Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Home Sweet Home , oops! forgot to post!

I started this post just after I got home from vacation, and then suddenly I had so much to do I never finished! SO we will start with this, and then hang in there I have lots of wonderful pictures! But they need a post of their own so I will have to do a second post for that. Also I have been on the computer,but busy taking a course and so only popping on and posting on Facebook. Which is silly because while it is easy it just isn't the same as the sense of connection we get blogging.The course I took was called  "Reconciliation through indigenous education" Tough going by times as the history of the residential schools is quite simply heartbreaking, but as I have said, if they could bear it , the very least I can do is to learn about it. Next course is called "Brain Story" about the lasting effects of trauma on the brain.
Anyhow here is a glimpse of Mexico 2017

I had a list of things to do while I was on vacation in Mexico 
Go to the turtle sanctuary 
Walk the sand bar out from the resort to view old town pvr 
Oscars bar( I go there every time, it is a beautiful oasis at the end of the waterfront market)
Pipi's restaurant (a favorite of many and a must do if you are in Puerto Vallarta)
Try one new thing 
Read life of Pi ( I have tried before and could not get into it )
Swim the lazy river not just float in a tube.

So how did I do? 
well other than in deference to a sore ankle I did not walk the peninsula( did however walk a heck of a lot,including the proximate 1/2 mile to dinner after the turtle release and then however far it was to the room)
I pretty much NAILED IT!
read Life of Pi, and 3 other books!( absolutely loved Life of Pi, such a departure from what I normally read, but well worht it ! 
chilled and relaxed
made it to Oscars,and Pips
tried a few new things, if I include the turtles ,the Panorama restaurant and swimming the lazy river.(3 laps around it total with the current,as I am not strong enough yet to swim against it. Though I do hold my own swimming against the current,just not gaining ground)
Overall I had a wonderful time, but as always, it had to end. Okay with me, I am happy to be home!
