Our weather has been a beautiful springy mix of clouds and sun, hovering at near perfect temperatures this past week. The only thing that could improve theses beautiful grass-greening days for us, agrarians, is a touch of moisture. An auspicious prelude to the season, despite the horror of Daylight Savings time. Whose idea was this springing forward nonsense anyhow?
Inspired by the changing seasons, a dear friend of mine started an exercise group for the local ladies. Several days a week, when my horse and I aren’t poking around the local feedlot, I meet the gals for a cardio kick-in-the-pants. Apparently, I have been kidding myself believing that opening and closing gates from horseback is a substantial workout.
Despite the aching muscles and weary lungs, the time I spend sweating with my friends is the highlight of my day. I don’t know if it is the laughter or the exercise, I feel more energetic and making good food choices is easier. On the other hand, it could be the money at stake. Quien sabe? Either way, I am grateful.
Another sign of spring, the crazy traffic on our local road. Take a look.
Traveling with children is always chaotic.
Like all tourists on rural roads, they got a little turned around. (Psst, Coop your lead rope is dragging!!).
It all works out in the end. It might have had something to do with Tank‘s expert help.
I hope this finds you all well. I’d love to know how you prepare for the changing of the season?
