sun was out. So, this means that when it’s eight that it will be seven p.m. So, it appears that there will be less daylight at 7 a.m. in the morning and more daylight at 7 p.m. in the evening.
So yes, they got up at 7 a.m. And as usual, Alys did the outside chores and Pete made breakfast. Me, I ate my breakfast, earlier than usual, but this was okay with me.
Alys got out real early and took Tinni for a walk, this time without me. This was strange. I did hear Pete say that he’d be going skiing later, and that he’d take me with him. I was glad to hear this – I haven’t been out much lately because Alys has been road riding the horses. Her explanation to me has been that the trails are snowed in.
I was wondering if my outings were going to be a thing of the past. I asked Ryder about this and she said she thought not, although it might be some time before either of us saw trail time.
Alys took Hrimmi for a road ride then Alys and Pete took Raudi and Tyra for what seemed to me to be a very long road ride. They seemed pleased when they returned; once again, Alys was raving about how good all the horses are. There was then some discussion about their doing a long horse trek this summer. They didn’t mention Ryder or me going along. I am assuming that they will take us because in the past, they’ve taken a dog along. Two dogs, hmmm, well, if I have to, I can kill and eat gophers or something. I just don’t want to be left behind.
I was surprised to hear Alys say that she’d also go skiing. This is because Alys instead goes horseback riding. But she was done riding, and I guess she decided to accompany Pete.
Pete was really pleased that Alys decided to come with, just like Alys was pleased that Pete decided to do a road ride. I noticed right away that Alys took great joy in watching us dogs run and chase one another. She did, towards the end, get tired – she told Pete that because she was dehydrated that she didn’t get her second wind. I think that she will do more skiing this month, but of course the next time bring water.
We got home at 5 p.m. It was still daylight. Hoorah, I say, for daylight savings time.
