. . . it has been a flyin' along in this new year!
I have been, outside of working mostly, spending all my time with family.
Mom landed in the hospital again, for a day and overnight. Turns out she had overdone it and the pressure she felt in her chest- was not her heart. Whew!
And amongst the new years stresses-
My sister's quest for selling a property at the coast she ended up being the steward of, may have a buyer . This is the 3rd or 4th offer. The first offers were full price. This one comes at a great loss but yet, it is what is standing in the way of her moving back up here to the Portland area.
It has been a huge drain on her time and energies with lawyers and paying bills and finding out - the condo association fees had not been kept up- is what has caused all the toil. No bank will loan on them with the deficit.
So this past year and half has taxed her and us all. Hope it;'s finally over, as our mother truly does need her near to help out with life. Mee too!
My sister andf Nephew had birthdays last week...20 and 60 years on this earth!
We did a lot of wet-weather-dog-walking. My sister has a Blue Cattle dog and a Whippet.
The skies have been beautiful and also, full of drenching rains..in record proportions~Thus, keeping me from too much outdoor riding.
The mare and me have gotten to go out at least once week. I am so loving the bareback pad riding...it just makes me feel euphoric for some reason. Funny thing is ..now- I am nervious to ride in a saddle again!
I have made some arrangements for my new saddle...still have some saving to go, but am slowly getting there.
And finally...here is a phone picture of "We Belong"...we got our nameplate for the stall this week...made me feel permanent, and very good!
So, that is about that for us here...wanted to let all know I am alive...just having some winter blaws.
Next time, I'll tell ya about the wild animals we've concured while riding in the rains of Oregon.
