A whole bunch of stuff that has nothing to do with anything. Or might.

It's like this: Horses Rock Stars Awards Shows Pug Novel-writing and Stuff.  Where do I start? Well, the water in the barn is frozen again.  I HATE when that happens but at least the trough is full.  Let's cheer up by looking at some barnyard winter pictures:

We're not working these days - which I think the horses might actually miss! - but they're getting lots of hay and pats and smooches.  

A reader sent me an email a few days back (Hi Lynn!) asking about good footing for an outdoor riding area.  The short answer is... I'm not sure.  I've been thinking about this for a couple years.  Next week I'll write a post about what I've come up with so far.  

Who watched the SAG AWARDS last weekend?  


Heck that's okay.  I DID!  

It's just what I do, no need to thank.


Robert Plant was in Toronto 2 weeks ago.  And I was not.  Oh Robert.  When, when, will our paths meet again?  I can't friggin' believe I didn't catch this.  

Dang it.  

I won't give up hope!  As long as he keeps doing His Thing, which we can clearly see, He's Still Got IT, there is still a chance I'll get to see him!  And like, remember it this time.  


The White Stripes have called it quits. 

They're going to end on a good note rather than crank out a few crappy boring albums worth of dreck, then give up out of frustration. Good decision guys.  But nevertheless.


SO glad we took the kids to see the a few years back.  That was worth it.  Two freaks on a stage making a lot of noise- that is just what a couple of pre-teens get into.  

I will miss their special brand of weirdness!  

At least Jack has other things going on, and always will.  

But yet again, waaaahhhhhh!

Ok, what else happened this week?  I bought pants.  They fit.  It snowed and now my Pug has to jump through the snow drifts, which is hilarious and darn near indescribable.  Trust me, it's funny.

I got rid of some more junk.  Why the hell did I think I'd need those glass jars after I moved?  Seriously, there's not a worldwide glass shortage happening.  Buh-bye junk.  

"Hello.  I'm Heidi, I'm a horsewoman and a re-writer."

On that happy note, I've worn my computer down to 11% battery and my butt's numb from sitting so long.  Git outta here and go do something!  Git!

Brrrrrrrr! No blankets for the equine critters?

Nah, they're pretty tough. They all three have thick winter fuzzy coats of their own, and with the open shed for shelter they do well.

When I put them in the barn to give them their grain in the evening, they finish eating then look out the door longingly. They like having some freedom to move. But I tell ya, on really nasty evenings with bad wind or deep cold or wet stuff coming out of the sky, or all of that at once, they look pretty happy to spend the night in the barn...

I'm catching up on my blog reading rather than heading out to ride. You're right, it's time to git!
Just so you know, when you tell me you like my writing I always get a warm fuzzy. Thanks.

Love the pictures. Heck, it doesn't seem cold at all, not with all the smiles, not with all the attention being shared and good manners demonstrated.

I always love your pictures. Such pretty horsies! :)

Y'all look happy. Glad the re-writing is going. I'm having a love-hate relationship with revisions right now. Wish I was working on something new.
