Sorry it has been so long since I've posted

I'm not sure how many people actually are worried that I haven't posted in a while but I do have a couple good reasons.  No, I didn't get hurt again!  I have been so busy at work with fiscal year end putting in 10 - 10 1/2 hour days which totally kicked my butt so I was in bed by about 9 every night!  I have done some stamping but sure didn't get anything posted as you can tell. 

So a little update on what else has been going on....I sold my horse that didn't work out and have been busy looking for a new one.  I finally found her in Minnesota near Minneapolis so on Wednesday, after the books closed at work, I got my son up at 6:30 and we drove 5 1/2 hours to get her...and 5 1/2 hours home, we got home at 8 pm.  Here's a picture of her:

It took some time but we finally came up with a name, Jingles.  My daughter brainstormed it.  She had a Fischer Price stick horse when she was little with a little bell at the back she called Jingles.  She has a blue ribbon pedigree with tons of famous horses on her papers.  Her registered name is Scotchsome Tin.  But the best part is, she is a total sweetie.  She has had some training and is riding really nice.  I am just giddy, this is the horse I was meant to have...even though DH thinks I should have found a gelding (neutered male). 

So I will be spending the rest of the summer riding my new girl and enjoying what's left.  After being laid up with broken limbs I missed a lot.  I am still limping around, my ankle still hurts a lot and very swollen.  In Oct. or November I will have the hardware taken out unless I can wait until after Christmas.  I will be stamping too, I can't ride all the time!  Hopefully I will get some posted too.  After Jingles finishes breakfast this morning I'm going riding and this afternoon we are going to my niece/Goddaughter's wedding.  We have new fencing to put up around the horse area too and have to finish getting the hay for the winter...the summer is just too short!

Until next time:  Happy Trails!
