Under-employment agrees with me just a tad too much. I spent the holiday season decorating wreaths made by my friend Tom. We customized each for the recipient and the results were, if I do say so myself, stunning. For our friends Mary and George we did this one:
George is my farrier, hence the red horse shoe and Mary is an incredible artist who’s oil paintings of her sheep are some of my favorites.
This past week, my sister and I are working through her “bucket list” before she leaves New England for sunny Arizona. We snow-shoed Saturday and yesterday through the woods around my home looking for “deer sheds”. Apparently when the deep cold hits the blood ceases to reach the antlers of our local bucks and the antlers fall off. We didn’t find any but that didn’t diminish the fun of trekking with my dog Alice.
Sunday we took our cameras out to Mary and George’s farm to shoot a sleigh ride. George loves to hook up his Belgians, Micca and Molly to entertain the throngs that arrive in his door yard. He and Mary make a bonfire and serve up hot cocoa, hot dogs and marshmallows. You never know who you will meet there and the animals are always so happy to see you.
