I must have cowboy blood running in my veins.
I have always wanted to be a cowboy. Life on the ranch. Riding horses. I was a fan of westerns growing up and I am sure this had a lot to do with my fascination with cowboys. Bonanza, The Big Valley, Lancer, Rawhide, The Rifleman....you get the picture.
And as a kid growing up, I wrote a lot of stories about cowboys and cowboy life...most of the stories were inspired from the T.V. series' I watched while I injected my own "heroine" into each story.Some dreams die hard.
I have owned horses (4 of them at one time) and taken care of them (I might add) on 2 acres of property in the "country"...well, it was Poway, CA and it is "the City in the Country". A beautiful piece of San Diego County.
I still hope, one day (when we move to Tennessee) to own a piece of property again and maybe have another horse (oh, yeah, and a big garden...but I will save that story for another post).
Until then I am happy enough just wearing my cowboy boots.
And just between you and me, it is a deeply guarded secret that cowboy boots are THE most comfortable shoes a woman will ever own. Of course, Uggs are right up there for comfort too....but I can't wear Uggs to work.
I have been meaning to blog all week...about lots of things, because I have had lots of bloggy thoughts floating around but I have been, shall I say, preoccupied with "stuff". That being said, I want to share this with ya'all.
We have been attending The Rock Church and we always have really amazing worship time before our message. Last Sunday, Mike Clark and the Band lead worship. It was Awesome!!
I found some of his music videos to share. Watch and listen to this one and here is another one.
I am ordering his CD and I can't wait until he and the band return to The Rock!
Today at work, I was under a lot of pressure to complete three separate discovery responses out the door with all of the accompanying documents organized, copied and identified by close of business. The stress gave me nightmares last night. But, I got it all done just shy of 15 minutes before the end of my day.
I work 7-4, which is a schedule I like. I have to get up at 5 am, but it is so nice to be done and on my way home from work before the rest of the city is bogged down.
Tonight my sweet hubby cooked me a wonderful dinner and let me sip Pinot Grigio and keep him company in the kitchen. (He really wanted me to "chillax" in the living room, but I wanted to be with him). After a delicious dinner, I put all the dishes in the dishwasher and set up the coffee maker for tomorrow morning...and now it's time to kick back.
I am blogging and he is gaming...'Motorsport' on Playstation 3 (PS3). Our latest purchase. He and I played 'Baja 1000' over the weekend. That was a lot of fun. I like the racing games!
We're having a nice night together. I love my life.
We brought Grace's Hippo Gym and she stayed busy entertaining us with her cuteness!
(BTW, that little scratch on her face, she inflicted on herself the night before while she was nursing. Her mama trimmed her nails again the next morning...darn those nails grow so fast! ) Poor baby girl. Life is rough.
Liberty Park will be a favorite destination of mine to take Grace and spend the day.
These pictures make me miss her all the more. I'm ready to hop a Jet Blue flight back to Utah....pronto.
