happiness is time well spent


it is sunday afternoon and i find myself loading pictures and posting. i am not bored or alone, in-fact  k and elle are waiting for me to start rango, i am happier than i have been in a long while. Yet i am here wanting to share a few pictures of  yesterday- a perfect day, yes it is true, perfect. 

we woke up and made breakfast  coconut french toast, mocha, coffee and smoothies. of course all the animals were fed. then we made a feather necklace for elle to wear, we where going to a Pow Wow on a open piece of land. we stopped at the farmers market, then grabbed a coffee in the city(pittsfield) stopped at the feed store and watched them as the made the grain, horse grain smells so sweet! then we were at the Pow Wow listening to the drums and chanting, watching the dancing, amazed at the beautiful traditional dress. we sat in a tepee and listened to a medicine healer. we picked up a few hand made pieces.  once home we had a very late lunch took the dogs to a dog park so they can socialize. once home we decided to go for along walk at sunset, we climbed hay bales, ran with dogs, had a race or two. the evening ended with a movie and some personal time with k, talking about my upcoming trip to france and how we must try to fit santa fe in there somewhere. 

it was bliss, today equally as beautiful, i will share pics of today soon. Gosh it is good when  k is home, real nice. having elle share time with us is extra special too, where is dylan you ask he like's spending his time at his cousins, video, games, junk food and late nights:)

*pictures with me in it, elle took
*dylan and elle are my niece and nephew
* my top is an old skirt, that i rigged up as a top during the day and a skirt at night:)!

How fun, a blouse by day, a skirt by night.

Beautiful indians, high color, Pow-Wow.

Beautiful country, rolling hills, bales of hay, a time a part from the hustle bustle world.

...and it was good.
