Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop

My favorite Christmas movie right now is Rare Exports,  a Finnish movie about a small community of reindeer hunters who have the misfortune to live near the mountain ‘home’ of the real Santa. This movie is a dark comedy and is both subtly and occasionally laugh out loud funny. I love the way that rural people aren’t shown as idiots, like they normally seem to be in movies made for distribution in the US. Also the movie shows a lovely relationship between father and son.

Just to warn you, there are naked old men in Rare Exports. Here is the trailer.

I also wanted to mention the Saint Nick movie. This is a fun horror set in Amsterdam. Saint Nick comes back to terrorize the people of Amsterdam when a full moon falls on December 5th. There is a running joke about the situation hurting the Dutch relationship with Spain, since the local legend says St Nick takes bad children to his castle in Spain.


For my horsey friends, St Nick has a lovely horse.

I will be giving away an Amazon gift card, a beaded bracelet and earing set and a copy of my Christmas story Rejoice: a Burden.  To enter let me know what your favorite holiday movie is!

Sorry for the long delay!

     I was out of town with work. Every year the company I work for does a few retail shows. It is sort of an odd thing, you would think that they would be a heap of fun. I mean you go someplace and there are heaps of shopping opportunities and there are clinics about just about every type of horse and riding styles. 
     Mind you, what we see is our booth.
     Even with that it can be a heap of fun. This year we had an awesome group. The two new people Gabby (a professional photographer, who I totally didn't get a website for) and Mel from Evening Star Arabians were both easy going and good traveling companions. Nothing to awful happened beyond issues with the credit card machine and unfortunately that is kinda normal.
     Rhonda from Horsey Set Net stopped by and took this pic of me (it’s a good pic! I can be hard to photograph) with my helmets.
     I got to run through the breed barn and took pics of four breeds. You will be seeing most of those pics in the next month or so. 
     For the first time in what feels like forever I had fun at a show. I even came back with an idea for a business.
     The trick to having a good time is good company - and we had super good company this time. That said, it still takes me what feels like a billion years before I come back to normal after a show. 
     Next post will be part of a blog hop and then there will be two posts about the Arab horse. That breed is way to much to handle in one post, so you will get a bonus post!

Well not a vacation, but more of an excuse.

It's that magical 'I just can't get anything done' time of the year, but I'll be back at it soon.
