Horsin’ Around

Happy Saturday!

Our day started out at 6 am today. Don, the man Nick’s parents bought their horses from, came up yesterday and stayed the night here at the house with everyone last night before heading home to South Carolina today.

Since he had a good 6 hour drive ahead of him, we got up early to get working on breakfast so we would have time to go see the horses again before he left.

I wanted to get some more practice making my french toast, so we went and picked up some cream cheese and Nature’s Pride Honey Wheat bread for this morning.


I mixed up a bigger batch of my Pumpkin Stuffed French Toast filling, made 5 sandwiches, dipped them in the batter and had Bob flip them on the griddle for me.


We had some diced apple, maple syrup, and bacon from the market. And coffee to wake us up – tea for Nick’s mom.

We headed over to see the horses, but the weather wasn’t nice enough to ride today, sadly. It’s been raining off and on all day, so I don’t know that we’ll get to ride this trip, but it was fun to go see them!


This is Montana.



And this is Stormy.


They are both so beautiful and so sweet. I hope we have good weather the next time we’re here.

We headed back into town and ran a few errands before coming back to the house. Nick and his Dad ran out and washed the truck, so me, Cindy and Harley took a nap  :)

Cindy had put lunch in the crockpot, so we just ate once the boys got back.


We had some london broil with some potato wedges and some salad leftover from last night.

There was also a small slice of that carrot cake, too ;)

Nick and Bob took naps, and Cindy is asleep again so I’m not sure what the plans are right now. I think we’re heading up to the Amish market soon to get a few things I need – the rest of the day is up in the air!

Aren’t weekends the best?

It was soooooooooo good, I want to have it everyday for lunch forever and ever Amen. ;) hehe I think I won’t turn orange if I just eat pumpkin once per day. :P

    Hey girl, I just read your story, I had no idea! You are such a delight… yes, eat to live and the process of not guestimating (my word I use) calories or points is a hard one to break. BUT… I do think in time, I absolutely think it can. :D By the help of Jesus and a sweet support system (hubby and your hubby) we can do it. HUGS!
