Heat Wave

Well I made it four straight weeks posting every day and now I'm completely out of content 🤣 We were under a heat advisory alllll this week and it was GROSS 🤢 Monday night we actually had a cool front blow through around the time I got home, and I had a brief hope that I could sneak in a ride before my GMO meeting, but as I walked outside to tack up Ruby, a car pulled into my driveway...sigh. DH set up an appointment for someone to look at our old boat (because my house is starting to look like a boat lot!) and of course he wasn't home yet so I had to answer questions about the boat for 45 minutes, which then made me almost late for my GMO meeting.... 🤬 Bah. 

I did get this nice plaque at the meeting to add to my wall! Haha. I've now won for two separate articles, a photograph, and now the website!

🤦‍♀️

A sampling of our temps this week

I also spent the better part of the week doing battle with a juvenile raccoon who decided my feed room was his own personal domain. 

Trash panda. 

Why are their little hands so cute? 

You know it's stupid hot when at quarter after nine the heat index is still 95 🥵

Thanks Aimee 🤣

Little bastard

Finally caught him last night, so hopefully now we stop having issues. 

This weekend there is a recognized show at the NEC, and my new instructor's barn has several horses and riders showing, so I'm probably going to spend some time up there this weekend watching tests :)

    1. Oh fun! I need to get a copy of ride times to plan out when I need to be there 😊 when are you riding and where are you stabling? Brianna said they're just running the one ring so surely I'll be able to catch your rides!

    2. I'm stall 142 (with Catlin Farms). And ride at 12:40 and 4:30 Saturday and 1:50 Sunday. :)

      But I'll be around most of the day both days because driving back and forth is a bit far for me once I'm there.

    3. I found the ride times/stabling and that's the same aisle as Epique it looks like, so I will obviously see you 😆 cool!

  3. Went through a coon trapping/relocating phase earlier in the summer lol. Definitely prefer the juveniles. Yours looks appropriately chastened. 😆

    1. I think I prefer the raccoons to the family of skunks we had under the feed room a few years back 🤣

    1. He was definitely sad to lose out on his endless buffet of cat food 🤣
