Cold and rainy on the outside, warm and cozy on the inside!

It's a rainy, windy September day but in the house there's a rocking' beat and the scent of blueberry muffins baking in the oven. Cody is at school today, so it's just me and the dynamic duo. Micah is on my lap even as I type this, cuddling. He has a bad cold, (we all have colds), and he is feeling kind of pathetic. His big brother keeps hurting him and just now he bonked his own face on the kitchen table, so that was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak.

It is not quite noon and I am already fizzling out. Haha. Well, I have had a productive day so far, so maybe that's okay. I was awake before 7 a.m. (blech) and I was all prepared to walk Cody to the bus but Mike kindly took him in the vehicle instead because of the miserable weather. As a result, I was saved a good chunk of time where I would have normally been outside, so I changed into my workout clothes and got a whole workout done before 8:30 a.m. Phew! I was happy about that. Micah did not wake up until I was done showering, so I was very grateful. That saves me having to do it after lunch, and I will be able to write instead. I am on chapter 11 now, and finally it is going somewhere.

I have no other big plans today except for maybe a trip to get the mail later today, after Cody gets home. I must mention though that yesterday was a beautiful day and I took advantage by going for a ride with my sister Andrea in the evening. I'm talking about horseback riding, in case that was not clear. I still have not ridden my own horse, and it is feeling like maybe I will not be riding her this fall at all, but this was my third ride since my fall last year and I had no fear this time around, or really any nervousness either. I enjoyed it immensely, and I was very happy with my progress. I will still be nervous to ride Sasha for the first time, but like I said, it looks like it will be a while before that happens.

My muffins are ready to come out of the oven, so it is time for me to sign off. Bye for now.
