This sunset was taken the Friday of youth retreat. Just love how the sun looks! Thursday was an extremely cold day so I decided to not ride. Friday, my plans were to ride with Sarah and have a chance to talk with her. Well I find it so amazing how God works! I had talked to my dad about some things and I had wanted to buy a dog but it never worked out. Some people we know, had a Lab female for sale and my sister, Rose Mary, thought she would be perfect. We talked to Dad and he ok'd the whole idea. So instead of getting to ride with Sarah Friday evening, we went to pick up Lucy, my dog. The really neat thing is that she is born the same day as Freedom (April 25th, 2010) only a year earlier.
Lucy and I today
Saturday, I had the Horse World Expo. I had stayed at my cousins the night before, so that instead of having to pick me up in the morning, we could leave right from their house. It was so much fun hanging out with my "second" family all day. I feel like I learned a lot of things and I know there are some things I am definitely going to implement in Freedom's training, as well as Daisy's. After getting home from the Expo around 7:50 or so in the evening, I wanted to take Lucy to get a bath. We have a place to wash dogs at the car wash and Lucy really, really stank, so Mom and I took her for a bath. We dried her mostly there but since she wasn't totally dry, we left her here in the house while I went to the barn and did the chores. She was waiting for me at the door when I got home. She was nice and dry so out to the barn she went :)
Today I was able to get some pictures of Lucy. Since I haven't been able to catch up on my sleep since the youth retreat last weekend, I took a nap this afternoon. I was planning to drive one of my horses today but after my nap it was rainy/snowy, so no driving :) Hoping to catch up on my sleep next weekend a bit but we shall see. I have a lot of 9 hour days coming up this week so it will be a bit of a longer work week but I am looking forward to it!
Hope you have a wonderful evening and a great week! Hoping to ride a bit this week and next Sunday, Daylight Savings Time begins so that means more DAYLIGHT in the evening!
