getting payed

I am on staycation this week. Instead of sleeping longer, I've kept my alarm set for work hours. I've swapped getting ready for work, with getting ready to do horse chores. It's much faster, easier and far more enjoyable. There is no dress code, the horses could care less what I wear. All four of them have been so good, and sweet. It's too dark for pictures during chores, but I'll try to capture a few. It's warmed up a little, and today there is this odd bright thing in the sky - I think they call it the sun. Not sure, haven't seen it for a long time. 

The funny part is, I look forward to my staycation morning routine (and I'm not a morning person by choice). I am getting payed more then my design job could ever pay me. The satisfied feeling of spending time with our horses and caring for them is priceless.

It is really making me think...

Great equestrian blog - why not come over and post it at hay-net.co.uk an Equine Social Blogging Network!

I wouldn't trade my morning chores for anything- it's the best time of the day.

Sounds like a great staycation. I agree, caring for horses is much more satisfying and rewarding than most of our regular work-a-day jobs. And I often wish I could linger at my morning horse chores instead of feeling pressured to get through them so I can get to the office on time.

I'm on staycation too, but unfortunately focusing more on housework than horsework this week. Enjoy your remaining staycation days.

I'm also on staycation, and my Boyz are home for the first time since May. I'm so enjoying them. Am hoping to take Jaz down the road tomorrow or Saturday.

Makes me think, too ... about retirement, should that ever be a reality.

I do love the work we do at home with animals! Priceless
