Poof* another weekend has disappeared?

Here I am again.... wondering where the weekend went?
Lets' see if we can figure it out together...
The green goody below was found a few weeks ago hanging on the screen I was using to dry my onions on.
I looked it up, and it's the Pupa for a Monarch Butterfly.
They are suppose to be hanging on milkweed plants, but I guess screening is nice too.
I don't know if you can see it, but it looks like gold thread around the top; and at the bottom are little gold dots... Mother Nature has SO many talents, it's hard to keep track of them all.
Below is Frosty Rabbit...  He is just the sweetest little guy, everyone who visits us wants to take him home.
The answers is NO, you can't have him. 
I got a big bag of little figurines from a friend who has been doing a lot of furniture moving and cleaning out lately... I love little trinkets like that, hours of entertainment!
Pete seems to have taken a liking to the underside of our our cabinet.
What are you doing under there?
He didn't say...
This is what I found when I went out side to feed everyone on Saturday morning!
A lovely butterfly, still sort of wet and wobbly.
It flew away a few hours later.....
I also thought it would be good to test drive a horse....
Cuz I'm just not thinking clearly these days.
His name is "No Trouble at All" and he wasn't ~ he was a great boy.
He was very patient with me, and I thanked him kindly for putting up with me!
The Hubby and Cricket pulling his new cart for the first time around OUR little neighborhood!
(He's only pulled it under his trainer's watchful eye before now...)
Those boys are so smart; how far they have come together!!! :)))
Any a lovely sky to end our Sunday night with....
One day, when I'm done fooling with horses and talking to butterflies; I"ll get back to my craftiness!

Labor Day 2012

Well, the good news is I did NOT labor today..... the day went nothing like what I'd planned ~ but I can use to live in the moment more often anyway. There are rewards to going with the flow....
We went off to meet our little Cricket's Grandparents...  They were charming, like all Grandparents.
This is Grandma....
The guy on the right who looks a lot like Cricket is his Uncle...
This is Grandpa....
A regal stallion in a diminutive frame....
And this is Trav, a Drum/Shire cross.
He's about 1700 pounds of joy......
And it doesn't happen often, or easily....
But I fell teenage girl in love with an AMAZING guy!
Sweet, gentle, falling asleep when you rub his face all around good fella...
I wanted so badly to settle onto his broad back and read a book while he plodded along the field grazing.... It's a dream of mine to have a big horse with the personality of a dog that I can sit on to read.
I also want to go riding on a snowy day....*double sigh* 
So there you have it.... I didn't accomplish a lot this weekend... but there's a lot of value in hugging a big giant horse face of a perfect September day.
I'll get back to my drawing and crafting soon....  but I had to share my day of horse play!
