I am so excited! After 2 1/2 months of no driving (pending cataract surgery), I’m finally getting close to resuming my normal schedule–and being able to spend time with my horses once again!
And–best of all–I can see very well indeed. Much better than I’ve been able to see for decades, and all without contact lenses or glasses. That feels like a miracle.
Wintertime is a good time to schedule such a lengthy “time off,” I suppose, given the number of days that it’s truly unpleasant to be at the barn. But I have missed my guys SO much! I managed to visit, usually only for a drive-by feeding, once or twice each week…but as any horse lover knows, that is NOT enough.
I have some ideas of new ways I want to work with them–Carolyn Resnick has great suggestions, both in her online classes and on her blog. But mostly, for the first few days, I just want to hang out with them–that’s what I’ve missed the most.
The weather for the next week is warm(ish) and sunny–perfect timing! I’ll let you know how it goes.
