No pictures, they are still in the camera.  I don't think I took too many other than Halloween.  Had a nice visit with Nikki and her family, got to see Chrissy and Wendy's apartment and spend some time with them.  I also went to Seattle to attend the Washington State Horseman's convention.  I don't think it was as largely attentended as past years.  I would have thought so, I heard so many complaints about it always being in Central or Eastern Washington but they still didn't come so I guess we need to have it where ever we can get the best deal.  Next year in Yakima and that really is most handy for me.  Not that it matters much to the others I would imagine.

My friend Tracey who lives in Bellingham had a terrible thing happen.  She adopted a nice yearling from Burns.  She got away from her by crashing through a fence and running away.  They live across the road from lots of hills, timber, logging roads and such.  They have been looking for over a week now.  She has been sighted but unless they got her this afternoon, they have not gotten her to come to hay and other horses penned up where they saw her last.  Please pray.  The BLM is there now trying to help her.  I have been afraid of that every time we have adopted a horse and let it out of the trailer. 

Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.  It is just about the time we get the first snowfall.  Hope it is just for a few days and not the start of it staying until March.  That has happened.

I am glad to be home.  I have laid around all day not accomplishing much of anything.  I have to tomorrow though.  Laundry does accumulate when you travel and Bob didn't do any while I was gone.  So, I have a weeks worth to do tomorrow. 



  1. Welcome Home, Lea. Laying around after a trip is a nice relief so I'm glad you enjoyed it. I do the same.
    Hope your friend finds her horse. It certainly sounds scary for her.
    Yep, snow is predicted here, too. Preparing here. I think I like the snow way better than constant rain. I come from the Seattle area (Woodinville/Maltby) and we never had good experiences with snow because it was so wet. Never had snow removal like Eastern WA enjoys. It does get 'old' though when it comes and stays without melting in between so I know what you mean about the months long stay. Welcome to Winter! Hugs!

  2. Well, I guess there's no more hope for that Indian Summer right? Fall has arrived here too, grey skies, bleak, cooler weather...and rain. Always the rain. I've never lived anywhere where snow was anything other than white rain. I enjoy snow when it's dry and cold. Last weekend though, we hit 70 degrees and it felt tropical...but we had a light frost this morning. Hoping for a good ground freeze so I can deworm the horses with ivermectin. They are getting quite wooly and fat. I'd heard about Tracey's missing filly. How awful! I sure hope they find her soon. Will keep praying for that. Glad you're home safe and sound. Have had some wonderful sessions with Eagle lately. He loves his one-on-one time with me, he gets all doe-eyed and just about licks his lips off! He is so ready to be ridden. I'm looking for a helmet and hope to have one soon; then I'll be starting to climb aboard. I know he'd never want to hurt me, and his spookiness is improving, but we've not been anywhere but home. One step at a time, right Lea??
