Weather or Not
Chores. Equal parts joy and challenge. Today, I looked out on a beautiful sight - yesterday's sleet and ice had changed in to a wonderful world of mist and rime. The air was cold, but still. And everybody was hungry. Overcoming the urge to curl up with a blanket and a hot cup of tea, I bundled up and ventured out. The sheep are always overjoyed to see me, bucking and cavorting like babies. The donkeys are the most vocal - braying a deafening, "Where have you been? Our trough is empty!" The alpacas are pretty patient, for the most part, except Moonstruck, who whines when he sees me like a three year old at Toys R Us. Of the chickens, only Victor makes much of a fuss, particularly on a foggy day when it's safer for them to stay cooped up.
Now the chores are done, and I think I will have that cup of tea.
