I wish you all a Happy Easter!

This year it seems as if we better enjoy it inside, as outside it is rain, sleet and snow.
Of course, to us daunting Horsepeople that doesn't matter much.
Out and about in all types of weather, we are.
As they say here in Norway; "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing".

I believe I have had my share of snow now.

I want to curl up in a sunny corner and feel the warmth of sun in my face, to feel that spring finally has arrived.
It is spring enough to have the stable yard turned into a mud bath though.
Muckboots are just one of the best inventions ever!

Comes highly recommended

The arenas are no better, so I have been up early to be able to ride in the indoor arena nearby.

The weather forecast says it will be some sun tomorrow.
I am crossing my fingers.

In the meantime, it is salmon for dinner. Yummy!

Enjoy your Easter!

What a beautiful meal! What are the greens?
Thank you for your worry. Life has been a little bumpy lately, but I'm working on it.

Thanks for your comments and nice wishes everyone!

Mugs - I hope things have improved?
The greens are baked fennel and a green salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, pomegranate and pine nuts (hope I got the translation right!)

Hi mommyrides (love your name!) and welcome!

I will pass on your nice comment about the photos to my daughter, as she is the one taking the good photos (I am just taking the ones on trail). She will be very happy for your kind words!

And yes, the muck boots are wonderful. Whether it is freezing cold with snow, or as it is now, deep mud. Comes in handy whatever.
