Where Did April Go??
Hi folks -
As I write this it is 10:00 pm and I've just finished catching up on reading the wonderful blogs that I follow. (Tenley, I'm sure glad that you are ok; Fran, it is too cool watching you play with Princess; Horsegirl, I totally admire your incremental progress and determination; and Michelle, I hope that you get well soon!)
I'm lying in bed trying to figure out where the month of April went, and what I did with the time! I can't believe that I haven't updated my blog since mid March.. Many, many things have happened in that time, but I'm having trouble remembering them. Old age, I guess.
Here is a list of things that come to mind:
- Guinness turned two years old on April 26th!
- got a new digital camera with video, including "YouTube" mode
- bought a new trailer and sold my old one
- attended the Parelli Celebration in Harrisburg, PA with 10 members of our local Parelli Play Group
- Guinness has two new half-sisters at Coop's Rockies, born in April
- My husband set all of the posts today for my new 60 ft wooden rail roundpen
- Cody got new "magic shoes" to correct his contracted heels and make him more comfortable
- Smokey & I went on a trail ride to Foster Falls (New River Trail) with some members of the PPG and had a great time!
- finished reading two more of Temple Grandin's books: Animals in Translation and Thinking in Pictures - LOTS to think about
- joined the new www.shareparelli.com site, and then joined a clicker training sub-group (and posted a message)
- Guinness had his first real bath and encountered his first bicycle!
I'm sure that I'm forgetting tons. I'll have to review the photos/video from the past month to see if it jogs my memory. ;-)
I promise to post again very soon!
