Catch Up Time

Friday, February 07, 2014

We've all heard that old saying but for me I guess it valid for more than one reason. It's been almost a year since I posted a blog and months since I even visited the SPARK site. Sad but true I have let things go with hopes that I can or could catch up with my daily life. Unfortunately that also is not a plus for me for I have never been able to really get on top of everything that goes on and keep it balanced in a way that will allow me some quite time without dropping something here and there.

Here we are in Michigan weather fighting the frigid cold with some record snow. I just noticed also that I have been removed from all my spark teams.....interesting. I wonder if that happens automatically or that it was done by team leaders. Either way it's ok I guess I can understand the concept.

I did do a lot of horse events this past summer. The granddaughters attended several competition events and by the end of the season we all were exhausted but happy with the outcome. I bought four (4) new horses for the grandkids as if we didn't or they didn't already have enough. But when it comes to friends of the furry kind you can never get enough.

We put up an indoor arena so they can practice all winter long to be ready for next season which is coming up the first of April. The problem most of the winter its been too cold to really get out there and do much with them.

Trying keep up with the girls.

    Beautiful horses! I was competitive with my Arabian when I was younger, mainly English Pleasure and Equitation but I trail rode her too. Now days I'm content to ride my laid back Quarter Horse but I still love to watch the Show Horses go! Congrats on your successes. Hope 2014 is just as good. emoticon

    Thank you all...for the nice comments on the photos. Of course they are photogenic after all I get to pick and choose which ones I put up. I am not going to put up ones that are not at least interesting to look at, blurred, or found to be in a bad light.

Jenn as I am just getting back it's going to take me a while to catch up and see if the site will help me this time around. I made a lot of really nice internet friends on here in the past which was helpful at the time, but as far as loosing weight it actually didn't help me much. They say is always nicer the second time around. So here I go.

  Welcome back. Looks like everyone had great success last year. Here is to even a better 2014. Here in Wisconsin the weather hasn't cooperated with working out either. Even with the indoor at the barn my daughter hasn't ridden since just before the new year. It has been just way too cold. Hopefully soon it will warm up some.
