Things that make me say Yay!

  1. Mr. S has the week off due to his crazy-long hours the past few weeks, and it doesn't count as vacation time, YAY!
  2. Which means he'll be around this week to help me do honey-do chores, YAY!
  3. And maybe take me to lunch, YAY!
  4. I'm going to see the BFF this weekend and go ride her newest horse, Caroline, who apparently is "full of beans," YAY!
  5. I get to help design a garden for her new ranch in FLAHrida, YAY!
  6. Trip! YAYAYAYAYAY!!
  7. It's going to be 72 degrees today, YAY!
  8. chrisleeoctaves has a post about kinks, which means easy clicking for fics that are naw-TAY, aw-yeah, I mean, YAY! (which means you need to go link up your kinkiest fics, AHEM)
  9. A whole new week with no mistakes in it, YAY!!

Here's a pic of Caroline, the rescued SPCA horsey, after gaining some weight - she was underweight from "trough competition":

This is Doc's girlfriend. Doc is 26 long in the toof - even though he has hardly any left, and a Moste Sociabel Hors. He was lonely, so Chrissy (BFF) got him a girlfriend. Awww. They snorgle and walk together in the sunset, holding hooves and whicker at one another. BEEP! Apparently, she's not a good candidate for bareback - she's a former barrel racer, so she wants to HAUL ASS, so I'm going to have to get use to saddle riding again. I expect to come back Sunday night tea-legged tow-legged bow-legged Milligan. Or I could ride the old grandpa pony... OR BOTH. I'm so happy!! I've missed ol' Doc. He took my boy on his first horse-ride when The Boy was four months old. Heee!

Speaking of horses, Sally needs a' walkin'. She's full of beans today, too. *loves and squishes everyone EVER*

[ETA]: My Not-So Secret Boyfriend Will Ferrell on the Oscars last night. I LOVE HIS FLOOF. YAY!

Jesus, that's after she's gained weight? God. She needs at least another stone; her fetlocks are too skinny and I can still see her ribs!

It all sounds very lovely, love :)

This is about... a month and change old? So she's put on a bit more weight, too. She's a small miss, so she won't gain too much more - about another 50 - 70 pounds is her max at this point.

She's in a GREAT place with an owner who will care for her, now. YAY SPCA! And Chrissy! I can't wait to meet her...

I love hearing about happy ending stories like this. My friend recently rescued a thoroughbred mare (from a herd seized by the SPCA). The SPCA thought she was about 7, but the Vet says she's older. Sweetest horse ever; I wish my quarter horse had her personality!

Oh, that's so great! (What a beauty, too!) Caroline is apparently very loving and friendly, and always wants to run, so Chrissy's working with her on trotting, as Doc's getting up in years and can't quite make the long haul rides anymore.

I've sent your pics to my friend - she's a sucker for pretty faces. :D

Hearing stories about rescues like this makes me very happy. I wrote a little story about Kyra's rescue here. Your friend and mine did a wonderful thing!

I get to help design a garden for her new ranch in FLAHrida, YAY!

OMG - does this mean you'll be visiting her ranch in Flah-rida, dahling?
Feb. 26th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC)
YES YES YES!! She lives just West of Tallahassee - their property borders on the National Forest out there!

Feb. 26th, 2007 04:14 pm (UTC)
Alas, Tallahassee is a ways away from us, but still - much closer than Texas! We will figure out a way to hang out, oh yes. ::evil grin::
Feb. 26th, 2007 04:15 pm (UTC)
Trust me, I'm looking in to it. A way to hang with the Alphas? I'd LOVE it! :D
Feb. 28th, 2007 03:40 am (UTC)


And then you can see me WITHOUT brain damage/head injury. Heh.
Feb. 28th, 2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
HEEEE!! We are planning a road trip out there in late April and again in July...

Believe me - my family knows there's a day that will be dedicated to the Alphas. :D

All of Chrissy's pets have been rescued - she's the original Ellie Mae. (Except for how she was born after Beverly Hillbillies aired, but you take my meaning *g*)

I hope to take a bunch of pictures! Doc is a funny guy - he's losing his teeth (common with his age) so his tongue lolls out of one side, giving him a constant goofy expression. HEEEEEE!

SNOW? Oh, man, am I ever ready for Spring. My peach and pear trees have little fuzzy buds on them... CAN'T WAIT.
Feb. 26th, 2007 05:04 pm (UTC)
YAY for Mr. S being home in all this gorgeous weather! It's wonderfully sunny here in Austin *dons ball cap for long walk in the sunshine*! I tried to talk Mr. B into squiring me about today, but he has stupid Puritan work ethic and went in...
Feb. 26th, 2007 05:28 pm (UTC)
Isn't this weather fantastic?? Especially after the horrendous dust storm we had up in DFW this weekend. We couldn't see across the street, it was so bad! Yipes.

I'm so happy he's home all week, HURRAH!!

My Not-So Secret Boyfriend Will Ferrell on the Oscars last night. I LOVE HIS FLOOF. YAY!

Stoney, I am not ashamed to say: I watched this and it made me want to FUCK WILL FERRELL UNTIL I'M TEA-LEGGED, TOW-LEGGED, BOW-LEGGED AND RAW.
Feb. 26th, 2007 06:41 pm (UTC)
LOOK AT THE MAN'S HANDS. Long and beautiful and can reach that spot. YEAH. I said it. I meant it. I'm here to represent it.

My husband and I have an agreement: I get to have an affair with Will, and he can have one with Helen Mirren. It's a win-win.

Cute horse!
Feb. 27th, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
There'll be a full report on her personality, etc. upon my return trip! :)
Feb. 27th, 2007 01:45 am (UTC)
oh thats a beautiful horse. its wonderful of your friend to adopt her from the SPCA. I watch the animal cops shows all the time on the Animal Planet and its awful to see how so many animals are mistreated. And to see the stories that have happy endings for the horses.
Feb. 27th, 2007 01:10 pm (UTC)
Isn't she lovely? Isn't she won-der-ful? (I watch those shows too, but only if they say there's a happy ending, otherwise it hurts my heart too much.)

I can't wait to see her this weekend!
Feb. 27th, 2007 05:16 pm (UTC)
Aww, pretty red horsey! That's awesome. Glad she had a nice home, now.

And I'm glad you're so happy. (and kinky)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
