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.



  1. I'm glad you're feeling better after bumping your head. That's not good! You take good care of yourself, and no riding yet!

    I have trouble in the winter too. The sun and warmth today was wonderful. I did the math and we're over half way through with winter, if you count from solstice to equinox. I was desperately in need of good weather, so I counted the days. :)

    If you hear of any good trail mounts for sale, keep me in mind. Sadly, I am looking again. I think I want a mule this time. Am I crazy? I need to spend more time around some mules. Wouldn't pass up a nice horse though.

  2. Oh Lea, I'm sorry to hear that. Are you trying to push yourself at the yoga class a bit too much? I do hope you'll be careful...and yes, bless Bob's heart. He loves you! Spring will be here before you know it, and then you'll be too busy to be blue. For some reason, I don't really understand, this is winter #2 where I've not been affected by SAD. Boy, do I remember those dark days though, hope you're feeling much better really soon. Take care of yourself. Blessings, Lorie

  3. Lea I haven't kept up with blogs ver well since the first of the year because of some sciatic nerve and back issues - I've posted some but not read very many at all. I'm so sorry about your fall. I know that it was scary as well as embarrassing for you. I worry about falling - have fallen a couple of times and about three years ago cracked my pelvic bone when I fell in the yard. But I'm so glad you're still able to do your Bible study group. Just getting together with other women can be so uplifting. blessings, marlene
