Kissing Her Cowboy_322X454


“Oh, Lord.” Treymont Woods kicked up dust on his boots as he sauntered from the stables to the woman who just had to be his new riding student. Her flaming red hair swooshed from one side of her shoulders to the other as she watched his stallion, Big Blue, canter inside the corral. Her hands, knuckles white, clutched the fence and every muscle in her tall, slim figure looked tight. Before he could get to her, she pivoted toward the parking area, moving her feet like she was fixin’ to run.

“Hey there!” He called out as a distraction. By the time Trey reached the woman’s side, he could hear her breathing like she’d raced a Texas mile. Before he could introduce himself, she turned to him with wide green eyes and shouted, “He’s huge!” Pink splotches bloomed under the freckles on her pale skin.

She licked her bottom lip and shook her head. “No, no, no, no….” and started backing away. “I can’t do this. Keep my deposit. I’ll figure something else out.”

Trey lifted his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. No problem. You don’t have to ride if you don’t want to.”  Her jeans looked too tight for riding, anyway, and that white blouse would be smudged inside five minutes. Hadn’t the woman ever been to a ranch before?

She stopped moving then and frowned at him, causing twin lines to form above her nose. Her adorable nose, now that he’d gotten a decent look. In fact, everything about the woman seemed downright appealing, despite her reaction to Big Blue. Who in their right mind wouldn’t love the greatest horse that ever lived, on sight?

Celebrating Earth Day

Furnishing a pre-owned beach house, in addition to the cost of remodeling and repairs, is an expensive proposition. I’m particular about the appearance of my home, but I also want to find ways to keep to costs down. By scouring thrift shops and yard sales for quality pieces of furniture, I’ve been able to do both.

So far, I’m happy with what I found for my vacation spot: A comfy Broyhill chair with ottomon and throw pillows, brand new, with plastic still covering ($65); gently used table lamp ($10); bedside table ($25); accent table ($10). Total cost $110 and tax free. I also bought brand new pot holders, an oven mitt, and pretty kitchen dish towels, still with original department store tags, for only $1 each.

If you’ve been reluctant to shop at thrift stores, I encourage you to give it a try. It’s fun, and you never know what treasures you’ll find.
