Airlines, Airports and Flying during the Holidays

Today is the last day of my work week. Shortly, I'll be taking a shower and getting ready for another day "at the office". I'm so exhausted from this week. Many, many canceled flights, so many canceled holiday plans. So much snow! The flakes keep falling, falling, falling and I have not seen them stop for days. All I can do is pray that today is a good day and I can get everyone to where ever they plan to be for the holidays.


Happy Holidays Everyone... my happy holiday should be starting about 8pm tonight, when I escape the airport and step into real life again!

Every Cowgirl Needs Chocolate

Wanna taste Heaven? I'd love for every chocolate lover to experience Cowgirl Chocolates Last June, I found their booth at the "Farm Chicks" show in Spokane. Of course, I was attracted to the name of the company and the interesting items they had on display. And it never hurts by the fact that they shared a booth with my favorite coffee shop, "Chaps". So, I pulled out the last few bucks I had and bought two truffles. One was a normal truffle, probably a dark chocolate. And then I decided on a Spicy Truffle. I had no idea what to expect from it and thought that having spicy chocolate sounded really wierd. But, I'm always up to try new things. Low and behold, I loved it! It was one of the most interesting, but good chocolates that I have ever had!

So, if your looking for that special gift for your favorite Cowgirl, please check out Cowgirl Chocolates. Made in Moscow, ID.

PS... I love things made locally!

Wind Break!

Whew! The wind has been blowing icey cold air our way, straight down from Canada (Thank you Canadian Friends!). Our horses has plenty of hay, they both have waterproof blankets to help break the wind, and lots of trees, but still not enough in my opinion to keep them comfortable. So my husband (the chainsaw expert now) and I went out and started cutting down trees to make poles for our shelter. We weren't quite sure on how we were going to get the wind break set up, but just got the poles and then started to create.

We tested it ourselves, as we built it and it works very well. You might see the gaps, but it still stops the wind substantially. And as you can see, Classy is checking it out. Nah, really, he sees me and instantly thinks food! *LOL*

I stumbled upon a website. It's one I probably should have visited a long time ago. There are interesting photos and stories. I'm not so interested in the women of current times. You know the ones with all the money, so they can buy the fancy horses, pay the fancy trainers and haul in their big rigs to the show and win. I'm interested in the ladies from the "good ol' days", before my time of course. The ones that quit school before the 8th grade and wanted to grow to be Trick Riders! What an interesting tale that is!

Come with me and check this site out: Be sure to read about Mary Hale. I sure liked hearing how her confidence grew during the photo shoot.
