A lovely day

Greetings from the forest

So what is your idea of a perfect day?  Mine is a day filled with giggles and smiles.  Sunshine and animals.  Good feelings and friends.

A week ago Monday was just such a day.  I went to see a horse property to list with Rick and was greeted by not only nice humans but also a sweet chocolate lab that brought me a stick to throw.  Yup I fell for that ploy, threw the stick a few times and when I said nope we're done she brought me a bigger stick!  By the time we were getting ready to leave the property sweet Cheyenne had brought me a log to throw.  Such an optimistic puppy dog.

That's a very big stick!
There were also 3 horses on the property.  Two wandered up to me so I said hello.  Then as I was standing there both of these horses started nuzzling the back of my neck and hair.  Holy moly.  I guess I attract horses too!  We all got quite the giggle.  I wanted to bring home one of the horses but Rick said I couldn't.  Thank you Rick.  I'm excited to list this property with Rick.  Its 70 acres of beautiful pastures surrounded by mountains and pines.  And, this is exciting, they have two gardens!

Our day continued to a beautiful property in a community called Eagles Landing.  At the top of the mountain is this incredible home with the most breathtaking view I've ever seen.  Steve, the owner was super nice and so gracious to show me their home.  I could have stayed all day just looking at the view. Pictures will not do it justice but I'll share...
Check out that view!

We had lunch at a cute little cafe in Stonewall and then headed back to Trinidad.  It was cloudy but we missed the rain.  Later I returned home to Oliver and Max who were happy to see me until of course they smelled the dogs and horses on me.  I'm such a traitor!

Now for the animal update -  last week about 9:30 pm Max started growling at the living room door.  I had the blinds down so he only had about a 6" area to peek through.  I thought maybe the toad was back and got up to look.  Thank goodness I now know better than to just walk out because there was a small bear looking at me through the glass.  Max began to bark and the little guy high tailed it out of there.  I think he was admiring (and planning to munch on) my sweet potato plant. No chance for a picture unfortunately.  My neighbors have said they've seen the lil guy around but no Mama.  Hope he's not all alone.  Just for the record, he hasn't been back.

Thats the news from the forest ....

Love and lil bear prints,
