That's just how I feel these past few weeks, and it will surely pass. The intense cold and heavy snow is just a bit more of a challenge, but June has to come, doesn't it? All that said, the farm is doing fine. Everyone is in great shape, eating well, hydrated, and tucked in for the night. Well, mostly everyone. The sheep and horses and goats are all set but I still have to run outside with the pigs dinner and shovel the snow off their shelter roof. I am working up the courage right now, with the teapot heating up on the wood stove and a fire roaring close to me.
Quark is still inside because I don't have the heart to send him out into this deep snow knowing he is going to be spending all his time in the honey suckle bush. He is enjoying walking around the farmhouse eating the dogs food when they aren't looking, scaring the cat, and clucking about. I don't trust the dogs to keep it civil if I'm not watching them so he's in the crate when I am outdoors.
Much was done indoors, by the way. I updated the Birchthorn Project and got work done on several client logos.Working on comps for some farms and emailing final files to another. Proud of that design work and having fun working on it, even if it is just a few hours at a time. I like that there isn't much idle time around here these days. Be it indoors or out I am using my body and mind, and still finding time to pick up the guitar, fiddle, or tin whistle just to blow off steam and relax. I may be a little weary but you can't not smile after a hot toddy and a waltz on the banjo. I love a good waltz, do I ever.
Tonight after the Pegs are all settled in and there is nothing to do but come indoors and keep the home fire burning, I'll be watching the movie The Babadook. I chickened out last night but I think tonight is the night for a scary story. I mean, I can't look like a chicken in front of Quark. He may get the wrong idea....
