Not my pic.. but MINE by the usual way.. Don’t take!

is how I feel lately.. Full of …

something..

I connect with this horse..

ears alert

Head down

all the straps and buckles too tight

“I can feel the power ready to explode from those back legs!”

BUT!!  This is not necessarily a big bad thing..

I know me.. and I know rodeo horses..

Some of them LOVE and LIVE for the ride..

time…

I have been spending it.. which is ok.. since I have nothing else to spend.. lol

Spending it with my kids, working, getting my feelings hurt.. recovering.. worrying that if I hurt less.. it might mean I miss something.. I just hope it means I am getting smarter.

it has been a while since a photo opportunity has presented it self to me.. and it’s not like I have not been looking.. waiting.. hoping..

Frosty Post

FINALLY!! Some color. FINALLY!! Some color.

Taken with tried and true trusty Ipod.. I am still searching for my camera cord..

so back I go.. to parent, work, and learn.. to hope and dream.. to wait

what a weekend!

16 to 19 hours days since Thursday.. working my usual morning shift and going in in the evening trying to get everyone tagged, photographed and get some paperwork done..  I am taking over management of the dairy herd.. so much to learn! But I am LOVING the challenge.

I am Wore out..

I am taking this evening off.. sitting with my kids, playing with my puppy, making a nice sit down meal and relaxing..

I looked for pics all weekend…  and only yesterday morning did I find anything..

after days of nothing but gray skies.. COLOR!

Fresh Hot Apple Pie kinda happy

I had all but forgotten how much I love to bake..

baking pie.. cooking soup..my daughter singing and dancing in my kitchen.. dogs lounging quietly, Puppy sleeping in a kids lap.. and a peace in my heart..

This kind of happy.. is why I left.. and what we all need more of..
