Summer!





As some may have noticed there has not been much activity here lately.
Summer came...
And after a looong winter (as I am sure you can understand) staying outside has been much more tempting than sitting in front of the computer!

Today we had +28C/82F, and what could one do after a day at work?
Go bathing with the horses of course!


My daughter even took on a swim suit.
I kept my riding breeches on, but rode without shoes. No sense in keeping them on, as they get soaking wet anyway!



Fame did not see the point in standing still at all.



All the plants have been growing like crazy lately.
Unfortunately, also the nettles....they are reaching toe height!

A JOURNEY FROM SPRING TO SUMMER

I have some pictures to share from the last month, so here they are.
We start end of April:




The first flowers has come.


I just love that intense, blue colour.


The melting snow feeds all the waterways.

Beginning of May:


I had a lovely ride with my daughter.


Riding in a carpet of spring flowers:

Mid May:


Above: a grey day, but I just love those cloud formations over the mountains.



Above: Ferns starting to come up. Looks like an alien invasion!


Fame is contemplating the fields turning green. Pasture time soon?

We also once again had a visit from Wiola and Kari from Aspire Equestrian Riding Academy.
Another super training weekend - thanks guys!
My daughter has a friend visiting, and they are making Texmex for tonight, so I had some minutes over.
Can't sit here. I think I will chill with a beer in the sun.

Lovely pics as usual! Lucky you, it's such a long time since I went swimming with my horse.

Love all your pictures. Such a beautiful place. It's so nice to have warm weather again here too. Enjoy your beer!

So happy to hear you are having fun. I kept checking your blog and wondering how you and Fame were doing--though I did see on another blog that you were hosting a clinic so knew you were OK. It is raining here again--when its "supposed" to be sunny--we have had a very cold, wet spring. I wish I were in sunny Norway with you right now. Having a beer on the porch (!)

I almost sigh with relief seeing the beautiful green in your landscape again. You shared your cold winter so well.
We have terrible drought over here. Everything is dust. I loved seeing the water.

So glad you've been out and about and enjoying the OUTDOORS! It looks fabulous!

From beautiful white to beautiful green - just lovely!

I chuckled when Fame took it upon herself, to censor the photo of your daughter, in her bathing suit! Hope your towers did not get stung...we use the singing nettle here, for allergy relief...they work fantastically. Capsule form, of course!

I'm late here because of your same reasons...spring-ish summer here, after a"lockdown"due to horse virus scare. So staying indoors, to post, not happening!

Love that misty mountain range view as well as all of you forrest paths. You are blessed with (as I) some fantastically wonderful riding opportunities. I rode with my sis yesterday, thought of you and your daughter...special times that make the heart sing!

Have a cold one, cheers to more times as these!

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods placed us all into our own corners of the globe. As such for thousands of years we spent time and reproduced with out own kind.
This is why mobilty/travel, biracial unions/offspring and partaking of other cultures is a sin::::
Each has it's own elements of disfavor, and by experiencing other cultures you are being exposed to these disfavors, which if people may adopt will make their state even worse than prior.
The United States has been considered a "melting pot" where rejects from around the world were sent when kicked out of their motherland.
Remember, this concept of cultural diversity is an element of the liberal platform the gods used to promote societal decay, revealed on the map with the "beast" that is the SanFranciscoBayArea and the spread of social deterioration that spread to the rest of the country and eventually to the entire globe.

Ronald Reagan spent the communist block into submission with defense buildup, and in the process increased the National debt from $1 trillion in 1980 to $6 trillion when he left office.
W charged both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to the national debt, honest numbers to come.
The gods used W to initiate the "Great Recession" with deliberate legislation/regulation changes, allowing the sub-prime fiasco and corporate irresponsibility/criminal behavior which led to the multi-trillion dollar stimulous package, pocketted by Republican friends and donors::::$5 trillion charged to the National credit card.
This corruption is one element of evil in the party of good. War mongering is another.
Damned if you do, Damned if you don't::::With the Democrats you subscribe to social decay via liberlism, which WILL lead to the Apocalypse. Republicans are being used by the gods to bankrupt the United States, ultimately motivating people to the point of "desperation prayer" once anarchy presides::::Punishment designed to correct your behavior.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
