Welcome 2016!!

This post will have to count for days of Christmas 9-12, since I have regretfully been out of commission while recovering from some unhealthy bacteria encountered via oysters + unseasonably warm water. Blaming it on el nino. Consider my weight loss goals jump-started. Enough said on that subject.

Thanks to my AWESOME SECRET SANTA Erin and her pony Tucker from The Story So Far Equestrian, the festive Christmas posts are now covered, and then some. I came home Wednesday from the post office very excited to open a stout package postmarked from Toronto.

On top was this precious card -

followed by a selection of lovely, thoughtful gifts wrapped in sparkly paper. I know I didn't give Erin much to go on (because - surprises), yet she chose things we both want and need.

For Val there was a Likit candy bar, some groovy new (to us) peppermint treats, and a bar of delicious smelling organic whitening soap, which I'm planning to test out on his (could be a lot brighter) tail until we hit bath season again.

For me, two pairs of plush cozy socks, a set of hand warmers, and a darling grey winged pony ornament which may take up residence hanging from my rear view mirror year round. Last but not least - I would never have bought this for myself - a gorgeous bridle charm.

Best of all is a new blogger and her horse to enjoy getting to know. Thank you so much Erin! (And P.S. Tracy from Fly On Over Secret Santa Master of Ceremonies - you rock lady!)

Wishing a happy, healthy New Year to you all!!

I love, love, love my readers, and knowing that you've stopped by - it really makes my day.

However, to avoid the new illegible blogger word verification, I've added comment moderation. Lesser of two evils.

Please don't let this stop you - keep those comments coming!! :)
