Hello fiends!  I wanted to tell you about a program I have been participating in.  I have been taking part in a hippotherapy group for veterans!  I got once a week to a therapeutic riding center and work with a horse.  The horse I work with is Madison:

.Madison is 16 hands high -- that is TALL!  I have learned a lot.  I now know how to do tack (put on a saddle and reins).  I rode in an English saddle for the first time ever!  We have done leading, lunging, and an obstacle course.  We have also done star/stop practice and we trotted this past Monday.  We will finish with a trail ride in two more weeks.  That will be my last day there - they close for July/August because its too hot for the horses and the therapists!  Here is a picture of me on Madison:

If you ever get the chance to do hippotherapy I certainly recommend it.  Its very relaxing to work with a horse!

Hello friends!  I just realized that I have not shown you guys my garden!  I can't believe it!  This is the first year that I have had a real garden and more than one or two plants.  I am loving it; I might be addicted.  I decided to try out a straw bale garden this year.  Its a real thing - I am not crazy.  Want more info?  Check out this site:     Anyways, here are some pictures from when I started the garden:

I already at one of my zucchinis:

And here are some pictures from about two weeks ago:
Jalapeno Peppers
spinach, cilantro, and broccoli 

this plan actually just died thanks to some squash bugs 

purple bell peppers

I Love seeing the progress my veggies are making.  I also have quite the collection of container plants too!  I just cant get the picture to load correctly so that I can show you!  I will keep you guys posted on the garden progress.  Do any of you garden?
