A look at my life, perhaps with a slightly egocentric focus!
Horses, gardening, skiing and fly fishing. Dreamy!

Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, It's Off to Work We Go!
It's been a busy week with only a few 'stolen moments' on the computer.
We've been working on the house - I'll post my weekly list of accomplishments another day.
My sister flew into town yesterday. I picked her up at the airport and we had dinner with my dad.
My brother and sister-in-law flew in today. My hubby and I picked them up and we had lunch and dinner with Dad - but had to drive an hour back home to feed the boys before returning for the second repast.
Today was a gorgeous day in Denver. In the 70's. Sunny. We figured we would have just over an hour between getting home and having to return for dinner. I was looking forward to some time with the horses. When I got out of the car here I knew I wasn't in Denver any longer! The wind was blowing at almost 20 mph. It wasn't a nice day to go out. So...I settled on grooming for a short bit, before tossing hay at the boys and heading out to eat ourselves.
When I was a little girl I dreamed that I would marry a wonderful man, raise Golden Retriever puppies and have my own stable. I must have done something right because I am living my dream! I married an incredible guy and we've been married for over 4 decades (it doesn't make me sound as old that way)! We raised 2 litters of adorable Golden Retriever puppies. Now, I am retired (that wasn't part of my original dream....but as a child I just didn't realize how 'dreamy' it would be!) and I live on almost 10 acres of land. I enjoyed having a team of Haflingers in the back yard but have recently traded in 2 horse power for 340 horsepower. We purchased a motorhome and spend a fair bit of our lives traveling the country. Life is good!
