’s Spring now, but they will come in handy this next winter!

I also finished another baby blanket for my nephew and his wife. Their baby is due in May. Here is a photo, look familiar? I made the same one for my grandson, only I chose a different blue so no two are alike, that’s how I roll! I have to personalize them. This baby blanket stitches up fast. So fast I may make more in different colors and sell them at the local craft fair!

I used a baby blue for baby Teddy (my grandson). I Love this too! Lots of boys this year adding to the family tree!

I stitch at home in the afternoons before I have to sleep. Since I work night shift I need to have some down time so I crochet while I watch some TV. Usually I am watching recorded cooking shows, I am really into them and like the competition shows the best. I feel like an old lady saying that, but oh well, I’m probably an old lady! HAHA! I watch other shows too…. some news but that gets old after awhile and there’s other recorded drama shows my hubby and I watch together. Holy smokes, how did I get on that subject! So silly. On to my weekend, and I really wanted to share a few photos from my trail ride. πŸ˜€

My best friend on Gracie, the chestnut and I am riding Miss Chloe and ponying Zack!

We were heading back to the barn when another best friend was heading out and saw us and stopped and took a couple of photos of us coming in and I am so thankful for these photos as I am terrible about asking someone to take them of me riding! AND we have our masks on too, so it will be our photos to look back on during a pandemic! CRAZY DAYS! Our friends at the stables call each other pony sister’s, so Thank You Jane, my pony sister for these wonderful photos. ❀

Zack looks like he’s thinking, are we done now? We went for a longer ride so I think he is tired!
I gave Chloe a bath after my ride this weekend! She is SO SWEET!!

After our ride I cleaned up Zack and put him away and then gave Miss Chloe a bath. I really need to give Zack a bath and am waiting until it warms up this week. By Thursday it will be in the 90’s (32 Celsius) so I will give him a bath then as he takes longer to dry. His coat isn’t as short as Chloe’s and I would like it to be nice and warm for him since he is a bit older.

As I wrap this up I have all these thoughts running through my head. I usually try hard to write my blog with a theme, whether it be my horses, or my family or sometimes just my crafting. I think I’ve mixed my crafting and horses often as I do take the most photos of these two things. I am finding that my mind is kind of all over the place, probably because our every day lives are a bit tenuous, and that is probably an understatement. I want to stay positive and keep this post about the weekend, I think you all won’t mind. πŸ˜€

Aren’t they just ADORABLE! ❀ ❀ ❀

These two brothers are just amazing to me. How can you not say – AWWW! Sending my hugs like these two kitties, from my house to yours!

Happy thoughts, Happy Loving Cowgirl,

~Diana

  2. The fingerless mitten is a beauty as well as all of your work. Is it really supposed to be in the nineties? I am glad that California had some rain.. Enjoy the rest of your week..Chicken pot pie sounds really good.

  3. Those two cats are divine! I enjoyed this post as it covers many aspects of your life. I love the photos of you both riding in your masks and you ponying Zack. I might be able to pony another horse with Biasini but it would have to be a horse he liked. And Arnold Palmers! I LOVE THEM. I always get them in Florida. Stay well Diana!

    1. Awe, those kitties are a treasure!! And thank you for enjoying Arnold Palmer’s with me today! Yes, it has to be a horse they like that’s for sure and am glad they enjoy each other’s company so I can pony. I was so afraid to be out on the streets with them like this but it’s worked out GREAT! Many folks pony horses around here and so I told myself, you can do this too!! I’m glad I finally have a photo that captures us together!! Take care dear friend and I hope you will be able to get to the barn soon!! Praying for a lift in restrictions soon! 🀠❀️

  4. The fingerless mittens look like a definite hit!!!
    For us winter is coming
    Temperatures getting cooler…. But what i also really think is an awesome idea is like a blanket but with sleeves so you can use your phone or read a book with your hands remaining cosy lol

  5. This was such a nice post. I enjoyed seeing the riding photos. I don’t have many photos at all of me riding, even though that is something I’ve been doing for close to 40 years. So I know what you mean. LOL. I spend less time on my blog now, as I am usually away from home 12 hours/day during the week. I do so love the weekend coffee share, getting together with my friends πŸ™‚ Thank you for your friendship. ❀
