Finally figured out this computer enough to ableto drop in & say hi! The drive went OK-it's the last bit in a strange town that gets my adrenaline flowing. Then a lot of folks sending me to the wrong gates, but I found the right one in tiime, & for the first time in my life, I took the upgrade to 1st class-I was so exhausted from walking all over that terminal for an hour, that I waqnted to try the pampering-it was so worth it for the $50 bucks I spent. We were 15 minutes early,so couldn't squeeze in another glass of wine-LOL!
So I've been eating plenty & being a good & helpful guest. We went to the play Chicago 2 nights ago. My hiking boots fell apart, I've gotten new ones & some winter boots also that will make mucking out much easier in a few months. Bought some books that I will have to ship home and some spices that I have room for, & a new belt for DH.
Haven't studied the camera book yet, & there is more stiffness here in the damp than at home. Forget squatting for awhile and the stuff on lower shelves.
Hunter-as to knowing if a horse gaits-usually a rider can feel it. The last Big QH mare I had, I found out on my first ride-she single-footed! We were by ourselves, but as she went into it, it was just so smooth! I felt like I had hit the jackpot! So, I am very much looking forward to getting Windy home & letting her know that her gait will be utilized quite often.
Dh is hoping to have the wood stove installed by the time I get back home. He has most of the backerboard up & on the platform, & will be putting on the tiles on the platform today.
Once I get my new girls home, we will have a bin dropped off for trash service, & it will be near the corrals, so I don't have to figure our what to do w/the manure as I did before. I always had it hauled off in CA, & that works for me. And then we can clean up the mess that former owners left behind. Some folks must really love to break glass & trash their surroundings is all I can say about that.
Have a great W/E everyone. I'll be back home next Wednesday-just long enough to sleep a bit & repack for the trip back to CA. Four nights there, then home again, sleep a bit & then go get my new girls! Happy Days!
