This morning was foggy. I mean very foggy. Just like pea soup.
I took both of these pictures at 7am and needed my camera on the ‘night-time’ mode. Luckily it burned off quickly. It turned out to be a marvelous day. Very sunny and 78 degrees.
I dropped Wee One off at his new daycare by 10 am. He did not want to take off his coat. I visited for a few minutes, then left when he was busy playing with the 2 other toddlers. I ran to IGA, raced thru picking up my 5 items, then I drove back to my little community, and voted. No Lines either!!
I was in the saddle by 11:15 am.
I rode until about 1 pm
View from the saddle, The Old Guy’s ‘scaredoo’. At least no more cockleburs!
My throat strap seems to have disappeared off this bridle. It is not a good idea or really all that safe to ride without one but I did …… any other horse, I would have taken one off another bridle or fashioned one out of a piece of leather.
I rode with a halter and lead along with his bridle. Sometimes I do this because I never know where I might end up and I might need to tie The Old Guy up somewhere. I once had a bridle that converted into a halter, they suck by the way….
I stopped by my neighbors The Goat Ranchers and picked up some cheese. I was sad to hear that they were getting rid of many of their goats and going to stop selling their milk and cheeses. Sigh……
Scooter rode excellent. We scared up another covey of quail. I think they startled me a lot worse than him.
It was a good day. I am glad Wee One likes his new daycare. Son #1 got himself a detention for 2 days because of yakking when he was not supposed to. But he redeemed himself with the teacher who gave it to him-so no detention tomorrow. You see, detentions that are given to athletes must be done in the morning, before 8am. I had to have him at school this morning at 7:45 am.
Son #1’s friend called and asked him to go eat pizza, so instead of the ribeyes I was going to cook, Wee One and I munched on a grilled Italian chicken salad and steamed green beans. It was yummy!
Hubby has been drilling a new well for his company in Kansas since yesterday. So it is just me and the boys, he’ll be home tomorrow night. He wanted to make it home this evening but the drillers did not get some task accomplished.
I am kinda liking the whole bed to myself and no snoring…………just a little bit tho.
