Real Life

So apparently I been to caught up in the Equestrian Challenge on her to talk about my real life.  Well I got another horse here (she is not mine, just boarding for a while so her foal could get weaned) and she is a sweetheart.  She does everything...cuts, jumps, trail rides, raises babies, just everything you can think of and is safe for beginners.  She is the one my friend is gonna ride this winter on and jump with me and Kali.

And about a week after she come I took Jessie over to the barn!  I rode her last Friday, Sat, missed Sunday cause of our Christmas Party and rode Monday   It has been a while since I been on a horse I guess (i know its about 2 months) but my legs were really sore Mon so yesterday I didn't go either.  But today and most days from now on I am going cause I wanna get some lessons in before Christmas and she is kinda fat and out of shape. (like me)
(Im sure it was the coldest day that I took Jessie over but I went anyways :)
I got all my Christmas decorations up except my Christmas lights cause I got solar ones this year and had no idea what I was doing when I went out to put them up and I don't know where to put the solar panel so it faces south and isn't covered in snow.  But hopefully before Christmas I will get them up.
(been having some pretty sunsets this month)
Oh and speakin of Christmas sounds like my family is comin Christmas Eve to stay overnight and we are gonna have stockings and presents and then dinner.  And later Christmas Day I am gonna go to Calgary with my sister so we can go boxing day shopping :)  I am real glad this is the plan cause then Neil's family can come out that day as well and we don't have to travel all holidays.
 (We got new phones and Telus sent us Purdy's chocolates, kinda a surprise to open that package!)
( Jam I made this week, Rhubarb raspberry, and Raspberry Cordial)

Sounds like a great way to spend Christmas (well other than the shopping!) you could not drag me into a store on Boxing day!

Love homemade jam! It's so delish!!
That's great your getting some riding in! I wish I could say the same. But with all the rain we get and I don't have an indoor/covered arena, I take the winters off from riding. I hate it. So when I start back up again I will be extremely sore too!!
Sounds like you will be busy for Christmas!

Awesome that you are having family over for Christmas. You're braver than me, going to Calgary for Boxing day shopping. I tried that once.
So you are going to try jumping Kali? Breeches and tall boots and little saddles and all that? Pictures, please!
