What to say about July? It’s been an exhausting month.
I love the Changing Seasons posts. I love to read about my fellow bloggers’ months in review and I also love to go back through my personal posts at the end of each month and read about what I was doing this time last year.
As I sit down to write this one I struggle with what to memorialize about the past month. In a year will I want to read about how our president is proudly assaulting our citizens in the streets of Portland? Will I want to remember that I lost an uncle to Covid with another still in the hospital, while my friends and family share misinformation about the disease? Should I re-live the calls I had to make this month to tell many of my co-workers that they no longer had a job? Do I need a written log that my love for people and hope for humanity was at an all time low at the end of this month?
Probably not, but there it is. Let’s hope in a year’s time I look back at that paragraph and laugh as I muse about what a tough month it was and how happy I am that we are all in a different place.
Have no fear friends. It wasn’t all bad. I was still able to find beauty in the world and take solace in animals and nature.
I did some running. Some hiking, one adventure which was already shared in THIS post.
I spent many hours in the saddle, most at home, but we ventured off property a couple of times, once with friends and once on our own.
Hubby & I had a lovely sunset paddle with dear friends. It rained some and we were treated to a rainbow as we watched an Osprey hunt and catch a fish.
I also took a lot of pictures of horses this month. For friends. Also for our local horse rescue whose funds are quickly drying up as they are unable to host fundraisers in the time of Covid. They wanted some images to refresh their online presence.
As we head into August, I hope you are all staying well and finding beauty in your corner of the world.
