"I don't do windows", but I will now!

I snuck out (is snuck a word?) and took my horse to Washoe Lake Park for a ride today.  It was nice to get away from the puddles and mud at the barn and pick our way around the sand dunes.  For the very first time in his 21 years, he thought it would be nice to lay down in the sandy trail!  (with me on him!).  Before he made the next move to lay on his side, I hopped off and told him to get up, you naughty boy!  I believe he had an itch that a nice roll in the sand would scratch....

When I got home I did more on my painting.  And at 4:00 the sun was low and I had a hard time taking a picture of it without my shadow on the work.  Then when I put it on the computer - what are all those vertical streaks!  They are not on the painting at all!  Figured out it was my dirty streaky windows!

Hurrey!!! Carolyn! You snuck out!!! Great! I see you are very happy! And your horse too! So good to go far from usual places and emotions :-)
Really this streaks on your picture looks like a small rain or rays of the sun behind clouds ;-)
This is a very romantic picture with mirror clear water and mountains! Wow! :-)
