booking it

Finished Anthony Doerr's All The Light We Cannot See and so loved the book. He creates vivid and clear images and a story that flows beautifully. I'm looking at his other work now and am eager to read more.

I read and enjoyed Andrea Barrett's Voyage of the Narwhal years back and am just now getting around to reading her book of stories, Ship Fever. Two stories in and two thumbs up.


Keil Bay and I had a lovely ride yesterday. I had meant to ride Cody too but didn't time things well. He needs the work and I'm going to have to figure out how to make it happen. Or maybe I should use the word "allow" - I want it to be a flow and not a checking things off a list kind of ride with him. He deserves it.

Mostly my days are geared around writing, riding, and keeping up with house and barn chores. Some days I have clients, other days there are errands to run in town or appointments to keep. Putting two rides in the day will change things, but there has to be a way to do it gracefully so that I bring my best self to both horses.

Any advice is welcome!!

I like All The Light We Cannot See too. I'm still reading the Outlander series. Only get in about a chapter a day because I'm so busy but that's okay. I enjoy the story and this way it lasts longer.

It's hard to have so many things to do and get rides in too. My routine is, or used to be when I had two horses to ride :( , was to ride both first thing in the morning after feeding time and before chores. This way you have the rest of the day to take care of what needs to be done.

After I posted this yesterday that is exactly what I did today - went out and rode Keil and then Cody and then proceeded with the rest of the day. It was lovely to be on Cody again!

I love that Outlander is going to last you such a good long time. It's a great series!
