Don't worry; I'm not as fixated on Broadway musicals or Bernadette Peters as it may seem, even if my dancing partner does have red hair and a fine voice. ;-)
This morning I had a brief window of time so Lance and I headed into the woods to enjoy that newly available trail again.
There was plenty to look at: a doe with twins;
a big flock of California quail; a different quality in the light indicating that summer is indeed waning.
Late this afternoon we had a brief shower. I don't know that it was enough to make my arena ridable, but at least it rinsed off the leaves and freshened the atmosphere. Blessings!
