Last Day of Summer

Apparently the company computer system underwent yet another upgrade over the past day and now, although I can access blogger, I can’t actually access my blog, which is needed to respond to comments!!!!!!! Grrr….although the situation is better than LAST time they started blocking stuff, as I couldn’t even get to blogger!
Endurance Granny – I think your question on part 3 “For Sale!” warrents its very own post, so I’ll get that up soon.
And now on to the the topic……Did you know yesterday was the last day of summer? Of course here in California “last” day of summer is relative as it’s 90 degrees today and will continue to be dry, sunny, and warm for at least another month or two.
To celebrate the start of fall…..yesterday I put on my helmet and ipod. Shimmied out of my jeans into a pair of light weight shorts and got Farley out of the paddock. Humming to my favorite old time tune playing on the ipod, I stepped up to the mounting block, shed my sandels and hopped on bareback. After admiring my very striking red/orange toe nail polish while walking around to warm up, I cantered around the arena on a loose rein, singing at the top of my lungs to whatever song was playing and enjoyed the feeling of Farley’s back and sides against my bare legs and heels.
And that is how I celebrated summer – in a way I never could have a year ago. The entire situation was only possible through the leaps and bounds Farley and I have made in our partnership over the last year.
What did you do?
