Whew, ready to write about my weekend! Saturday dawned cool and cloudy, a blessed change from some of the blazing hot cloudless days we'd experienced in the week leading up to it. DH was anxious to get out and about. I was less anxious (because my default setting on weekends is couch potato, haha), but amenable to doing something. His vote was riding bikes. My vote was riding horses. We compromised by going to a trail that caters to both!
|DH was off on his ride before we even finished tacking up, so I neglected to get a photo of him.
|Plotting about how to grab snacks on the road.
|A ladybug hitching a ride on Trigger's head.
We saw plenty of wildlife, including a fox running down the trail, and a turtle!
|Turtle friend. We very carefully walked around it, haha.
|Excited about, something? Maybe the lawnmower? haha.
After we got the horses settled, we headed over to my mom's for some chores around the house she needed help with, then back home for chores at our own house. It was a super long day, and Sunday I was a bit sore, so I was glad the rainy day gave me an excuse to bum around. It was the perfect kind of rain, super slow and steady, soaking into our dry, dry ground. My grass was so excited! The horses were also super tired, which was entertaining, as I got multiple pictures of yawning and sleepy ponies.
|Fired up the smoker for the first time this year, and made some EXCELLENT pulled pork. Yum.
|OMG CANNOT KEEP EYES OPEN.
|Also tired. Barn cat life is ROUGH.
|So much napping.
|All the napping.
|Sundays are for sleeping.
