We have a little fresh snow in the landscape. That’s all I got for a photo today. I love how the only disruption of the snow is critter prints. Fireman said he saw at least 4 different kinds of prints in the snow on his way to the mailbox. This has been the foggiest cloudiest January I can recall. So, I turn to my knitting for color and to my friends for a good chat.
I really read your suggestions and I managed to keep pretty quiet at the meeting last night. It was nice to hear others speak up. People are so passionate about animal shelters and care. It is a very emotional place. I think being on the Board requires some level of removing some of the emotion from the table and looking at the direction of the shelter from a more objective place. It has been quite a year on this Board. I have a new appreciation for volunteer boards , that’s for sure.
We got home late after the meeting, visiting mom and early dinner with friends. Snow was falling and I was glad Fireman was driving. Mom is weak and I appreciate your prayers and good wishes. I didn’t shed as many tears this week as last. She is so cute. When she did open her eyes for a bit she waved at Fireman.
On a lighter note, I have to tell you about the barrel races. I loved watching them. I’ll never be a cowgirl, but my friend is thinking of getting a horse, so I can get close. Anyhow, shortly after we arrived at this venue of 60 horse and rider teams, a young girl and her horse were up. They ran the barrels with some wildness on the horses part, but she tried to keep control. At the end of the run, the horse threw her. There was a gasp in the little crowd. This brave young girl, got up and the first thing she said, was “MOM I”M GOOD” . We all laughed and I said to fireman, “are there 3 more important words?”
Sock knitting continues here at the new house.
