Friday 24 March
Winter wasn't that bad. Wasn't that good. But wasn't bad. My best indicator of what kind of winter we had is my hat. I have a sheepskin hat.
It's a very nice warm hat. And...I only use it when it gets ...and stays...very very cold. I never even took it out of its bag this season. When I don't use my hat all season? It wasn't a bad winter! We even had a week in February where it was in the 60s. We had windows open for two or three days straight. Caught up on a lot of barn work. It looked very promising!
March came around and relief was in sight. You see, it almost never gets bitter cold in March and if it does? It doesn't last long. Well. I should know better. The first weekend in March it was 4 degrees. It got cold. And it stayed cold. This *never* happens in March! We can have blizzards in April but it never gets cold like this.
We had a full on blizzard 10 days ago and the snow still hasn't melted. I never minded the snow much. It's the cold I really hate. But make no mistake. Barn work sucks in the cold and it's a long trip to the manure pile and back in the snow!
So. Where have I been?! Hiatus? No. Just busy. Crazy busy. Between employment and barn work and trips to the gym I just haven't had time to blog. I want to try and get back on board. I started blogging for me. Keeping track of things over time and after so many years I enjoy going to back through it all and recalling where I was and the things I was doing.
