Tragedy struck!!

Last night, I went to make yogurt using my Piima Culture and discovered I ate the last of it!!!!!  Luckily, I had some of it set aside in the freezer.  I’m slowly heating some cream to re-culture it and will return a back-up to the freezer.  I went ahead and bought another culture from Moonwise […]

Back to the horse thing

Several months ago, I watched this old-timey horse trainer work with a horse and he really impressed me.  I also knew that he dealt in a lot of used horse tack so Yesterday, I decided to give him a call to see if he had a back cinch and a pulling-style breast collar.  The saddle […]

It’s raining …

It started just as I headed out to milk.  I suppose I should be happy about the rain and I am, but I really wanted to ride today.  Maybe it will let up soon and Sudi will dry off enough so that I can ride him.  I know the seeds I planted on Sunday are […]

Several months ago, Mica bit the tail of one of the cats.  The puncture wounds were not healing.  […]

Gas Prices

Are they not ridiculous?  I was considering going to South Mountain to ride Sudi on Thursday, but not with gas being as high as it is.  As much as I enjoy riding at South Mountain, it seems a frivolous expense given our current financial situation.  It is not only the price of gas (South Mountain […]

A quick update

All the chores are done (I think!) and soon I’ll have to get dressed for MM.  I am not feeling all that great, but nothing a couple of aspirin won’t temporarily take care of.  Yes, I occasionally take aspirin and more than occasionally, allergy medicine, but you do what you’ve got to do. Yesterday Wally […]
