    Yes, Friday already and where did the week go? I've been so busy taking care of business on my days off, mostly horse business, so I don't mind. Got rid of the virus on the computer. Stopped counting at 7 hours, yes 7 hours total online/on the phone with AT&T/ other technical support over the past two evenings. Just waiting for my new improved Uverse Internet update to get here Wednesday so my computer won't be so slow anymore. When I told the tech help what operating system I am using, she says, "Wow, really? That's amazing" I guess because it is so old. Since when is 12 years old, anyway?

    Sounds like tomorrow is a big day for several of us. Let's all take pics, OK? I'm super excited about going out for my mare's first "trail ride". I've owned her going on three years now and as far as I know she has only been an arena horse (cutting). I've always ridden her out in the pasture but we'll see how she does hauling by herself and riding with a group tomorrow.

    DBArabians, we are going to Benbrook Lake, a trail head that is on the south side of the lake. It's fairly close to me since we are south of Ft. Worth. I joined TETRA and am also going to join another north Texas trail riding group to make some trail riding friends. Everybody I know does arena riding.

    Anyway, here is the pic from Tuesday that shoes where all my money goes My colt, the grullo, is just as tall now as my mare! He just turned two.

    Sounds like some of us are going to have some fun this weekend! More gardening for me - almost got things wrapped up. Can't go do anything horsie since I'm still brooding chickens in the horse trailer - in fact I still haven't got their coggins done for this year so I am really grounded for the time being. The chickens still need another month in there at least.

    But either by bike or horse, I plan to go out around the neighborhood and look for signs of dewberries. I'm starting to see little white flowers here and there, so for me (the nature nut) I've got to keep an eye out for the best spots to pick from for jelly. Opened up my last jar of homemade dewberry jelly last weekend and boy it is a fight. I have to hide it in the back of the fridge or it is gone in no time.

    Did you know, if you take a pint of heavy whipping cream (try not to get ultra-pasteurized) and puree it (I use a handheld puree/blender), the liquid that separates is buttermilk and the stuff that clumps together is pure butter! Take your butter and form it into a ball, run it under some cold water to wash off any extra buttermilk, and set it in a dish in the fridge. Best butter you ever had. Now take your leftover buttermilk (about a cup) and make yourself some buttermilk biscuits - add your favorite jelly and there you go.

    Well, put in tomatoes this weekend and reupholstered our pillows and found a creative solution to making a new table cloth out of fabric that is not wide enough.

    Spring Break is over now though and sadly, having a few days off makes going back harder. *sigh* Almost done, almost done. Don't get me wrong, I really like the program, I'd just like to have a life again ;)

    Spent the day with my friend on the horses yesterday. Got to 91 first half had a little breeze, so it was good. Last half, the breeze stopped! Poor fat horses (and riders) were pooped! (and a little sunburnt! Lol)
