Years ago, I bought one and turned it into Mr. Z. And then I bought a smaller one, Mini-Z, who has remained a horse. And when I saw that one at the thrift store Thursday night, a pinto no less, I almost bought it. But it was twenty bucks, and I wasn't sure, and
and then I got to work yesterday and work sucked. Extremely busy, which is not terrible in and of itself, but my boss and one of my co-workers were screaming at each other, and I was tired because Tinks had been out all night the night before, and I was worrying about the FRANKENBURGERMEISTER STORM that is going to KILL US ALL, and I kept thinking of that horse in the thrift store, and how awesome he would look all cleaned up, and
I bought the horse on my lunch break. Meet Blaze.
(No, I did not name him. I NEVER GET TO NAME ANYTHING.) (His name is printed on his saddle.)
This afternoon I washed him up and put a coat of varnish on him and I'm pretty sure he's going in my side garden. COME ON OVER TO MY PLACE, GUYS. IT'S AWESOME.
Other things I did today:
Painted some faded pink flamingos blue. Because obviously.
Raked some leaves.
Can you spot the cat in that pic? Hint: Look for the ringtail.
Duct-taped back together the seat belt latch I had managed to hulk-smash the night before. Sadly, the duct tape did not magically fix the smashed-beyond-repair latch, so add that to the list of things-I-will-spend-money-on-never. Hey, it's in the back seat. Nobody sits back there anyway.
Went for a nice long walk. I was doing one of the tougher trails, and was pretty impressed with myself, until I saw a woman doing the exact same trail while walking a spastic pug and drinking a cup of coffee. Now THAT's impressive.
Ran into my ex-husband's sister. Seeing as how I haven't seen any of his family since I left him, over twenty years ago, THAT was awkward. And I'd just done a four-mile walk, so I wasn't exactly looking glamtastic, but then again, I'm pretty sure I STILL looked better than I did by the time I walked out of that marriage, so there's that.
Started some laundry.
And now it's time for a beer. Join me, would ya?
