Happy New Year's Eve! -- 2012


Happy New Year's Eve! Any resolutions? Mine are to be a healthier me, to get back at my Parelli studies and pursue my horse dreams, and to have even more fun enjoying my great life with Rick and the critters! oxox

To pursue these goals shouldn't be difficult as long as I plan using long and short-term goals. I know how to do it so here's to a new year full of plans and realized dreams!

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now” ~Alan Lakein

I went back to Weight Watchers December 1st (I may have told you all this already) and I am ready to get serious and down to business. I know what to do and spent the last month slowly getting my head back in the game (a good thing). I am setting reasonable goals and am looking forward to finally hitting my lifetime weight goal this year (and staying there). I am actually more motivated now than back in 2010 when it all started. 2011 was very difficult on many levels in the health area for both Rick and I but, that is all behind us now.

This weekend, I am going to pull out my Parelli materials and make a study plan. The winters can be harsh here so realistically, indoor activities are going to be easier than hands-on play time. Over the spring and summer, Rick and I have several plans for continual improvement of horse facilities. I also will make a play-time plan for hands on horse time and plan to get to at least one clinic this year (even if just auditing).

Finally, enjoying my life with Rick and the critters...not difficult. But, I do plan to spend more time with them and incorporate them into more of the things I am doing. We only have one chance to enjoy life on this Earth I they are my focus.

Happy Holidays from Hidden Meadows!


Good morning friends. It has been a long time since I've posted because I've not had anything to say (can you believe it?)! Work has been really busy and horse time non-existent. I feel more like a waitress and frankly even with that, Rick has done more for them than I have lately.

I started back at Weight Watchers on December 1st and am doing well. To keep my horse journey moving forward, I must be healthy and fit and am working at it again. My back is totally healed and I am feeling great. The program changed just slightly to be a bit more flexible. I switched meeting days and have a new leader. I did this because of my busy schedule. Fortunately, she is excellent, and I am finding that my motivation is at an all time high again.

I did order several new Parelli resources and look forward to reporting about them. I'm off for an extended break from work and look forward to spending time at home with Rick and the critters, catching up on my Parelli studies and playing with my horses.

So, don't give up on me, please keep reading, and keep in touch!

May you all have a fabulous holiday season and prosperous New Year! The photo above is of Morgan and Daisy (my youngest and oldest respectively--Morgan is 3 1/2 years old and Daisy just turned 14 years old at the beginning of the month).
