animal therapy

As you know I am spending some time out at my mom and stepfather’s place again this weekend. When I came home from there last weekend I spent far too many days at home hermitting myself again.

Mom had an idea for the perfect quiet, peaceful outing for today.

My mom picked up my sister and we drove out to my Auntie Carole and Uncle Ellis’ house in Abbotsford. My mom and sister chatted in the front seat on the drive and I sat in the back and read a little and looked at the scenery.

These are some pics of the paradise Carole and Ellis call ‘home’ … and some pics of their very special ‘animal family’.

View from the front door:

This one of their many kitty cats :

Auntie Carole’s horse CeeCee:

This is Oreo. Poor little Oreo is sick and not long for this world but oh,
so very loving. Are these not the kindest eyes?: The backyard … a beautiful little private lake:
One of the many gorgeous flowers on the property:Another one of CeeCee:And yes, that is me on CeeCee below.

I would show you more pictures of CeeCee (I took about fifty of them!) but the remainder of the pictures have my aunt, sister or mom in them and my family is a little shy … so I am going to respect that and not post their pics on here.

Anyways, after spending the day with my family and after a cuddle with one of the cats, some love from the dogs, a little ride on the horse and some really nice time with my wonderful Aunt, I am feeling a little better today.

Good idea mom. Thank you for suggesting it and thanks Mandy (my sis) for coming along. One last thank you to my Auntie Carole for the ride, sharing the love of your animals, your knowledge and positive nature.

I love you all to pieces.

    That looks lovely, and I hope you are feeling better.

    We have an orange tabby that loves to stick her tongue out too. I’ll try to snap a pic!

    hey kelly,
    just wanted to thanks for the plug for the Rome miniseries. ‘just finished watching the first season. it was addictive.
    if you ever feeling like curling up with a really good story that (faintly) reminds me of the mini-series, try Manda Scott’s Dreaming the Serpent Spear. it the first of four well-written and sensual books that are a fanastic escape from the rest of the world.
    ‘hope life is treating you gently.
    j.
