The past month and a half has been filled with holidays, travel, and entertaining. It hasn’t left me much time to do what I love to do, which is explore and capture my discoveries.
Instead I feel like I’m constantly trying to catch up with my long to-do list. What I’d much rather be doing is, laughing at ducks slipping on ice:
Or watch an elegant Tundra Swan look, well..not so elegant:
I could even get down and dirty with a cute Horned Lark.
Instead, the little free time that I’ve had has been spent at the barn taking care of my old mare, Remy Martin. She’s a picky princess and she makes caring for her more than a challenge.
Add to being in a rut, I am heading this Thursday for surgery which will be putting me out of commission for several weeks. Recovery will drive me crazy As I won’t be able to do what I love to do – ride horses, hike, bird with my hefty lens for most likely two months, They say it’ll be worth it. Or let’s hope it will be.
So I’m scheming for a couple of outings before Thursday and hopefully will have something new to share. For now, you’re just going to have to blame it on the ponies. It’s all their fault.
