When we left off I was enjoying a bonus day of vacation in sunny but chilly Florida. When I got up to go ride Thursday morning it was 35 degrees with a feels like of 29. But still way better than CT which felt like 7.
|That ain't right|
Friday morning I was off to the airport to fly home to the tundra. I was not at all looking forward to the trip home.
|That looks cold.|
My drive home was uneventful though long due to being stuck in rush hour traffic. I couldn't wait to see the boys and then get my dogs! Everything was perfect when I got home, except for the mailbox. But I shoved it back upright so it's ok for now.
I spent Saturday morning running a few errands, and then grooming the boys for awhile. Heating the barn was such a good call. That 45 degrees felt perfectly comfortable while I was in there brushing away. They enjoyed every second, and OMG are they shedding! I know horses shed based on daylight hours, but for crying out loud boys, keep your hair!
After pony time and poo dumping, I realized I really had to unpack. I'd been home for three days! Such a sloth. So I did that, and then put together a puzzle my mom gave me for Channukah.
I had planned to finally buy groceries on Monday, but it was snowing again. The snow started as freezing rain and the roads were terrible, so I opted instead to eat some canned soup for dinner and buy food on Tuesday. And that's really all that's happening around here. If it stops raining early enough on Saturday, maybe I'll tack Rio up and walk him in the slush if it's not slippery. But probably not because that sounds dangerous. Guess we'll just have to wait and see!
How are you surviving the crazy temps? Have you had a January thaw yet? Anything fun and exciting to report?
