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.

Christmas Day ~~Merry Christmas

We are staying home this morning, but will go to our daughter's home this afternoon for Christmas dinner.   Papa (hubby) stayed awake ALL NIGHT last night, no...not waiting for Santa, but reading a Raymond Chandler novel on his Kindle!   So, he will need some rest before we go off to Christmas dinner!

I'll be heading over to our son's later this week for his birthday, which is on the 28th.   I have to juggle my visit because our daughter and her family are heading over to see him this weekend and it would be entirely TOO MUCH CHAOS for me to be there with all 5 grandkids!   (... introvert that I am...)

Today I'm crafting...not making a journal, but doing all kinds of mini-books and decorations.   This is ALMOST as much fun as actually making a journal!

Merry Christmas to you and your family (families)!

Just a couple of reflections from up at the ranch~Weekend Reflections~121518

They had 2 days of RAIN up at the horse ranch where I board my horses last week and I drove up there last Saturday.   There was still plenty of water standing around, like the water on this table.   I thought the reflection was nice.

Storm! ~SkyWatch Friday 12/14/18

I went up a couple weekends ago to check in on the horses and buy some pellets.   Fortunately, that day had clouds hanging over the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto mountains, offering some opportunities for photographs.   The light was changing quickly as the clouds swirled around the mountains, but I did manage to get a few photos:

I always LOVE to drive up into our local mountains when it is a cloudy day.   I never know what I'm going to find!
