Friday the 13th

Happy Birthday to me. I was awakened by a telephone call from my BFF this morning with the opening, "Welcome to old age." We both turned 60 this year. Medicare is right around the corner. Aggravates me no end that its mandatory when I already have perfectly good health insurance. Of course that may all come to a screeching halt when certain legislation goes into effect.

We're not planning any special activities. I've got some bananas in the freezer as I want to try a banana ice cream recipe that I found on-line. I'm taking a batch of these to the barn today:

I purchased them from Becky on etsy, who is not limited to horses but said they are her most popular.

I bought a book entitled, "Still Riding at 80" that I'm going to read for inspiration one of these days. Right now I'm in the middle of reading a fantasy series. Also have an exercise book that one of the ladies at the barn claims changed her life. I managed to get through half of the exercises. They're only supposed to take 15 minutes but I have to read and re-read each exercise, execute it, then start again with the next one. I'm such a quitter.

Saw Bart chasing something across the yard this morning that turned out to be a baby blue jay. The adult birds were raising a racket. Fortunately, my husband was able to chase Bart off before he did any harm. (Note to self: Must work on obedience training and have both dogs master the "Come" command)


  1. I hope your birthday has been a good one! You keep riding, lady.

  2. Happy Birthday!!! Love the cookies!

    Never stop riding; I know a lady in Houston who is still competing at 70+... and she just bought a new horse!

    My husband turns 66 next month and is still employed full time, with health insurance... but has not been made to register for or receive medicare... so I don't know how that works...
