The Sunday Post-July 8th Edition and Fun at the Horse Show

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

I am in Lexington at a horse show, and it has been hotter than a fire demon’s armpit the entire time we have been here.  If I wasn’t able to take a few breaks in the A/C, I don’t think I would have survived the entire week.  Here are a few pictures from the show.

This is one of my traveling companions.  He was so tired!  He also thought my bed was his bed, which was OK until he decided the only place he liked was the middle.  He was breaking Rule Number One, because I had already explained that I got the middle!

It was hot even for the horses.  Here is Elle catching a little shut eye in front of her fan. 

This is Elle in her championship class.  All of that rest paid off, because she acted like a super star! She finished in with a Reserve in Junior Horse driving.  I showed her in both of her driving classes, and after getting off to a rough start, she looked great in our final class of the show.  As for riding – we are not quite there yet!

    When I wrote about my haul I actually wondered if I should include the manga I got, but boy.. too much! :’D Still have to read Kekkaishi, though. A friend said the series was good, but I’m not sure if I’ll like the art. Hmmm!

    @Eileen – I can hardly wait to read it. There have been so many positive reviews for it!

    @Patricia – I think that you should include your graphic novels! I admit that the art in Kekkaishi takes a bit to grow on you, but once you get to know the characters, you will love both the art and the story. It’s a very good series!

    @Danielle – I like Vampire Knight, too, though I occasionally ask myself why. LOL

    I’ve never been a horse person because I haven’t been around them much, but Elle is so beautiful!
