I Love This House


I’m so happy here. Early spring has come with such a good feeling. The past few months have had their difficulties, but the good times are about to roll at Sassafras Farm. I can feel it.

Yesterday, I ran into Jill from Spencer at Wal-Mart and was able to give her a hug and thank her for standing up for her stove. Then I ran into one of the Seans (superboys). Do you not run into everybody in the world at Wal-Mart? We discussed fencing plans for this weekend. Crossing fingers we aren’t rained out.

In the “more good news” department: THE BULL HAS BEEN ON BP! I have no firm expectations with BP. I tell myself she is just along to babysit Glory Bee. But I continue to hold faith in her, and hope. She is my cow. I love her.

And more, more good news: Coco’s wound is nearly completely healed. Her joint has grown stronger with the support of the splint. She may be able to come home next week. I will let you know. We want her home so badly! We try to be patient while the best is done for her.

    I knew with every word you’ve written about Sassafras Farm that you love each and every brick Suzanne, it oozes from the page and that cannot be bad.
    Great news about Coco, I’m sure you’ll be very relieved once she’s home.

    Spring, time for great new beginnings. I am glad you had a fairly mild winter for your first year. Just enough to guide you to the important things that needed taken care of to make future winters not so difficult :happyflower:
    So many joyful things to be thankful for…your studio, coco recovering well, a good solution for your breeding your cos, a new horse joining the family.
    Sassafras Farm is certainly a great new beginning for you and your whole family! :sun:

    :purpleflower: Your happiness is spreading like sunshine. Could this explain the unseasonably warm weather? It’s not global warming! It’s Suzanne!
