I basically got up every morning, went outside, and didn't come back in until supper time. My plan was to take each day as it came. I even went out to the pasture and sat to see how the horses would react.
|what are you doing down there? do you have carrots? |
It started off great with the obstacle clinic. Not only was Carmen an angel but I had so much fun hanging out with Karen and Paula. There was much laughter. As a bonus, a young girl was offering to clean out our stalls at the end of the clinic for a small fee. We all jumped on that one!
|fun was had by all and it got me off to a good start for riding at home|
I rode almost every day and squeezed in a couple lessons.
I got some projects done, like painting poles that had almost all the paint worn off.
|Ed: why are the tips of Guinness' ears red|
Guinness: I WAS HELPING
When I wasn't riding or puttering I sat on the deck and read. I think I read 3 books while I was off. It was glorious.
|The little women are providing lots of entertainment. They |
come running every time they see me FOOD!!!!
Ed and I took a day and drove over to the valley to tour around and have lunch in a lovely little restaurant. It was a fun day.
The last two weeks were exactly what I needed. I returned to work Tuesday (Monday was a holiday) feeling rested and recharged. And the best part? After this week I am also off next week. But don't tell Carmen!
|Carmen: Vacations are hard work. Somebody save me|
