The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves – It’s Horse Show Season!

This weekend marked the first horse show of the season.  Typical of a Michigan spring, the weather did not cooperate.  Lows in the 30s, highs in the mid 50s.  It was soooooo cold in the morning!  I opted to dress at the hotel instead of in the changing room at the fairgrounds because the thought of shedding layers in the freezing barn aisle just did not agree with me.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–April 19th Edition

The weather has finally improved, and we have enjoyed temps in the 70s!  The grass is turning green, the flowers are coming back to life, and the trees are slowly starting to bud.  We’ve been warned of another Polar Vortex though, which is expected to hit just in time for the first horse show of the season – next week!  Oh, well, I’ll have to pack a box of hand warmers for the trip.

I had a pleasantly boring week.  I spent most of my leisure time riding or reading, so you aren’t going to hear any complaints about that!  The weather is still a little iffy, but yesterday was beautiful, so here’s hoping there are many more pleasant, sunny days ahead.

What are you doing today?

Happy Easter!  I am going to play with the horses this morning, and then Dean and I are going to spend a quiet day at home with the puppers.  Easter is a laid back holiday for us.  I did sneak away from work early on Friday so I could read and go riding.  What are your plans for today?

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves -

Okay, so wow!  What a week in Romancelandia, huh?  I’m still trying to wrap my head around the revelation that Jane from Dear Author is also a secret best-selling author.  While I applaud her success, I feel duped that the “for readers, by readers” site is actually helmed by a NA author.  That was a big Oh Dear!  moment for me last week.  It’s like the biggest April Fool’s joke ever, except that blog readers are the  fools.

If you are unaware of the situation and want to get up to speed, check out these posts:

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–It’s Spring!

Well, it may be spring, but it still doesn’t quite feel like it here in Michigan.  With highs in the 30s and lows in the teens, I worry about all of those flowers that are beginning to stir.  The grass is still brown, and our trees still don’t have any leaf activity.  I check every day!  Come on, Mother Nature, give us some green!  St Paddy’s day wasn’t enough.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Spring is in the Air!

Last week was a trying week, so I didn’t have the energy to spend much time on the blog.  My time away from work was spent with the dogs, the horses, or reading and decompressing, and I finished Anne Bishop’s Vision in Silver.  The book was just what I needed to escape from reality, but now I’m sad that I’m caught up in the series.  It will be a long wait until the next one!

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Viva Las Vegas!

Last week, Dean and I packed our bags and headed to Las Vegas.  We stayed at the Venetian, in an impressively large standard suite, and spent our vacation strolling along the Strip, playing slot machines, and eating.  It was a nice, relaxing week, and I managed to stay disconnected from my devices for most of the trip, so that was a nice break, too.

Here are some pix:
