Right, Christy? Atti better watch himself!! I don't think Hazel would try to whoop him though...he weighs at least 60lbs more than her and she's very protective of her horns so she rarely butts...HOWEVER, she is sneaky as all get out so she'll outsmart/sneak him about something one of these days!
Agreeed, no horse time is definitely the worst.
we'll make it..maybe! :)
Lacey IS quite fuzzy!
She's convinced we live in the Arctic Circle. I have never met a horse that grows as much fluff as she does...and she's only about half-way compared to what she'll be by January!! I looove my fluffy pony. Fluff-pony hugs = best hugs. She's like a white, impatient, teddy bear. haha
[my theory is that it has something to do with her sight since hours of light has a lot to do with how much hair they grow, or not]
So. What has occurred since Friday?
1. I took my sewing machine to the sewing machine place to be FINALLY FIXED!! I'm so excited. I've been using my mom's machine for all my projects cuz mine was angry..and MINE IS BEING FIXED! I'm so excited. It's kind of my baby.
I got it at Salvation Army for $20, on a half-off day. It's 'vintage' 1968, Kenmore, and the most top of the line one they were selling at the time!! And you know me, I loooove vintage anything. It'll monogram, embroider little designs, AND sew normally! And it still even has the manual, all the feet, and basically the entire kit+kaboodle it was sold with! FOR $20!!!!!!!
But it REALLY needed to be professionally cleaned and therefore wasn't much good for sewing. But now it's getting cleaned [the shop had to call in their elderly, retired, 'consultant' to clean it because none of the young people at the shop knew what to do with it!!] and I'm so stoked.
Brace yourselves for SO MANY sewing projects.
2. I saw Gman last night at church and that was great.
I realized something interesting, post-that^, today: the power of knowing someone believes in and supports you 100%, no matter what you chose to do, and has every bit of faith that you'll always make the right choice in any given situation. AND is pretty darn sure you'll be amazing at whatever you do. I've never had anyone who's supported me that fully before and just the truth of knowing I have that kind of support is SO empowering!
Even just on a friend-level, that's really kind of the greatest.
And I love that he's in my life, giving me that kind of support...cuz BOY do I need it! haha
And he told me last night that "he appreciates my intentional-ness". Not sure what that means but OK! You know me, good ol' intentional Emily!
I thiiiink being intentional is a pretty big compliment? haha
And today I got my haircut significantly [it was real long, now it's a short lil' bob!], posted about it on Facebook, he 'liked' that status, then later -on that same status- I posted a picture of said new hair and he 'liked' that nearly as soon as I posted it!
That made me pretty happy since I was a littttle nervous about what he would think - he's never known me when I had anything shorter than shoulder-length hair and I know he likes my hair [he has a 'thing' for redheads...not that he would ever TELL me that, but he's not at all covert about it. haha].. Of course, not like it realllly matters but I was still a little "I'm going to do this...but I hope it doesn't make him sad!"
And he nevvvvvver 'likes' comments, so the fact he did: me =
I can't wait to hear what he has to say when he actually sees it! haha He's quite complimentary, we might get something juicy.
Saw his dad at church last night too, talked to him briefly. Makinnnnnn' tracks.
Other fun fact: I applied to start being a greeter at church before the service. I'm so excited about that! So nervous too, but excited. I'm really introverted but I love meeting people so I'm going for it. SEE? This is the kind of life change 100% support creates, I would NEVER had even considered this a few months ago...WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO ME?! I'm suddenly on a "becoming a better person" kick, which I love, but whoa. Slow down, turbo. And I got my hair all cut off? I haven't had short hair in over 6 years...
WHAT IS HAPPENING. WHO IS INHABITING MY BODY.
3. Lacey and Hazel are getting their hooves trimmed tomorrow! I can't wait. They're gonna be happy to have them done!
And then, once Lacey's hooves are done, maybe we'll go for a ride on Thursday! That would be ideal.
Oh yes, the buck deer are in rut so brace yourselves for the next few months of buck deer pictures evvvvverywhere. AND I just love photographing deer sooooo...good luck guys.
Queen of Fluff herself.
LOVE this picture of Hazel. LOVE. IT.
Mr. Deer again, in better light on Sunday morning.
"OMG HUMAN. TERROR. DEVILBRINGER"
And that is all!
