Gray Horse Day.....

Greetings fellow bloggers!!! I swear that these past few weeks have flown by. We have been really busy with back-to-school shopping (starts on 9/1), and with enjoying our recent heatwave around here.
(Below is a fine art print titled White Horse Rearing by Sonia Torres) It has literally been too hot to ride (around 95 degrees everyday), so we have been swimming in our finally warmed up pool, and even went tubing down a local river. I would have loved to have taken pictures of that, but cameras and rapids don't always go well together...lol!!!

So, I received a phone call from the place that I interviewed twice at, and was told that I did not get the job. This is because that while the manager was away on vacation, a night shift employee, who also happens to have a bachelors in psychology, applied and they have to hire within their company first.
The good news is that I left a huge impression on them, and they will call me if anything else opens up.
(Below is a fine art print titled Power and Grace by Judi Kent Pyrah) It's all good though. It just means that it wasn't the right place, right???
Today, I had a 45 minute telephone interview for an on call/per diem position at another long term care and hospice facility, ending with a second interview being set up. We shall see.....

(Below is one of my favorite fine art prints-I actually have this one hanging in my living room-titled Head of A White Horse by Jean Louise Theodore Gericault)I must admit that I would be pleased if I didn't find a job for another month or two though. This is because it would be nice to be home and have time to myself without the kidlets. For instance, I cannot do anything that I want to do, when I want to do it.
I know, I know...that's part of being a mom.....
Take horseback riding. I can go whenever I want to, because I will be free of responsibility.

Anywho...please bare with me folks. I know I haven't blogged much about horses lately, but that is because I haven't been able to do much with them. Why??? You guessed it: The kidlets...lol!!!

Ooooh, those prints are absolutely lovely! I'm lucky I get to see the real thing all the time. Just last night, I chased the horses around so that I could admire Annie's prancing and Yalla's running antics.

Good luck with your job search. Something will present itself that will be just the right fit for you.

Love the artwork.

Good luck with the job search. Jobs are hard to come by all over the country, even for college grads, which is why John had to take one in Philadelphia and wait until something might opens up here in NM.
Just keep the faith that the right job will find you. You seem to be a very marketable employee with all of your experience, education and personality. Any company would be lucky to have you working for them.

I hear ya on the horses, kids and freedom situation. Being a homeschool Mom means I never really get a break, but it's much easier now that they're older and don't need 24/7 supervision.
Just the fact that they can prepare their own meals and take care of their sister is wonderful!

The art prints are beautiful. I especially like the Bravado print. Lots of personality and spirit shines through in that horse. And the tack is way cool.

I also like how the horse's mane is braided in Power and Grace. I'd like to try braiding Apache's mane like that. Pretty!

OOOU..that one you have in your home is fabulous!

Well, it is what it is and you should enjoy this time Mellie...it won't be like this again probably. Not saying it won't be good...but the time off is a blessing to have. Everytime Bruce or I get unexpected times off...whew, just, relax in them and enjoy the kids and horses!( NO HOMEWORK-anymore!)

Gald to hear you are getting feedback too!
