I grew up in a small town where, if one did not have a horse….well…everyone DID have horses, so that’s a moot point. I spent many, many hours during my childhood and teen years barrel racing, both for fun and in competitions on Friday nights at the “Play Day” rodeo practice in a nearby town. Bet I could still do it today if I had a horse. I miss it! Anyway….my friend, Tommy just sent me this video. Said he thought of me. Ha. ha.
Thanks, Mr. W! 🙂
Day #2 in her new home, and our sweet little honey bee has adjusted beautifully! Beatrix is a live wire and definitely on top of her game! I am already head over heels in love with her….and owe a bucket of love to the person that talked me into getting her. I took B. to Ingrid’s preschool this afternoon and all the children got to meet her. She was shy for the first 30 seconds, then lavished everyone with puppy kisses galore! She loved it there, and was so GOOD!
She is a great little dog. The children loved her and it was so much fun to witness their enthusiasm!

Of course, by the end of the day, she was completely exhausted. She is lying in her bed in front of the fireplace as I write this. Look! She has a little smile on her face. This has been a great day!
I am grateful today. So grateful. We are all smiles around here these days.
There is no reason why environmental scientists and nature conservationists should not dye elephant tusks pink. Let’s not wait for one more killing. Pink tusks say, “NO!” to poachers, “There is no value.” To tourists pink says, “Support wildlife. We are heading for extinction.”
Please share and re-blog so that this practical and inexpensive idea becomes a reality!
Went to bed late last night and got up early this morning to make breakfast/coffee for my husband. We sat outside on the patio in the morning sunshine, although there is still patchy snow on the ground.
He has two offices in the Bay Area and has to spend hours in each of them today. Then, tonight, he will be teaching his class, so won’t be back here to Truckee until very late… close to midnight. I have been sitting here sipping my coffee, listening to mourning doves cooing. Paco, my little chihuahua companion, is snoozing peacefully beside me.
The sun is out in all its glory, and I will be out, too, once I finish my coffee. Can’t wait to hop on a bike and explore this area. When I return, I will try to get caught up with my photo a day and my jewelry class. Really looking forward to those two things.
It is a glorious day and I feel happy and peaceful. I hope you do as well.

Here is a link to a live cam where a giraffe is due to give birth any day now! Very exciting! If you see a black screen, scroll down and click on “giraffe barn” and then scroll back up. When the camera loads, you will be able to see inside her enclosure. She goes in and out.
UPDATE: MAMA GIRAFFE GAVE BIRTH TO A HEALTHY BABY BOY. IT IS FUN TO CHECK IN ON THEM FROM TIME-TO-TIME.
