In regards to #6 – I am so glad that I have trained myself not to scream, run, or jump wildly around when Twink is loose and kicking her heels all over our yard. I’m also glad she decided not to take me for a walk over to the neighbors, and calmed down enough to go back to the barn. Basically she can go wherever she pleases and I couldn’t stop her, but so far she’s hasn’t figured that out. :)

And as for #7 – I love that recipe!!! Perfect with the fresh bread! If you check it out, be sure to see Anne’s variation in the comments as well. Sounds soooo good! :)

So, it was a full day. A good day.
How was yours? :)
