May 26, 2012


I still can't believe that I'm in Sedona and have just spent the day immersed in horses! This is me and Lilly after a very powerful experience of connecting with one another and walking around together. She has been a beautiful reflection to me of a deep aspect of myself. I am so thankful for this experience and can't wait to share in more detail and in more ways!


I've been trying to do my winter/summer crossover storage/apartment layout for a while now and the heat that hit this week (the fan is on all the time now!) made me realize it's now or never. So, I washed my blankies and this one needed some mending before going away for the year. Who decides to help out? That's right - my cat loves to be in the action. Thankfully she conceded to be moved OFF the freshly washed/in the process of being mended blankie without much fuss.

Mom really wanted me to plant some of these bush green beans and I was shocked I could actually find some at Sobey's on Friday! Once Reg tackles the jungle growing in the backyard, I will figure out where to plant them.

Wow Jamie! Look at you in Sedona! With horses! And Lilly is so beautiful. What a powerful and amazing moment.

Way to go Suzie for finding and planning on planting some green beans! I don't think I've ever tried that, Do they grow above the ground? I feel like I hsould know . but I don't think I do!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Wow, Shannon, I'm so impressed that you mended the blanket and got it all set before putting it away for the summer. That rocks! And way to go, Mr. Man, for helping out! He looks so young in that picture I almost thought it was a rewind!

Beans!! What was it about these particular beans that made Mom recommend them, do you know? I have such good memories growing beans. Did you ever do that thing as a kid where you put the seed on a wet paper towel on a pie plate and watched it sprout? I loved that!

It was an amazing experience to be with the horses. I can't wait to share more details and more pictures. One of the most amazing feelings is having a horse come and rest his/her head on your shoulder. What a blessing!

Jamie, I adore that photo of you with Lily! I guess your health has been OK with the horses? I can't wait to hear more Jamie. I wish horses liked me but I've had a few bad encounters with them so having one rest its head on your shoulder is true animal magic to me. Lovely!

Shannon, it's been that hot eh? I'm going to roast when I'm there! Yes, moving from winter to summer sounds smart to me. Mr. Man looks very cute in the photo and just as I always think of him.

Mom said these "bush beans" do grow above ground and very quickly. I know Shannon, I couldn't visualize it at all, I kept thinking of peas growing up a trellis. Jamie, she said that they taste incredible and grow so fast that I won't believe their flavour. Yes, I remember growing sprouts!!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I'm sorry to hear about bad horse encounters, Suzie. I know that theY sure bring up a lot of stuff. There were many times when they walked away from me too or one came up behind me and gave me a bit of a scare! I'm glad to have had some touching momenta too!

Those beans sound amazing. I can't wait to see how they grow and hear what they taste like!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I forgot to answer your health question, Suzie! My allergies haven't bothered me - not a lick! I'm just delighted! Yay!

Suzie Ridler said...

Horses are so sensitive, I know, I think I'm just too intense and I've made peace with that. It sounds like a lot of stuff has happened Jamie. That you have learned a lot from them already! I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that it hasn't had a bad impact on your health. That is amazing! :) So happy for you.
