“Wear some clothes today, eh?” was the recommendation of my husband this morning. Before your imagination runs amok, it was his way of telling Victoria and I that it was cold outside and that warm clothing was the order of the day. So, layered up with fleece-lined jeans and chinks, t-shirt, flannel shirt, sweatshirt, gloves, scarf, hat, and Carhartt… we headed out the door to go saddle our horses. Victoria had come over last night, bringing her troop back over just to celebrate her 30th birthday with us. Thirty. THIRTY! Holy cow… how did that happen????
Although the day was bright and sunny, the thermometer was low and there was just enough breeze that we didn’t ever shed any layers despite riding until 3 pm. We could go down a ravine and almost heat up enough you *thought* about peeling off a layer… then you’d top out on the other side and that breeze would hit you again, causing you to instinctively turtle up. Sucking your shoulders up, your head down into your scarf, trying to cover your body as much as you could!
It was still a gorgeous day for gathering cows!
We had offered to put this off a day… but Victoria WANTED to ride on her birthday… and, really, when things look like this… why wouldn’t you???
I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful birthday, my dear! Even if we did have to “wear some clothes today”!!!
