A Wonderful Day

What a glorious day! I was up early, but not too early, and, after eating, headed for the garden. Got another planting of green beans, carrots, lettuces and radishes in. I fed the critters. I mowed the strawberries. (You know, I shoulda taken a picture of that. It would have helped when I post about the strawberry renovation I'm working on. Oh, well.) I picked the hot peppers. Then I got heat exhaustion. Really. I had been working about two hours, and realized I was hot, shaky, headachy and not thinking clearly. I headed inside, where I tried the Cure; a glass of water. Didn't work fast enough, so I got into a cool shower. What a lovely thing that was!

I recovered quickly, and, after lunch, got my minions to help me clean house. After a nap, I rode my horse. I haven't had time to do that in ages, and it was lovely. She's learning to neckrein, at the age of 18. As that appears, according to this website, to be about 42 years in human years, well, she's younger than I, and should be able to learn! But, given that I've never really taught a horse much of anything, I'm feeling pretty good about it. Especially since I ended my ride with a nice wash-up and a Shiner Bock!

Tonight Jay and Kris are cooking dinner for us; ribeyes, corn on the cob, potatoes au gratin (well, I did make those) and some of that cucumber salad I mentioned the other day. I can smell the mesquite and the potatoes, so I'd better let you all go. Here's something to enjoy while you're surfing the web tonight.
