Moving, moving, moving......

I haven't been online for a few days now..   Not only am I trying to find a new job, and going to interviews, but I have been trying to help a friend who was moving into a new apartment over the weekend.  I think I hate packing up for someone else, as much as I do for my own self!!!....  There is so MUCH stuff!!!....  Truly... do we need ALL this???.....   Yeah,  we think so.... at least, here in America.  Frankly, I am beginning to think there is wisdom in SIMPLIFYING  your life.  Do I really NEED two dozen towels?... Surely, since I live alone, and usually use only 2, or at most, 3 towels to shower and shampoo my hair, and stand on one to keep the puddle from the floor... is it truly necessary to have more than, say, 6, or maybe 8 towels?  Do I really need six baking sheets, much less, when did I last bake cookies?  Or, two crockpots?  Now, I can understand how you may think a junk drawer is a life saver, if you really are in dire need of a gluestick, or a rubberband... and, it takes a Phillips head screwdriver and a flatbladded one to do simply household repairs. But, how many other things hide out in that drawer?  Mine is so full, I can hardly open the drawer, since things tend to expand when the drawer is opened, so it explodes out as I pull it open.  Yeah, and all the boxes of things I have moved around for years now.... heck, I have found boxes where the newspaper things were packed in showed a date from 7 or 8 years ago!...  My things have been in storage more than with me.... It is a bit like Christmas when you find stuff you'd not remembered owning.... LOL.... but, I am going to reform.  I promise..... Now if I can just find the time to unpack and get the stuff given away that I truly don't need.  Yep.  I want to simplifiy my life..... and my belongings...... being organized will give me more time to relax and  enjoy Comanche' too.  I'm still looking for her eggbutt snaffle that I know I've got SOMEWHERE!!!.....  PS.  Hang in there Y'all.  I'm hoping I will soon be able to get my pics back up online.  Say prayers. If I can get myself a new job, the first thing I will do is get myself a new hard drive.  My laptop will be so welcome. The library is good to use, but not like having your own.  I have been snapping new pics of Comanche' and her friends at the barn.  And I am looking forward to spring flowers, and blue skies.... Got to check out some of my friends plans for trailrides too!!!.   Its going to be lots of fun!!!.... 


  1. I will pray for job! But, hopefully, In your line of work that should be pretty easy huh? And, yes, simplifing is a must! I do it everytime we come home from our winter travels. After spending 3-5 mos. in Motorhome, with minimal belongings, I get home and wonder "Why do I need all this STUFF???" It causes me to go on a huge cleaning binge.

  2. Hi, just read your incredible story on Pony girl's blog. Nice to meet another appy lover. They are a unique breed that is for sure. I had my first appy for 25 years. Bought her as a baby and I have her 15 year old son too. she was an amazing mare. I bought another one after she passed on and she is as close to an exact replica as I'll ever find. Didn't think I'd get attached to her like my other ones, but she has stolen my heart. She loves to hug and give kisses. My older mare actually had some of the same bloodlines, (appy ones) as your mare does. She had some arab in her as well. Glad to meet you and look forward to keeping in touch. My blog is
