Lest you think I have skipped the country, I haven't. I worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday at a horse show in Yakima. It was very hot, in fact 98 on Sunday and not a drop of shade to be found for the most part. I drove straight home after the show was over and collapsed into a warm bath and went to bed. I had a hard time making it through Monday without sinking into the nearest chair all day.

Yesterday our youngest daughter had surgery and we were at the hospital most of the day. In the evening I had to go to Couer d'Alene to a friends home and put together baskets for a silent auction at the Panhandle Back Country Horsemen clinic we are doing September 10 at Farragut State Park. The clinic is called "From Spooky to Calm". There will be, besides the silent auction, a despooking clinic, a trail obstacle clinic, an inspection of horse trailers, a trail ride, a packing demo, a leave no trace discussion, horse first aid and a mounted shooting demo by Bob Peters. If you choose to just come and watch the fee will be $15.00 If you bring your horse It is $25.00. And if there is more in your family that want to come the fee is $65.00 which covers 3 or more with horses. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent and must wear a helmet when mounted on a horse. Lunch will be offered for $5.oo per person. For questions you can call me 994 9829 or Karen at 208 772 2434.

I have only had time to love on Sage a little and groom her today. I did umteen loads of laundry and I am still working on my craft/sewing room. It was so awful but I am getting there slowly.

Maybe tomorrow I will get on her again.
