Roosters & Storms
Today was a good day of storm prep, outdoor chores, and visiting friends. I went over to Patty and Marks for hay and we carried bales up the hill from the barn on sleds and then rode the sleds back down the hill to get more hay. It was a blast! Patty;s big horses ran alongside us and Gibson was right on my tail. A quick, but perfect memory.
Right now the wood stove in the farmhouse is glowing, candles are lit behind the statue of Brigit, and the dogs are asleep on the daybed. I am ready for the storm with plenty of firewood, all the roofs raked, the animals fed, watered, and given extra grain and bedding, and pens and electric fences dug out and tested. As tough as the first storms were I am getting used to the extra effort and dusting off my snowshoes for tomorrows storm. I have lost 8 pounds since January and am enjoying feeling a bit lighter on my feet and think the work out of a snowshoe hike around the farm and up the mountain will be wonderful tomorrow! I will bring my camera for sure!
Stay safe, stay warm, sleep well.
