The Spring that Wasn't

Oh don't mind me. Just sitting here sulking about the weather again.
In my defense, even the normally good-natured DH is incredibly over the weather and is vociferously complaining and suggesting a relocation to warmer climes.
Basically
Luckily we do have some sunny 70-degree days in our forecast, and the extended outlook is showing temps closer to what you might actually expect in April (instead of this below freezing bullshit). So hopefully last night's snow really was Mother Nature's last hurrah -- although I'm pretty sure I said that literally this time last week.
Poor daffodils
In the meantime, I'm itching to get back into a semblance of normalcy, a regular routine, maybe some trail rides, lessons, and shows?
Plz to maybe horse show again?
At this point I would even settle for trail riding some summer-slick, shiny horses again!

Our GMO spring show is this weekend, but I don't feel like it's fair to enter either horse with the sporadic work schedule of the last 6 weeks, so we're regretfully sitting this one out. But hopefully we're on the downward side of this disgusting weather, and hopefully real, true actual spring, complete with warm days and sunshine, will grace us with her presence soon! :)

    1. The high today is mid-40s so I imagine it's all gone by now. Leaving MOAR MUD. I'm tired of that too 😭

    1. Initially we were supposed to get like 3 inches in the afternoon, and I was hoping it skipped us. Alas, it did not. Although it should be all gone by now. I'm just really really over the endless winter haha.
