Last day of 2009

It was a wonderful day.  Wally ended up taking it off from work so we had the day together.  We did a bit of running around, visited his mother and of course took care of the animals.  I can’t think of a better way to end 2009.  We’ll spend the rest of the evening watching […]

Holiday Break

I took a break from writing to enjoy the holiday and enjoy it I did.  I can honestly say this was probably one of the nicest I’ve ever had.  Oh, we were busy, as always, but it was a good busy. The poor dogs haven’t had much work lately, and that may be the way […]

The lesson with Merlin

The lesson with Merlin went really well.  It did wonders for my confidence.  There were a number of adjustments that needed to be done to my tack.  As expected, the saddle is too small for me and because Merlin has a round barrel and low withers, it’s going to be a bit difficult to get […]

Agh!

It took us most of the day, but we got the mess cleaned up (was it ever a mess!) and the shelter back up.  It’s smaller, 15 feet square, but I don’t think the weight of the snow is going to take it down again.  I guess we should have known better to begin with, […]

Best laid plans

Well, I didn’t get much of anything done that I planned to yesterday.  I found a great deal on a jacket for Wally on Craigslist so I drove out to get it.  After I got the jacket, I met his sister to get the ornaments she was going to throw out and then headed home. […]
