Having my elbow-length hair chopped up to my chin (I love it SO much!); my interview with Emma; going to the movie theater for the first time, and also “Cinderella” (which was everything a fairy-tale should be and more); going to HorseFest with my brother; feeling like Marianne with my truly terrible cold; my birthday; new growing things; cantering, cantering and CANTERING!
My reading these past eight weeks went very sweetly indeed as I read six novels. As of now, however, only three of them have been from my Spring TBR List, as I just haven’t felt like reading the others. I also got some especially great nonfiction books from the library, too, so altogether I have been a very happy bookworm.
They Searched Who Laughed has been going through a bit of a difficult growing period of late (the difficulty is mostly, of course, of my responsibility), however Clarkson and Elise being the totally lovely people they are have been super patient and I am now having the stirrings of Great and Lovely Ideas. But what is also SUPER exciting is that my “Western Dream Story” about Wes (formerly known as José) and Lina (who, by the way, are my most adorable couple to date) has been growing at an absolutely headlong pace which leaves me trembling with excitement to catch up!
Other Creative Pursuits
I watched several absolutely terrific movies including (but not limited to): Ivanhoe (1982), His Private Secretary (1935) and The Lawless Breed (1953)—all of which equals several dazzling, inspirational afternoons. Oh, and dreaming: many, many wonderful fresh spring green days of dreams.
The daffodils have burned golden and vanished. The redbuds, too. (Have you ever happened to see a grey wood full of redbud tree blossoms, perfectly awash with their purple smoke? Talk about brimming loveliness.) The grass has been growing with mad abandon and now all the leaf trees are covered with their little nibs of green blossoms.
My three stints of late: Glowing Green Smoothies, mint drinks, and “Bulletproof” Tea. Especially the tea.
He was… absolutely amazing! Always keeping his hands still as he worked—and completely subtle with his every action—the connection he had with his horses was absolutely mesmerizing.
Classic 50’s BBC TV in the style of The Adventures of Robin Hood, but with a 1700’s piratical twist… I will say no more.
Finally, Wes and Lina (again). True, I have known of them and their story for several years, but it is only recently that I have truly begun to know them as people. (Well, Wes in particular. Lina I have more or less understood from the beginning). I love them more every day and my fingers are perfectly jittery to record their story!
