Hayao Miyazaki Rocks

More stable pictures. Notice the rider's footwear: Footen-Voggens on Tabs and my 20 year old cowgirl clogs on Mist. Mist is going to be a tall girl. At 11, she and I already have the same size of feet. Although hers are even narrower than mine--AAAA.
I love going out to the stables to hang with all the animals. It has reminded me of how much I love living amongst all sorts of creatures. I am determined now, to definitely keep my eyes open for an acreage and get the girls horses and me a few chickens(eggs) . I may take lessons with the girls so I am prepared to raise horses. I know only what I learned from my dad as a kid and as my sisters know, I was the reluctant horse woman back then. Growing up as one of four girls makes one strive to find her independent way. And all of us sisters were all so similar in our interests in many ways, it made it hard to find a platform of individuality. So now, I am overwhelmed by my love for animals once again and want an acreage.
I've been meditating on life and everything is grand except I need to step up my painting, art sites and Uni work. That's what Buddha told me anyway (JK). Girls are out delivery a friend's news papers while he's on holidays. Theresa and KW come tomorrow to pick up Mist and Tabs and take them to Nelson on Sunday for a week of Kootney fun.



Have my name on a waiting list for a bulldogge. Faith and Nitro's pups. From a breeder in Calgary. They are sooo expensive but sooo cute.
I finally made first comment on the Globe and Mail. I commented on one of my all time favorite animators: Hayao Miyazaki. He has a new movie out in Japan. The girls and I are eager for it to hit Canada.
Kelowna is becoming the leading centre of dance. The summer school intensive that has always been held at the Banff School of Fine Arts (sponsored by the Canadian School of Ballet) has moved to Kelowna permanently. So all you little aspiring Ballerina's (Nemnuts) shall be in their element living in Kelowna. And yes, my girls attend the Canadian School of Ballet-kelowna. So I am excited for them too.
PS I'm trying to post super regularly for my readers. You're all welcome.

Those are beautiful pics of the girls at the stables. I think an acreage would look good on you guys :-).

I'm glad you used your own name when commenting on the G&M. Better than all those others that use names such as Canadian from Canada...

You are super girl! Thanks for the posts!

I agree with you about the identity problem .... wonder how many of my decisions were result of that

Thanks all...PJ thought I was nuts using my own identity. But I'm a writer, I like everything I write to have my real name on it--you never know who will read it!
