And I Am "Over Picnicked"
The storm brought lots of rain, but minimal winds around here anyhow, so we really did luck out. And, since it has been so dry, the ground held and soaked up the water really well, so I don't seem to have a lot of mud.
It was quite a nice morning too, but I had to go to church. Then since it was homecoming and the first Sunday of the new church season, we had a picnic after the service.
My neck was bothering me quite a bit giving me a headache so when I got home, I took a short nap, then headed out for the second picnic of the day. I spent a good hour in the swimming pool there working out my kinks, making my neck feel better, and then did the usual picnic things. I ate a lot of good salads and side dishes, had some sweet corn, roast pig, and a nip of wine and beer.
All in all it was a fun gathering. Oh, yes, I tossed a practice game of horseshoes, had a ringer, a leaner, and several other shoes that would have scored points if we'd been playing for real.
Guess my equine experience pays off--or at least all my shoeing adventures had some effect??
I guess you can tell by now I didn't ride. Thank goodness for the swim as it seems to have fixed my headache. I'm not sure riding now would do me any good. I'll go for an adjustment tomorrow and hopefully ride when I get home--weather permitting. (It is supposed to be cooler....I can only hope.....)
