I’ve had a bit of an ‘interesting’ week so far. Now, let me be clear, I just mean somewhat stressful, nothing like what people in Beirut are struggling to deal with in the aftermath of their disaster. No! My problems are small by comparison and in truth I lead a charmed life. But on Wednesday morning I realized I was showing signs of stress. What to do? Well, lucky me, Wednesday is the day I take Biasini on a trail ride .
We set off starting on the trails that are on the Oakcrest Farm property. The woods were very quiet. Only the occasional bird call. Perhaps the birds all take a quiet time at midday.
We headed toward the “Goat Trail”. That trail is a favorite of mine and Biasini’s. Then we continued on to the York Regional Forest Trails. We followed the blue trail. I call it the blue trail as some of the trees have blue marks on them to direct people who are walking.
We were out for about 45 minutes. What a glorious ride! When we got back to the barn I gave Biasini an apple treat. The stress had lifted off me and floated away, up into the trees. Biasini is my Sanity Saver.
