The rules of this award ask that I disclose 10 honest things about myself, that I nominate/tag seven other people to play, that I notify them of their award, and that I pass the rules on to them.
(I decided to use pictures from a recent hike that the kidlets and I went on, and to use pictures from a recent ride as well) 1) I am the most comfortable when I am out in nature. It doesn't matter where I am-the woods, the desert, the prairie-the earth is so alive, and it rejuvenates me mentally and spiritually. Whether I am on foot or on horseback, there is nothing like it...2) I love poetry, and one of my favorite poems is called Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost. One of my favorite lines from this poem is "...the woods are lovely, dark and deep..." So true!3) I detest living in town, and honestly think that I would be happy living out in the middle of nowhere. Oh sure, I would still want to go to town and do "town" stuff, but I am happy to just be by myself, doing what I love: reading, riding, hiking etc... Maybe one day, when my kidlets are all grown up, I will get my wish.
4) I have always wanted to be a midwife. I have helped welcome a lot of foals, calves, kids-as in the goat kind!-lambs, puppies and kittens into this world, and I also worked with an OB/GYN for some time. There is nothing like getting to know your patient over nine months, and then being there to help them welcome their little miracle into this world.
5) After Shadest-my horse of 16 years died-I bought a yearling 7/8's Arab gelding named MJD Camino de Oro. He was sort of a rebound horse for me, as I had always had one and suddenly found myself horseless. Below is a picture of Amber on him, and you can see how big he was as a three year old. When Amber finally sold him-I was too busy to do much with him so he became Amber's horse-he was 16.1 hands high. Oregonsunshine: doesn't he look like your VTA???6) I don't like country music.I do like bluegrass-that is more folky-but country music has never grown on me. Unfortunately, my hubby and kidlets like it, so I grit my teeth and bear it when I am in the car with them...lol!!! There are a few artists and songs that I do like, but it is just not my style. To each his own, eh? :)7) I am a bona-fide chocoholic. Yes, it is my one weakness...my one downfall-well I am sure that I have more than one downfall, but you know what I mean!!!8) Okay, this is getting really difficult...lol!!! Uhmmmmm....lets see...How about....I am allergic to bees? I have to carry an epi-pen everywhere with me, and it really sucks. I have done it for so long now though, that it has just become a third appendage.
One of my biggest fears is to get into a nest of them while out riding. That would not be good, although that has happened before and I made it out unscathed. Maybe that's because I kicked my horse into a gallop and left everyone else behind??? LOL!!!9) I am going to be 35 in November, and I have decided that I really like being in my mid-thirties. I never thought I would say that, but it is a good age to be. I have lots of life behind me, and I have lots of life ahead of me-hopefully, right????. :)
10)Yea!!!! I am done, right??? I know I am cheating, but this is my blog and I can make up my own rules...lol!!! (sticks tongue out)
Anyway, I hope that I haven't bored you all to tears. If anyone wants to play along, please feel free...
