You may have noticed no blog post yesterday...unusual for a Monday.
I was driving home from North Carolina yesterday.
We left on Friday morning for a visit with the only one of our kids
who does not live nearby.
Ryan, Amanda's twin, lives in Charlotte, N. C.
This week is a big birthday week in our family,
and since we would otherwise miss Ryan on his birthday, we decided to drive down
and wish him a Happy Birthday in person.
While there, we paid a visit to our old neighbors from pre-farm days.
They, too, followed their hearts and built their dream farm in the South.
With the house...
on top of the barn (stable)!
And in that barn lives Roelof, a beautiful Friesian horse...
and Cubby, a charming ex-circus pony...
who serves as babysitter.
Cubby, Cub Scout, is just a little taller and longer than our Red...
and every bit as sweet!
Oh, the tales he could tell of his days in the Circus!
I am sure he is much happier spending his days grazing with his barn mate, however!
We had a wonderful weekend...enjoying the warmer temperatures of North Carolina
and the company of family and friends!
But as I always say...it's so good to be home!
PS...Happy March! It's almost Spring!!
