It's been awhile. I just don't seem to have the time to put into LJ/DW on a consistent basis lately, but I do read my friends' page almost every day. So, hi!
Last week was super busy. We went to the big CDI Dressage show, one of the biggest they've ever had around here. It was very exciting, and we had a blast.
We took Seraphina, our up and coming 5 year old. She is doing training level, just starting on her dressage career, and is such a good girl. She loves to work, and was so well behaved with all the chaos; we were very, very proud. Besides that, she's beautiful, and talented, and got a lot of attention from a lot of people. She won ribbons in every class she entered; one first, a second, two thirds and a fourth. Not bad, considering she was the most inexperienced of the bunch. We were thrilled. Worth all the early mornings and all the hard work!

I took advantage of all the tack shops, and bought myself a spiffy new coat, one that a lot of people were wearing. It's a Eurostar, long coat with a zipper up the back so you could ride in it, and is toasty warm. I really needed it, because it was rather cold last weekend. No rain, but cold winds.

I haven't worked that much in the first part of the month what with the horse show and everything, so now I'm doing a whole bunch of shifts in the next two weeks. Worked nights last night and have another one tonight. Haven't slept much today, sadly. I had to take my car in for servicing, and it turned out I needed the brakes done...so almost $1000 later, I have yet another reason to go to work tonight! sigh

I haven't been doing much else of late; trying to keep up with some of the shows I watch has been a bit of an effort, but I'm still watching OUAT, The Flash, Castle, and a couple of others. Really enjoying this season of Dancing With the Stars, and the Amazing Race is okay. I got my DVD of my favourite movie ever, LadyHawke in the mail the other day, and I need to find a couple of hours to watch it. And then I have to get my garden ready for planting too! I pulled weeds the other day, and by the time I got back to it they'd grown back. At least I know the soil is good for growing things!

Now I have to eat some dinner and get ready for work.
