hunterseat df: Hunter Seat Equitation is a division that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider. The riders can be judged both over fences and on the flat.

Although true, hunters DO eat, at least the skilled ones do, my name derives from the world of horses.

And because the word hunter is in my name, people automatically think I'm a guy. Not even close.

Whenever I meet someone named Hunter I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying "That's my name, too!"

9. Long Strange Trip

Wow. I'm nearly exhausted. Maybe all that ditch digging has caught up with me. (Did I mention the ditch digging?)
The wind! MERCY! I worked inside yesterday morning, getting things caught up to accommodate the window washer. He did a great job, btw. And I got a lot of things done. Finished the blinds, got boxes moved to the garage. But the wind started up in full force by afternoon which put a halt to my ditch progress. It continued through the night (the wind) and on into the early afternoon....

The house has progressed. Please God, let me list it very soon.
  • Irrigation busted pipe (froze) was repaired.
  • The 2 story section has a new roof.
  • Laundry water heater is wired in.
  • Car and wonderful teardrop camper trip configuration has begun.
  • Coolant system flush will happen tomorrow.
  • Gray water leach field work is underway.
I took the dogs for a short road trip to the hardware store. Pretty soon I'll add the cat into the mix. The good news is, the small crate will fit on the...

Well, it's raining. Been raining for going on two weeks off and on. Big deal? Yes, very. It's been two years since we've seen any to speak of. Of course it has to be when I'm getting this house ready to sell. Dampness. blah. Still, the irrigation system has a broken pipe so it's a total blessing considering I'm procrastinating fixing that.

In the past I packed while the guy cleaned. It worked. Now, since I left him on the east coast, I'm stuck doing both and, turns out, I'm not a...

Christmas Break in the Insanity

Posted 12-28-2021 at 12:39 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

Not really, life is still insane-ish. But the break was more laziness than anything else.

How much junk food can one person eat without blowing up like a house? I have a rule which is to only bring into the house what I don't mind eating in one sitting. Seriously. If a large pack of cookies is $2 and a pack of 2 is $1.50, I'll grab the pack of 2 EVERY TIME.
My neighbor loaded me up and it is my holiday obligation to eat all the cookies. It occurred to me to throw some...

The horses arrived safely in Tennessee. Takes a big load off my mind and out of my bank account.
The house is freshly painted outside and nearly all of the inside repairs are done.
I'm thinking a couple of long work days and I'll have everything completely packed or thrown away. Then to finish cleaning. The blinds will kill me, there are so many of them and they're DUSTY.
Closer and closer! Maybe for Christmas I can have it listed. Great present!
ps. I took the dog kennel...
