As I raced back home from Maizie's tennis clinic in Hershey this evening all I could think of was talking to my mom. She goes to sleep with the chickens so I can't phone or text to discuss today's ride. Nothing much happened other than it was my first ride in three days which is why I am so giddy.
Missing a day of riding messes up my head. I live to ride. I am so horse nuts and honestly, all I do is think and talk about horses. That wicked cold snap kept me grounded, but today I was back on Piedy! At Maizie's clinic I kept talking to the other parents about my ride today. I know they could care less, but they were stuck with me for two hours. Luckily, they are my friends. Poor people.
Now, I am home and mom is asleep. Our conversations are silly anyway. They are always the same. I say, "Aren't the boys just so adorable?" And she says, "Yes, I love them." Then I say, "So do I!" And then I say, "Didn't Pie go good today?" And she says, "Yes, he did. They always go good." And then I say, "They are the best!" And then we repeat this conversation 1000 times.
So many stories to tell here on the blog from the past three cold days - all probably the same as yours. No riding. Ugh. Frozen buckets and hands. Ugh. I found out a bank barn without hay upstairs isn't so warm. UGH!!!! Worry. Double Ugh. But, all is fine now - hooray!
And, my book got a shot in the arm over the three day period because I had lots of time to write. Yay! Above and below are three sneak peeks. The top is the title page and middle is an infographic spread I designed about the full circle journey the indie rider takes. The bottom is page 40 and 41.
I'm having a blast writing. The only thing I don't like about it is the sitting! I need a treadmill with my computer attached!
The book is looking good! How about sitting on one of those balls when you're writing, when you get bored you can roll around or do yoga stretches or something.ReplyDelete
Çit - Tel Örgü - Panel ÇitDelete
Panel Çit ve Tel Çit, Tel Örgü citbu.com'da
Panel çitler ilk etapta tel örgü sistemi içerisinde düşünülerek güvenlik amacıyla tercih edilmektedir. Özellikle de büyük şehirlerde bahçeye sahip olan kişilerin bahçe etraflarını Çit ile kaplatarak dışarıdan yabancı kişilere girişi engellemesi gerekmektedir. Sadece yabancı kişilere karşı değil kedi, köpek gibi hayvanların girişini de kapatarak bu alanı koruması gereken kişiler böylelikle daha rahat edecek olup kendilerini de koruma altına alacaklardır.
Tel örgüler daha çok güvenliğin sağlanması adına kullanılmaktadır. İç tarafı dış etkenlerden korumak amacıyla tercih edilen tel örgüler bu sayede daha çok alana yayılmakta ve çok fazla alanda tercih edilmektedir. Sizler de tel örgüleri kendinize ait olan tarla, bahçe, garaj, park gibi alanların çevrelerine inşa ederek rahatlıkla kullanabilir, uzun ömürlü olarak kullanma imkanına sahip olup yapılarınızı en iyi şekilde dış etkenlere karşı dirençli tutabilirsiniz.
Çoğu zaman çeşitli yapıların çevresine güvenlik önlemlerinin artırılması için belirli sistemler yerleştirilir. Daha güvenli yapıların olması, dışarıdan içeriye yabancı kişilerin ve hayvanların girmesini engellemek amacıyla tel örgü sistemleri içerisinde yer alan jiletli tel tercih edilebilr. Jiletli tel en çok talep edilen yüksek güvenlik önlemleri arasında yer almaktadır. Dikenli tellerin çok yeterli olmadını ya da daha tehlikeli bölgelere daha güvenli tellerin çevrilmesi amacıyla jiletli tellere her zaman için ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır. citbu.com
Hey GHM - that is a great idea!!!! Thank you! Seriously going to get one now!ReplyDelete
The book does look great. Are you designing it through a site that will then publish it?ReplyDelete
There is even a rolling seat frame that you can put the exercise ball into - I use it in my studio. No more hunchy shoulder / neck or back problems.
Yes - designing book through Artifact Uprising - love them! (Wish I was quick at embedding their link like you are - sorry).Delete
Thanks for the rolling seat frame link - so perfect!
Oh you are too cute! I love that your passion for horses is so strong. I've been feeling that way lately I've been waiting to hear back from someone about lessons and saddles for sale and it's killing me, lol! I keep pouring over tack catalogs, websites and Craigslist, lol! Stay warm and cozy! And congrats on the book!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ranch Girl! Hard to call you that - you will always be Pony Girl to me! lol! And now with your sweet little one and Ranch Boy and ponies galore - what a wonderful life!!! Enjoy!Delete
I'm so excited for your book (and graphics!)!! I too have those same conversations with poor Billy, and it just never fades! The frustration or triumphs or glee or proud moments, etc! I love it!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kristen!!! You inspire me! Also, I totally can see you telling Billy - just like me with Brian - until they are cross-eyed with boredom! So funny! Luckily, I can text you now anytime - totally love that!Delete
First things first: YOUR BOOK NEWS IS SO EXCITING!!!!! You are living a perfect life!!!! And as I was reading your post, I did actually think of Ernest Hemingway and his distilled, precise writing style! Once, after a visit to Key West, I returned home and wrote a short story about my adventures there in Hemingway style. Later when my boyfriend at the time read it, I was so embarrassed my face turned as red as a beet! But you've got it, girrrrl! I know what you mean about not riding. I can't ride every day, but when I miss a weekend, I do not feel like myself. I feel like I have been dithering and life (the real, horse life) is speeding by.ReplyDelete
PS When I think of your mom and how positively sparkly she is, I am so jealous! Maybe she can adopt me!
Can't wait to see the finished book! I've done some writing and keep hoping to do more, but just can't seem to find the time. Good for you for getting it done! Yes, get one of those balls to sit on--they were recommended to me, but not sure if the "holder" defeats the purpose of it since it would be held in place?ReplyDelete
I share your passion for talking about your horses--they probably dread asking me at work, "How are the horses?" I'll talk about the ponies until my co-workers eyes glaze over! Oops, sorry...on to the next subject.
I've got John to babble at--glad he shares my love of horses!
