We're still dry as a desert, but at least it's cooled off. And it's supposed to stay that way for awhile.
I took my first evening horseback ride in weeks, maybe even months. With high temps in the 90's, I've been forced to ride at dawn this summer in order to beat the heat.
Not today. There was a cloud cover and a nice breeze. Blue and I enjoyed the evening, although I had forgotten how the traffic situation is at "rush hour". Yes, even in the country there is a rush hour.
If the weather-guessers are right, the long hot summer is over.
Oh, I taught Blue a new thing: When I first got him almost four years ago, I tried to get him to approach the mailbox and allow me to reach down and collect the mail. He freaked out then, and I hadn't bothered to try it again.
Since he's gotten so laid-back this year, I gave it another try. Oh, he protested for awhile. But finally he realized it wasn't worth the effort and let me get my mail.
The grandson applied for a new and better-paying job today. I hope he gets it. I'm proud of him for trying to better himself.
Cliff and I are still considering motorcycle options.
Oh, and I finally bought a 300 GB external hard drive for a hundred bucks and copied all my beloved pictures, documents and music onto it. Next time I have a computer crash, I won't be crying (except for the $$$ it costs to buy a new computer).
Life is good.
