Winter break is almost here and I had a busy week last week with parent conferences and I'm exhausted. I haven't even made it up to the horses today and it's nearly noon! Plus, another arctic storm is barreling down the coast and even the horse ranch will be getting snow by next Tuesday (a snow advisory has already been issued for our local mountains, with estimates of snow down to 4,000 feet!!!). I really need a break. I have two other major blogs and since we'll be traveling during the winter break, I'm going to focus on them. In case you are interested, they are: http://rav4adventures.blogspot.com (Deep Canyon) and Deserts and Beyond at http://desertsandbeyond.blogspot.com I may update my desert southwest blog, also, since we'll be traveling to Arizona. It is http://desertswest.blogspot.com/ So, please, enjoy your friends and family during this time. If I get some decent photos of the horses tomorrow, I may post them, otherwise I'll see 'ya all in a few weeks!
