ready for adventure...or a really steep hill

Squeeee! Horse riding in Lake Geneva. Susan(in white) was a bit terrified at first. Us city girls aren't used to all that wide open space. And barns.The horses themselves were really quirky. My horse, Wyatt refused to walk in the mud and took his sweet time getting everywhere.Mr. Hainey(with Susan) just wanted to eat while walking. And Bob(on the left with Ashlee) was a bit of a creeper and liked to be two inches from all other horses butt's. Ashlee even got to ride her's fast through a field. It was clear who grew up in the country out of the three of us.
All in all a fantastic day!

I keep failing to regularly update like I promised I would. I know. No gold star for me this week.
So, a quick update of sorts until I actually start to be productive and get pictures onto my laptop.

1. Went on a mini road trip with Ashlee and Susan. We rode horses! And yes there is proof coming so soon.
Side note: manual cameras are awesome but a pain to share in the digital world. And I have my eyes on getting a Holga.
2. Stumped over what to do now that it's warmer out and knitting no longer seem appropriate. Desperately trying to work with Ashlee's sewing machine in order to do...something. If my current attempt to adjust a t-shirt to fit me works, I'll gleefully share and continue with more such projects.
3. I really like bullet point lists.
4. I want these socks from Fred Flare In fact, I want to have a field day at that site.
