@blue eyed pony , that's some pretty mild winter time temps. Have you ever seen snow besides in a picture/movie?

@carshon , I wandered about @walkinthewalk for a long time but then finally seen a post by her. I haven't seen anything from @Gold enhorse for quite a while. I was starting to worry about @Foxhunter but she finally started posting again and then there's @Change who hasn't posted anything since early spring. Last time I talked to her she'd been really busy at work but even then she'd throw up a short post in the over 40's thread. I hope all is well with each of them. Funny how you get to worrying about posters and, thankfully, most of the time it's just life keeping them busy.

@PoptartShop , Montana Mikes is along the lines of Texas Roadhouse but not quite as good IMO. I had a tenderloin sandwich and fries and the fries were barely warm, so things like that they could do a better job with. Rolls are no where near as good either.

I think Promise thought it was too hot too. Her expression says "if I have to but I'd really rather be standing in the shade of my shed". LOL

Sis is sticking with because her kids don't want it. Lordy, I brought home a boatload of stuff. Some not family heirlooms like the set of lamps and a roasting pan. LOL

Mom is misbehaving again. It does not matter how many times or how many different doctors tell her she has to stay hydrated and eat if she doesn't want to faint and she minds for a short time and then slips back to her old ways. She does eat, just doesn't like to eat breakfast ever or drink if she's going somewhere so that she won't have to use the little girl's room. She did it to my sister after they had been out shopping the other day and dropped like a log when sis let go of her to unlock her door upon arriving home. I know I've lectured her til I was blue in the face but you eventually give up because she does what she wants anyway. She always said us kids got our stubbornness from dad's side of the family but I think she gave us a healthy dose of it herself. LOL

I was absent for a while as a friend had broken her leg. She has a cafe and market garden and this is a busy time of year. I just didn't have the time!

I walk my dogs and three others so was doing that before opening the cafe for breakfast, after that rush, harvesting and then returning home in the evening taking dogs out and collapsing into bed.

Getting to old for 14 hour days!

Very, very lost once again.
Will be a difficult month for me, because in August I barely work (company holidays), but I earn by the day, so must try and work harder to compensate somehow a little bit. Crappy job, crappy everything related to it :(

Plus my neighbour's death was quite hard on me, and I have been 'licking my wounds' sort of alone. I don't feel like dealing with people much. But not you of course, in real life. My absence here has to do with just lack of time.

Appart from that I have to share that I tacked and rode Tuya alone (on the arena) last weekend, both days. And both days she was a 5 star old fart! I love her very much, and being older I really appreciate her patience for me, my hugs, my pats, my ridiculous voices I make to her... Lol!
Sunday BO was around, and got really happy for me. I really like him and appreciate because I feel he is being honest.
I am restarting slow, like 15 minutes first ride and 20 second, walk and trot. Then comes the trail, hopefully.
I was quite sad and down still from the funeral, had to really push myself to ride, but I am really happy I did :)

And @carshon Golden Horse is doing great, I follow her on Facebook :)

Have a really nice day everyone!!

@Foxhunter , hope your friend is getting around ok now and glad that you weren't absent due to a health issue of your own.

@TuyaGirl , Yay for you and Tuya! Days like that certainly boost your confidence.

Thanks for the update on @Golden Horse .

I spent the day dealing with all the stuff I brought in and piled up yesterday. To make room for some of the new stuff some of our old stuff (no sentimental value) is loaded on the truck for a trip to Goodwill.

@JCnGrace - I have! When I was 9 we flew across the country to Melbourne where there's actual mountains and went up a mountain and spent some time tobogganing in the snow :)

But we have to travel to get to it, it rarely gets below freezing here.
RegalCharm, JCnGrace and TuyaGirl like this.

@JCnGrace you better get some Texas next time! Sooo good. Barely warm fries are unacceptable! Can't beat some free lamps, haha. That's good. Ugh, that sucks your mom is so stubborn, I know it's hard but it does sound like she's gonna do what she wants anyway. Ugh! That is irritating. Out with the old, in with the new! That's good, this way you won't have too much stuff sitting around.

@TuyaGirl sorry to hear that about next month, I know that will be hard. :( I am so glad you finally got to ride miss Tuya, and that she was so good for you. <3 She is so beautiful and such a good girl!! She loves you. I'm sorry about the funeral, I know it hurts. But riding is good for the soul, some horse therapy is all you need sometimes. <3

I confess, I need to catchup on sleep ASAP! Wednesday night the farrier (my original one!!!) came out, we just trailered Promise to where River (bf's horse) is since the farrier was coming late & it'd just make it easier. GOOD news, he's putting his notice in next week, finally, to move her to where my horse is. The BO there is still a mess & care is going downhill. BF is stubborn, so took him long enough to finally wanna get outta there... Promise was good though, we saw a few people & said hi. But she was happy to get back 'home' LOL.

He put front shoes & pads on River, she has flat feet plus her 1 hoof had a puncture wound then blew an abscess. She's walking much better now & is sound! Promise just got a trim, she did good. I have to say, as much as he annoys me & isn't the best w/ communication...he really does amazing work. We are back on the schedule again too!

Tomorrow I'm going to the barn, hopefully gonna ride! Then going to the zoo with my mom, lol, which should be fun. Then going to their house to swim. It's gonna be HOT so I wanna beat the heat with an early morning ride.

Did some lunging!

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Got into a bad car accident yesterday. Didn't think I could be more scared than when I got thrown off a horse, but this takes the cake. Still trembling. Not at all what I needed before getting my permit in 2 months. &#x1f62e;

Everyone is okay - my mom and I got transported via ambulance to the ER, but just bumps, bruises and some sprains.

Not looking forward to the 9 hour drive home.

Just needed to get this off my chest. Oh boy.

@PoptartShop , I don't do the cluttered look. Dirt and dog hair is fine though. LOL Hubby is the opposite. His spaces are stuffed full of furniture and general clutter but he doesn't like dirt. Obviously not enough to keep his spots dusted though because I refuse to have to move all his junk around to do it. I vacuum what little floor space there is in his office and bedroom but that is it. I shut the doors when we have company. LOL

ZOO! That sound like so much fun! When we still lived in Indy I would go to Christmas at the Zoo about every year. Sounds like a fun filled weekend, ENJOY!

@RidingWithRuby , how horrible, I'm glad you're mostly ok! Don't let this incident play on your mind so much that it interferes with your life as in learning to drive or even riding in a car. I know it's scary and all these what if's are probably running through your mind but you have to push them away and think instead about how lucky you were that you and your mom didn't suffer a catastrophic injury.

Moved hay for the minis today. Tomorrow having a late lunch with my friend. Will do chores early before going to meet her because our lunches usually last 3 or 4 hours. The horses but especially Flash were in cling mode again today. I'd get tired of working around him so move to another spot and shortly there he'd be. I finally threatened to shut them out again if they didn't stay out of my way so they moved back so I could work but then blocked my exit. I was trying to squeeze through TJ and Flash because that was the largest opening and the sillies both leaned into me trying to turn me into a pancake. Move on to Frecks and Thunders section and they wanted to stand over the top of me too. Something in the air today I guess. LOL

Forgot the funniest part. At one point the easiest way through was to go under TJ. Now it's been a long time since we've practiced that because bad knees + large belly has made it difficult to do that maneuver. To keep myself from doing a face plant into the muck I had to hang onto Clouds legs for balance but still my legs refused to move while in squatted down position and there I was stuck right under TJ's belly. I ended up having to put my hands in the muck and crawl which is still better than my face. LOL I think next time I'll just have to make them move out of my way. The good part was TJ had not forgot his "in case of trailer emergency or little kids on the loose" lessons and Cloud wasn't the least bit bothered by hands from an unseeable source grabbing her legs.

@JCnGrace Thank you. It was terrible, 15 seconds earlier and she would've nailed my sister in law's van with her two little babies. Terrible to think about.

To make matters worse, she was uninsured. Figures.

I think what made me the angriest was that she never checked on us. She had no injuries, so she was physically able. She watched my mother get loaded into the ambulance. She watched me standing on the edge of the road, shaking and talking to the cops. She never even acknowledged us. Too sad. I'm sure she was feeling shaken and scared and maybe guilty - but still.
