Top that with meetings, FFA contests and yield checks for work.
I can't forget those nights at the horse barn either! Louie is riding really great these days! We have one more IPHA show this season and then it's our 'off season'. And all that really means is I'm still riding a couple nights a week, but not showing until next Spring.
To round out the work week, tonight my pal Maggie and I are headed to Springfield for an Aaron Watson concert! I talked a bit about him in this post and I've heard some amazing things about his shows. Pretty excited for some 'Red Dirt' country music to come to the flatlands of Illinois!
Then this weekend is the annual Apple and Pork Festival! Close your eyes and envision: flea markets, crafters, all the apple things... Cider. Dumplings. Fritters.
It's a Fall lover's paradise! Too bad (or not really if you're trying to keep your horse from putting on his winter hair coat for just another week or so!) there's talk of it being in the mid to upper 80's this weekend!
I'm hoping the festival will inspire me to dig out all my fall decor and get the house in the spirit of the season!
How did you spend your week? Have any fun plans for the weekend?
