Friday evening. The end of another long week at school… but spring break is on the horizon! After that, the REAL countdown begins!
This evening, straight from school, I went to the barn and had a riding lesson. Does it make my day longer? Sure. But I don´t mind a bit. No matter what kind of day I´ve had, I can always count on the sense of calm I feel as soon as I walk into the barn. It´s the smell. Really. The smell of pine shavings, hay, horses, and yes, even manure, all blended together is soothing to me. That, and the sounds of a quiet barn – horses munching hay, drinking, moving around their stalls, some even nickering to me to bring them carrots. I walk in the barn, and take a deep breath. *Inhale* *Exhale* Ahhhh…..
Thank you for the nice ride tonight, Vee. See you next week.
