In Texas With A Horse (of course)

The phone rings. It’s Cynthia calling Marcy.

Marcy answers the phone.

Marcy:  Yeah, what?

Cynthia:  Hi Marcy. It’s me.

Marcy (outraged):  Where ARE you?

Cynthia:  In Texas. I’m trying to do a post about my new Cynthia Rowley shirt that I got for $30 at the Marshall’s in Tomball. It’s really cute. 100% Linen with cotton trim and banded at the cuffs and hem. I thought it looked so fab with my cowboy hat.

Marcy:  Whatever.

Cynthia:  I know! My post is really boring without you so I thought I would get Tawny The Horse to pose with me. To jazz things up. The thing is… well… I ‘m scared of her.

Cynthia and Tawny Face Off

Cynthia: We tried to have a conversation about how this was all going to work but she insisted that she wanted to be the star of my photo. Not my shirt. Or me for that matter.

Cynthia Trying To Reason With A Horse

Marcy:  Horses are so egotistical.

Cynthia:  Well, she was getting a little snippy about it. Mom suggested that I put an apple in my cowboy hat.

Cynthia:  Which was pretty nerve wracking but it got Tawny to agree not to kill me. And – she agreed to pose for a double selfie.

Cynthia And Tawny Go Hollywood

Marcy:  You both look deranged.

Cynthia:  Yeah…Tawny tried to change her mind at the last minute and I kept stepping on the live electrical wire that ran along the bottom of the fence.

Marcy:  Figures.

Cynthia:  This was the best I could do considering I was electrocuted AND dealing with an angry diva horse.

Marcy:  Life in the country is stupid. Come back home so we can do a real post.




Tomball Trendsetter

 Wooly Toggle Coat by Free People 

Cynthia:  Greetings from Tomball, Texas. I am surrounded by two loud paparazzi dogs. They must think I’m a Kardashian the way they hound me all day.  Also, a diva horse who thinks she’s Marilyn Monroe.


Cynthia:  And a cat who won’t look at me. We’ll call her Greta Garbo.



Cynthia:  Looks like I have a little Hollywood here in Tomball. However, I do miss my Marcy and hope she won’t be too mad at me when I get home.

My mom thinks I look like Winnie the Pooh in my coat. I can’t decide if that’s a good thing. I mean, really. How IS one one supposed to feel when they are compared to an old man cartoon bear without pants?

This is the Free People Wooly Toggle Coat. I do love it. It’s wool. It’s cozy and unstructured feeling – like a big blanket. It has a big floppy hood that has kept me warm against the frigid Houston wind this week.

Cynthia:  Those big ugly boots are my step-dad’s from 30 years ago. My bucket for holding horse feed is probably from Walmart. The dogs are from the pound.

Does anyone else have a difficult time leaving their pets to go out of town? Do you think about them? Or is it out of sight out of mind?

Here’s my first attempt at video on my new iphone. Now I just have to learn how to edit.

Cynthia:  Yes. I know. I run like a girl.
