Since I last blogged ... In followup to my last blog, the insurance company decided to fix the car. It took them a week to decide because the repairs were within $500 of the value of the car. It looks really good now. The whole front was... Read more

Thursday was "one of those days". It started out just fine - I got some things done around the house and was on my way to the stable when out of nowhere (it seemed) a big 8 point buck crashed into my car. I spent the rest of the day racing aro... Read more

I can't believe how long it has been since I posted ... I keep saying that, don't I? I do have a couple really good reasons, though: I've been spending as much time as possible with my horse and I've been pushing really hard to get two kin... Read more

I can't believe it has been well over a year since I posted anything except pics. Where does time go? 2013 has been a very busy, but good year. I spent a lot of time at the stable, quilting, visiting with Li'l G (DGS) etc. I helped o... Read more

I wanted to share fall (in my neck of the woods with my SP friends). I have some other lovely ones but couldn't upload them. SP kept saying they were too big - and it's too late to fiddle with making them fit ... so here's what I could post. ... Read more

It's the first of September and I'm feeling reflective ... This summer has been wonderful, busy and so very different from any other I can remember. I've been so busy the time has passed in a blur; I've been riding several times a week, le... Read more

I rode Elli again this afternoon. Matt (the stable co-owner and her primary rider) had watched her yesterday and was not happy with what he saw. So he and Elli Mae had a "long talk" this morning. By the time I got there her "let's go fa... Read more

Okay - I've been fighting with SP for 3 hours re uploading photos; first they're too big, then they're too little (I thought the site was supposed to resize them automatically). I'll try again but I make no guarantees. As planned, Mr. TB a... Read more
