Only two more days and the madness will be finished (hoping). All the calls, all the signs...so tiring.
Saturday ended up being a beautiful Fall day. Mailing (son's girlfriend) and I did go horseback riding. We went to Haycock Stables in Perkasie and had a trail ride through Nockamixon State Park. It was nice, but not as much fun as we were hoping for. The horses only walked...not even a trot! And they stayed in single file the entire time so that Mailing and I couldn't even ride together. It was a fairly large group we were with - a bunch of 14 year old girls who were cute and pretty funny. The annoying thing was that one of the owners kept asking me (after I had paid) if I was going to leave a tip. Really? About 5 times she asked me before the ride and another 4-5 times when we got back. Oy vey. Here is Mailing on Piper. I am on Moose. What a name! And Moose was slow...I kept having to nudge (kick) him to get him to move!
Afterwards we went back to Colin & Mailing's for dinner: Lemon Chicken Orzo soup and Crab Cakes. They are both fabulous cooks.
Turns out both Talbot and Marcel enjoy a little whipped cream:
It was a fun day, but I was beat afterwards...and yes, a sore butt for sure. At least I was able to get on and off the horse ok (and Moose was BIG).
Today was spent doing a ton of laundry and grocery shopping and tomorrow it is back to reality and work.
