Forever Freezing

I love winter, but this is getting ridiculous.  It hasn't been above freezing in weeks.  I keep my house colder than most, but my bed stays nice and warm with that new heated mattress pad.  That is the greatest invention ever!

The weigh loss continues and I feel great!  The nice thing is that I'm not killing myself with some fad diet, and my eating habits won't change much when I get to my goal weight.  (Did you see that?  I said "when"!!!  Ha!)  And something I realized the other day ... the weight is coming off despite that I'm more sedentary right now that I have been since this time last year when I hurt my back and was wracked with depression over losing my brother (which I will never get over.)  Hopefully, the weight will come off a little faster when I am back to riding all the time.  I'm excited to have finally gotten my head in the right place and really started putting some effort into taking care of myself physically.  I haven't felt this good in years!  And now I just can't wait until the sun starts to come out and warm it up a bit to go riding.

And Kahlua ... poor thing.  I feel so bad for her out there in the cold.  I want to bring her in and let her lay on the couch while I feed her chips and dip or something.  I put her blanket on her for a few days, but I've always been told that horses' bodies deal, so I had mixed feelings about it.  The more people you talk to, the more opinions you get.  So I took it off her.  A few days later, I found a very informative post on The Equestrian Vagabond site that make me feel better in knowing I was doing the right thing.

Here's a few photos from my place yesterday morning.

 Everything is just frozen.

I drove over to my friend's house and here's what her street looks like.

Couple of random photos...

 I had Reese with me for the day, and she was awesome.  We went and picked up a bit of grass hay,  looked at a house for sale for my friend, came back to my place and off-loaded the hay, and then we went out to Chad's place to check out a couple of horses he had for sale out in Caldwell.  I think we're going to try to go riding next weekend in the Owyhees ... maybe Wilson Creek or something ... as I think the weather might warm up a bit this week and melt some of this white shit that I am so sick of!  Ha!


  1. Now that looks really cold, makes my weather look very ordinary!

  2. Wow, it does look cold!! But lovely photos, none the less!! Kahlua is looking good. So glad you are feeling better! WTG!!!
