A large box came in the mail this week, and I have no idea who from. It was from a saddlery and inside were several gorgeous saddle pads and horse blankets! It was a wonderful gift for the horses and me, and I will surely use it! I thank whoever it was that sent it. I thought I would share a video of my Christmas Eve Ride with Merlin yesterday, sporting a red pad that came with that haul and jingle bells. It was wonderful to be back on that horse again.

Also in the mail came Meredith Socks (!), coffee, cards, candy, blankets, and stories. Friends stop by from as far away as Germany and as close as next door! The last two days were filled with gifts, kids, chores, cookies, board games, hawk training, and playing music by the fire. I feel so lucky and blessed to have this little scrappy farm be the meeting place of so many wonderful people.

Later today I hope to harness up Merlin in the cart with bells on and ride to some neighbors with some small gifts for the day. I figure it can't hurt to spread a little holiday cheer and I have a beautiful red wool cape which should suit this day with a blue sky and highs in the twenties!

I wish you nothing but a Merry Christmas and hope you all are safe, warm, well fed and content on this day. There are plenty of other days to fuss with the stresses in this world, let today instead be one of good tidings and cheer!

Merry Christmas, Jeanna!
I got a real kick out of seeing a Gucci ad box on your blog. If you make any money from my clicking on it, I will be happy to click and click and click...they can afford a few donations to your venture.

Merry Christmas, Jenna. I am going to leaf through "One Woman Farm" again today to enhance the inspiration of your little farm.

I'm so glad someone was able to give you a special treat. If I had the financial means I would do the same. So, I too thank the secret giver. Bless your generosity. I also send blessings your way Jenna, you give me a gift each time you post your blog. Thank you for sharing your life. You are a talented writer with insight beyond most. You inspire me to live more simply, take delight in the smaller things life has to offer, and to keep getting my hands dirty (even if those around me are clean as a whistle). Cheers to hard work, dirty hands, and all the other little joys that come with living a life "made from scratch".

Merry Christmas Jenna and Happy New Year. Just logging on for the first time since Monday, hence the delay in good wishes. Blessings to you and all your flock.
