Sunday was a really weird ride. Virginia realized she’d hit her snooze too often, and that it was actually mid October and that this Fall season thing needed to happen. It literally went from high 80s to 50s over night. The barn hadn’t switched turnout from night to day yet because of the temps. So Sunday…… Continue reading Strength over progress
Back when I was at the very naive age of 19-ish, and having grown up in our very cultured, but safe life, I had a riding instructor tell me the naughtiest joke I had ever heard in my entire life. Holding her fingers roughly three to four inches apart she asked me, “Why women are…… Continue reading NSFW: Portion control and why I am grateful for T2DM.

This may seem completely silly, but…… Continue reading Nuthin’ humble about this brag

Since the death of my grandmother last October, until now it’s been a roller coaster year. They are not usually like this! After January it was back and forth…… Continue reading The Boys of Summer
All of you are really smart. I am pretty sure you can guess what the problem with nine degrees is…IT’S EFFING COLD! So cold, in fact, that our pipes have frozen twice. Weee! (that’s the sound of money rushing from our wallet.) Oh, and an interior pane in our double pane windows edge failed and then cracked…… Continue reading The problem with 9 degrees…
