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 .

Playin' in Playa!

I had intended to be more present here, but I feel like of late I haven't had a lot to say. My muse was broken? Maybe , or maybe just tired. In any case I was away fro a bit to Mexico, I picked the perfect week to go as we had temps of -40 and beyond. For those on Imperial measure - 40C is - 40 F reallyfreakin cold!
 SO now I am back and while it has still been cold apparently the "polar vortex is finally on its way out. We came home to temps of -20 C so certainly colder than Mexico but way better than what we missed.
I haven't looked at the regular camera, and we didn't take as many pics as past years but here are a few highlights
 Feeling like a fat cat in a sun spot
 Post massage hair, don't care
 Dinner at Alux (restaurant in a Cenote)
 Our very adorable guests at the room 
 Coati, "give us all the foods!"

 Dinner with Heather and Marc, we swapped seating to prove after a week together we can still get along lol 
 Martin and I upping our selfie game
 Met our nieces Terri and Kristy with who were staying in Play at the same time

 Me and my guy
 Swam a few laps, I guessed the distance at about 150 meters,however a military fellow commented later I had underestimated and I actually did about 300 meters, a straight and true! Pretty pleased with the new elbow! 

My new friend. I am not typically a little dog person but this little charmer! I can almost hear hime saying "come Senora, we drink some tequila, we buy some shiny things!" 
The shop owner who he belonged to handed him to me while he showed Martin some things, so the pup and I just snuggled.

That's it for now, I will be back. Time to go see what you all have been up to .
Stay safe!

Looks like you guys had fun as always. So good to get away once in a while and I'm glad you and Martin can escape to warmer weather even if only for a week or so.
