I think I’ve finally made peace with the riding obstructionist part of winter. Somehow, in the last week or so, I managed to just stop feeling guilty on days I can’t ride. I’m lining up indoor projects instead: lots of cleaning & cooking, some very initial organizing with the anticipation of moving later this spring. I will drop all of it like a hot potato as soon as the weather climbs back out of the Arctic.
In the meantime, I’m averaging about two rides a week. Last week, Friday and Saturday. Friday was a terrific schooling session under saddle. Saturday was a really productive longeing session.
Sunday, the temps were only into the double digits…when there was a clinic in the indoor. Monday I had to travel for work during the only double digit temperatures. Today I’ll be at work. Wednesday it won’t climb into double digits at all. Thursday and Saturday look the most promising this week.
We’re not getting hardly any snow from the blizzard. It’s hitting southern New England. Vermont is getting sort of spitty little haze right now, and we’re probably not going to accumulate beyond 8″. So basically a normal Tuesday here.
I did check on Tristan on Sunday amidst house-viewing. The edema is gone, thankfully, and he was happy and chipper and providing good babysitting guidance.
