Hard to believe that it has been 3 weeks since my last post. I have been very busy the last few weeks, so I just didn't have time to sit and get a post together. So what have I been up to you ask, well my friend Sherry bought 2 horses, then rented some land to put them on, so we have been getting it ready for the horses. Last Sunday the horses arrived and they have settled in nicely. Yesterday, Billy, Alex and I were out there all day, we put up a round pen. Now for those of you who don't know what that is, well it's a round pen, just kidding! It is used for training horses, it keeps them in a small area so it is easier to train them. When we lived in Florida we built one out of wood, here wood is very expensive, so we had one made out of metal, had it delivered and put it up yesterday. Today I am going to use it for the first time. The horse I am training is a 2 year old filly we named her Malaza, I wrote about her before in an earlier post, I have started training her and she is smart, picks up things very fast, a little spoiled, she never had to do anything before now, but she is willing to learn so that is good. She has had a saddle on her but has never been ridden, so after I get her to trust me, I will start on the riding part. I am really looking forward to seeing how much I can teach her. After not having a day to day relationship with horses in 18 months, and all the work that goes with them, I must say I am out of shape for all this work, but I plan on getting it all together again!
Halloween: Another thing that kept us busy, we decided to have a party here and even had a DJ, it was a great time, good food, music and friends, all add up to a good party.
Face book: I know there are lot's of people that don't like face book but I like it, keeping up with all my friends and family in Florida and my family in R.I. is so easy to do, just log in and see pictures of everyone, write a few lines and you are in touch.
Apologies: I have a question for my readers, if you are out of line with some one, you say some thing that they take offense to, you say you are sorry, and think that is the end of it, then you find out that they are still very upset with you and don't want you in their life anymore, so you write them a very apologetic email and tell them that you are sad that they will no longer be involved in your life. What do you do next? I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens. I always like to think that a person should be forgiven. I hope that in time this person comes to forgive and forget because I do miss him in my life.
Pictures: So I have lot's of pictures that are suppose to go on my blogs and now of course I can't remember where some of them have been taken, or how to spell the names of the towns, so I am just going to publish them for you all to see, and that way I can start again!
Swimming: I haven't been in the pool in what seems like ages, been to busy with the horses, I may try and get in there this week, I stuck my hand in it yesterday and it doesn't seem to cold, and there were people in it today.
Snow birds: They are back, traffic is getting worse, restaurants will be getting crowded, some times it doesn't even seem like we live in Mexico, there are so many NOB people here!
Spanish lessons: Yes we are taking Spanish lessons, and if I could find time to study I would be learning more! but I am learning. Yesterday I learned that ropa is clothing , so what is interior ropa? well underwear of course, I cracked up !!!! It is very interesting that words are either female or male, drives me crazy. Billy is light years ahead of me, he talks to everyone!! you should see him at the open air markets. Our favorite market is in Chapala I think they have the best prices and the freshest veggies and fruit, not to mention my favorite taco place is there!
Ending: Ok I think that about does it for this post, time to try and add the pictures, wish me luck!
