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.

Back to school

Ugh.  It's back to school today.  How could 3 weeks go by so quickly?  Fortunately, however, I have a full week this week, and then a 3 day weekend!  Thank goodness for federal holidays!  (hee, hee!)

Then, we have 2 three-day weekends again in February!  Whoopie!

Now that my retirement goal is nearing, I'm frankly going to take it easy for the rest of this school year.  I'm NOT going to panic over our stupid pacing schedules for language arts and math.  I'm NOT going to panic over TRYING to get the kids ready for the stupid state tests (what do they REALLY measure anyway?).  I'm going to take days off when I'm sick.

Those are my resolutions.
Beautiful view of the San Bernardino mountains from the Whitewater Preserve.  I drove up there twice this past week.
