|Accurate. The "feels like" factoring in the humidity is even worse.|
|Also, who wants to try to ride this? Ick.|
|"Who me? Muddy? Noooo. It's a special clay mask, to exfoliate my skin." -- Ruby, probably.|
|Mmmmm, tequila is the best! (j/k we don't waste tequila on dogs!)|
|Friday was also a banner mail day. Thanks Nicole for this recommendation!|
|My mailman was definitely judging me.|
|Although half of them were truck parts. Which is... less exciting (although I do really need the truck fixed, so there's that).|
|One of the boxes was a TEENY DOG LIFEJACKET.|

Saturday morning I was determined to not be such a lazy bum, so I climbed on my bike and headed up to the barn. You know how people say "it's just like riding a bike" when they say something is easy to remember how to do? Lies. I feel like with the amount of riding I do (especially on green horses), I would be coordinated enough to manage the bike, but that was patently false. As long as I was on it and moving I did okay, but getting on and off was dicey, haha. At any rate, I made the trek out to the barn and back with no issues, and enjoyed some snuggling with Ruby in between. I'm not sure I could handle biking to the barn, riding, then biking back (yet!), so I think the plan for the near future will be to bike up there on days I plan to lunge or just groom, and then work my way up. I definitely need to get a slightly more comfortable seat for it -- even just the two miles had me a little sore in places I really don't want to be sore... lol.

Sunday morning I had a photoshoot with a local acquaintance and her horses. I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out, and I hope she is too! We spent a few hours in the blazing heat, which sapped me of any desire to do anything else for the rest of the day (other than edit photos and binge watch Dr. Who). I did bike up to the barn again last night, but the horses were already turned out for the night (and I didn't really have any goals other than just more exercise lol), so I just cooled off and then came home again. I can't really feel guilty about ignoring the horses when it's this miserably hot, because most of the time they're sweating just standing in their stalls. And we have no immediate goals or plans that I am working towards, so they can bum around and we'll pick up when the weather is nicer. Last week my work hours were a little wonky, but this week I'm back on summer hours, so hopefully I can get up early and get some work done before the blazing heat!
