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.

Still here and still healthy!

 We are still here and our family is still healthy.   We (4 adults) have been vaccinated, but not the 2 youngsters.   We just spent a wonderful weekend up in Big Bear, but I got altitude sickness and then hubby did, too, so we are glad to be home to our 200 foot elevation.  I didn't even take any photos!   Bodie got to socialize with our daughter's new Shiz Tsu puppy and the 2 dogs got along.   The grandkids wore us out, however, with their constant bickering.   We DID get to go to some yard sales and I bought an old dictionary and some linens to use in my journals.

It's been a long year many ways.   First, I had to babysit the granddaughter every 2 weeks.   Her other grandmother did the other 2 weeks each month, but she can no longer babysit since she has to take care of her brother.   So, that leaves me...I'm finding that babysitting an 8 year old can be EXHAUSTING!

My garden has taken off.   I have 6 tomato plants, 2 basil, and 2 peppers.   All are doing quite well.   I've picked some of the Roma tomatoes and they are DELICIOUS!

Hubby and I will be celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary tomorrow. He is cooking dinner and we are having a bottle of bubbly.

Stay well!
