The adventures of a woman as well as her horse!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, as opposed to its name, an actual poll, like with bit clicky buttons. It’s just a listing of five much more or less random concerns I’ve been publishing on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I like reading your answers, as well as it assists me get my week off to a great start.

1. What’s your preferred genre to read?

Hmm… Well, apparently, based on the last few books I’ve checked out (The Guernsey Literary as well as Potato peel Pie Society, Lilac women as well as lost Roses), these days it’s historical fiction.

But I’m likewise a sucker for cookbooks.

2. What time did you go to sleep last night?

A bit after 10 p.m. Hawaii time. Connor typically goes to bed between 8-9, however we’re staying in Waikiki for the next few days, as well as the hustle as well as bustle down right here is LOUD.

Back when I was a city woman as well as lived on one of the noisiest streets in San Francisco (Geary), I might sleep best with the vehicle horns, sirens as well as boisterous walkway conversations about people satisfying up with friends, however not so much anymore. now I’m like, “WHY DON’T Y’ALL just satisfy AT THE STARBUCKS!?”

3. select an eyeshadow: matte blue or metallic green?

Matte Blue! Navy, specifically. as well as I’d apply it with a wet angled clean as a liner.

4. Something you accomplished recently?

I rode a equine for the very first time, as well as woo-hoo — I didn’t autumn off! ?

5. Who’s the very best dressed person in your family?

LOL. It’s gotta be the baby, hands down. She’s got the most vibrant collection of tutus, as well as she isn’t scared of strong prints.

My (not so little) pony, Napoleon

I crossed one of the products off my container listing this trip. I lastly rode a horse!

It occurred at Kualoa Ranch, which is a big ranch at the base of the Ko’olau mountains on Oahu.

You understand the Jurassic Park movies? numerous of the jungle scenes from the different films were filmed there. ?


They have a whole lot of things to do at the ranch, like zip lines, ATV trips as well as horseback rides. I was truly amazed as well as amazed by the whole place.

Luckily, I was paired with the most gentle horse, a blonde young boy named Napoleon, who, I was told when we completed the ride, is the equine they provide to the elderly as well as children…

LOL! He was a fantastic listener as well as very sweet, as well as I may or may not have teared up a bit when I had to leave him at the end of the ride.

The many unexpected things to me about riding a horse?

How high off the ground it felt! holy crap, the ground seemed truly far away.

Also, the amount of core muscles involved. By the end of the ride, I felt like I had worked out for 60 minutes.

Lastly, exactly how unpredictable animals are. I don’t understand why, however I was amazed when Napoleon would do his own equine thing, like veer off to a patch of yummy-looking turf (which occurred only once… He was a great listener, however obviously this turf was as well tasty to resist).

It was one of the funnest things I’ve performed in ages, as well as it made me desire I had a equine friend to hang out with on the regular.

Have a fantastic rest of your day as well as a fantastic week. speak with you soon.
