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!
