What a week!

Being back to work is awesome!  I love having a routine.  I am a much happier person all the way around.  Loving life again!  Woo hoo!

I am going to try to update this as best I can.  It's late and I'm exhausted and will need to go to bed soon.  I've been riding about 4 different times this week, some rides better than others, but I have some photos to share.  Thank you, Jaenne, for the use of your camera.  I think I am going to buy one of these little compact dealy-bobs.

One night during the week, we took the horses over to Pickles Butte.  Not a whole lot of room there, but the views were nice and we laughed a ton.

Saturday morning, I went riding with one of the lawyers from work, her husband, and a friend of theirs.  We went out to Wilson Creek in a direction I'd never been.  What a gorgeous ride!  Rode for about 3 hours up and down some pretty good hills.  The horses were tired, and I know I napped when I got home. 

On Sunday, Emily and I went down to Lewt's place and rode out of his dad's ranch, into the desert and to a nice spot with some great views of the valley.  Long hot ride, but good company and lot of laughs.

I'm so tired, I'm almost glad it's Monday so I can go back to work ... and rest!

Most people come home from work and watch the Olympics until 10:00 p.m.  I figure it's just quicker to watch the news, and it will tell me everything I need to know, and then it still leaves plenty of time to go night riding.  Emily came over last night and we took the horses on the canal again, only went a completely different direction this time.  Pretty funny because I got completely turned around and had no idea where I was ... and I live here!  Anyway, the horses did great.  Kahlua's fun in the dark because she's a little more spirited, paying attention to every concrete pipe, shadow, water inlet, etc.  Ricochet was spooking a bit, which made us both laugh.  Will head down to Melba Friday evening and ride down there with another friend.  Can't wait!
