I kept intending to write yesterday’s blog, but I was already too deep into “Big Sky River” to focus on anything else. Lots of prayers and no hay deliveries or appointments or sick horses helped. And I must credit going low-carb with part of this burst of energy I’m enjoying–it’s quite amazing.
I’m certainly no expert on the new lifestyle, so I’m trying to learn all I can. If I’m going to succeed at this, and stick with it long-term, I know I need a varied menu. Starting with George Stella (QVC is where I first saw him) cookbooks–and a week of pre-made low-carb meals to help me get the idea.
I’m also “studying up on my rodeo”, per my stepmother and some of you–and I’m LOVING it. Walker Parrish, the hero of the next book, “Big Sky Summer”, is a rodeo contractor by profession, so I need to be up on the lingo–and certainly the rules of the game. Funny–I was around rodeo a lot in my earlier life, then there was a long gap before I started attending to National Finals Rodeo in Vegas every December. Some things have definitely changed in the interim. Starting with a book titled, “Fried Twinkies, Belt Bunnies and Bull Riders”. Don’t you love it? Why just the name of that book inspires me!
So today is, of course, a writing day, and I figured if I got into that story before I blogged, there would be another one missed. So here I am.
Thanks, as always, for your comments. I really appreciate them, and you, and I will dip in and answer a few as time allows.
Time for breakfast.
