Farm Girl

Happy June! I have had some fun moments and wanted to share another.  Did you all know I grew up a "city-fied cowgirl?" Yes, I was raised in a semi-rural farm area in So. California. It was where the suburbs and country met in a city! Crazy right?  Many neighbors has farm animals like horses, cows, lambs and chickens.  One of our neighbors has some geese and they where like a burglar alarm. Any time anyone walked near them the would honk very loudly. Honk, honk, honkkkkkkk!

We had the 4-H club in our community, too. For those that don't know, that is a club where you raise farm animals, create crafts or etc that are entered in completions at the County Fairs.  I raise a lamb and boy was he a handful. After months of training him, he did great at the fair and we won a ribbon. What a cool experience this was.

I was around lots of farm animals but horses were my favorite. My family housed a horse for a friend when I was young and later I got a pony.  As a little kid, I remember being so afraid to ride one but over the years, I learned to love it.

So, fast forward a few decades and we saw a horse riding place near one of my favorite malls. For a few years, I have wanted to stop by and recently we finally did. It was like a ghost town and hardly anyone was around.  So we just looked around.

Then last weekend, we stopped by again.  They had a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids and we enjoyed driving through and seeing all the live stock.  One thing I forgot about was the strong smell. LOL! When I got out and walked around, that smell was saying hello to my nose! LOL!

But overall it was fun to go down memory lane there. I am not sure I want to ride at this place but it was fun just being there.

Here are some pics from our adventure!



 

This horse had a friendly face. I think he was saying,  "Hey, can you be my friend?"

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!

The Golf Course Celebration

Happy June! This year is going so fast and I am holding on as it zooms by. Are you? Well, last month I celebrated my birthday and wanted to share one my favorite moments with you.  There is a public golf course that Ron and I started going to just to sit and relax.  After our first visit, I felt so peaceful and relaxed so we go there to chill out.

It is so funny to me that we don't even want to golf but sit around and watch all the people exercise. LOL! One day I would like to learn but for now just sitting around and soaking in the beauty is great for me.

Usually, we just park in front and enjoy the breath-taking views. But for my birthday, I wanted to have dinner in the clubhouse and look over the course.  I know you wouldn't think of having dinner at a golf course but it was a perfect choice.

Many of you may not know but I am a big sports fan. So as we dined we had several games on the TVs to watch. So we both were in heaven enjoying the games, the surroundings and best of all the great food.  Yes, the food was surprisingly terrific!

We had such a great time and look forward to going there again soon.  Here are a few of the pics from our adventure.

We were two happy and full customers!!!
Have a great day all!
