    Tj-I often don't even use a recipe for my deviled eggs, but it had been awhile, so I used this for my base-from a Reader's Digest book-for each (large) yolk-add 1.5 teaspoons of one of the following-mayo, sour cream, French dressing, or softened butter ( used a combo of mayo & s. Cream)Blend to a smooth paste. Season w/salt, pepper, dry or prepared mustard. If you prefer spicier eggs-add 1 or more of the following-curry powder, Worst. Sauce, cayenne or hot pepper sauce. I always add some dill relish! I like a dash of W. Sauce, & hot sauce-I like spicy. Fill your egg shells & sprinkle w/regular or smoked paprika. This gives lots of variations, so you can make it a bit different each time. They go like hot cakes! Take your time & make it pretty!

    We are going to my BIL's for T-day-I have been asked to bring rolls/bread. So I will be utilizing the "dough" function of my breadmaker-a first for me. Probably use my go-to honey-whole wheat, & I have to find out how many are coming. At least 6 adults, but her daughter sometimes comes so that will be 1 or 2 more & her kid-lets.

    I will miss our community party-Wah! Wah!

    Well we might have some good news. One of the ladies from the homeschool coop group told my wife about a home that is for sale by owner up by her. She lives on a road that runs along the Ecofina Creek Water Management are I have mentioned a few times. It is full of miles and miles of trails for walking and horses so we may ride out this evening to look at it and many others she said were out that way. It is a further drive than I have now by at least 10 miles, but would be worth it in the long run to me.

    They said the property isn't fenced in so I would have to take care of that before taking the horses out there and set up shelter.

    I'll keep you updated on how things are going.

    Hi all!

    Got a ride in tonight. . Found Jay to be a bit gimpy. Guessing it's bc he was recently shod and barefoot. Buted both of them and will ride Rainn tomorrow.

    Feels good to know...I can sleep in tomorrow!!! Can't remember the last time.

    Roaddy, glad things may work put. I agree with Stan, things happen for a reason, often we never know why.

    DH took himself to the ER today.. apparently has been having heart palpitations for the last couple weeks....and has t told me. His labs came back normal....,but we will be careful. Our ER isn't always accurate!.

    I am also known for my deviled eggs!. Will share my recipe too! Different regions....different recipes.

    Talk later.

    Just a quick hello and wishing everyone a fantastic weekend. My son and I just got back to my parents house in AZ from San Diego. We had a fantastic week with my parents visiting Sea World, walking the beach and going to the San Diego Zoo. The zoo was fantastic! Tomorrow evening we fly back home, where DH tells me it is snowing again.
    The end of vacations are always so bitter-sweet. I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed, seeing my daughter and giving all the critters (big and small) a good scratch and a few treats. Unfortunately, DH flies out on a business trip tomorrow morning, so I will miss him for another week . And then there is work... We get in during the wee hours of Sunday morning which gives me exactly one day to catch up on my marking, lesson planning and to do laundry, buy groceries, plow the driveway and clean up in preparation for the work week. Hopefully all goes well and everyone heads back to school rested with a good attitude and ready to learn.

    I am not known for my deviled eggs nor for my ride on Saturday.

    I caught him early this morning, he walked away when he saw me coming. Bugs was wide eyed and jumpy. He tokk about 5 minutes to get into the float. I decided I would not ride him he has a look about him but I went out the the area the trek was then towed the float around for a couple of hours just to get him back into being used to it.

    Brought him home and set him free. At 3.30 this afternoon I decided to tie him up and teach him some patients well I walked into the paddock and he ran away, he has never done that before. I did catch him and as I wright he is tied up learning to wait quietly. Ill let him go about 8pm.

    Tomorrow I was going to the ranch horse club for a games day and ride however with his attitude I will still go, but leave him tied up when I get there. Its a two hour drive each way so he will be getting some trailer time as well. And just too p----- him off, Ill shower him as well. He does not like that much. I carry 80 litres of water and an electric pump on the float just for washing horses and humans.

    I've had him 10 months, and what is happening he is now, trying to be the boss, so I'm going to have some work ahead of me, ground work and long lengths of time tied so he learns patients and maybe a stint on his back. Bugs is about to get an attitude adjustment. I brought him to ride not to shovel feed into. I'm going to have to limit his grass as well, and reduce some of the sugar in his system.

    I don't need to battle a horse but the ride I really want to be on is only two weeks away. Darn horse. But they all go through it

    Cheers all and good luck house hunting Rick.

    Quick pop-in before have to go to bed..

    Rick, hope you had good luck on home search tonight. Have crossed all fingers & toes twice for an ASAP best-place scenario ('course, all that crossing has made it weird to write/type/drive/put on mascara, but whatever, it's worth it).

    Nicker, glad you got to ride tonight!....sure hope your DH is okay...way ok.
    Post your deviled egg recipe when you can, & your "ghost story"!

    Stan, I guess I have a good idea of how you caught Bugs then , from your recent picture...!

    BTW, one of you'all a few pages back (& I apologise for not remembering who) said that I "got it bad" (horse fever), since happy to be around them if only to muck. True. Know what else? I have a little brass bowl I keep on my table for my earrings & watch; it also contains a horse cookie( no, a real cookie, not a poo-cookie). Beside my door that goes outside, on a hook where I hang my keys, I have an old martingale hanging, w/a small pic of a half-moon filled w/stars & the saying"It is never easy reaching for dreams, but those who reach walk in stardust". Adjacent is pics of Addie,Bailey & Tommy. This is what I can see when I go out the door. So: another topic, to add to deviled eggs & ghosts: what are the things you'all have around as reminders, to keep in touch when you can't touch 'em?!

    As I was reading, I was thinking what terrible news Rick - as I read more, I am excited. I hope the new place is all that you want it to be, and that it's possible for you.

    Stan, that's so cool that the business owner saw something in you and gave you that opportunity, way back when in the day. LOL.


    I don't remember if I told you all or not, but on Tues, I was told that the new kid would be moving out next Tues. He ran away from his last foster home, and she's only about a 20 min drive from me. They feared he would run away from me too, so wanted to move him to the other office that's miles away.

    I put up a fight, and was successful, he is staying with me. And what's adorable, is that the kid is really happy about that. He says he wants to be with me, as he can see that I get on kids but only when they deserve it. I said, yes that's right, this is my house, my life, and my stress levels and I don't need to live in massive stress. He was shocked that I viewed it this way.
    He's a keeper. Not saying he's going to be perfect, or easy, but I like his attitude.

    He's having a hell of a time not calling me Miss Alex though, every time I tell him that it's just Alex. I hate being called Miss Alex, and I think it's the product of stupid people, who think it's respectful. Well a kid could easily say F you Miss Alex, is that respectful? To me kids show respect with how they behave, and I don't need to force them to call me something that's just dumb.
