The famous lake

 Yes, I am blogging, the hubby begged me to blog.  He has been disappointed, that I have not kept up with the blog.  He says it  is the only way, that he can connect with me when he is gone.  So, I said I would blog but it would only be a few days a week.

A couple of months ago, we went on an all day drive and ended up in Lake Placid.  It sure was a beautiful ride.   The mountains look a lot larger the further north you go in New York.  These are just a few pictures, that we took while we were there.  I will post more tomorrow.

The new job is going great, I still really like it.  The people I work with are great, it is a nice relaxing atmosphere.   I am not working full time, which is nice.  It gives me time to do the things, that I need to do at home.  I am still getting used to working outside the home though, which takes getting used to.  I seem to be too tired to really do much of any thing else, when I get home.

I have put the weaving on the back burner, I hope to get back in the groove soon.  I really need to keep up with the weaving end of things.  I also, want to get back to riding the horses, that has also been neglected.  

I have found that it is still hard to get over the fear of riding, even though, I know that my horses are trained enough, that I should have no problems riding.  I want to always come up with excuses not to spend time with the horses.  Rain, cold, is Sirocco really trust worthy for me to ride him yet, not having someone around in case I fall, you name it, I think of an excuse.  I have even thought about getting rid of  them.  What is the sense of having them if I don't ride.  I do have a girl that is going to come over to my house and work with me and Sirocco.  So, hopefully things will progress past my fear.  Sirocco has had a lot of training done the past couple of years.   It has been away from my house, and it seems like when he comes home, it is a whole new ball game!

So, other than that, things are pretty much the same here on the farm.  Hope you have a great night.
