In March, we spent 2 weeks in Hawaii and it was fantastic. It was a big trip for us to celebrate our 20th anniversary (May 2019) and to celebrate the hubby's recovery from cancer in 2016. Maui has kind of ruined every other beach vacation location - Cuba, the DR, Mexico? Pffft. I'd rather save up and go to Maui. We'll see if we ever get back there - the cost and the logistics of a trip like that are hard with the little farm of creatures that I seem to be collecting.

|I spent a lot of time watching the horses from the window. Fred and Copper had fun playing.|
In June, I took Fred to a schooling show, but my leg wasn't up for the task.
September was a bit melancholy - I had been pondering what to do with Spencer - retire him, sell him...? A solution presented itself with a therapeutic riding center falling in love with him. He went to live there in September and is doing ok, by all reports I've been getting. I miss him a lot, but he is helping people that need it, so that makes it a bit easier.
|Farewell, for now.|

October was also the month of the new (used) truck and many, many purchases, including paying for a stud fee to breed my friend's mare!!!!!!!!!!!!!
November rolled around and I went to Disneyworld for a week with my Mom and cousin. We had fun, but the place was PACKED with people, so that made things a bit tough. I enjoyed a lot of snacks, bought silly hats and got to see a lot of giraffes, so that sort of made up for it.
December is usually pretty quiet in my world. Mostly because it is dark and cold and we are all just trying to survive the weather and the holidays.
