Do your friends whinny at you when they see you?

I’m away from ‘home’.. traveling in Missouri.. taking care of some business. One of the main things I’m doing is finding a new home for my lovable horses, Thunder and Birgit. I’ve had them for over 10 years! I will be camping out with them for the next ~week to really enjoy them and find them the best possible home. It’s hard to do but I’ve come to the realization that, at this point in my life, especially without my dear old Dad, I don’t have the resources and time to take optimal care of them and myself in balance. I will most likely get back into horses in the future and then I’ll be buying another Morgan colt to train up like we did with Thunder…. doing that has been one of the best long-term experiences of my life so far.

HORSES! <3

Postcards I sent for DIY Postcard Swap

Have I said before that mail is very entertaining I’ve been having fun on Flickr too because of the 10 postcard swap I completed this past week. I posted my entries in the group photo pool and found some other very interesting folks because of it. Here are the ones I sent out for the swap.
The photos on the cards are MY photography. ^_^

The drawing of the berries was cut out of a book about fairies.

I wish I could show off the backs! I made them with pretty paper and filled them all out with different colored markers. I took one photo of the back of the orchid card. I filled the other ones out too fast… I was excited once I got my list of addresses to send them to.

I also have been practicing painting on post cards with acrylic paint. These are bloodroot flowers:

Daisy flowers!  I sent this one to my best friend Jackie. She got ME for the swap!  so I sent her back… she is my #11!  (But really my #1 penpal.  She is also to thank for getting me into this wonderful hobby. *Hugs!*)

I really look forward to getting to my mailbox each time I go (it’s a small hike) either because I’m sending or receiving interesting mail. I don’t have any paper bills that show up to get me down and I really enjoy starting fires with the (seemingly) mandatory local advertisement paper that shows up once a week.

I sent out 2 cards using postcrossing.com too…
