Sheep-Ville, 2009 & 2010

I've decided that I don't need to play Farmville on Facebook as many others do. "Sheep-Ville" keeps me so busy that I simply wouldn't have the time for it! And I'll bet that Farmville does not provide the "strength training" and "aerobics" that Sheep-Ville has in store with projects like putting up fencing, worming sheep, and working puppies!

Today's the day for reflections on the past year and glances forward into the new. 2009 holds many memories, many sweet and some incredibly sad. I will remember 2009 mainly for three things: the year I lost Bid, the year I ran Coal in Nursery, and the year that I learned I could decide to be happy every day. In addition 2009 will be remembered as the year that Rime came to stay, among many other sweet things, including reunions with several dear friends, and my first trip to the USBCHA National Finals. The saddest memory of course, is losing Bid, but the sweet memories of working and living with him remain. Being happy is just something I am working on.

Plans for 2010 include more dog work, prepping Coal and me as a team to move into Open at some point, and getting Rime trained to the best of his ability. Of course we hope to have many more entertaining walks down to the park with Chiefie and the wonderful dog group which has befriended us there. Beyond that, we'll just wait to see what is in store.

Here's a quote from an article that I just read about declaring wishes with powerful intention.

"Each day we all have the opportunity to create our reality. Sometimes we can change the circumstances, other times we change our perceptions. We can use our thoughts, our energy, and our words to create an abundant life...Living appreciatively is more than an attitude of gratitude; it is an opportunity to bring the best of your past to create your future." - Saundra Davis

Happy New Year to all!
