Again woke up to a good four inches of new snow - now 5 hours later and still coming down - but had this amazing feeling that it's now RIGHT. It's beautiful and I love watching the horses be at peace with the weather, even like this.
|Love Jesse's snowy eyelashes!|
|Estes, next to 'the shed'. She sure blends in.|
|Yesterday, these two had black backs. Now they just have sad faces. LOL|
Did I mention there is a pallet load of pellets sitting on the back of our truck? Hmmmm, good thing they shrink wrap those babies pretty well! Right now I'm not much help unloading things like that (they weigh slightly more than my coffee cup weight limit), although yesterday, I did help bring in wood. I'm only allowed to carry 'baby' sticks, but it's better than nothing. Beel keeps a really close eye on me.
I've always said that lodge work was the best kind of physical therapy. I tell my PT that all the time. Imagine the stretching that takes place folding sheets for 19 beds at a time (after each full weekend!), and did I mention the making of those beds? Of course, that's just the start ... but I still enjoy my life. How many people get to live in such elegance as the Rocky Mountains?
Although sometimes, I am envious of Mikey in AZ, having the weather to tan her own cow hide. That is so cool. The desert is a way neat place to live if you can take the heat. In fact, most of you bloggers live in really cool regions. I would love to visit everyone of you; I think I will make that a goal - or a NY's resolution, since that's the only kind of resolutions I make (fun ones!).
Due to all our lifestyle changes this year, what with my bionic-ness and the decision to keep the horses home, we have decided to forgo the WNFR (Wrangler National Finals Rodeo) this year. Instead we will travel through AZ in a couple weeks to see a friend who lives near the Mexico border and catch up there. I'm actually looking forward to the trip, even though certain kids have tried to threaten me to stay off any horses while away. What fun is that?
So, you see, I am alive and well, but very, very slow. The arm gets tired before the work gets done (typing is still a strain) and blogging has fallen by the wayside. I promise to do better soon.
