I did as good as I could do, attempting to keep my mind off of this, by getting ready for this weekend. I was cleaning tack when Sarah showed up, with multi-colored braids bands in hand. We spent considerable time braiding Hrimmi’s and Raudi’s manes and forelocks. All this horse stuff, lately, has reminded me of being twelve years old again. All we’ve been doing is playing with horses and riding them.
After, we put the straps back on the washed blankets. Sarah sewed a cheek strap on Hrimmi’s bitless bridle and gave me an assist with a few other things.
Right after she left, two women came and got our empty water tank. They are going to take it to the lunch site and have it filled. This way, we will have water on hand for the horses during the ride.
We spent the evening in town, in the company of other horsey people. I had a wonderful time conversing with old friends and new. I am doing an experiment. Any time I have a negative thought about anyone, I put an X through it and then think of something else. Actually, today, after x-ing out a few thoughts, I immediately began singing. I will keep doing this and see where in life it takes me. I am tone deaf, so I ought not spend too much time singing around others.
A great day, the prelude to a great weekend. I am simply going to let the good times roll.
