Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Chores~Mellow Yellow Monday 020110




I stayed home yesterday because I had yard work to do. I bought a flowering peach up in the mountains on Saturday and I wanted to get it planted in the ground. I also weed wacked out front next to the sunflowers, since that was LONG overdue! Finally, I had borrowed our son's gasoline lawnmower (my electric one finally died) and I got 7/8 of the back yard cut! PHEW! What a day! Hubby was at work, so he missed all the fun! Oh, and I walked down to our local street fair, which is at the community college, which is about 2 blocks away from our desert home. I met our daughter and her finance there and we bought some fresh produce. Lemons were 25 cents each and I've seen them going for 89 cents each at the stores! YIKES! I'm going to have to go to school to rest today! Mellow Yellow Monday for February 1, 2010.

Sounds like a great mellow Monday. I wish our farmer's markets were up and running. A few more months to wait...

I know what you mean about having to go to work to rest. I tried to take a sick day yesterday to just lie in bed and recuperate from 18-hour workdays and endless chores on the weekends, but our heater broke. It got down to be 59 degrees in the house, so instead of resting in bed, I was out in the garage trying to repair the heater and out in the snow chopping wood. Then our cable broke, and our dog got sick so I had to set up a vet appointment. On and on it went. Now I'm going into the office this morning so I can get away from the disasters that keep happening at home every time I try to get a day of rest. Last time I was out in the snow with the flu repairing fences that the horses busted down. Really? Could these problems have better timing than choosing my one-in-a-blue-moon sick days?
