"Poppies.....Poppies...Poppies will put them to sleep!"

 Went out hiking to Garland Ranch this last weekend.  A few shots..the wild flowers are in full bloom.

Sorry not much blogging...lots going on.  Upheaval and changes in my life.  Trying to find a new normal and awaiting to hear what additional changes are in my future.  Just putting it out to the universe..I need certain employment that comes with financial stability and a comfortable place to live.  If anyone wants to send prayers or good energy my way I would appreciate it.  I will eventually the meantime beach walks and time with the dogs is healing.

Whoa 2013 Already!

Well January 2013 is almost gone.  Where has the time gone?

Honestly end of November our house was broken into and both my cameras (my new dslr and my little point & shoot) were among the items taken.  And I just have not felt much like posting.  Santa (aka my Mom) did get me a new camera for Christmas (high end point and shoot).  Thanks Mom <3

Last weekend Izze made her open debut at the Mission Trail cluster.  No Q's but I went in with no expectations.  Retrieves were horrible..but not anything that I had not seen in training.  What was surprising was the Down on Recall she did not down.  And her heeling was a hot mess.  Things to work on.  She did beautiful broad jumps and group exercises.  So we did have some good take aways.

Merry Christmas

Our annual Christmas sojourn to the beach took place on Sunday.  As you can see it was windy and rainy...but we love the beach.  Even a bad beach day is a good one!  Merry Christmas to all!

Pirates Ye Be Warned

So on Sunday Thing 2 and I went sailing on The Lady Washington a 2 masted Brig who was featured in The Pirates of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl as the HMS Interceptor,  What an AMAZING experience!!  A 3 hour tour and you are more than welcome to help the crew sweat the lines and rig the sails.  The ship is based out of Aberdeen WA and sails up and down the west coast doing hands on educational programs.  Crewed mostly by volunteers...Thing 2 thinks he might want to give their program a try.
