    Personal Retreat Time

    I look forward to this every year. I get away for a few days by myself on my birthday. I'm headed out this afternoon and won't be back till Wednesday.
    I turn 50 on Monday.
    So far I'm doing things a little extra this year. Usually I go lock myself in a cabin on a ranch in AR but tonight I'm going to a pro-rodeo at our state fair grounds (I miss my days of barrel racing), staying in a historic hotel tonight then off to a cabin for a few days. I'll soak in a big claw-foot tub, have several meditations to read and experience, and a lot of lists to make, and do some hiking in the woods. I'm looking forward to recharging.

    I did a tiny bit of barrel racingyears ago and absolutely loved it. Then I got too fragile physically, and now I am more of a trailhorse kind of rider. But enjoy, and Happy 50th!

    Since I moved to the West 20 years ago I have come to love rodeos. We go every year and I love barrel racing. Have fun!

    Had a wonderful retreat! The rodeo was fun. I knocked another covered bridge off my list. Spent a lot of time alone hiking in the woods and making my "50 List". I ended up staying in the historic hotel the whole time and I think there was a permanent guest cat in my room. It liked to snuggle up to my back at night and kept waking me up. Thankfully ghost kittys don't leave allergy issues.
