Monday Motivation... From YOU!

While I have plenty of small tasks to complete on my own this week, I need your help with something.

I have a full queue of past events to tell you about (and show you pictures of) but, at this point, I just don't know where to start.

So, I'm asking you to tell me, what do you want to hear about first? Or not at all? Or do you want me to mix it all up and make you go crazy? Some of these events will require a series of posts so keep that in mind.

There's this:

Jesslyn + Jeff-185

which I started talking about, but bailed on before I got to the good stuff.

Some of you may also remember this trip:


which I went on only 2 weeks after breaking my arm.

For Labor Day Weekend, Cowboy H and I went camping here:


which I have done every year since I was an infant. Wood cutting, sunsets, cows and the Hankster were involved.

And at some point at 5K Walk/Run was participated in,


which really wasn't all that exciting, but it raises awareness for a good cause.

It would be really great if y'all could get together and come to a consensus, that way I won't have to decide who to please first. However, I won't push it. Y'all have busy lives, I understand. Can't wait to see what I'm writing about next (or if I'm writing anything at all)!

In the meantime, I went on a RIDE yesterday!


Oh, it was fantastic. And about 80 degrees. My condolences to those of you who are snowed or rained in right now.

Hope everyone is ready for a great week!


  1. the walk wasnt THAT dull, I did get to feel up a mannequin............

  2. I think you should mix it up any way you like!!
    I am so jealous that you got to go riding, and 80 degrees? Is that even possible? Not around here!! Stuck in the pouring rain, again!!

  3. Yes, very jealous about the 80 degrees! Did you ride on over and rescue the Desert Rose?? Seriously, did your husband not teach the DR anything?? I can not believe she was stranded overnight! I think she's cut off from taking lemonade on the trail. Interferes with her reasoning and sense of direction! ;)
    As regarding the posts....hmmm, tough call. I think all of those would make good stories. Also, interested to hear more about your riding philosophies/training techniques, horse goals, favorite breeds/trainers, all that jazz.

  4. I love to read anything that you post!!

  5. Love these photos! Are those boots under the wedding dress? hehe!

    That last picture is cool. The composition is great! And lucky you going on a trail ride in warm weather. Sweet!


  6. vote is for you to finish your wedding progect...after all that was the biggest event of the year! but throw in a few puupy dog and ride posts as the come along!!!

  7. Lisa, you bet they are! Thanks for the compliment on the last photo. Taken from the back of my moving horse, I'm lucky I got anything!

  8. My vote is for the wedding! I have been waiting since the Desert Rose bragged it up!


Howdy y'all! It makes The Homestead a warm and fuzzy place when you stop by; each and every word is read with great appreciation. Thanks for visiting!
