Because I couldn't motivate myself to make lunch for work today, I had to go out to get something that is more nutritious, even if it's only slightly so, than what's available in the snack machines here at work. Having decided on McDonald's, I went through the drive-thru and as I came out the other side, it had occurred to me that it'd been awhile since I'd driven through my "horse neighborhood". I was in no big hurry to get back to work and I was "right there" so why not? It's a gorgeous day today. Not to hot. A nice breeze. Oh wait. Scratch that. It wasn't breezy, it was actually quite windy. It was still nice out, though, and soon enough I'd have to go back to the office where the thermostat is kept too low and we get froze. Appreciated during the hot summer months, but not so much in the winter. Most of the time when I visit this neighborhood, I don't see anyone out on horseback, which is a shame. They have some trails that go between houses...
ANYWAY...so I drove around a bit more, taking random photos. This house, I was hoping to get a shot of the horses, but the owner was out in the corral, doing something with what appeared to be jump standards so I took a picture of the trail sign instead
And then there's this trailer...
I figure one of the reasons for there not being anyone out on such a nice day is because of the wind. Wind causes things to move and we all know how horses react when things start moving unexpectedly.
The only drawback to my little drives is my lunch being cold by the time I get back to my desk, but today, with the weather being as nice as it was (I had both front windows down), it was worth it.
On Friday Breyer sent an email for a contest to win a Ram model.
Well, I guess I'd better get back to work. Yay. At least it's more than half over.
