I then figured out what my plans were. Remember, we are joined at the hip and at the heart. We cleared off the table and then had at it. I stoked the fire, put stuff on the window ledge to take outside, then first took Tinni for a walk and then knocked the ice cycles off of him. Pete continued to plow. I then shoveled off the tack room stairs and the trucks and the upper quadrant picnic table (so that Ryder can keep tabs on the road situation), and Pete continued to plow. I then got Tyra ready for a short video shoot. Pete stopped plowing and took the video.
I cleaned the horse pen and Pete plowed. We were both keeping an eye on the time because I had strength training at 3 p.m. and he had strength training at 4 p.m. We got out on time and had our respective lessons. This was Pete’s first time working with Ben. I watched as Pete did a series of goblet squats – Ben was really impressed. As I later told Pete, first of all, all the work he’s been doing here has kept his level of fitness up there. And secondly, he must have had good weight lifting training in the past because he had such good form. Poor guy – when he works too long it is like the weight of the world is on his shoulders.
I am not a very easy person to live with. I am impatient, opinionated, willful, and uppity. Pete is the one who is easy to live with. I often think he got the better end of the deal. And today, I was absolutely sure that I am right. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I’m always right.
It’s snowing again, meaning more plowing coming right up. He will get out there and do what needs to be done and not complain about it. Yes, I am a very lucky woman.
