Today was a perfect March 1 day. Sun was out this morning and the temperature was warm enough at one point to work outside in short sleeves. Marvelous. I picked some weeds and raked up gumballs for over an hour. Was so glad a friend came to ... Read more

What a wonderful day! About 200 people showed up for two classes of goat yoga. The "kids" and yoga pupils had a wonderful time. I got a workout sweeping stable aisles, carrying a couple of kids, and bringing in horses. I can't imagine ... Read more

Yesterday was certainly a high until evening. At a meeting, a challenge was proposed to me that has left me unsettled. Today I need to work through the feelings because I sense a down-ward spiral. It wasn't the question, but what the question... Read more
