It’s Melty!

/ posted in: General

I’m supposed to be on my way to VA right now to judge a trail ride this weekend. It got canceled and I’m sad about that but I’m very glad that I won’t be spending the weekend working in this heat. It would be very melty. (They didn’t cancel because of the heat. These folks are crazy that way.)

Here’s how melty it is here. I’m greeted by this every night when I come home. My stevia plant has sad leaves.


After I water it by the next morning it has happy leaves again.


I haven’t been taking Freckles jogging because of the heat.  I may risk my own life to go out in this but I won’t take the dog.  The dog needs to go though since she has enough energy to stay up all night and chase the cat.  We got up early today and headed off to the woods. I tried to run but when I passed the dog and was dragging her along I realized we had a problem.  She apparently has more sense than me.  We walked instead.  She was right.  I was sweating like crazy at 7:00 AM in the woods.  Yep, glad I’m not going to be in the woods all weekend.  My new workout mantra should be “What Would Freckles Do?”  I’ve decided that my 5K in Atlanta next month will definitely be a run/walk affair.

Because this weekend’s ride got canceled I got picked up to judge a ride in AL around Halloween.  They mentioned in passing that there was a costume contest.  That sealed it for me.  I need to take some costumes too that I can judge in and not scare the horses.  I have until October to find some good ones!
