When I left school, the sky was dark and threatening. By the time I hit the highway, the rain was pouring down.
Then I started to worry because there had been reports of thunderstorms nearby and the Boys were out in the pasture--if they so chose to be. When I got home, they were. They were "sheltering" under the trees at the top of the hill. Great....*sigh* Just where I'd want to be during a thunderstorm.
I called them in, fed them and closed the pasture gate. Then I went in to have a bite to eat, figuring the forecast that the rain was passing was just about right.
I went out in about an hour to do some lungeing. I caught Chance, took him into the arena and managed about five minutes of work when it started to rain down big, cold drops again. I just made it back into the barn when it started to come down fairly heavily again.
I guess it rained off and on again until dark. I had to give up. It was not only wet, but chilly.
If it stays nice today, I will go out for a woods ride when I get home, and I'll probably have to put the Bug Armor on whomever I ride. Usually this time of year it's nice in the woods, but this time, I have a feeling the mosquitoes will be out in force. They ruin everything.
It's my birthday today, but I don't have any special plans. However, if I do think of something celebratory, I will certainly let you all know. Meanwhile, I will just grow older quietly and not as gracefully as I might like to . *G*
