...I wonder how many times we can shovel this winter without going mad?
Best not to think about it.
Today is for some last gift wrapping and some xmas baking (rolled shortbread cookies). I'm also making a butternut squash soup for dinner since I picked up a freshly baked baguette at the baker's this morning - along with the most calorific almond croissants I have ever eaten in my life (I feel sick and buttery after one, lol).
I hope yesterday's trail riding burned enough calories in advance or I won't fit in my pants tomorrow.
Who uses that much butter in a pastry?!
And yes, you read right: yesterday I got to cross an item off my "wish to do before I die" list: to ride my own horse on trails behind my own house!! It was amazing and I can't wait to go again, weather willing. My friend and I only rode for 35 minutes as the snow was quite deep in places, it tires the horses out quickly and we wanted to test Jack first and not push him too much - he's old and we don't know his fitness level yet.
He loved it as much as we did and is totally fine, wooo!
Next ride we can go for an hour - yey!
Right, time to head out to the barn to build the girls a couple of extra nesting boxes, along with a bajillion things I need to do. I'm absolutely buzzing on sugar and caffeine right now so I'll put it to good use!
Holiday cheer right back at ya!
