Horses are good for the soul

Horseback riding really made me feel a lot better yesterday. I have been an ornery girl lately. I needed the love of horses to help me feel better :) For those of you who love horses, you know what I am talking about! We rode for about 3 hours last night. My friend’s horses are very good with little kids. We’ve been riding with them for about 3 years now, and Jessie has been around them since she was 2, so she is not afraid of them one bit. She rode by herself a lot, and trotted around the arena over and over again. She loved it! It was so cute because her legs were already spread so wide on the big horse, and she was kicking her legs as hard as she could to keep the horse trotting.

I started the Little House Needleworks: Stars & Stripes yesterday at work, it should go pretty quickly. I like this little design. :) I’ll show a WIP pic when I get more done.

I just finished reading The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory. It was a really good read. It had quite a bit of scandal and such, which was over dramatic and some of it I did not enjoy… but the story just kept you sucked in. It was a historical novel about King Henry VIII, and his marriage to Anne Boleyn and the tyrant he became, and the tyrant Anne was. All in all a good book. I liked Harry Potter better though LOL!

What great pictures!! We grew up around horses, too, but not ones we could ride. They definately have a calming influence. In Dutch, horses are referred to using some of the same body-part names as humans - the only animal that this is the case, and showing in what high esteem they're held. :)

You look so happy on and near horses. You look like you were made to ride; you look very at home with them. I'm so glad that you were able to rejuvenate your spirit. :)
