a good path / a good trail


L - Nikon / T- iphone

What a wonderful weekend it's been. The long weekend started with a nice visit with my friend Judy on Thursday. We enjoyed Chocolate Berry Earl Grey tea (with vanilla froth) and apple dumplings by the fire and talked about different things. She left me with a bowl full of wonderful colored pottery pieces she made that I can incorporate into my metal work - they inspire me so much. I was glad to have a day off on Friday so I could experiment with them - they are the perfect accent to my feather necklaces and a new butterfly necklace I am working on, possibly some rings. Then I was surprised with a life changing question in the woods Friday afternoon and a wonderful Italian dinner to follow. Saturday I had fun teaching my brother how to make a ring - he was very good at it (as expected). He enjoyed it so much that he made 3 rings during the weekend and felt proud of his accomplishment. It was a joy-filled weekend. I hope your weekend was splendid as well. / so happy. it's been too long since i've been in a saddle. my small group from church went horseback riding up near helen, ga (i'd never been to helen - it's a cute little town) this afternoon and the weather could not have been more ideal - and the ride was awesome. i'm back on my goal of owning a horse one day. i will be so happy.

I haven't been riding since I was in my twenties. very long time ago and yet I grew up riding every day. I still remember the feeling.

I like the implications of your title and accompanying words.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
