Save a Forgotten Equine

Yesterday I visited some good friends who live next to a place that rescues endangered horses called SAFE.

My friend Kim, and I enjoyed watching the horses graze out in the pasture. They came close to us, but since we didn't know how they would respond, we didn't try to pet their soft, velvety noses. I must say, it was very hard to resist.

I have always been amazed by the beauty and grace of horses, and how they can be so strong, yet gentle at the same time. I am glad there are places like this that are committed to helping these beautiful animals.

Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
