Do Horses Like Tacos?

I think it's funny how things go in cycles.  This cycle has been "doing lots, but not posting on my blog."

What I'm finding is that means that my computer is last on my list of things to 'do.'  No surfing (ok - very little), no photos uploads (very rarely), and no blog postings (one exception).  While that all isn't a big problem, I'm not filling my 'do' time with lots of activities that require exertion.  (grin)

So, what kind of things HAVE I been doing in the last 3 1/2 weeks?

Another beach ride on Blu (gasp - with Ken!)
Girls trip to Catalina
Emptying all the bedrooms of furniture
New linoleum in the laundry room
New carpet in all the bedrooms
Having my parents visit after a four month absence from the country
Rearranging furniture/gathering items for donation/Putting house back together
Watching Ken and his baseball team win their Championship
And throughout all of this I've been re-reading a series of books in my down-time

And as I look at that list I realize that there actually was a bit of exertion involved in some of these items (grin - again) and I guess I have been pretty busy!

Labor Day weekend was spent with Ken, and Blu.  Had a great lesson on Saturday.  Had a fabulous beach ride on Sunday.  And Ken rode on the beach!  He had fun, too!  Really!

Check us out!

And lest I forget, the funniest part of the weekend......

Ken fed Blu a Taco!  For those of you who watch the Simpsons, you may remember an episode where Homer offers a taco to their race horse if he wins a race.  Well, Ken told Blu at the beginning of the season that if he did well and won a blue ribbon he'd buy him a taco.  Blu did win (more than once!  whee) so on our way to the ranch we stopped at Taco Bell and asked for a "lettuce and tomato taco.  No meat.  No cheese.  Really." (no he didn't tell them it was for a horse - we wanted to be sure they'd sell it to us!)  Ken and I laughed the rest of the way to the ranch thinking about the way the person who took the order had to repeat to the person making the taco "no meat.  no cheese.  really."

So, do horses like tacos?  You decide!

Stay tuned for the next installment.....
