So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

A Sunday stroll

Having delivered our vote at the local pub(!), Dave and I decided on a lunch at the Diktler Hut in Weisspriach, our favourite hostelery. There was still a little ice through the woods,  but the day was glorious, warm with clear skies. We indulged in sausage and saurkraut and shared a Kasierschmarn, which got extra points for coming with Apfel Muss, not with bottled cherries! Then out little view was changed with the arrival of two sweaty little Icelandic horses and their riders, who parked them and came over for lunch.

Dave  and Edith have said the me several times that I ought to go back to working with horses and I have tried to explain to them why I wont.Working for Lois burnt me out, leading rides out was making me more and more stressed. Working with Edith with the therapy horses didn’t gel either. So I had to get another job. A job that could support us, that gave me regular hours where I had at least some weekends off to enjoy my life here. I have gone back to do little bits of work but that has been really unsettling, a  form of torture.  I’m a single  minded person, and it has to be all or nothing. So I have to walk away. Some of it was Dave considered it an obsession, to me it was just how horses are.  I also felt that God had said it was time to move on.  So I haven’t ridden for over two years, and would need time to get back into it.  But is God changingmy heart in view of my  lack of work? I really am not interested in horses at the moment but have said I will respond if he sends a job my way.

So was this an improved view or not? Funny I just noticed a theme in the book blog too……
