Instead of thinking about any of that nonsense I've been doing this instead:
Riding Buddy is finally getting some saddle time with Tessa and they are getting along very well.
Getting used to Tessa's loooong strides and her silly quirks takes a little time.
Tess is very intelligent, honest and always willing to try, she also tries very hard to communicate with her rider and she gets frustrated if the rider doesn't understand. RB and Tess have been learning to talk to each other and they are starting to have some nice conversations.
When the sun come out, I work on this job....I can't believe I already have to paint my new house.
If I'm not painting, I'm finally finishing the battens on the woodshed.
And hiking with my dog.
And even sitting on my couch reading a book at night. Gasp!
And when all that gets tiresome, I take a little break for some of this...
Last winter, Ben's cart got an extreme makeover. It had a few issues that made me a bit nervous about using it so my friend Dave took it to his place to do some repair work. It was a good thing too as one of the shafts broke in half when he unloaded it from the trailer. He took it all apart and replaced the shafts and gave it a very spiffy paint job. I bought Ben a proper harness and I think he looks quite handsome in his "new" gear.
And now, my couch, and the rest of my staycation, is calling me again. Maybe I will even get around to actually writing. Maybe. If i avoid looking at anything else on the Internet.
