Turn right and go.5 miles and you are at my front door. Not a whole lot of snow left but when it freezes we have an ice arena. We tried to go the back way into church this morning but could not get up the other side of the hill. Solid ice, so we could not get up the hill we had just came down (didn't try) so we went out Deep Creek Rd. to Hiway 2. That made us late for church and you who know me know how much i love being late. It makes me sick to my stomach. Only one of my kids inherited that trait. Steve would rather not go than be late and that is my feeling exactly. Hate it.

Bob finished cleaning the stalls nice and clean today so the horses have nice clean stalls this evening. We didn't do much else. We were going over to our friend Cathy's to help her with her mustang but ice is not something we wanted to deal with. We will go when the weather is better. He is a big horse, over 16 hands and a bit intimidating just by size. He is going to make a great horse though, just have to get to him this one last thing.

Tomorrow is supposed to be nice. I am counting on it. One of my New Years Goals, I don't call them resolutions is to get out at least once a week when the weather is nasty and every day when its nice to work with the horses. Maybe Rusty, maybe another. It will be good for whoever and for me too. I do the chores every evening during the week but that is not what I mean. I want to work up a sweat on me.

Don't forget Hope Rising, my book giveaway. Just thru Thursday. Am getting a nice list to draw from. The more often you comment the more often you get entered. Go look at The Serenity Gate blog. She has a wonderful give away going until Valentines day.
