I had a really busy week with appointments in the middle of my off time, so it didn't give me much of an opportunity to spend any quality time at the barn. Last weekend and this weekend I've had a crazy schedule at work (working midnight shifts to cover for a co-worker) so I didn't want to ride Lilly without being rested and ready to mentally commit to her.
Another part of me is SO happy with where she's at, that I feel like I don't have to go over every day to check on her and make sure everything is ok. The BO emails or calls if there's an issue and nothing significant has come up, so I've just been staying home enjoying some me time. It has actually been very therapeutic. This is the first time in over a year that she's been happy, healthy, and in a good place.
I used this week to relax and recharge and not worry myself sick about how Lilly is doing at the barn. I took some time to work on my second favorite hobby... something that I haven't been able to do for a very long time.
I have some cherry tomato plants in a self watering planter (we have way too much clay for a "normal" garden), hanging baskets, potted flowers, and I gave the shade garden in the backyard a makeover:
|Hostas, Heucheras, Lilies of the Valley, and Aquilegia|
I have a few plants left to dress up the area around the mailbox and I'll have all my little garden projects complete.
Next week I'll get back to my regularly scheduled program. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
