So I sort of let the blog’s anniversary (8 years as of April 23!!!) slip on past with little-to-no fanfare…
Most of the time it doesn’t seem like I’ve been blogging that long. Probably because I am inconsistent, not at all prolific, and sometimes goes for chunks of time running radio silent, or with one post a month. And then I go do something radical like this month and give you three posts in a row.
Sometimes I feel like I don’t have a ton to talk about, especially now. I don’t have my pony in my backyard to talk about her daily antics, or even close enough by to justify frequent trips to the barn just to see her. Would love to…but a barn that’s 25+ miles one way means that’s just not practical. And when I do ride…there’s nothing particularly earth-shattering about another round of arena circles.
I know things will change…this is just another “season” in life…but in the meantime, it means I’m a bit uninspired right now. But the silver lining of the whole thing is that it is giving me a chance to do things like spend time with my boyfriend and explore some non-horsey pursuits, and put a lot of time into my puppy during this critical and impressionable age of turning her into a good canine citizen.
