  • This is the first thing I thought of.

    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    • Picky, picky. And I have no idea how to change it, now. At least I'm not hiding behind a beard

      Official weigh-in: 231#

      D- sweet potatoes, steak, red wine (om nom nom) I considered the very dark chocolate in the freezer, but passed it by. I was stuffed to the gills with the steak.
      B- tea/cream, coffee/cream, greek yogurt/raspberries

      It's funny what "I'm going to the movies, let me know if you want to join me" does to free up a guy's schedule. The Avengers on Friday. Woo hoo!

          • Love the pick - beauty of a horse (no I am not refering to you - haha). I need to zoom in to see ya too, but am mostly just jealous about the horse so - ya I'm a chick, what can I say!

            • OK, just zoomed way in and all I can see is a big ass smile, which is what I'd expect riding that beauty!

              • That was the last day of 9 days in the back country. I totally fell in love with Ranger- although for the whole first day together, I tried to call him Maverick. Not sure why. He was so good, and so solid- but at the same time had a clear personality. I'm not the only one, though. If he ever needs a new home, I'll have to duke it out with one of the instructors to see who gets him. He's the first horse she's ever fallen in love with.

                It's a little hard to see under all the layers, but that was last September- and the lightest I've been in a long time. I lost an inch off my waist on that trip- but with all the lifting of gear (western saddles are HEAVY) and squatting to pee, I was feeling very strong and flexible. I was actually thinking pretty seriously about seeing if I could do that for work- but it's too seasonal, and I'd be away from my gardens and theoretical goats and chickens for too long. It IS something I'll be learning more about for fun, though.

                • when i was a teen a friend had horses and we used to ride together all the time. i loved it. the horse i rode was an older, small, chubby mare, but she really liked to run once everyone started galloping. i wish i could ride again. anyway, totally jealous.

                  • Well, when you come down to visit, we can do the trail ride in the Garden of the Gods. It's awesome. You can do the slack-jawed, wide-eyed staring at the rock formations without tripping over your own feet

                    I miss riding, but if I'm going to do it right, it's time and money that I don't have right now. *sigh* I'll get back to it eventually.

                    Canio- Scope all you want

                    L- WF salad, iced coffee w/ whole milk, sparkling water. Apparently I'm in a salad mood. I need to get the pot roast back in the freezer and pick up some salad fixins so I can stop spending so much.

                    Ugh- I have to get a new phone and a new phone plan. How did I aquire a guy that talks so much? The phone was on it's last legs anyway, but now I can't even hear it so I have to, like, get around to replacing it now. Boo.

                    • horses+steep drop-offs kind of scare me for whatever reason. i'm more of a plains girl when it comes to that type of thing. but i'll definitely give you a heads up if i'm ever in your neck of the woods.

                      • I can't imagine why . . . Actually, I prefer sitting on a horse- they're less likely to trip over their own feet and fall over said steep drop-off. I would love to just balls-to-the-wall race across some plains, but I think I've spent too much time around show horses. What if there's a hole in the ground? What will the plants do to their legs as they whip by? *sigh* Stupid Thoroughbreds.

                        • Garden of the gods is not about steep drop offs at all. It's a lot of paths/trails through an area where huge red rocks jut out of the ground - really amazing scenery - not too much elevation change (at least not in all the parts I have been). I totally hate the shear cliff business like where cliff dwellings are - I mean - how did these people not loose all their kids in accidental falls and the like!

                          • Balls-to-the-wall is a phrase that started in WWII. The throttle handle on the P-51's (correct? I think) had ball-like knobs, so to put the balls to the wall meant pushing the throttle against the firewall, or wide-ass-open. History lesson over.

                            • thanks for the random history lesson (i love those). sounds like a fun trailride.

                              • I am so sharing that with my Dad. I'm all for random factoids

                                It was fun. There was one spot that I was eye-balling, but I just hung on to the saddle and the horse took it in stride. Other than that, it is a very nice (not cliffy) ride. I keep forgetting that the horses out here aren't like the pampered show/race animals I'm used to dealing with
