Hot, Hot. Hotter than Hell.
Summer is here. Finally. I had a sneaking suspicion we would probably skip spring. We pretty much did. I can’t complain too much; I’ve been riding up until the heat index climbed to an unbearable 106 degrees yesterday. It’s sitting right at 98 right now; but lacking the humidity of yesterday. And this is when the wind is welcome. The temps are supposed to be a little more reasonable this coming weekend.
I logged a couple hours of saddle time the day before the bad day. It was bad that day, too, but I thought I could ride it out. Windy said, “Huh?” After the first mile, I tended to believe her. It probably wasn’t a good idea.
The holiday weekend has us going all over. John has family in town from different parts of the country; and a family dinner tonight. There is an extended family softball tournament and another family event on the 4th of July. Hmm. What to do: ride my horse or play softball? I am so not cut out of the sports cloth. Easy answer. Ride my horse. I’ll go to the dinner tonight and the firecracker event on the 4th (even though I really, really, really do not enjoy watching backyard fireworks). And truth-be-known, I work full-time to get these 3-day weekends. I don’t think it’s out of line to spend some of it doing what I want to do. You know? As I get older, I become more selfish with my time.
Happy Independence Day!
To my fellow Blogger friends who use Blogger.com. I need some help.... I usually write my post in Word 2007 using the "new blog" function. I then save, click on "publish" or "publish to draft". This function has stopped working. Simply says "cannot publish this post" while in Word. I get the same response whether I am using my desktop or laptop. I have checked the accounts and it is showing the correct one. I tried to look online for a solution; seems others have this problem but can't find a fix. Anyone know?
