a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

I Worked...

My walk from Sunday was not just for pleasure. 

I began in the barn...shoveling that wonderful black gold for the garden called horse manure.  I restacked several rolls of Goucho wire.  I never touch Goucho without bleeding but they are all safely stacked to the side instead of in the barn isle where hubby so thoughtfully left them.

I stacked my square bales in a stall because they had been unloaded on top of the Goucho in the dark one night.  Raked the loose hay and fed a bale since the horses had heard me and returned to the barn.

I am on a roll!  Getting some work done!  Who is this lady in my body???  I surely don't know but she is almost like I used to be.

This is before my walk so I do not know where the energy came from but I sure hope it stays.
Squiggy and Seymour are busy at the barn hunting for moles.
Yoda was with me every step of the way.
Gentry, Maggie and Lil enjoyed our outing.

I would say this day was just what the doctor ordered.

I know what you mean! I feel reenergized too. Maybe it's the coming New Year and we all feel hope. I also pray mine sticks around. All I know is I'm going to run with this while I've got it and I've been getting tons of stuff done since we returned from New Jersey. I'm even going to look at some horses to buy. I blame this on one of our fellow bloggers who told me about a horse for sale when I first started writing my series on fear. Now I've got the bug...

Newtons Law, baby! Action~reaction I tell ya. It all started when you rebirthed your morning walks didn't it? I tell ya the more active I am the more I am able to accomplish. There is just something about a little fresh air, sunshine and personally experiencing a sunrise. You go girl!

Have one blessed day filled with may accomplishments. :o)

The more you do the more you are able to do, the less you do the less you are able to do.

Don't ask who she is. Just become her BFF.

There's nothing like sunshine and hard work to rejuvenate a body! I love it. Being outside makes me feel refreshed and alive, too. The best medicine for whatever ails ya I say.

Now, I have a question - what kind of dog is Yoda? Very interesting mixture of something but whatever it is, it's VERY cute!

I think nature has a way of revitalizing us. However you found this burst of energy and peace, I hope it sticks around for awhile.

Little Yoda's face melts my heart.

A lot of work, but sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. The doggies are adorable.

It may seem strange , but I rather like the smell of horse dung. I have often "graded" these smells, with horse's best and hen's worst(followed closely by pig!!)
