I’m on vacation for the next 9 days.
I drove down from Chicago last night and am now on Lady Savina’s farm. She has a multi-page “honey do” list for me. For anyone else in the world I would be resentful, but for her, I’ll do anything. I’ll even climb under the kitchen sink and willfully destroy her plumbing.
I keep telling her I’m not a plumber, but okay, I’ll give it a try.
Her eldest daughter just got a new horse named Joy. It’s a beautiful brown arabian with a white star on it’s face. I’m saying it because I don’t know if it’s a he or she yet. By the end of the day I’ll know.
The youngest daughter is 6 and keeps picking up a guitar and writing songs. The amazing thing is that she doesn’t really know what she’s doing — she’s just strumming without chords — but her lyrics rhyme and they’re all about the power of being a girl, and the amazing things she can do. You can tell she has some strong positive influences.
Just now I got a text from work. They need me to do something immediately. Hmm. So much for vacation.
Hope all is well with you!
