Do What You Gotta Do

I made a quick trip out to the farm yesterday after work to fit in a ride and check on things. I even got to see the sunset as I left. A great thing under any circumstance, even this one.

Hurricane Harvey is headed this way and we are expected to get more than a bucket load of rain. And wind probably. Probably a lot of wind. Hopefully not more than that, but there are some reports using some very big and strong words. There is still a lot of time between now and when it gets here (I say that, 24 hours now), but it is going to be a lot of something. Only time will tell how much and how bad.

But, in the mean time, I had to get a ride in since I knew I would likely not be able to this weekend. Hey, a girl has to to what a girl has to do. All three of us in this case. Nothing like a good bareback ride to put your mind at ease, even if just for a time. Certainly helps that my Cheetah girl was amazing.




This is how we wait for storms here in Texas. Try to stay calm and be ready to act when need be. It does not matter that I am used to this, having been born and raised here. I have been through many hurricanes and my family many more than me. Some bad and some not so bad. I still worry. I am a worrier. Mostly for the horses since I do not live where they are. Then there is the whole wind and flooding and falling trees thing. Possible tornadoes. Loss of power. Water.

Just got to ride it out. Leg on.

What? Nobody else says that? Oh, well, you get the gist.


No need to worry for not. What is going to be will be. We do need the rain.

Say a little prayer for this southern part of Texas, will you?

Walk in love! More news to come as I have it!

  1. I slipped in a ride this morning and I will tomorrow morning as well. I got good at riding in the rain while I was in Colorado! Be safe and watch for limbs

    1. I so appreciate it. It’s. A lot. We are holding steady and have no water in my parents’ home. There is still a lot of time left. I feel bad for not updating, but it’s just not at the top of the list at the moment. I so appreciate you thinking about me and saying so! Know that we are good! Neighbor at the farm is watching out for the horses and cows. If I could be there, I would, but too much water.

  2. I always take the time to ride whenever I can. I hope you guys are all safe in Texas. My family is in Houston with their little boys and trying to wait out the flooding. Scary.

    1. Thank you so much for the comment! She is pretty cute, if I do say so myself…not biased at all! Storm is BAD. Stuck here but safe and blessed with no water in home. Also have power and running water.
