Starting 2012

Bob and his Christmas shirt from my sister. He grew up in Puyallup and graduated from Puyallup High School. He loves the shirt.

This big appy mare is broke to ride and is a rescue near our place. She is for sale for $200.00. Bob says she is about 15 hands and is 10 years old. Don't know how broke or trained but she is a pretty thing.

She wondered what Bob was doing.

I read 115 books last year. That is quite a pile. Some were already started as is the one I already entered for this year. I finished it today. I keep a book in the car, one in the bathroom and one beside my bed. Some were thick, some were thin and very easy reads. Some I used for my devotional time and some Bob read and then handed them off to me. A friend gave me 3 paper grocery bags full of books so have not bought them all. I keep a list of authors and what I have read so I don't grab a book and think that sounds great and then discover I have already read it a year or so ago.

I woke up last night at 5 to midnight and woke Bob up so we could watch the ball drop. Bob went right back to sleep but I didn't. I finally went to sleep about 4:30. Disgusting. I ended up sleeping until about 10. It was noon before I got sort of dressed. Tomorrow I am going to get up and get going. I promised myself that I would work with Sage, rain snow or whatever. Then Tuesday I see Dr. Horn and imaging he will turn me loose with my hand. I pretty much have done that but that will be official.

So, that was our first day of 2012. 2011 was kind of a blah year. I think the two high point of the year was the trip Nikki and I took to Oregon to the Kiger Adoption. We had so much fun. And the other was my first ride on Sage. Then other successful rides on her. Now I will finish up so I can ride her anywhere. The 2 low points of course was my dear brother in law being diagnosed with lung and liver cancer and our daughter in law being diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancer. Now we just have to keep praying them on.


Blessings for the entire year.
