Damn it’s cold!

Too cold for this time of year.  It rained most of the day yesterday and it’s overcast and dreary today.  I had the heat on for a while this morning!  After milking I put the goats and calf out and instead of grazing, like they should be, they are all lined up at the fence wanting in.  Lazy dairy butts!  They are going to stay out until I start to get ready to go on my interview.

Petunia is lying in a pile of mud, happy as a pig could be.  I’ll have to get her some more food when I go out.  She seems to think she is going to get fed every time she sees us.  You should see her running laps around the garden when she sees a car pull into the driveway.

Yesterday afternoon, I took the dogs and did two loops around the back 100 acres.  That took the edge off them, but they were still wired for sound.  Liath seems to be doing well down with the sheep.  The sheep are not terribly happy because the grass in their enclosure is eaten down.  I hope the forecast is right and the sun comes out later today and tomorrow so we can reset the fence tomorrow afternoon when we get back from visiting Wally’s mother.

Wally’s mother made it through the surgery and she’s still doing well.  They may discharge her as early as tomorrow.  She’ll go into a rehab facility for a while.

I spent a good part of the morning putting up my summer work clothes, most of which have not been worn at all this summer, and taking out my winter clothes.  Hopefully, they’ll get worn.  I have to say though, I’m much happier in shorts or sweat pants than I am in work clothes.  What could be more fun for bored cats than to climb in and out of storage boxes?  I wonder why it is, living in North Carolina, that I have more winter clothes than summer.  Just as soon as I get all the summer clothes packed up, it will return to 90 degrees.

Until later …

  1. How cold is it?? LOL Just kidding Michele. It’s about 37 degrees here with wet snow falling. The kind that doesn’t stick to the ground.

    Good luck on your interview today!!! Hope it all works out for you.

    Glad to hear that Wally’s mom’s surgery went well. It’s hard on older people to have surgery. I wish her the best.
