Just about the time I think, “I wish summer could last all year.” I realize I don’t fully mean it.
Yes, there is a part of me that longs for summer days, slick horses, dry trails and the smell of the warm earth.
But there is another part of me that equally longs for chilly nights, fuzzy ponies, and a down season to recover from the pace of summer.
We chased summer when we lived in the motorhome. It was fun…but it left me longing for fall, winter, and downtime.
Maybe the key for me is to embrace both. Grateful for the change and the ability to appreciate what was and what is to come.

Just watched your video for the first time bareback and bridles. It made me cry. The ride brought back great memories of my first barrel horse and certainly made me think of my dad. Thank you!
Yes I love summer-however you left out fall. September, October, and some of November is great. The weather is beautiful and so is the scenery–and not too many bugs!!! I also enjoy winter but wish it was just the months of December and January and then it would be nice again 🙂 It would seem odd living somewhere with no snow. I do like the down time of those months, gives me time to relax, but as soon as March is over I am looking forward to the nice weather. For some reason our spring weather is not as nice at it used to be. I remember nice spring days in April and May now it just seems like “boom” summer is here.
I just wrote this under my FB comments, “Lol..fall is easily my favorite time of the year. No question! So much so that I left it out because, well, it is so perfect! Summer can be too hot, winter can be to cold…but fall…I avoided it completely because I’m so totally bias:)”
I also remember spring being a nice season…but I agree with you that it doesn’t seem quite like it used to. I may plant bulbs this fall and see if I can perk things up…
Ok–you better get those bulbs planted–I will remember this post in April/May. LOL
…I feel accountability sneaking up on me…
