Mid-Week Photo Dump

I sat here for a while and thought about writing a real post, but the words just aren't there. Thanks writer's block. It's been a minute. Instead just enjoy some snapshots from the last 24 hours. It was a busy Wednesday!
My new papasan cushion came. It was vacuum sealed and packed into a deceptively small box, and then exploded out of it's packaging once I tried to open it. It's still "growing", but I couldn't be more pleased with how well it matches everything else!
I bought the ombre riding tights from SmartPak after FB advertised them to me approximately 19349472 times. No regrets. I love them. That's not an affiliate link or anything, I just really like them... lol. 
Ruby was absolutely fantastic for our ride last night. I could probably just get right on instead of lunging first at this point, but I'm still playing it safer than necessary I think. 
How many different shades of teal can I get in one photo?
Even more if I'd gotten her bonnet in the first shot! It's my infamous "LOOK UP" ITBF bonnet, haha. 
I beat the storm for a really good ride. The left lead was so accessible and adjustable, it was like we'd never taken so long off. The right lead was it's normal kind of shit show, but god that left lead canter. Amazing.

Then I puttered around in my tack shed organizing and throwing out old stuff. I had completely forgotten I owned these two pairs of half chaps, lol. 
Just sitting in my chair, staring at my bridles. 
Trying to figure out where to hang my whip rack. For someone who rarely rides with a whip, I own a lot of sparkly whips, haha. 
DH had to come try out the chair. 
That horse trailer cookie jar is going to be perfect for horse treats, lol. 
Anyway... just trying to make it through the week so I can relax and enjoy a 3-day weekend! How about you?

    1. Isn't the cookie jar fun? A friend gave it to me like four years ago and I've just been saving it, haha. it was taped up in bubble wrap and some of the tape left residue on it, so I probably need to scrub it down. But I just thought it was so fun!
