Appreciation #4

I REALLY appreciate days like today when it's only eighty degrees outside and we're able to actually walk the dogs during the daytime.  :)  It's been such a nice break from the months on end of 100F+ degree weather!

Appreciation #3

Number three is, of course, Chrome!!  By the way, these aren't necessarily in order of importance (hard to say if I love Chrome or Jackal more than the other hehe), it's mainly just in order of what's easiest to take pictures of lol.

Chrome is literally a dream come true.  I'd been dreaming of having a Friesian (or Friesian cross) of my own for TEN years (approx.) when I finally brought him home.  I'd also wanted to raise a weanling on my own and to train my own horse to ride (I've trained for other people, but my own horses had always already been trained more or less).  Last, but not least, I'd always wanted to train a horse using clicker training.  I think Chrome is a total success on all of those things.  :D  He's definitely one of my best friends and hands down the best horse I've ever had.  Love him!  If you want to see more about the picture above check out his blog at http://rdxhorses.blogspot.com.

P.S.  I know I still haven't been posting much, but I originally started posting the things I appreciate to remind myself how lucky I am and to cheer myself up out of my funk and I'm happy to report it has helped!  I'm feeling a lot better.  :D

Appreciation #2

 So . . . I did it.  For the first time ever I hit the "mark all as read" button in my Google Reader.  :(  I had over 700 blog entries to read and there's no way I could ever get caught up, so I guess I'm starting over.  I'm still planning to go back and get caught up on what I've missed, but that's easier to do just going back to where I left off on everyone's blogs than to try to use Google Reader.  So, yeah, sorry if I miss anything important.  I didn't want to do it, but after over a month break from blogging there was just no way to catch up.  If I missed anything really important just leave me a comment and I'll check it out.  :)

So anyway for my Appreciation #2!  I'm sure you all could have guessed Jackal would be second!  He's my other best friend (second to my husband only because he can't talk haha!).  What's weird is I've only had him for four years but it feels like he's been here forever.  I guess that's a pretty common phenomenon lol.  So anyway here is a picture of us cuddling on the bed while I read my book.  And yeah I'm smiling because of the way Jackal's eyes were following my husband as he tried to get a good picture lol.  It was so funny.
