A Spring Cowboy

Today, I opened a few windows in my house.  
Ahhhhh....fresh spring air. Welcome back!
I am a little sad winter is coming to an end.
I love the snow, the cold, cozy evenings, and the crackle of an evening fire.
But change is good, and I think the Little Nies are ready, so I am, too.
Mr. Nielson has been working on the ranch in New Mexico
all week and will be home tomorrow.  
Mr. Nielson has transformed into a true cowboy, 
and he is getting ready to introduce his own cattle to the ranch soon. 
Previously, the ranch had been leasing the land to other local cowboys and their cattle, 
but now Mr. Nielson is ready to take the reins. 
It's pretty ironic. 
A vegetarian cowboy?

Sometimes (especially at night when I am lying in bed alone), I think
about Christian working. He's probably lifting heavy things, digging 
holes, and operating the ranch machinery. 
His wranglers and boots are probably filthy, and his cowboy hat hangs
low over his face, covering his eyes. 
 He's got his gloves and sunglasses on and thinking deeply about his work.

There's something undeniably attractive about a man 
who gets his hands dirty and works hard.

Happy Weekend!
