Had a wonderful trip to watch our niece play hoops. Close game all the way through, to end with a three point loss.
It was the first time for me to be in that particular part of our state. It was absolutely beautiful. A bit mountainous, and very much horse country. I want to move!
We all had a great time, much laughter and great conversation. My SIL isn't a bad person to hang with when she is by herself, away from her friends....when it's a 'friend' group, and generally her friends....I am always left out....but on this occasion, we had a ball!
Got home at a decent time, so we scooped my dog up from my moms and also covered the horses. It was 4* when we pulled into her driveway.
. Ugh, this cold has to go!!!!
Speaking of guns, we've been having the conversation of getting me one. Our state is a huge gun supporting state. My DH, mom, a woman friend of mine, as well as many other friends have license to carry. I will only get one if I take classes.
Koolio, it is a huge compliment.
. I finally feel appreciated by this current admin. The past have liked me and all, but I think I said before, the last two principals and super tended to go for the 'younger' teachers....which irritated me bc we experienced teachers have a lot to offer. I think bc we have had so many admin changes in the last five years, our teachers are tired and complacent....these admins see I am willing to shake things up, and now I am a go to person...which I LOVE!!!
Koolio, howed your course go? I have to admit, when is taught 6th, it was my least favorite. I'm not certified to teach beyond that...nor would I want to! And HS kids are scary to me! But JH...takes a special breed.
I've considered a second masters....but not sure in what...
SO MANY BOOKS so little time. I just bought Clinton Anderson's lessons well Learned. Had good reviews, and the table of contents struck a cord...so we willl see....
I feel,like I got out of,horses right when all the 'natural' horsemanship stuff became popular, and I have no idea what it is at a deeper level. I feel like I am a good horse person, and can ride well.....but am a bit uneducated...and can't keep,up well with a horsey friend of mine...who is in her 30s....that bothers me. She was brought up during that time I was 'out of horses' and thus has the knowledge I am lacking. She wants the two,of us to start taking equine courses online together (she runs a college equine program) and I want to...but feel I lack background knowledge that I need. So...instead of a masters, I may pursue an equine cert.
. I'll be 43 in April....time for fun education, right! Hahaha
Roaddy, sometimes frozen poo is actually easier to pick up in the sawdust...as long as it isn't stuck to the ground.
sometimes I use a metal garden rake to unstick it, then the plastic thing.
Eole....what an experience! I might have to out that on my bucket list. Last nights full moon was spectacular....too bad it was SO cold here!
HP, glad,you are feeling better!
Ok, I think that is it for now. Have a nice relaxing Sunday everyone!
