Good evening my lovelies 🙂
Firstly, thank you to every single one of you who commented on my last post – you are all so kind and wonderful and lovely and understanding! I swear, the people who read my blog are the best readers our there :p you guys kick ass!! I don’t really want to write what’s bothering me at the moment, although i will just say that, for once (!) it has nothing to do with food, weight, eating disorders or anything to like that – which in itself is a blessing in disguise I suppose!
Secondly, this is a slightly weird post – I didn’t feel like writing a proper post today, cos…well, I just didn’t 🙂 So instead, I shall show y’all my favourite things today, and over the past few days, cos they make me happy 😀
1) This little ponyface:
If you’re not horsey, it’s hard to put across the feeling they give you..but I know a number of my readers are, so I’m sure they’ll understand how much just hanging out with a horse helps a mood 🙂 Last night, I remembered I hadn’t put Chika’s rug on yet (it was too warm when they went out), so at 10.30pm I put the floodlights on and went to the field. It was so peaceful – the light was shining through the trees, creating beautiful shadows, and all I could see was mist and Chika and her breath in the cold night. It was beautiful! She somewhat spoilt the moment however when I took her onto the driveway – she spotted her rug and assumed it was that pesky lion from the other day, ready to pounce, and in a split second she’d pinged away from me and was back at the fence…VERY nearly taking my finger with her!!! I didn’t actually lose my finger (believe me, that happens <- my mum’s friend had her finger ripped off when it got caught in the rope and the horse pulled back), but I broke 2 nails and it sure did hurt. Hurrumph. Still love her though :p After 5.5years together, there’s little she can do to stop the love!!!! *Le Sigh*
2) All my kitties together as one:
Do you know what momentous occasion brought them together? Dog meat.
Note: They have never, ever all eaten together. EVER.
3) Native American music!!!
It’s so full of emotion, I love it!
4) Dressage to music – I’m a big, biiig dressage fan anyway (that was what Chika and I did) but after watching the World Equestrian Games, my passion has been briefly reignited! – Ulla Salazgeber and Rusty:
Edward Gal and Gribaldi:
Even if you’re not horsey, you must watch! These 2 examples are far from the best – but I adore the music and I love love love the riders.
5) Shopping with my mamma. Exactly what I shall be doing all day tomorrow!
6) Delicious food!
Quinoa mixed with garlic and kale, a sea cake tofu thing…
Cocoa-beet-tomato sauce with rosemary and garlic seasoning, sprouts, broccoli, kabocha…
Spiced veggie burgers…
A lot of cereal blended with pressed coconut milk and blackberries and cinnamon and cocoa powder, topped with date syrup
The spiced veggie burger with aubergine, leek, kabocha and parsnip…
Too much yummy food! (this isn’t all I had today, FYI. A cappuccino with my gran and some So Crispy Bites, amongst other things, went unphotographed..).
What are some of your favourite things at the moment?
(PS – gah – 14miles on Sunday…in the POURING RAIN! That’s what the weatherman is predicting – eek!)
