Hunkering down that is...
What a cRaZy winter, huh?!
Wednesday The Farmer and I went foxhunting and were sweaty and steamy as we started preparations, but soaked and shivering by the time we had all the critters tucked in that night.
Horses were equally confused as we tore blankets off, then threw them back on.
Bathing off mud in the am, hot mashes for dinner!
Monsoon rains led into snow squals...
66 degrees dropped to 26!!!
All this makes for LOTS of extra chores.
Right now I'm pampering my family w/cocoa n cookies,
Kids got a last minute day off from school due to snow!
|Love seeing them cuddled up together watching a movie!|
but rest assured the critters came first...
The horses are bundled like bugs in TWO rugs!
The goats are snuggling in their straw
|'til I woke 'em up!|
Only the chickens and guineas appear to be indifferent to these swings...
Time to throw more wood on the fire...
|The Farmer works HARD to gather n split ALL our firewood so we pay NO heating bills!|
IF I can step over the piles of animals sleeping in front of the woodstove!
|Excuse the wood ashes n such from cramming wood in the stove nonstop!|
|Shhh...cammo kitty doesn't want to be seen sleepin on the job.|
Now I'm off to curl up too before heading back out to start chores all over again.
Stay warm friends!
