did a few non-agility things such as crunches and panther walk. And I praised her, ohh, did I ever praise her.
Pete then left for work. I came inside and worked on my Alaska State Fair eBook. Then I did my body awareness activities. I went back outside, and after cleaning the pen, I walked Tinni and Ryder down the road to Pat and Ray’s field. Tinni grazed and Ryder hung out as I picked high bush cranberries. I did some bushwacking on Tinni before heading home.
It was getting colder and more overcast. I picked a few berries that were up behind our guest cabin and then got Hrimmi out and rode her on our trails. She did okay – my balance was off because Pete’s saddle is too big for me. My not having a decent saddle is definitely a hinderance to the poor girl. Hrimmi is strong, powerful, but not super supple. I guess for now I will keep doing groundwork with her and have Pete ride her.
Lastly, after wavering a bit (it was starting to get dark), I got Tyra out. I quickly cleaned her feet, brushed her, and tacked up. And out I went again, for a third time today. Tyra is amazing – she has the physical edge and also is very self-assured. Once again, a tough call looms ahead – who do I ride in the 2018 CTR? Raudi or Tyra? Right now I have no idea. Raudi has the experience and Tyra has the right attitude.
Once inside, I ate dinner and then began typing up what I wrote this morning, an inclusion for my Alaska State Fair eBook. It’s about the dumpster fire. Then it happened, some sort of computer glitch, I had not saved the document that I was working on, so it was gone, just like that – into cyberspace.
Usually, when such things happen, I become unhinged for a while. This time, for only seconds. I was not very far along with this, it’s not that long, and I have a rough draft on hand, so tomorrow morning I will again type it into the document.
Crumb bum. As for the computer glitch part – I cannot make changes to the document in question. Pete will help me straighten this out. And I will retype the dumpster first story.
