Another good day

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I had a great day, again. I got to mow the whole lawn, until I ran out of gas! emoticon However, I got to pull weeds away from one of my flower beds too. It was beautiful today!

I also got to ride Rascal, my fave buddy! He's so smart! I'm a little afraid to ride him out of the round pen though because last summer, he ran off with me twice and all I could do was hang on for dear life! It was the fastest I've ever ridden a horse, and exhilarating, but frightening at the same time! So, I'm getting him soft again and riding him in the round pen only until I feel like I can trust him and that he'll listen to me.

I walked a lot of the property and found that some of the posts were out of the ground down in the gully (or holler as my grandma called it), so we had to fix them. We got that done too!

My Bodymedia armband said that I burned 3053 calories and took 18,335 steps today. I'm not sure that's correct because of the bouncing that the riding mower does when I'm on it. So, I'm taking that with a grain of salt.

Have a great night everyone! God's blessings to you! emoticon

    Yay for getting stuff done! There is always a sense of accomplishment when you can check things off that chore list! I bet it is great to have a horse that you can just go out and ride anytime you want....sigh. Let me know if you need any help riding those horses of yours....I really loved being on one this past weekend at the spark rally (it had been since vacation in 2007 that I had been on a horse).
    I think you probably walked further than you think - you should count all those steps since I think your gadget is probably pretty accurate.
    Hope you have another great day!

    It's interesting that you say you got to mow the lawn and you got to pull weeds. I say I got to when I got to have a filet mignon and baked potato with sour cream. The lawn and weeds I think about for days and then are so glad when they are over. Best wishes, Glenn
