One of the bloggers I read mentioned that there was a way to be notified when a blogger posts a new entry. This sounded like a great feature to me as I check a bunch of blogs on a daily basis and some people only post occasionally. What a time saver. Well, I have made several attempts to access this feature and today I think I may have actually done it. I added several blogs to my "blogs I follow" list (which I never had done before) Supposedly, somehow I will be notified when one of these bloggers posts something. I have serious doubts that I did this correctly so I am holding off on adding everyone until I see if this works.
Had a blood draw for CBC yesterday. My doctor only needed to check my cholesterol but I figure the oncologist will want to check everything so I had them take a bunch of blood instead of just a finger prick. All of my doctors are on the same network so it makes it easy for them to access my entire health record. I hate having to leave the house with no coffee. I feel like a zombie.
Anyway, I sped to Costco afterwards to get carrots. I got a ten pound bag but the price had gone up so that it wasn't any cheaper than the grocery store. I guess I'll go back to buying them at Safeway. I have a lesson later today and didn't want to show up empty handed. I recently read a blogger's plea to "not feed treats to my horse" which made me paranoid so I double checked with the stable owner on Monday that it was okay to feed carrots to all the horses. She said I was fine but reiterated that they want me to not feed the treats by hand. Throwing them on the ground isn't as much fun for me but the horses don't care and I think they still associate me as "the carrot lady." They just don't want the horses to get nippy and I guess hand feeding can contribute to bad manners.
I've been perusing used dressage saddles on eBay and other places. Anybody have any advice on what to look for? I've read good reviews on Passier and there seem to be great bargains. Postage is so expensive to Alaska that it will be a major factor, especially if the saddle doesn't fit and I have to return it. I'm hoping I can find something locally to eliminate that problem.
