After the last week of temperatures once again nearing the 100 mark, we suddenly have a cool cloudy day today and a forecast of 73 DEGREES AND 30% RAIN TOMORROW! What what! Maybe people are starting to think I am just a *tad* obsessed with the weather and weather forecast, but as a redhead I just don’t cope with the heat well and am always looking forward to comfortable days where things can get done, i.e. 80 degrees and lower. And fall is my absolute favorite time of year, with Christmas closely following! While I’m not ready for the full deluge, the winter onslaught, I wouldn’t mind 73 degrees and a little rain to take the edge off our serious summer dustiness. Its bizarre when the horses are getting thick coats–well Blaze and Sheza anyway, Desire doesn’t seem to be much of a winter coat grower–but when you brush them out you are still getting clouds of dust. Of course dust+water=mud sooo.. Nah, I really don’t mind fall and winter conditions, or spring of course. I’d rather be wearing muck boots scraping my muddy horse off than sweating just sitting still in the heat of summer. You can always add or remove layers for cooler weather comfort. You can only remove so much in summer before the place becomes a nudist colony and then guess what–you’ll still be too hot!
My obsessive compulsive blanket shopping must go into swing again, I started it a few weeks ago when the first cool spell hit but hey, there’s even a little chance of rain coming so I really should be finding Desire and Sheza blankets, right?!
Just realized this is my fourth post without a photo. My wordiness is overwhelming my drive for photography. Better take some new filly pictures tonight I guess!
