Flashback (Fall 2014)

Flashback (Fall 2014) I was looking through pictures on my phone to try and distract me on the day of Scarlett’s surgery.  That didn’t really help since 90% of my pictures are of Scarlett!  But, I saw some we haven’t shared.  This was right before our first snow of the winter.  It was a beautiful…

The Not-So-Patient Patient (2-19-2015)

The Not-So-Patient Patient (2-19-2015) I brought Scarlett home Thursday night.  This is how messed up my brain has been:  I was supposed to pick her up at 5:30.  It takes an absolute maximum of 1.5 hours to get to Billings on a blue sky day like yesterday.  I left our house at 3pm.  Do the…

Not a Fan of February (2-18-2015)

Not a Fan of February (2-18-2015) It’s been dark days at the Lazy J.  For the past five vomit-filled weeks, we have been trying to figure out what is wrong with Scarlett.  First we assumed she had eaten something disgusting because, well, she’s Scarlett.  The vet agreed.  But the vomiting kept up.  Other dogs in…

Walker is Officially a “Hunt” (1-28-15)

Walker is Officially a “Hunt” (1-28-15) Paperwork has been signed and Walker is officially a “Hunt!”  I never knew this, but her registered name is “Satins Moon Walker.”  How pretty.  Just between us, I think I may have to start calling her Satin.  Walker’s birthday is June 10th.  We will be celebrating this year! Our…

Solar Internet Repeater (Jan 2015)

Solar Internet Repeater (Jan 2015) JR is finishing up work on a months-long project installing a solar internet repeater on a ranch that, until now, had no internet access (other than cellular).   Getting out to the site was quite a feat that required use of a snowcat this time of year: It took another…

Well, This Can’t Be Good (1-7-2015)

Well, This Can’t Be Good (1-7-2015) I’ve been going to physical therapy and doing the Barre3 Challenge this month trying to make my comeback from October’s surgery.  Finally…doctor’s approval!  Wednesday, while on the elliptical, I heard some lovely crunching noises.  Hmmm, I thought.  This can’t be good.  Am I feeling that from the elliptical or…

Moose (1-4-2015)

Moose (1-4-2015) Just after saying I’d never seen a moose in Montana, BOOM!  Moose on the side of the road on the way to the Nordic center!  He was snoozing away.  He was there for a few hours after we first saw him. I texted a friend that lives nearby and she said she and…

Introducing…Miss Walker! (Jan 2015)

Introducing…Miss Walker! (Jan 2015) We are horse owners!  I know, we are as shocked as all of you.  Our wonderful, kind neighbors have four horses.  One of them, Walker, is a tried and true trail horse.  I’ve ridden her myself a few times. But, Walker is older and a bit slower than the horses our…
