Not much going on in our neck of the woods. The syrup making is done for the year. Now comes the BIG job. Gathering up all the buckets, taps, hoses, cook pan, and assorted accessories and washing them. But I usually do it at the outside hydrant and I REALLY don't want to do it 38° weather! Brrrrrr!! So....I will wait a couple more days, since it is supposed to be 65°!
I saddled Katie and we went for a short ride today! I used to ride all the time and spend hours in the saddle. But since I married and moved up here the Bloomtown, I haven't ridden hardley at all.
So now...when I get on a horse, I'm not as comfortable as I used to be. There is more of a fear factor. And I don't like that. I would guess that if I do it more often, the uneasiness will lessen. Lets hope so!
I found this today, and it says it all:
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming...WOW...What a ride!
