There is nothing like the sound of little voices
to bring this farm to life
in an extraordinarily special way.
It's been three months since tiny feet have run free here,
filling the air with laughter.
came to spend a few days on the farm.
And my empty baskets are once again full!
Baskets once filled with conversation and fellowship,
touch and hugs,
have gone unfilled for months.
Oh, I have missed sharing this wonderful place
with those I love so dearly.
I took a few days off from blogging so that I could be 100%
present and immersed in playtime,
and animal love.
It was three days of Grammie Heaven...
The rest of me is exhausted!...
in the best possible way.
Easton ate his weight in garden greens,
while Mackenzie lavished affection on Griz.
We had quite the adventure on Wednesday morning...
rescuing the big ole snapping turtle that had been hanging around the arena,
earlier in the week.
Wednesday morning we found it trying to crawl into my garden, it's head
stuck through the fence, but its shell not budging.
With a very hot day predicted, we thought it best to rescue
this fellow and re-locate him in the creek down the road.
Hubbs got him into a trash can,
and we all transported it down to the creek.
He happily swam into the deep part of the creek.
Operation Turtle Rescue was a pretty big deal...
and one that I am sure will be remembered for a long time!
It's good to be back here in the blogosphere again.
Today is going to be a busy day.
Chloe is having chemotherapy beads implanted in her tumor area.
The rest of the equines are going to have their teeth floated...
at least we will be starting that process today.
I'll be back on Monday to share more about all of that.
Until then... I hope you can find a way to get some of your baskets filled!
Sending love and hugs from the farm....
have a great weekend!
