Apparently "The Princess", (i.e. Scout) can now ground tie without moving! WOW! That's real progress! My aunt called me and said she wanted to get out of her house for the day yesterday and she would just sit in her car while I did "horse stuff", so off we went early in the morning. We were on the road by 7:30 a.m. and up the mountain we went! I was the only car going up at that time and we only saw a couple coming down. By the time we left (about noon), the mountain road was full of cars going to San Diego. The horses were all fine, although in our heat wave, they must have been quite warm in the afternoon! It was 83 degrees in the desert and mid-sixties up in the mountains. Apparently we broke a few weather records for heat yesterday! And, today will be hot again. My sweet peas (a few of them) are growing and I'm going to replant them again this weekend, when rain is forecast, so I'll have to soak them on Friday. I love to grow sweet peas and now that we have a chain link dog fence in our back yard, I have the perfect place for them to grow!
