All In A Day Of Working

Sometimes, Jeannie and I have gaps of time in between appointments.

Typically, we go to eat.

So we did.

Then we ended up with another gap of time.

So we went to check on a few of her horses. And got stuck in the mud.

Picture, if you will:

Two self-appointed princesses telling the other to get out and push!

Uh, not happening.

We called for help and after a good chewing out, the car was rescued.

And we went back to work!

I love days like this!

Jeannie is suppose to go back and fix this. Ha, ha! We all had a good laugh over that one!

We were asked, "When the ground went, squish, squish, why did you keep going??"

Can you believe Lady is 30?

Happy is going to be bred. I didn't recognize her from her show days! What a difference hanging out makes!

Snow gone. Gloomy sky gone. Had to take a pic.

Women In Their 40’s

As I was walking to the office today, (always a great time to think and create in my mind), I thought about a conversation Jeannie and I had a couple of weeks ago.


We were discussing our ages since my birthday was  coming up. Jeannie turned 50 this year. I asked her if it bothered her to turn 50 and she said no, turning 40 was harder for her. Turning 30, for me, was extremely hard. I don’t think I was quite ready to let go of the 20’s. However, turning 40 was very exciting for me. In fact, I was telling people a whole year ahead I was 40; that’s how much I was looking forward to it.


(Did I just hear some hhhhmmmm’s go through your minds?)


I’ve always enjoyed  hanging out with older people and my friends are typically quite a few years older than I am. I remember during my mid to late 20’s, a couple of friends and I talking about, what else, our ages. (seems to be a pattern here.)


My friends were in their 40’s already at the time. I remember one friend telling me, “There’s something about being a woman and turning 40. You start to gain more confidence. You speak your mind more freely instead of holding back. It’s just different. I can’t really explain it but you’ll understand when you’re our age.”


I never forgot that conversation. 


During the conversation Jeannie and I had, she made the comment that she thinks when women enter their 40’s, they become even more beautiful and she believes the inner confidence is what radiates on the outside. (sound familiar? favorite song.) 

I think Jeannie summed it up. There is something about becoming older and having a confidence life brings you. 


 Do you think women become more 
confident as they get older?
