Flower child's birthday adventure...

My eldest granddaughter had her 9th birthday on June 17th. Her choice for a party was to go horseback riding with her So we mounted up and rode at a place called Heritage Hills. The trails were narrow through picturesque forest land. This for me was an extreme sport. My horse was a retired dressage named Bart. He responded to my every command. I rode as a kid but it has been years. It all came back to me. My daughter was so surprised at how well I did. I still can't stop smiling. Thank you dear Iris for believing Granny can do anything...Oh, what a day! Thanks to Anna for the photos and Emmy for the moral support and M for the adventure!

A moment to remember on the porch...

I am sitting on my porch on my wicker lounger finishing The Night Circus (after a call from the librarian asking for the book's return). Breezy and sunny and so comfy. A moment to bottle and store on my life shelf. I enjoyed every well written word of this book. Erin Morgenstern, you are such a smart girl. You made me remember how I believed in magic, fairytales and hope in my youthful summers. A quote used in the book from The Tempest-- Prospero's words from Act IV scene I, hit me right in the heart. The picture above is another moment I can still feel. My brothers and sisters and me(bottom row left) in front of our barn "pyramid"
