My face is pretty much healed up.  My nose is still a little tender. 4 more weeks before I can do anything where I might hit my face.  I am not doing yoga any more.  I am afraid of getting hurt more.  Instead I am riding the recumbant bike for half an hour, then I swim for half an hour and then sit in the hot tub 10 minutes, 3x a week.  That is my exercise routine.

Poor Sage feels so neglected.  We have been over in Marysville with our oldest daughter and in Everett with our younger daughter.  It was SO good to see my girls.  We came home to a foot of snow on the ground and Sage just stands and looks at the house.  I had so much to do today that Icould not get out.

We have our second baby calf.  She is named Belle and is red like Abe.  The third one should be here very soon.  This snow storm has really made us concerned. 

 This has not been a good month.  I will be glad for March to arrive.  First of all an old friend died up in Oroville.  We showed horses together.  Then a friend over in Hayden, ID died.  His wife is who I got my new saddle from.  Then last weekend my cousin who we were close to died.  I think a Pulmunary failure but I will miss Donna.  Then,  still reeling from that  our dear dear old friend from church that everyone call Grandma died.  This is a little much.  All but Donna was elderly and 2 had cancer but still.......its tough.

So maybe I will have the picture thingy fixed pretty soon.

I know I have been gone for a while.  First just life gets in the way of things I want to do.  The dark days of winter are very difficult for me.  I find myself in a big slump that gets bigger as the dark days go on.  Now with 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground its been worse.  However, we had some surprise sun today.  I did get outside for a bit.  That helps.

Secondly, while at the Yoga class I have been going to, I got suddenly very dizzy and fell flat on my face.  I think I might have passed out, I don't know but I know I could not move for a bit and my nose was bleeding like a faucet.  No one could have better friends than Lisa and Jen who got me up and out of the room.  Lisa went back and cleaned up the mess.  I was very embarrassed,   I did not go straight to the doctor and I should have.  When Bob forced me to go because I was vomiting one time after the other for 2 days.  I have a  concussion - surprise - but nothing is broken.  They gave me something for the nausea and that really helped.  Today is the first day I have not had to take it at any time.  I lost a few pounds not eating but I am sure it will come back. 

Tomorrow I lead the Bible Study and Bob won't turn me lose with the car so he will drive me.  Bless his heart.  We girls have a good time studying, crying, and laughing together. 

The picture is Rusty.  She wanted more carrots.  I took a handful of carrots for the rest of the horses and 2 big apples for my Princess Sage.  If I was all over from the thunking of my head I would have ridden her today.  But, Bob was not home and I think he might have gotten upset to come home and find me on her back.  Soon though, SOON.

I hope I can keep up better with this page.  Still am having trouble with picturess.  Need a grandson to come and spend the day.  Blessings.
