Or, I guess at this point, close to was a new day. None the less, it was new and it was great.
Sorry for the bah humbug dramatic attitude yesterday. It was what it was. Enough of that though, because today was amazing.
First off, yesterday evening, after dark, I could not help but be shaken out of my blah mood. I was walking out to the barn for my last check before calling it a night. The first thing I noticed was all the fireflies. I remember having them at the farm when I was younger, but then they disappeared. Now that we are coming out of this drought, they are coming back! I almost fell on my face for staring into the dark at them. Then I noticed how cool it got after the dog rolled in. Before walking out there, I closed the windows and turned on the air conditioning because it was just warm enough. Go figure!
This morning I woke up early. I fed the horses in my pajamas before coming back in to brew some coffee. A quick coffee (…I put ice cream in it because why not. And well, I didn’t have any milk or cream) and breakfast (something I picked up from a Mexican bakery earlier this week, yum!) and I was off to get dressed.
I tacked up my Cheetah girl in a hurry and we were off. Boy oh boy was it a great ride. I know this is logically probably not the case, but is sure seemed like she felt the same as I did about our ride yesterday. We were just feeding off of each other’s energy. Another go figure. Today, I focused on not doing that. Breaking the cycle. Staying relaxed. She stayed relaxed pretty much the whole time. We both finished happy and proud. I shoved her full of treats and turned her back out with the heard.
I had a second cup of coffee while I worked Chance in the round pen before getting Ike out. I spent forever getting burs out of Ike’s mane. Seriously, dude. Need to stop playing in the burs. He has the most hair! Anyway, we had a nice, relaxing bareback ride all around the farm. He is such a good boy all the time.
Everything must come to an end, as they say, and the same is true about this weekend. When I told Darcy it was time to load up and head home, this was her reaction…
And that was that. Darcy is passed out and Monday awaits.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! What did y’all do?!
Walk in love, dear readers!
