It rained on my entire drive to the barn. Granted, it was light rain, but it was steady. Maryann was gung-ho and still wanted to ride. Barbara was out teaching. And me, I really wasn’t in the mood to ride in the rain and I was afraid it was going to get worse. Instead, I decided to give PJ a bath and clean my tack.
Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I had rescheduled my lesson for Saturday and started to spray PJ with water, the rain stopped. Maryann got in a wonderful ride, and I missed out on a ride without bugs.
My luck hadn’t been all that great today, anyway. First, I got stuck behind a street cleaning machine, then a little old lady driving 10 mph below the speed limit, then a big mower that blocked the entire road. Add on that a sinus headache. Boo hoo me, but I wasn’t up to ride anyway. I knew that if I had decided to ride it would have poured in the middle and since I didn’t, it was beautiful. Oh well, my lesson is now Saturday morning, hopefully my mood and the weather will both be improved.
