1. Being able to enjoy the beautiful weather from my porch. We changed around the patio furniture and it's WAY better for enjoying our coffee on the weekends, having a drink after work, and my personal favorite -- eating my lunch while watching the horses graze. Secondary benefit, our house is positioned pretty well to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets from the porches!

2. Working from home lets me watch my horses interact even more (since I can see them out my windows from my desk.

On sunny days, he will lay outside ALL DAY and only come in if I physically drag him in. He loves to toast.

5. Even though the tack room renovation is kind of stalled out (THANKS MENARDS), I am starting to toy around with collecting and creating some finishing touches. I've got matting and frames on the way for an "art project", I bought some shadowboxes so I can finally do something with my boxes of ribbons, I bought a cushion for my double papasan frame, and... cross your fingers... I entered a contest for a "bond session" with a photographer whose work I'm a big fan of...
|I actually ended up ordering different matting in a slightly darker shade, but I'll use this for something. God knows I have about 8912382374 photos that I could frame and do things with.|
