My Weekly Smile; June 3, 2021 – Very Busy days!

Welcome to my weekly smile and I don’t know about you but I can’t believe it is June! The weeks are just flying by and I have been incredibly busy. I am in between crochet craft projects and to help me destress I enjoy coloring. I now have 3 coloring books and the newest one is this horsey one, and it is so much fun to color. I just had to take a photo to share! I want to start another baby blanket which I think I will go purchase the yarn I need this coming weekend. Then I will put the coloring to the side but in the meantime, I need something to do to relax and for some reason creating things whether it’s coloring or crocheting gets my mind off of any stress even if that’s just being busy. It’s just the way I am wired I guess. I think many people do projects to focus on things to help their brain, right? Right!

I will start out my smiles this week with coming home Monday from last weekend after spending time with my daughter and helping her pack up her apartment. She found the cutest house to lease and it is just the perfect size! I am SO EXCITED for her and this move. It will be more room, with a garage and 2 big bedrooms with them each having their own full bathrooms. I can’t wait to visit in about a month to stay in her house instead of her apartment! YAY! Here are a few photos of the weekend. πŸ˜€

Oh the darn sun was glaring in but I had to share the photo anyways of Evie. She is one of the friendliest cats I’ve met which is so fun when I get there to visit. She is not afraid at all and will sleep on my lap too. Such a joy for us and especially my daughter. I am so happy she has Evie and she has her guinea pigs too! We got so much done and I was so happy to be there to help. She scheduled the movers this coming weekend and we had a lot to pack up and so she is in a great place for the move. YAY! I’m Smiling! πŸ˜€

I wanted to share that the horses are settling in as I had to move Miss Chloe out into the paddocks but she has lived in these paddocks for many years. She doesn’t care what stall she is in as they are all similar and she actually likes how big these stalls are and does well in them. I am happy this all went smoothly and Murphy is settling in to his new barn stall with the run (Chloe’s old stall) and he is doing well there. He will remain in this stall, this is his new home. My bestie girlfriend took care of the horses when I was up helping my daughter pack and I’ll share a photo she took of Murph. I am blessed to have the best horsey friends and we help each other out and exchange this help when we travel. πŸ˜€

I will end my smile post with a trail ride I went on today. It is definitely warming up as we get closer to summer here and as I was riding along the jacaranda trees are blooming! Oh my, they are so beautiful and the purple flowers are along the trails which I realize can be a bit messy, but oh so beautiful non the less. Here is my trail ride;

A short video of my trail ride today!

What a perfect picture with her looking up and across the street right near the beautiful jacaranda tree! I took this opportunity to snap this photo and then after I made the video. She just kept on walking after she looked and listened! She is very smart and realized there was no threat. I let her look from time to time, and of course I had to take this photo so she got to stand there a little longer than normal. What a good girl, such a great trail ride today! It was short but PERFECT! πŸ˜€

Thank you for visiting my smile post this week. I am hoping things settle down a bit for me as I feel like I am always on the run. My new horse Murphy is doing good but is on lay up as he has a splint bone injury on his back leg. I think I mentioned this before but can’t remember and I have made an appointment for June 14th for my vet to come and x-ray if needed. He does not limp, it’s on the outside hind leg but I want it to heal completely before I start working him. In Oklahoma x-rays were taken and even sent to a surgeon there who said it will heal but he needs 30 day lay up. I have been doing hand walks only and getting him use to the stables and the grooming area. He has been a champ and been really good walking all around the property. I am hoping to take more photos of Murph, as I get so caught up in walking and grooming him I forget about the photos!

Busy Smiling Cowgirl,

  2. The coloring looks good. Cool that your daughter found a house to lease. Of course cats and boxes… Alexander is also very friendly and has actually warmed up to the dogs, or at least knows that he can be close to them without them eating him πŸ˜‰ Glad you got your ride in. Have a great rest of the week and weekend!

    1. Thank you so much for visiting and yes, it’s so relaxing coloring and crafting! I know you enjoy puzzles too which if I didn’t have the kitty cats I would enjoy also! I think they would play and push most of the puzzle pieces on the floor! πŸ˜†

    1. Thank you so much Anne! They are such beautiful trees and I can see flourish in warm areas. It was fun to share with Miss Chloe!!

      I can’t wait to take more photos of Murphy. I also still can’t believe he’s here sometimes, but every day he is a little better than the day before so he’s smart and figuring out the routine. He’s not mean actually very sweet but so darn big and so young he just needs reminders with manners. ❀️🐴 He’s so easy going I feel so fortunate and can’t wait to ride him!!

  4. I know right! it’s the projects that keep us sane. I hope your busyness has settled a bit for you. Purple Jacaranda colour is Chloe’s colour suits her perfectly. There is a town about 3hrs from us(I’ve blanked on the name) lol. Before covid had a yearly Jacaranda festival as the town is lined with the beautiful trees & everyone dresses in purple Chloe would fit in perfectly. Congratulations to your daughter moving is always jumble of emotions. I hope it all goes smoothly for her & the fam. Love Murphy he seems like such a chill dude, he is a stunning horse. Pats & hugs to everyone. GRAFTON Mum had the name of the town in her head lol Grafton has jacaranda festival. Hope your having a wonderful weekend my pony friend. xo

    1. Thank you! She absolutely loves her new house she is leasing and is settling in too. It’s a bit bigger than the 2 bedroom apartment which was on the 3rd floor. There were elevators, but a house is just so much better and more homey!! ❀️
