Had a good day yesterday driving up the mountain and working with my two mustangs on my horsemanship "homework"...getting them to flex and move off their front and hindquarters. Scout, my alpha mare, caught on very quickly. Cali, my loveable palomino, er, uh, huh? didn't really get what I wanted, so I'll need to work with her some more. It was a cold, cloudy, and slightly windy day yesterday, with a rain storm moving in. It finally got just too windy and cold for me, so I headed home. I drove up the mountain about 11:00, which is unusual. I usually go early in the morning, but we had breakfast with our daughter and son-in-law. They made croissants with Nutella and bananas. I didn't eat any bacon or eggs, but they also served fruit. Yummy! We are returning today for ebelskiver (round pancakes)! Here's a link so you can see them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86bleskiver We also get to babysit the grandson today, so we may take him to the Living Desert Reserve to see the model trains!
